and can be for several days. Please don’t be offended if we don’t respond to you so quickly as we like to.
It’s nothing personal but no matter how loud you yell,
Telstra doesn’t seem to be able to pass the message.
We now have Starlink Internet so as soon as that is in place, we’ll be much closer, much quicker (Email).
Thanks, Eric and Susan

The World of Recumbent Trikes has Changed
It may not be a surprise that in amongst food and commodity shortages and price increases, recumbent trikes and alike have not been immune to the same shortages and price increases.
Instead of being able to order trikes as we did in the past, it is now more a raffle or auction process and as yet we haven’t been advised of where it will all take us.
We will have a more restricted stock and it will be further restricted by when we can update stock.
New stock in at the moment includes five trikes from ICE – a world leader in recumbent trike manufacture and product support, some of which have arrived and some that are in transit to Australia.
- ICE Adventure HD 26, Full Suspension, Rohloff 14 Speed IGH, Shimano Electric Assist (blue)
- ICE Adventure HD 26 (Fastrack) [due 10 days]
- ICE Adventure 26 (Fastrack) [due 10 days]
- ICE Adventure 26 (Fastrack) [due 10 days]
- ICE Sprint X 700 Hard Shell Seat
- ICE Adventure HD 26, Rear Suspension, Enviolo Automatiq hub, Shimano Electric Assist (green)
- ICE Sprint X Tour 26, Rear Suspension, Shimano Electric Assist
We do not yet know when or if we are able to order specific trikes. Some suppliers have a two year waiting time on orders.
We’ll keep you informed and add more information here shoortly!
Overseas Dollar Value
Trikes and a couple of bikes from all over the world, so how do I know what it will cost?
It’s confusing looking at overseas websites and wondering what all the prices mean ! ?
Our list has most of the trikes we can readily supply, translated into Australian Dollars with all the hidden costs such as Import and AQIS fees, dropped VAT fees and added GST (what you pay here) – Landed in Tewantin: “Trike List“. E&OE but should be close to your cost and is updated daily.
More info Please?
Let us know if there is something you would like information on and we’ll try and find the answers for you.
Why Do Recumbent Trikes Work So Well?
On a normal bike, vibrations and shocks travel along your spine. Sitting on the bicycle seat may result in the compression of nerves and blood vessels in the vulnerable area of the body called the perineum. This in turn can lead to temporary or permanent groin numbness, tingling sensations and a few other not so topical problems. These road shocks are effectively absorbed over an area of about 200 x 100mm (200cm2 or 8″ x 4″), if you’re lucky.
The main advantage of recumbent bike seating is the road shocks are absorbed across a greatly increased area of your torso. Riding in a recumbent seat* can be as comfortable as sitting in your favourite armchair. The recumbent trike or bike cushions your ‘seat’ and back, right up to your shoulders. OK, maybe a full arm chair is pretty good but a recumbent trike actually gets you out and about – in real life!
For us, a recumbent trike has meant a new world, literally!
A few things that determined why we are dealing with recumbent trikes:
- Being stopped on the road or footpath by someone asking: what is that, where did you get it, can I try it…
- the immense difference it has made at this house, and everyone in the family loves the effect and trikes
…is why we are and importantly why we want and how we are qualified to support others in finding their way into recumbent trikes. You too can have the opportunity to exercise, explore and enjoy your world through Queensland Recumbent -> Recumbent Company!
We’re Here to Help You!
We understand the difficulties in getting the right seat and wheels under you, especially when physical limitations are in play. We know this from both personal experience as well as from the experiences of clients.
Over the years, we have had many wonderful experiences here at Queensland Recumbent -> Recumbent Company as clients who have come with great difficulties getting around, have left with very big smiles on their faces. Many have thought that riding a recumbent trike was beyond them only to be thrilled by the discovery that they could ride!
They’ve come with walkers, walking sticks or a helping hand and encouragement from a loved one.
As Eric says …
“I’m a bit dependent on wheels. It’s more my back and neck that create the issues for me as I am lucky I can pedal quite OK. I need a system that allows for road bounce, vibrations and maximum torso support or I can’t get very far down the road. ie: must have at least rear suspension…
My physical situation gives a great understanding of people feeling frustrated about finding or trying a solution (trike) that may work for them. Not being able to talk to someone about this strange new recumbent world goes away here. Not many businesses want to spend time talking, but we will!”
It’s Your Turn to Think Big
Make an appointment to come and visit us or call and see what we can arrange for you. We’d love to help.
A great way to start is to get your seat into one of our recumbent seats for a test ride and experience what a pleasure recumbent trikes are to ride.
Who is a Recumbent Trike For?
Everyone! Recumbent trikes are a great comfortable and safe method of moving around.
When you need to stop, you can sit right where you are with no balance or seat surface area issues.
A recumbent trike uses essentially the same components as a bike. Though if someone tells you recumbents and bikes are the same thing, they probably haven’t ridden a recumbent trike. Come try one.
Give us a call today! We’d love to hear from you.
