For a while it seemed like the recumbent scene was dying. Fewer and fewer recumbents were seen on the road. Lately it has picked up and more bents and newer bents are on the road. Now it is Trikes that are rage. I undersand they are flying our the door but you rarely see that many trikes out on the road. Where are they?

Are you thinking of trying a trike? Try John's Trikes and Bikes in Lancaster TX. They have at least 20 different trikes you can ride. They have at least 4-5 different brands (Greenspeed, Ice, Catrike, Sun and one more.) . I recently purchased a trike and the staff spent a half a day sizing trikes so I could ride every one. I did not ride all of them but I did buy a trike and I am having a BionX Electric assist installed.
