Try one soon! Catrike’s eCAT electric assist trikes and kits
We’ve got a demo model of the new eCAT electric assist recumbent trikes from Catrike. These trikes use the Bosch Active Line Plus electric-assist system, and we can retrofit most older Catrike models with this electric assist. Featuring smooth, gentle acceleration, the Bosch system offers four levels of assistance: Eco, Tour, Sport, and Turbo, with up to 270% assistance. The Bosch 400 Wh battery pack has a maximum range of 62 miles, and the easy-to-read display lets you know when it’s time to recharge. In combination with a Catrike Dumont, 5.5.9, Expedition, Trail, Pocket or Villager, these systems offer excellent efficiency, comfort and riding enjoyment. Come take a test ride, choose a new trike or have an eCat upgrade installed on your Catrike.

Buyer's Guide to Car Racks

One of the most frequent questions we get here at Basically Bicycles is “How do I put that recumbent bike on my car?” Although most recumbent bikes will fit on traditional style racks, some racks are better suited for recumbent bikes than others. We carry many racks that are well-suited for recumbent bicycles and trikes. 

Check out the Basically Bicycles buyer's guide to car racks for an overview of rack types and tips on how you can take your recumbent bike or trike with you.
