Trek Recumbent Bikes

The Short Lived Trek R-200

Trek R 200 Recumbent Bike (no longer available)

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. Not fast or real easy for a beginner to get used to they didn’t sell well for TREK. We stocked a few of them but most customers preferred the similarly priced (and faster) RANS V-Rex or Lightning Phantom.

The R-200 was discontinued by TREK and a dealer sold them off over the Internet at below wholesale, angering any TREK dealers who still had them in stock. TREK Inc subsequently sold off the parts they had which were intended for warranty claims. If you have a TREK R-200 don’t expect TREK to have R-200 parts or accessories left to help you. Don’t get mad at your TREK dealer, it’s not their fault they can’t help you.

We have a few TREK R-200 parts in stock for sale if you need them: Seat upholstery, seat pads, seat pad covers, seat back mesh and mid drive cassettes, chains, and of course tires and tubes. Email if you need any of these.

If you like the looks of the TREK recumbent check out either the RANS Rocket with dual 20” wheels or the RANS V-Rex with 20”and 26” wheels. Both have the great RANS seat, the best part of the Trek R-200. If you like the idea of a SWB with suspension we can add a front shock to either of these SWB RANS bikes.
