There is (maybe "was") a local person selling recumbents. His website has been inaccessible for some time now. You may find his contact information from togoparts.

I got my Catrike 700 from the US Hostel Shoppe. Another reputable merchant is Utah Trikes.

Nearer home is Velocity Racers in Hong Kong. Even nearer is KMX Karts' representative in Malaysia.

You may want to Google for the links to the mentioned merchants and reps. Last time I posted links under another account when I replied your post I got banned (which I did not consider as adverts but the system somehow did).

Google also for bent riders online. It's a large community of recumbent riders.

I am no expert recumbent rider but I may be reached via email if you need help.

Have fun!

Thread starter, please excuse this off-topic post but I received a private message from a moderator which I felt I ought to reply before racking up the requisite post number to send private messages. Apologies!

Moderator:

Thanks for taking the time and effort to write me. It's appreciated! :)

I apologise if my original post was seen as advertising for anyone or anything. I wasn't advertising, neither do I have any financial interest in those sites. They happened to be sites I had frequented before while sourcing for trikes and related parts which I had thought would be useful resources for the thread starter. Any related "interest" would be that I own one such trike myself (a Catrike 700). :wink:

As for my banned nick ("mauler"), it had nothing to do with any of the sites or brands of trikes, at least, none that I know of! It's something I've used for years. Not sure if the system appended something without my knowledge. I generally don't use a signature, either.

Coming back more in line with the thread starter's question, I'm in Hong Kong right now and I just bought myself another recumbent, an Optima Baron. It's a terribly sensitive ride and I foresee many accidents before I get the hang of it.

At any rate, I hope the above clarifies my position and motives.

If this reply is inappropriate, I respectfully ask that it be deleted but my account left intact, please!

Thanks!
