The starting cost is $1995.  It is offered in 3 colors … sky blue, mango and storm grey. Check it out HERE.

Catrike departed from the black wheels used on all other models and is using anodized silver rims on all three wheels as well as the matching one-piece handlebars, and Catrike’s new rear seat cargo bag. A rear fender also comes on the Eola.

Of course, the shifting cables, front derailleur and shifters would have to be changed/added, but it looks like one could have a nice setup out of this model if they were not satisfied with the 11 speeds.

ENJOY THE RIDE!
