Jim Black gave us our first look at the new the EZ-Sport. Commercially available at Hoigaards, with an MSRP of $949. It's a bit like a bargain priced Tour Easy, with a taller seat, made in Taiwan. Rides like a Tour Easy. Coasting, it's 3-4mph faster than an EZ-1. Probably due to better tires, in larger (26/20) diameters. 38lbs without fenders/accessories.

Jim had equipped it with one of his surrey type roofs. Jim was testing acrylic struts in front on this one. Mark promptly broke one of the struts, so it appears acrylic is a bit too brittle.
