Avenue Recumbent Trikes
Avenue Trikes is a new
brand of tadpole trike that offers many features rarely found on trikes
at this price.
sub $1500 trikes have a plain steel frame and 8 or fewer speeds.
The Avenue Trikes first model, the “1st Ave” has a CroMoly steel frame.
Dual Derailleurs give it 24 speeds with a range to get you over most
1st Ave seat is 14” high so it is easy to get on and off. It
is adjustable to fit your leg length and the seat recline angle is
adjustable too. The seat cover is a breathable mesh with removable
padding, a nice perk at this price. The frame also adjusts so that the
Avenue trike can be adjusted for a wide range of riders from about 5’2”
to about 6’6”.
Direct steering keeps it nimble while the steering geometry keeps it
manageable, even at 20 to 30 miles an hour. This is one of the Avenue
Trikes features that sets it apart from the competition in my mind.
Other trikes in this price range either have stiff steering that makes
it an effort to keep on the road at 20+ MPH or the steering geometry
makes it feel squirrely at that speed.
Don’t get me wrong, the Avenue has a high seat and therefore does not
handle like a low-slung racing trike but for trikes in its category I
think it handles very well.
in and try one out when they arrive, should be here sometime in the fall
of 2016. If you can’t make the trip to try them we can ship one to you,
fully assembled and adjusted to fit you.
