Curious About Recumbents? Try a Used One.

We hear from a lot of people that they are curious about recumbents but are hesitant to buy one. It can be a lot of money to invest in an experiment to improve your comfort. Fortunately, we have a way to minimize the risk and make trying one more affordable.

Currently, recumbent shops are selling roughly 80% trikes, 20% two wheelers.  This is largely due to the ageing of our audience. The typical first recumbent buyer is in their 40’s or 50’s and looking for a more comfortable two-wheeler. As they reach their 60’s,70’s and 80’s, health issues and balance problems lead them toward recumbent trikes.

Here at The Bicycleman, we have always taken in good quality used recumbents towards a new bike or trike. We go over them, replace worn parts, and give them a thorough tune-up. It’s easy to find a recumbent to try for under $1000. We prefer people visit and try with our guidance for the best outcomes. If it’s too far to come in person, we ship nation-wide and internationally.

Here’s a link to used recumbent bikes and trikes on our website- When we finish tuning a trade-in, we put all the used recumbents and current specials up on the site within a day and take them off as they sell. There is an e-mail link on each used recumbent that is sent to me. I will respond within 24 hours any business day to any questions you ask me. I like to have a conversation to make sure it fits and is a good choice for your needs. Be sure to include a phone number if that sounds like something helpful for you.
