    I have an Actionbent recumbent Bike for sale. They are very good, well constructed machines. Oznetcat@2hotmail.com

    Hi,
    ActionBent trikes are actually made by Performer and they’re still in business….check their Website. There are North American dealers and Cycle Horizon, in Montreal, is the closest Canadian dealer to an ONtario address. I own 2 ActionBent trikes and a TW Bents trike and Performer parts fit all of my rides.
    Regards,
    Nipper

    Dealers in Ontario, Canada ?

    • Steve says:

      It is my understanding that ActionBent is no longer doing business, and if this is the case, locating a dealer may well be a moot point at this point. Finding a previously owned one seems the singular option.

  4. westonfront says:

    Are Actionbent still in business? Their website seems no longer to be live. Looks like a good value for money option for me to consider.

    • Steve says:

      From what I know, ActionBent is no longer in business. This is the word that has been floating around for quite some time now. I have never heard any official announcement, nor have I had any comment from Randy or Steve.

  5. yYes Steve, I left a coment about how I’m proud owner of the T1X I was wondering if this trike could be equiped with a rear disc brake setup?

    • Steve says:

      Hi Mike,

      I believe your trike can be fitted with a rear disk, but I am not certain. Give the boys up in Washington a call for the genuine scoop! They are real nice and you get to talk with one of them personally. Either that, or shoot them an email from their website, which is listed on Trike Asylum. A friend of mine in southern California has a trike like yours and he really likes it for cruising around town. I’ll be seeing him this fall when I ride my trike down there.

      Steve
