X-Seam: The Recumbent Trike Fitting Measurement

When purchasing a trike, we use a sizing measurement called an X-Seam. This measurement helps us to determine which size will best fit you. Here is how we you determine your X-Seam size.

Wear shoes you would typically use for riding. Sit very tight against the bottom of the board, lean back, and stretch your legs out straight with the soles of your shoes perpendicular to the floor. Measure the distance in inches from the front of board to the bottom of your shoe. This is an important measurement so have an assistant help you get an accurate number. See illustration A as an example. And if you have trouble, call us at 916-619-1003 and we would be more than happy to help.


Most in-stock orders for the continental U.S. are processed with 3 days, and then shipped via a major carrier.

Once on their way, they should reach their destination within 5-10 business days depending on your location.

We deliver trikes throughout California. Call for ordering and pricing information.

Call for shipping price on trikes. Since trikes are shipped completely assembled in a large, oversized package, we choose to ship via FedEx Freight. This ensures your new trike arrives in perfect condition. Please be aware this does may take a few days longer than FedEx Ground but is well worth the wait. All trike shipments can be delivered Mondays through Fridays. Ask about lift gate service at residential addresses. Weekend delivery is not available. 

If the item or trike is not in stock, we are able to back order it for you. Please contact us for any special orders.

Accessories can be purchased straight from our online store if in stock. For trikes, please contact us to place your order.

Our business is operated from California, USA. California sales tax will be applied to all orders made from within the state of California or picked up in at our physical location. If we are shipping outside of California to a customer who orders from outside of California, we do not charge any sales tax.
