The TriCruiser Winter Ready Tadpole Trike


You can ride the TriCruiser in the winter.

The TriCruiser winter ready tadpole trike is an easy-to-build recumbent trike that includes rear suspension and under seat steering. The moderate seat height and mountain bike wheels make this long wheelbase tadpole trike a great all-winter vehicle.

Build the TriCruiser with standard bike parts.

This DIY recumbent tadpole trike uses only standard bicycle components, so the front steering system is easy to build using inexpensive parts. The TriCruiser is basically a two-headed mountain bike, so it cannot fall over on slipper ground, making it good winter riding trike to help you keep in shape all year.

Underseat steering recumbent trike.

The front steering system uses standard bicycle head tubes and forks and is linked in such a way as to steer like a regular bicycle with minimal resistance and predictable control. The handlebars are placed under the seat for a relaxed grip and easy access to the levers and shifters.
