Action Bent Recumbent Trike

Postby Aushiker » Fri Dec 07, 2012 2:04 pm

Really just a heads-up. An Action Bent trike has popped up on Gumtree. Seller is asking $1,000.

Seller mentions 24" rear wheel. Does that sound right or should it be a 26" rear wheel?

Since you can get 26" tyres with an ETRTO (sorry, ISO) of 559mm and 24" with 540mm ISO it would be hard to pick from a photo. And since this is a trike sourced from an American dealer and a few years out of date it could be any size in 26" or 24". There are some trikes kicking around with 24" rears, they just don't sell well in AU. See http://sheldonbrown.com/tire-sizing.html.
The front looks like 20" but in the 451mm ISO, not the common 406mm, so you might be limited in tyre choices locally.

Contact the guy and go take a look would be my suggestion as it appears to be in Rossmoyne.
Always good to sight the merchandise from Gumtree sellers anyway.

The boom looks pretty thin so could be power robbing to some degree.

I emailed the seller asking about the spec and condition. This is the response:

to answer your questions, front shifter is shimano tiagra, rear shifter is shimano deore, gear shifter is sramattack, rear wheel is 26" and front wheels are 20" , the trike is in good condition. hope that helps cheers Dave.


Seems that the rear is 26" not 24" as per the advert. It really does not excite me so will not take it further.
