As an independent bicycle dealer I am not hamstrung by certain bicycle manufacturers by only carrying their brand of bikes. I sincerely believe the customer should have options in choosing from many bicycles to meet their needs. That is why May Street Bicycles is one of only three authorized Catrike Dealers in North Carolina.
Today we had a client pick up her modified Catrike Expedition. She wanted a trike that she could ride on trails at Resevoir Park in Southern Pines. So we made some minor changes to allow her to easily ride on gravel and sand. The Expedition was the perfect bike to allow cleance for knobby mountain bike tires. The Expedition is a long wheel base Sport-Luxury Catrike that is capable of handling heavy loads for long distance touring and a fast performance ride. As well, by replacing the tires our customer will enjoy the trails. Check out the picture below:)
The Expedition retails for $2,550.00 but my client hit the mother load by purchasing this bike for only $1,500.00. We took this Expedition on trade in and it was in excellent condition. Just an FYI, we have one more available in the shop for the exact same price of $1,500.00. So if you are considering getting a high quality recumbent stop in for a test ride... soon. This bikes do not collect dust at the shop.
So why consider riding a recumbent trike you ask? Below are many reasons recumbent cycles are preferred over traditional uprights:

May Street Bicycles is not your typical bike shop. Sure we sell awesome bicycles, provide bicycle repairs, and rental bikes all at great prices. But we do a great deal more such as dynamic bike fitting, metabolic testing, altitude training, and personal training.
