archival and resource material for human powered recumbent tricycles


If you want to acquire your own trike, but don’t have a handy trike shop in your neck of the woods, do not worry. Help is as near as your computer and telephone! Many of us are not lucky enough to be able to drive to a local trike dealer, take test spins on various models, and choose a trike based on first-hand riding experience, so we must research it all online, call the trike shops, and talk to those who already have a trike.

NOTE: If you are planning on ordering a trike from one of these dealers, they will need to know your X-seam measurement before they ship it to you. Here is a short video on how you can determine your X-seam, which you can then tell the dealer so they can make all the necessary adjustments on your new trike:

Here are some places to start your search for that new trike. These well-known recumbent trike dealers have good reputations, helpful staff, and various ways to get a trike delivered right to your doorstep in short order. Most of these dealers have physical stores that you can visit in person to test ride their trikes.

They are listed alphabetically for your convenience.

Open: By appointment

AlphaBent Trike Shop 2Hugh and the staff at AlphaBENT / PBW know human-powered cycles from the inside out and have the experience that can only come from many years of hands-on mastery helping people across the globe achieve their goals of having FUN, HEALTH, and ADVENTURE riding. See you soon!

A Reverse Chronology of PBW / AlphaBENT

2013: Peregrine Bicycle Works moved the Dixon shop into downtown Sacramento where it has made a permanent home at 1114 C Street.

PBW began using the moniker AlphaBENT to reflect its leading position in the recumbent market. AlphaBENT / PBW is a Premium dealer for ICE and HP Velotechnik, and enjoys the enviable position of being one of the very few Catrike Concept Stores in the world.

2010: PBW made its first expansion starting a shop in Dixon, CA midway between San Francisco’s Bay Area and the Sacramento Capitol City. The business expanded quickly as the recumbent trike revolution continued.

2007: Within a few years of selling the first Greenspeed GTO touring trike, the recumbent trike business became the primary focus of Peregrine Bicycle Works.

2006: HP Velotechnik develops their first recumbent trike — the Scorpion. PBW immediately brings them into the fold and becomes a premium HP Velotechnik dealer.

2005: ICE shifted focus from the custom trike business to a broader spectrum market and signed up its initial dealer network. PBW was at the top of the list and immediately became one of the top ICE dealers in the world.

2003: Paulo Camasmie’s Catrike manufacturing business came online and PBW immediately brought Catrike products onto the floor and became a Catrike dealer.

2002: Hugh traded a couple of folding bike frames for a Greenspeed GTO frame and thereby became a Greenspeed recumbent trike dealer. That same year, PBW quickly became Greenspeed’s largest California dealer.

2000: at a trade show showing PBW folding bikes in England, Hugh met Greenspeed’s Ian Sims and saw and sat in his first Greenspeed recumbent trikes. It was love at first ride.

1997: Peregrine Bicycle Works (PBW) started when Hugh Kern started making custom-built folding bicycles. While learning metalworking, Hugh watched with great interest the progress of a young man named Paulo Camasmie who was developing a manufacturing system for a new brand of recumbent trikes. A year and a half and many metal-splinters and burn blisters after officially starting the business, the first PBW folding bike was shipped.

About Recumbents:

We are often asked why recumbents are better than the familiar upright bike. There is the obvious answer of a much more comfortable riding position, promoting more miles ridden. But we think the real secret of recumbents lies in where they will take you. Recumbents will take you through your neighborhood, with style and ease. They will carry you across town, or even across the country, in a safe, natural and efficient riding position. You will compete with superior aerodynamics and speed, or sit still and relax on a recumbent. Perhaps most importantly though, your first rides on a recumbent will transport you back to your childhood, when you first learned to ride a bicycle. Back to the feeling of accomplishment and liberation as… suddenly, your horizons have expanded beyond your imagination.

Trike Shop BelgiumHi Steve,

For several years, I am a fan of your website. I like the way you assemble all this info on trikes and their usage. Well, I am from Belgium, and a dedicated triker myself. I do run a trikes-only shop (Trike-Shop) in Belgium, and I thought it might be a good idea to let people know that if they would visit Europe or Belgium there is a place they can visit for all trike needs when on the road. You never know … There is already a link to your website on our website for a long time.

I am official dealer for the most popular trike brands like HPVelotechnik, ICE, AZUB, KMX and we do have the expertise for repairs. This all to let you know that if on the road in Europe you’re not alone.

Best regards, Yvo, proprietor Trike Shop
