BikeE Recumbents

BikeE recumbents went out of business in 2002 partly due to warranty recalls and partly because they were starting a new recumbent company, BIGHA. BikeE was one of the largest recumbent brands in the world when they closed. There are a lot of BikeE’s out there so we stock many parts to keep them on the road. We have seat parts as well as the more universal tires, tubes, chains etc. Read More…


Burley Recumbents

Burley Design Cooperative went out of production in 2006. Burley was started as a worker owned cooperative. This worked well when they were small but as they grew it became hard for them to retain management and engineers. There are many used Burley recumbents out there. They come up for sale occasionally. We stock parts for Burley recumbents so should have a lot of life left in them. Read More…


Challenge Recumbents

Challenge recumbents are no longer made. Bicycle Man LLC was a Challenge dealer from 2000 to 2007. Challenge’s bikes were not known for their ruggedness but were known for their flat land speed. Read More…


Cycle Genius Recumbents

Cycle Genius ceased production in 2012. If their comfortable, relaxing LWB OSS bikes interested you then you should check out the RANS Stratus recumbent bike. Read More…


Haluzak Recumbents

Bicycles By Haluzak went out of production in 2007 partly due to difficulty buying components. There are a few used Haluzak recumbents out there, they come up for sale occasionally. Remember, a Haluzak bike with a 16″ front wheel is a “Leprechaun” and is for shorter riders. The Haluzak Leprechaun is less stable than their standard size Horizon and Hybrid-Race. Read More…


Oracle Recumbents

Oracle is a Canadian company whose designs, in my opinion, show a lot of European influence. European recumbent manufacturers from the Czech Republic (Azub); Germany (HP Velotechnik) and Holland (Optima) also have these features found on the Oracle Tour and City recumbents: Under Seat Steering (USS), reclined, rigid seats; adjustable pedal booms and full suspension.

Reynolds Weld Labs Recumbents

George Reynolds builds recumbent bikes that are fast but not comfy for a recumbent. I rode one of Georges Wishbone recumbents in the 2001 HPRA North American Championships. I won in Super-Stock class. His new Z-Bone models are front wheel drive and have rear suspension. Read More…


Sidewinder Recumbents

The Sidewinder Sport Z tadpole is one of the least expensive tadpole recumbent tricycles on the market at $1595. Its seat is higher than most tadpole trikes making it easier to get on and off the trike. Read More…


Trek Recumbent Bikes

In 1999 Trek Bicycles introduced their rear suspension SWB OSS R-200. With as fat a tube as I’ve ever seen on a single recumbent they were unique to say the least. They are comfortable bikes due to the rear suspension and the legendary RANS seat. Read More…


Vision Recumbents

Vision Recumbents is out of business because their expansion including the purchase of Winkle Wheel resulted in debt which they could not support when the economy had a downturn. Vision’s assets were sold piece-by-piece at auction in March of 2004. Finding replacement parts for a Vision like a seat frame, USS handlebar or front fork with their USS attachment is very difficult. Consider this before you buy a used Vision. OSS conversions are available. Read More…


Volae Recumbents

Volae Recumbents are no longer sold by dealers, we have left our reviews up for informational purpose.

Volae Recumbents: While sporty US made hiracers are Volae’s forte their 20×26 century and expedition recumbent bike models add some diversity to their line. Read More…
