Recumbent What IS that thing?! Recumbents may be odd looking, but they have many advantages over a "wedgie" bicycle. Discuss the in's and out's recumbent lifestyle in the recumbent forum.

JGaerlan of Gaerlan's Custom Cycles? I used to buy parts from your store back in the day. Was really sorry to see it go.

Still have the set of Vuelta Airliner 1 rims I bought from you on my Status (they were the only 'aero' 26/20 rims around back then).

Well we found a used Terra Trike Rambler (20 in. wheels) for a decent price and we will be getting the triple crank (when it get's in) changed to a 22/32/44 for my wife, Jo. With it's 24 speeds and the new crankset she will be able to climb hills a bit easier than her TT Rover X8, (even with it's 12x42 cassette with a 36 T. single chain wheel). The next good thing is that she gave the TT Rover X8 to ME so I will be selling my 2007 SUN EZ-1 SX recumbent bicycle and now we will both have TRIKES! LOL, we are now TEAM R&R!

That is a fair price for a Phantom. I have a 2000 which I bought used about 5 years ago for $200. I love it and put around 10K to 15K miles on it. I also just bought another much newer one which I want to convert into an e-assist bike.

Here's the final addition to the recumbent garage before the wife kicks me out. Got it from a pawn shop for $400. Upgraded it with an entry level Sram 1x12 drivetrain I purchased from Aliexpress a year ago.

Glad to hear I'm still remembered during the days when we had an internet parts store catering to recumbent riders.

You bet you are! ADC of Recycled Recumbents fame recommended your services to me when building my first recumbent, a Mach 2. Purchased a 20Ē front wheel with a Vuelta hub from your site and itís still in tip top shape, even though the Mach itself wore out a long while ago. So sorry you are no longer in that business but seems youíre doing well nonetheless, which is the important thing.



My current ride, a dual drive e-Stratus LE:

I think I may have even ordered a thing or two from you back then. It's good to see your name again.

Couple pics from Paris Brest Paris 2019. This C2V was parked along the route, and the owner kindly snapped this photo for me. 2nd pic is in a small woods where I had a 20 minute nap; all I can say is somewhere en route.

Edit: Actually I can say a little more. I started with a front fender, but somewhere along the way it self destructed. Both pics were clearly after that incident.

My Trident Spike 2 with retrofitted e-assist. Truly my car (car free 3 years). Image taken at the dog park (where I stopped for a lemonade) before going the one block further to Costco and loading up my Burley Travoy.

In August, I sold my TT Rover and picked up a 2006-2010 Terra Trike Tour (1). I wanted to go back to a 3x drivetrain and prefer "indirect steering" and the price was right. The trikes name is Abbey-Normal as it has a "yellow" boom (older TT's did not have an adjustable boom, just sm/md/lg booms). The red boom was only a Med. and I needed a Large boom and Angletech just happen to have a "Yellow Large" so it was a FREE swap, which fit's my meager budget!

We found a used, 2009 ICE "Trice T" with a EBO 350W e-assist rear hub motor system at Angletech, got a loan at our Credit Union and picked it up for her! She now rides and ICE and we have her Terra Trike Rambler listed in the Recumbent Classifieds on this form. As we get very close to 70, decided it was time to start working our way into a e-assisted trike. So after we get her's paid off I will get a loan to have e-assist added to my Terra Trike (Legacy Model) TOUR! LOL, it will still be a couple of year before I get my system so now, SHE will have to wait for ME at the top of the long uphill inclines!
