New Greenspeed 2018 Lineup
Laid Back Cycles brings a 2018 lineup of Greenspeed trikes. These are tadpole trikes, which means two wheels at the front, while one at the back. We call them the Godfather of the modern day trikes. Ian Sims built his first recumbent trike in the year 1990 from metal scraps, which later took the shape of recumbent trike. The entire riders’ market took it with huge enthusiasm and it became a symbol of innovation, design, comfort and functionality.
Greenspeed Hand Cycle 2018
Greenspeed Hand cycle is really cool because it is one of the few hand cycles that steers in a tadpole style. It makes it easy to turn this trike in a small radius. Another advantage with this hand cycles comes in its handy folding and wheel popup design.
The seat, hand bars and leg guards are easily adjustable for a comfortable ride. Its seat comes off easily to enable a better folding option. It is easily portable with most of the trike carriers available in the market.

Rambler AT Best for Off Roading
Rambler AT rocks on the road as well as off the road. First of all, you only need to pump up some pressure in its tires. Finally, you can cruise your bike on any path, whether its on-road or off-road. Although, if you really want to enjoy the essence of Rambler AT, take it off road. You can easily create a passive suspension system by releasing some air out of its tires. You won’t need to add any extra shock absorber to that comfort, its just about maintaining the right pressure in tires.
