Recumbent TRIKES have been emerging on the scene for the past 15 years in particular. Great TRIKE manufacturers are now manufacturing fantastic trikes. Catrike of Orlando, Florida, TRIOT trikes of Kaysville, Utah, Terra Trike in Grand Rapids, Michigan, HP Velotechnik of Germany, ICE trikes of England, Trident Trikes of Lincolnton, North Carolina, and Azub of the Czech Republic to name many of the top ones. This fine gentleman has found a wonderful niche in manufacturing trikes for riders with special needs. Tragically, 22 veterans commit suicide each year and I can't help but think many of those tragic suicides would not have happened if physically challenged war veterans had been introduced to custom TRIKES fabricated for their own individual needs.
