I have been riding a Cruzbike Softrider for three years now. I am 52 and about 225 lbs.
It did take me about 200 miles of riding before it became more a natural feel. Those early miles required patience to be sure as I was basically trying to relearn how to ride. But now that I have a few thousand miles logged on it I can say with confidence I plan to ride it for years to come.
No more butt pain, wrist pain, neck pain and lower back pain. Good riddance!

Downside:
1. Tight turns at low speed near impossible.
2. Riding up steep hills is more difficult. Same with all recumbents. Cant stand up on pedals so its all push power in a seated position all the time. (comfortable seated position)

Upside:
1. Riding comfort miles better than a standard upright bike.
2. My speed is every bit as good if not better on flats compared to my upright bike
