Linear Limo LR (Low Rider) 3.0 LWB USS Recumbent Bicycle



New Limo LR 3.0 Low Rider

New Limo LR 3.0 "Low Rider"

2011 is the 6th year the Linear Limo Recumbent Bike has been in production.

One of the things we hear from Linear owners is that their shorter friends can?t reach the ground from the Limo?s seat. We took this to heart and redesigned the Limo to make the Limo Low-Rider (LR). This is a commuting, day tripping and touring bike with a lower seat for riders from about 5? and up. Like the Limo it is available in sizes so taller riders can choose the Low Rider LR too. 


Linear Recumbent Bikes are Engineered in the USA and Made in the USA


Still a Long Wheel Base (LWB) recumbent with Under Seat Steering (USS) the Linear Limo LR LWB now comes standard with the excellent RANS seat and is the only aluminum recumbent with under seat steering made in the USA today.

Proudly Made in America

The Linear Limo LWB/USS recumbent is made in Alfred Station NY. If you want to enjoy comfortable transportation and low impact, outdoor exercise again the Limo Recumbent Touring Bike is a prime candidate. Linear owners have been riding their bikes around town and cross-country since the 80?s.


Since 1994 I have ridden close to 85,000 miles on the two Linear long wheelbase Linear bikes I have owned.

New features of the Linear Limo 3.0:

New rear frame, designed and tested to be the most rugged & reliable Linear Recumbent ever.

  • Avid bb-7 rear disk brake for sure stopping even when wet and long brake pad life.

  • Shimano Deore LX 9 speed rear derailleur.

  • Shimano Dura Ace 27 speed bar-con shifters.

  • Truvative Firex 3.3 GXP crank & axle with 48-36-26 touring gearing.

  • Hand laced wheels with Shimano Deore hubs and Sun CR18 rims.

As always, every Linear is Made in the USA

I would recommend the Linear LWB to first time bent buyers. Peter has made a lot of improvements to the design--more rigid, less noisy, better braking, and safer.
Enjoy the big grin.

Gary loves his Linear Recumbent Bike - The Linear Limo 3.0 USS


"I have now done several rides on my new Linear Limo. Everything works well! I really like the bar-con shifters, and the gearing on the 3.0. The accessory mount is sweet and with the fenders mounted I'm ready!
FYI, the USS is just the ticket for me. I've had several RANS bikes, as well as a Tour Easy, and as nice as they were, I was always seeing handle bars. The ergonomics of the USS system is also better to in my opinion."

~ Gary R.

Every Linear is fully assembled and adjusted. If the roads are not messy they are each test ridden. They are then slightly disassembled and shipped directly to you. We would be glad to email pictures to help you with the re-assembly.
If you prefer we can ship your Linear to a bike shop near you for final assembly.
