Azub T-Tris

When I first saw the Azub T-Tris I thought it looked like a HP Velotechnik clone. Certainly not a bad thing to resemble but nothing eye catching. It just didn’t stand out to me so I kind of ignored it. In the fall of 2013, Honza Galla of Azub stopped by the shop and got Read More…

Catrike Eola

In 2019 Catrike introduced their most economical recumbent trike, the Eola. Much like their earlier Trail design it is a tadpole trike with a simplified version of Catrike’s space frame and 20-inch wheels all around. This helps them keep the price and weight down. The frame is very light and rigid but lacks the lumbar Read More…

Catrike Villager Recumbent Trike

“Villager” is a good name for this affordable, versatile Catrike. Urban/suburban riders will find its higher seat, upright seat back and tall ground clearance handy in traffic. The Villager’s 12.5” seat height makes it one of the highest tadpole trikes on the market, right up there with the Ice “Adventure” and ideal for riders looking for a casual fitness or adaptive trike.

HP Velotechnik Gekko and Gekko FX

The HP Velotechnik Gekko fx is the Honda Civic of tadpole trikes.  There are undoubtedly better and much more expensive machines but this is good enough for most of us. The Gekko line falls in the medium seat height class of 13″ high.  That, combined with the “V” shaped cross members and extra long seat Read More…

Catrike Trail Recumbent Trike

The Trail is a Catrike built for riders on a budget. It brings Catrike back to the price point they started at in 2000, considerably lower once you factor in inflation. Like all Catrikes the Trail is still made in the US. Read More…

Terratrike Rambler

One of the hardest things to do when writing a recumbent trike review is limit what you are comparing the trike to.  It wouldn’t be fair to complain that an under $1800 trike doesn’t work as well as a trike costing $3000.  Which brings me to the Terratrike Rambler. The Rambler is a great trike Read More…

Ice Sprint Recumbent Trike

The Ice Sprint was the answer for riders who wanted to go a little faster but not be as reclined as the Vortex. The Sprint is available with 20 or 26 inch rear wheels and can be rigid, suspension on the rear wheel or suspension on all three wheels. Read More…

Greenspeed Magnum

The Greenspeed Magnum is a trike for the big boys and girls out there.  It came about due to a visit to the Bicycleman and some other shops by Ian Simms, owner of Greespeed.  He told us that his sales were down even though when he asked shop people which trike handled the best his Read More…

Hase Kettwiesel Recumbent Trike

Hase introduced a new KettWiesel in the spring of 2007. The new KettWiesel AL has a lighter aluminum frame and lighter is always nice. The KettWiesel’s road holding, maneuverability, and stability remain unchanged. Read More…
