Linear Recumbents folding Roadster was voted the Bent Rider Recumbent Bike of the Year for 2016!
“Linear’s designs have been slowly evolving over the years, and the bikes they build now have earned a very well-deserved and stellar reputation. The Roadster is already one of the best handling Short Wheelbase (SWB) recumbents that I’ve ridden and now the addition of a folding option just makes it that much better. And when Linear says it folds, they mean it really folds! Transporting a Roadster in any vehicle (including an airliner) is no challenge at all.” - Bryan Ball - 'BendRider Online Managing Editor
The short wheel base Roadster is available with USS or OSS.
I’m 6’2” and my 2016 Folding Linear Roadster folds, without tools, to under 45” long.
Folded it will easily fit in a Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla trunk.
We fit FOUR Linears, a card table, a repair stand, an exercise stand, two adults and our luggage INSIDE a Scion Xa and drove to Cincinnati for the 2015 Recumbent Cycle Con.
We could even see out the rear view mirror!
