Strengths:    
Comfort
fun to ride
The rush down hills
Great for touring
Great conversation piece


Weaknesses:    
Not being able to get out of the saddle on hills. But they can climb, you just have to spin, spin, spin....


Bottom Line:   
A blast to ride. I got a great deal on mine, and basically changed all of the stock (suntour) parts. My bike (98 model) came with some low end parts which I think has changed for 99 now that Vision has some pull with the bike industry. Since mine is the short wheel base, I highly recommend a high end headset, like Chris King. The head set on SWB models take a beating.Otherwise, I just finished touring the pacific coast on mine, and I wouldn't have done it on any other bike. Great for touring, you don't even feel the miles.5 stars, minus one for the stock crappy parts.

Strengths:    
Very nice design and well though out


Weaknesses:    
not enough attention to detail, seat mesh started to wear out after 6 months


Bottom Line:   
Great entry level recumbent. I don't regret getting this bike at all, although I hope they come through with the warranty on the seat.
