Cycle Genius Falcon Recumbent Bicycles

The Falcon is perhaps the most versatile Cycle Genius recumbent. It is an LWB bike with a low BB with geometry somewhat similar to the popular RANS Stratus LE and Bacchetta Bellandaire. These bikes are versatile enough for commuting, fitness rides or touring. The 20” front 406 and 26” rear tires are common sizes; a lot of variety will be available when you need replacements. The Tektro mechanical disc brakes work about as well as V-brakes when dry and much better than V-brakes in wet weather.

The Falcon comes in one size and fits most Riders from about 5’2” to 6’3″. Shorter riders may find the handlebars are too close to their chest if so, they can turn the handlebar stem forward to gain a bit of distance. Taller riders may find they have to reach a bit for the bars.

As a sport-touring bike, it is good for moderately fast day tripping. For light tours, it would be fine. It should be fast enough on the flats to keep up with a lot of upright riders and most recumbents. The components are nice, as is the price.
