I bet Strava loses track of that thing at 88mph.

It’s not as much recumbent as it is a very relaxed “seat tube angle” with the addition of a backrest…

The rider must need the extra grip given by those awesome Odyssey triple traps to risk guaranteed extremely bloody shins. Towing 19 cats has to be tough work.

@Julien M – Isn’t that kinda the definition of a recumbent?

Low BB, slack HT, alternative wheel size… that thing is right with the times! It HAS to be awesome!

Legitimately pretty awesome. Have to admire this kind of thing.

What, no closeup of the hideous mutant creature that’s trapped in the cage on the back?

I hope that these mods didn’t void the warranty.

First full suspension trike I’ve ever seen.

I don’t think the bike needs front suspension with how long the pole is coming out of the top. Sorry but in this case I was unsure of what to call it but the amount of flex it would have,,, KICKASS!!!

I also like that it has loads of road grim on it , Well used and well loved!!

I’d buy one. You know, if it came in 650b.

The public demands a comprehensive build sheet. This will not stand as just a minor “Pic of the Day”, an article must be published.

Can it really be considered a trike when it has 7* wheels? Or are the 4 at the back not in contact with the ground?

If Sloth form The Goonies had a bike this would be it.

Are those highway pegs or frame sliders on the downtube?

The 4 wheels in the back are just a part of the wheelie bar/rear cage rack combo so they don’t really count. Still a trike.

May the Recbegossemon live forever.
