Trident Trikes T.W.I.G. Recumbent
Even though Trident Trikes is primarily a Trike manufacturer, they have lamented the shrinking 2-wheel recumbent market. After some investigation though, they concluded it was because there was really no nice entry level bikes out there! There were nice bikes, and entry level bikes but none that seemed to be both.
In keeping with Trident Trike's philosphy- the T.W.I.G. is an entry level 26/20 2 wheeler. Do not let the price fool you though- it is packed full of upper end components! It comes with a Triple Truvativ Crankset, a Microshift Drivetrain with Twist Shifters and Avid Single Digit 5 V Brakes. Also standard is an adjustable height/angle hardshell seat with neckrest and Ventisit-type pad, alloy double walled V rims, and Tweener Bars with an adjustable stem. The T.W.I.G. also folds!! When riding a T.W.I.G. there are no suprises- it is a great low speed handling bike and not twitchy at all. This will satisfy not only entry level Recumbent riders, but also more experienced riders seeking better performance.
The T.W.I.G. Frame is made of Chro-Moly. The Boom and Seat frame are Aluminum. Folding the frame can be done without any tools. Folding the handlebars requires a 5mm Allen Wrench but can be accomplished in less than 15 seconds.
T.W.I.G. is available in Volunteer Orange , and Wasabi Green
Standard Boom length on all T.W.I.Gs affords you an X- Seam range of 36 1/4 43 3/8
Long Booms are available at no charge (exchange for your standard boom) which will give you an X Seam Range of 36 1/4 - 47 1/4
In addition your standard boom can be cut down to accommodate X Seams as low as 32 _
