CT Recumbent Bicycles
BikeE went out of business in 2002.
The Bicycle Man does not have any BikeE recumbents left.

In '98 the CT was our best selling recumbent, and at $699 the 2002 CT
remains an excellent general purpose recumbent value. It's not a great
racing bike, but if you are looking for a fun, comfy, reliable, value
packed bike for errands, exercise or day-tripping you should check out a
CT! I've EVEN seen guys finish ONE HUNDRED MILE century rides on a CT. The
lighter weight and stiffer frame of the CT make it about the fastest BikeE
available. It's even lighter than some recumbents that cost two to four
times as much! It comes with BikeE's comfortable "Sweet seat II". Like the
Sweet Seat it features foam padding on the base and an ergonomically
designed hi-back but has fewer available adjustments. The CT is a
versatile bike. It's Sachs 3x7 hub gives easy-shifting and wide range
gearing of 23 to 108". The CT's V-Brakes are plenty powerful, the gear
range is good. An amazing number of recumbent riders took their first ride
on a CT. If marijuana is "the gateway drug" then the BikeE CT is certainly
"the gateway recumbent."
I used a CT long wheelbase as my all-weather errand bike for a year (for a
change I'm now using a Linear with Under Seat Steering.) For utility
riding and errands I keep it outfitted with fenders, lights, and a front
faring. This setup keeps me warm and dry in weather that gets a lot of
attention at the grocery store. This is my 24-7-52 answer to "why should I
take the car, it's only a mile or two, I can ride!"
