What is a recumbent trike?


If there are two wheels in the front and one in the back, it’s a Tadpole. We like those best and those are what we stock. We can of course order others.


The recumbent aspect is the rider sits slightly reclined in a t-shaped frame with a low center of gravity, supporting the body in a mesh seat, fully distributing body weight evenly between the 3 wheels, the pedals are in the front and the drive wheel is in the back. Braking and steering is done in the front wheels via handle bars.


There are nearly 12 dozen manufactures of recumbent trikes and we stock both Terratrike and Catrike. We are a dealer for others as well.


There are a variety of options like regular bicycles from various wheel sizes, frame sizes, seating positions, rider weight, rider capability, gear options, folding, suspension, and budget.


Recumbent trikes are stable giving riders with balance issues, recovering muscles impacted by injury or disease, medical conditions like stoke or nerve damage the ability to ride again.


Trikes range in price from around $2200 to over $10000 for custom modifications.

What Adaptations or modifications can be made to the trike?

Electric assist can be added in either hub or mid mount versions 


Entry bars can be installed for the rider to easily enter or exit the trike


Braking and gearing can be adapted and moved to the dominant side of the rider 


Accessories like flags, neck rests, fenders, pannier bags, rear racks, water bottle systems, etc can be added to customize the experience


Pedaling system can be adjusted to different tooth ranges, shorter crank lengths, different gearing ranges, and more


We work with the rider to give the best experience, advice, and knowledge to gain the ability to ride like never before.


How to I view a recumbent trike? Test ride? etc

We suggest making an appointment especially May Long through September Long Weekend. We are here 7 days a week through the summer months and are flexible for appointments happening outside our regular store hours. We know buying a trike is a new experience for the rider and we like to give our undivided attention. We are a busy little shop and we are located in a hot spot for tourist activities and emergency bike repairs.

During your appointment we will assess your riding and health needs, find our more about when, where and how you want to ride, discuss any medical conditions or concerns, talk about adaptive modifications, measure your height and X-seam, get to know you on a personal level, and then take some models out for test rides we feel would be best suited based on budget and ability.

We stock 10+ models and have lots of accessories to add on and you can buy on the spot or think about it.

Trike appointments usually require more than 1 store visit and are an investment for the rider especially for those riders with balance issues, physical limitations, or other concerns. We expect you to have questions after the appointment and we do our very best to answer them.

We want you to feel guided in the process but not pressured. We want you to choose the best model for you.

What brands do you carry? Both Catrike and terratrike.

Catrike Dumont - 16 years of engineering and experience have come together to create the Dumont. The rear suspension features a highly progressive travel path combined with a custom spring rate and sophisticated damping for a perfect balance of performance and comfort. The shock is actuated via a CNC machined swingarm pivoting on precision cartridge bearings to allow the suspension system to operate with seamless efficiency. Up front, the Dumont employs Catrike’s anti-dive patent-pending front suspension spindle to take the edge off while allowing all wheels to move independently. The result is that the Dumont stays firmly planted on the ground with the active suspension. The long and low rider position and fully adjustable boom provide stable weight distribution needed for maximum performance while the ergonomic backrest is fully adjustable for the perfect fit A 26-inch rear wheel and folding feature, round out the Dumont to provide the ultimate ride.

How about a price?

We buy Trikes in US dollars. Therefore we need to account for Canadian Conversion rates + any import duties of 13% + freight + any additional adaptations!


We do our very best to pass on any possible savings if the Canadian dollar cooperates.


We do not price online since there are too many variables to account for and we rarely sell just a base model trike.


We offer Financing Plans, Layaway, we take Mastercard and Visa to make the recumbent buying experience an easy one.
