Easy Racers Easy Racers have designed the Sun EZ-1, EZ-Sport and other recumbents that have been popular with our customers.
Rans has been a recumbent manufacturer for over a quarter century and boasts some classic designs.
Bacchetta produces some really sporty, sleek 'bents. They even have big-wheel models. Delicious.
Barcroft Cycles are the masterpieces of local recumbentista Bill Cook, a Falls Church resident who designed these bikes to be low, fast, and fun. The company is now owned by Bent Up Cycles.
HP Velotechnik recumbents are made in Germany and they are fast, comfortable and reliable. Models range from the compact long wheelbase commuter the Spirit to the short, low and fast Speedmachine, all with front and rear suspension.
Volae recumbent frames are hand made, with Reynolds 4130 Chromoly tubing, in limited quantities at Waterford Precision Cycles in Waterford, Wisconsin. All bikes available with the Volae ES frame option: “The cleverly engineered frame separates in the middle to facilitate packing in a standard bike travel case while preserving the high performance that you demand.”
Longbikes recumbents are very high quality bikes designed and built in Colorado. The Eliminator is a short wheelbase bike. The Slipstream, a long wheelbase bike, was originally designed by Dick Ryan as the Vanguard. Both bikes come with underseat steering with an option for above seat steering. Longbikes produce two tandem models, the Jetstream and the Gulfstream
Rans crank forward bikes, otherwise known as flat-foot technology bikes, allow riders to easily touch the ground when seated on the very comfortable bike seat. The pedals are located slightly forward compared to a normal upright bike. They are a cross between a recumbent and an upright. Several models are available.
Kidz Tandems are made by Brown Cycles of Grand Junction, Colorado. The adult controls - steering, breaking, gearing - are in the back, allowing the child to pedal and enjoy viewing everything that's coming up. This also allows you to see what they are up to and talk a lot more freely.
Greenspeed Tandem Trike, with features a stretched, triangulated frame with excellent pedaling stiffness while still having a comfortable ride.
Easy Racers designed the EZ Tandem. This casually recumbent bike has disc brakes and those distinctive "hog" handlebars.
Hase Pino tandem places the rider in the rear in an upright position and the front rider in a recumbent position. The rider in the rear controls steering, shifting, and braking.
Our most popular family tandem is the KidzTandem by Brown Cycles. The child is seated in the forward position and the adult controls the bike from the rear. Conversations are much easier making for a more fun ride. The adult can easily watch the child seated in front.
The Rans Screamer Sport is the tandem produced by the esteemed Kansas manufacturer. The Sport can be ordered with couplings (Screamer TR) so that it breaks down for travel.
WizWheelz introduced the TerraTandem tricycle to much acclaim. How can you go wrong with the tandem favored by Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller fame?
We have used tandems as well. As is the nature of these things, selection varies, so call to check our list of used bikes or call us at 703-938-8900.
