Catrike Villager/EXP recumbent trike

The townie trike gets decked out for an adventure. We took the perennial favorite Villager and gave it some of our favorite upgrades:

  • efficient, comfortable 26" rear wheel
  • 155mm mountain cranks with stump-pulling 22T hill-climber
  • Catrike adjustable neckrest
  • extra mirror
  • PBW airflow seat-cushion
  • (chain-adjust mechanism and fairing not included)

Its high seat is easy to get on and off and upright, but adjustable seat gives you a commanding view of the road and the world around.

The Villager/EXP borrows heavily from its more expensive siblings in the Catrike lineup:

  • stability -- due to its wider wheel-track and long wheelbase
  • easily replaced parts --by use of standard BMX 20" wheel-sizes and mountain-style 26" drivewheel
  • top-quality components -- bar-end shifters and 30-speed drivetrain as standard equipment
  • lots of extra value -- like included rear fender, headlight mount, computer-sensor mount, parking brake levers, and mirror mount.

Villager/EXP expands on Catrike's signature space frame with:

  • seat adjustability: see the world with the upright seat angle, or get maximum efficiency with the fully laidback seat angle
  • direct steering with adjustable damping: lightweight and responsive
  • stiffness-enhanced peace boom: extra strong and efficient

The Villager/EXP is fitted with a larger, more efficient drivewheel using dropout extenders. This increases pedaling efficiency, raises the gearing for higher speeds, and lengthens the trike for additional stability.
