Strengths:    Convertible wheelbase, componentry, ride and looks.

Weaknesses:    Seat slides back when riding no matter how tight I make it.

Bottom Line:   
After surveying recumbents for a year, I decided on the Canto based on its ride and convertible style. I have ridden it approximately 300 miles since purchasing it and can't stop smiling when I ride it. 50 miles does not seem long on this bike and I look forward to longer rides soon. Great!

Strengths:    Good price and high quality.

Weaknesses:    The seat tends to move a little from side to side but,
it isn't noticable when riding. The Zac rims aren't
the greatest.

Bottom Line:   
I now own a Burley Canto. I stand by everything I said in the first post.
The design is very well thought out and all the accessories so far fit

Strengths:    Beautiful design and nice craftmanship. The bike was smooth and responsive. A great bent for the price. Fits xseam down to 36 inches if you are a shorter rider like myself. The componants are good and shifted well.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I just test rode this bike and I was very impressed. First of all, it's a great looking bent. It has a clean and attractive design and rides nice and smooth which is what you would expect with a long wheel base. The craftmanship is excellent. The seat was very comfortable and comes off easily for transport. I'm looking for a second bent and the Canto is it. I'll be ordering one very soon. I currently ride a Rans V-Rex and the Canto will be the fourth bent I have owned. I've been told I need to find a twelve step program! Bents are addictive.

Need someone with a Crockett and tape measure (canto version)

Can someone with a Crockett measure axle to fork crown length for me? Can't find it online, and would like to make some comparisons fit wise to bikes that I currently own. Team is changing sponsors next year and may be able to pick one up for a good deal.Read More »
