Folding recumbent tricycle
As exciting as Greenspeed recumbent trikes are, there have always been some hold-outs who wanted them to be a little less expensive and a little less bulky to transport.... Enter the GT3 - an entry-level trike that is destined to stand the test of time.
The GT3 uses no planetary gear systems to compensate for the small rear wheel. Instead, the simple new Shimano Capreo gear-set is coupled with a standard Shimano Tiagra 52/42/30 touring triple crankset.
This gives the GT3 27 gears with a range from 19 to 95 inches - similar to a mountain bike gear range and adequate for most recreational uses. A wider, lower or higher gear-ranges can be accomplished with the Rohloff Speedhub or Schlumpf Speed-Drive.
The wheels are 16" all around, giving the trike a quick, sporty feel and a narrow track.
Reliable drum brakes allow easy wheel removal and maintenance-free operation.
The GT3 includes as standard equipment:
- side-view mirror
- rear fender (mudguard)
- safety flag
- dynamo, head light, and tail light mounts
Other options available for the GT3 are head rests, front fenders (mudguards), 2nd side-view mirror, and the dynamo lighting sets.
