I bet Strava loses track of that thing at 88mph.

Julien M. - 05/28/13 - 7:39am

It’s not as much recumbent as it is a very relaxed “seat tube angle” with the addition of a backrest…

Trip Trap - 05/28/13 - 8:27am

The rider must need the extra grip given by those awesome Odyssey triple traps to risk guaranteed extremely bloody shins. Towing 19 cats has to be tough work.

@Julien M – Isn’t that kinda the definition of a recumbent?

Chris. S. - 05/28/13 - 8:32am

Could I pre-order a DH / AM Trek Madone edition please!! The check is signed and waiting!!!

gringo - 05/28/13 - 8:56am

best Bike Rumor post of the year thus far.

the bar has been set!

Watchtower - 05/28/13 - 9:10am

Now we’re talking!

Patrick - 05/28/13 - 9:23am

Low BB, slack HT, alternative wheel size… that thing is right with the times! It HAS to be awesome!

onepieceatatime - 05/28/13 - 10:29am

best franken-trike ever.

Androo - 05/28/13 - 10:57am

Legitimately pretty awesome. Have to admire this kind of thing.

SmooveP - 05/28/13 - 11:20am

What, no closeup of the hideous mutant creature that’s trapped in the cage on the back?

Chris - 05/28/13 - 11:42am

I hope that these mods didn’t void the warranty.

Gillis - 05/28/13 - 12:05pm

First full suspension trike I’ve ever seen.

deboat - 05/28/13 - 12:07pm

I don’t think the bike needs front suspension with how long the pole is coming out of the top. Sorry but in this case I was unsure of what to call it but the amount of flex it would have,,, KICKASS!!!

I also like that it has loads of road grim on it , Well used and well loved!!

Alan - 05/28/13 - 12:22pm

I’d buy one. You know, if it came in 650b.

KO3AK - 05/28/13 - 12:38pm

The public demands a comprehensive build sheet. This will not stand as just a minor “Pic of the Day”, an article must be published.

Dad - 05/28/13 - 4:12pm

Can it really be considered a trike when it has 7* wheels? Or are the 4 at the back not in contact with the ground?

NASH - 05/28/13 - 4:30pm

If Sloth form The Goonies had a bike this would be it.

Trey R - 05/28/13 - 4:39pm

Please tell me that’s an e-brake for doing mad drifts!

Alex - 05/28/13 - 4:44pm

Are those highway pegs or frame sliders on the downtube?

satisFACTORYrider - 05/28/13 - 5:02pm

the cage can double as a grill. coal or wood burning. all steeze.

David - 05/28/13 - 8:22pm


carl - 05/28/13 - 11:03pm

Coming soon to a WALMART near you!

RuSH - 05/29/13 - 10:22pm

The 4 wheels in the back are just a part of the wheelie bar/rear cage rack combo so they don’t really count. Still a trike.

May the Recbegossemon live forever.
