    The problem with one-sided forks is that they have to be done well or the steering could be wonky. Some early Actionbent models with mono-forks supposedly had steering problems, and I'm not sure if...

    I found Allegro on Facebook, they're the manufacturer. The bike is definitely a clone.

    It looks very similar to a Performer Agenda, but I think it's a clone. The Agenda has gussets around the headtube which I don't see on the Taobao bike. Also, the droupouts and steering arrangement...

    Another option is a seat from Recycled Recumbents, if you can adapt it to the trike frame. You could probably even have a custom seat made by Mr. Carson if necessary, or make one yourself.

    Hey, I just ordered a new kickstand for my RANS Rocket! The clunky one I have now on the bike is all steel and probably weighs a pound and half.

    As stated above, the front derailleur will work with just about any trigger. If you want to get a matching set, SRAM Rocket and Attack trigger shifters work with Shimano rear derailleurs.
