At New York City Recumbent Supply…
We focus on high-quality recumbent bikes and recumbent trikes. We handle models that meet our standards of excellence and prove themselves to be the best in their categories. This is based on quality of design and production, manufacturer professionalism, and how the equipment has performed for us and other high-mileage users while using and abusing the bikes and trikes under “real world” conditions.
Our sales philosophy, first and foremost, is that we sell recumbent bikes, trikes, and accessories from the perspective of riders. If we personally wouldn’t use it, ride it or buy it, we don’t sell it.
Secondly, we work from a perspective as cycling advocates who rode when bike commuting was still considered an extreme sport in New York City. And we engaged in grassroots advocacy when the New York City Department of Transportation seemed to wish that cyclists would all just die. Wow, things have changed. But we still won’t rest till everyone who can do so is safely and happily riding a bike or trike to work, to the store, or to the beach or woods.
Thirdly, we seek to grow our business by creating a generation of dedicated and satisfied recumbent bike and trike riders by selling only the best products we can, at the best prices possible.
We’re one of only 15 “premium dealers” in the USA for HP Velotechnik. This German manufacturer is internationally respected for their extremely high-quality recumbent bikes and trikes. We keep their most popular models in stock.
We’re also a top dealer of Cruzbike road and race recumbent bikes. We keep all their high-performance bikes in stock. We’ve taught hundreds of people how to ride these unique and exceptionally fast recumbent bikes. Don’t get us started about Cruzbikes. We love them.
