Be the first to know about all things T50.
We'll send you a free Training Plan for Tackling Your First 100 Mile Ride from Cruzbike's CEO Maria Parker, just for signing up.
Ride pain free.
Get back on the road.
If pain is keeping you from the adventure, camaraderie and fun of cycling, you’re not alone.
85% of recreational cyclists report pain in their wrists, back, neck and/or groin after a ride.*
The T50 is everything awesome about riding a bike, without the parts that hurt.

"If I ride a traditional bike, within about 5 minutes my neck is numb, my hands hurt, and I can't ride the bicycle. I have to get off. On the Cruzbike I can get on it and I can ride for 9, 10 hours, and I can get off and it's not like I've ridden for five minutes. It gives me back the riding that I didn't think I was ever going to have again."

"I was diagnosed about 20 years ago with Rheumatoid Arthritis. Not being able to ride was a real problem for me because many of our family outings involve cycling. The reclined position of Cruzbike completely eliminates all of the joint stress. There are many days it is really painful to walk but not at all to ride. THANK YOU CRUZBIKE!!"

The T50 saves your neck, back, wrists, groin and quite possibly your sex life by ending the pressure caused by the traditional bike riding position.

List members get first access to Early Bird offers.
"I've put more than 17,500 miles on my Cruzbike. I like the fact that I can ride as far as my legs will take me. Butt, arm, shoulder, and back pain are not an issue...My typical ride is my commute to work. That is 26 miles each way."
"I can’t imagine doing it on an upright bike. I felt sorry for the other people I met who were on those bikes; they had to use creams, chamois in their shorts, baby powder, etc. to deal with the chafing. We had none of that because we were riding Cruzbikes."
“It is very likely that I've ridden more days than not since I got my first Cruzbike!”
"I found the additional comfort of the Cruzbike on the Trainer allowed me to put in long hours to build a good base. In fact, I just did a Zwift Century ride in 5 hours"
"My all time favorite ride was our amazing tour across the country in 2014. We were both riding Cruzbikes.
I got mine just three weeks before we left, I had finally wised up!! ...we began our journey after dipping our rear wheels in the Pacific Ocean."
STEVEN KENTNER - Minn.
“I had a road bike and the aches and pains of the position made cycling a hassle. It was no fun and I rode as little as possible to get where I wanted to go. One hour on a Cruzbike and I was cruising along with a huge smile on my face.
I was sold.”

“The first time I rode a Cruzbike, it was so fun. It was like I was a kid again, and it truly did bring joy back into riding.”

Uses standard bike parts
Jim Parker, MD co-founded Cruzbike because he recognized the dangers of the traditional bike riding position.
THE T50 IS DESIGNED FOR COMFORT AND EASE
The laid back T50 riding position delivers all of the wellness benefits of traditional cycling with none of the drawbacks. And you won’t sacrifice performance. The frame adapts the compact drive train of a traditional bike to an incredibly fun, dare-we-say liberating riding position.
Our patented drive system beautifully accommodates industry standard components. Your local bike shop won’t need any special parts or knowledge to tune up your T50. It’s just like every other bike, but laid back!
Wellness and performance
We designed the T50 to accept all kinds of racks and storage systems. Heading to the farmer’s market, cruzing to the beach with a cooler, commuting, or touring? The T50 hauls your gear.
"Whether it's the last day of a seven day tour or the first ride of spring - my Cruzbike fits and feels comfy, like my Sunday morning jammies. No kidding! It just feels right."

THIS IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM OTHER KICKSTARTERS
We are so excited about this bike's potential to get more people to ride bikes everyday that we decided to self-fund the design and production of the first, limited quantity run of T50s.
We're selling these as our most affordable bike ever as a loss leader to Early Bird backers of this Kickstarter campaign to get the word out about what great bikes these are.
That’s right. These bikes are already in production. That means there’s virtually no risk to you when the T50 gets funded. Early Bird backers will get their T50s in July.
As soon as we are funded, we will place a follow up order of 500 or more bikes (the manufacturer is ready for the word go), which lowers the per-item production costs, providing a sustainable profit margin.
We are so grateful for our early supporters. Early Bird quantities are limited, but you'll have first access. Thank you for helping us bring this awesome bike to the world in a big way.
