AVENUE TRIKES … ONE MORE OFFERING


Avenue tadpole trike 2

Yet one more tadpole trike is coming on the scene. Avenue Trikes if offering a fairly low cost trike similar to the TT Rover and Rambler, Catrike Villager and ICE Adventure as far as seat height.

This first model, the 1st Ave has a rugged chro-molly frame, 24 speeds and is made in Taiwan. The introductory price is $1495. Other Taiwanese models are planned, as is a more upscale US made line.

Here is what their website says:

At Avenue Trikes we design rugged trikes then price them for casual riders. We include the features you will want when you become a more serious rider. Start with a rugged CroMoly frame, add a breathable, padded mesh seat, give it 24 speeds and dual disk brakes to get up and down hills and top it off with dual parking brakes and you have an unbeatable package for under $1500.

14” High seat and easy reach handlebars so you can easily get on and off
24 speed derailleurs and convenient twist shifters

I have not read anything more about this company and the availability of these trikes. They make mention of a recent earthquake in Taiwan which has effected production and availability of tadpole trikes from that country. Their website says available in Spring 2016. In two weeks it will officially be summer so if they are going to start selling them in Spring they don’t have much time left. It will be interesting to see what other models they come out with and how they catch on.

UPDATE: The trike is supposed to be available in February 2017. They will be a deep blue color. If you would like updates as their arrival gets closer and the day more definite you can email them at sales@avenuetrikes.com

    Cool…! I would love to see a recumbent Nation…As newer trikes hits the road, and it’s one more in the plus column for the recumbent society, and then people will start to understand that recumbents are not just a fad, or isolated group of revolutionary or left wing group of riders who just want to be noticed, we are riding for our health, ecology, and just normal life it self and nothing more….. Save the Planet…! LoL…!
