At Utah Trikes, we are all about tricking out your trike. If we can make it faster, more comfortable, and more fun, then we'll do it. Here you'll find much of what we keep in stock and available online. For even more stuff visit our Main Street shop in Utah. Items that are ordered at the same time as your trike can be installed at no additional cost under most circumstances.
We ship trikes nationwide fully assembled to your door via freight shipping. Products not ordered with a trike will ship via UPS or USPS.
Since many of our trikes don't have horizontal handlebars like a standard upright bike, we have to be a little creative when it comes to mounting accessories. These mounts have all been tested by us and are suitable for attaching headlights, bike computers, and more to your trike. Typically the mount itself attaches to the front derailleur post, but you can put it other places depending on your needs.
These bags are typically used on diamond frame bikes and mounted on the handlebar. On a trike they can be mounted next to the seat for easy and convenient access to your belongings. They can also function as arm wrests depending on the trike setup. The mounts attach to the seat of the frame of the trike and add a horizontal bar next to the seat for mounting a bar bag.
If you are looking here you won't be surprised at how many people tend to misplace these little plastic plugs. Use these plugs to hide the open ends of tubing and prevent water from getting in the frame, handlebars, boom, etc.
In addition to making yourself seen on the road with flags and lights you can also make yourself heard. Our horns are LOUD and will definitely get the car drivers' attention. On the trails and bike baths a bell is more appropriate.
Booms are the part of the trike that slides in and out of the frame to make adjustments for leg length. Often they are cut shorter for the particular rider, so if you are the new owner of a used trike you may need one. We offer replacement booms for all the trikes we sell,
If you want to be able to easily share your trike with different size rider then you want one of these. Basically they work by taking up the extra chain as the boom is shortened. Combined with a quick release boom they make adjusting your trike on the fly a non-issue.
Squeeze them and the trike stops. Pretty straightforward on the surface. Our most popular brake lever upgrades are the locking levers to keep your trike from rolling away on you. We also offer single-hand levers that can operate both brakes with just the one lever.
We carry the full line of Jagwire cables and housing. Jagwaire cables are coated for low resistance. The housings use low-resistance sleeves as well. We sell bulk cable and housing bundles and can also cut them to length for you.
With the advent of YouTube it has never been easier to share videos of your life experiences. And, what is more exciting than videos of your trike? Or, of you riding your trike? Or, of other people riding trikes?
Many people are becoming interested in recumbent trikes as a mode of transportation for touring, commuting, and even the total replacement of other vehicles. Whether, you need a trailer to carry large loads, panniers to carry your laptop, or just a small bag to hold your tools and spare tube, we have it!
One of the most vital components of your trike can also be one of the most overlooked. We offer spare links, replacement chains, and all the tools you need to work on them. Don't forget to check out our lubrication section too.
Mounting a computer on a trike typically requires a few parts. Since most computers come with mounts for a standard bicycle handlebar it is necessary to add a place to mount it. Some of the mounts are trike-specific, but most mounts are universal and very adaptable.
Most trike computers are designed to be mounted on a bike's handlebar and the sensor mounted next to the front wheel. On a tadpole trike the sensor is typically mounted next to the front left wheel. The sensor mount connects up to the bolt on the tierod and positions the sensor next to the spokes.
The Crankset is what you pedal. It is comprised of the crank arms (which come in different lengths) and the chainring(s) which set the gear range for the rear gearing. Larger chainrings result in higher gearing and faster potential speed. Smaller chainrings make it easier to climb hills with lower overall gearing.
Increase your top speed by reducing your wind resistance, and keep warmer and dryer at the same time. Whether a fairing, tailsok, or other aerodynamic upgrade this is a good place to find what you're looking for. Our fairing kits include all the hardware you need to mount the fairing to your trike.
It's nice to keep water and mud off your face when you ride. Fenders not only look cool, but they'll keep the dirt off your face. And they're not just for rainy days either. Everyone waters their lawn which means often the roads are still wet.
This front derailleur and shifter are responsible for moving the chain from one chainring to another on the crankset. Most people never have any reason to change to a different chanring, but if you need one we got 'em.
More than just a replacement crankset, our Front Gearing kits are complete solutions. Whether you are looking for a planetary geared crank or a high-end road crank with derailleur and shifter, this is where you will find it.
Trikes have front wheels that are different than those on a conventional bicycle. The wheels are made to be supported from just one side and most have hubs with disc brake mounts. We offer replacement front wheels for all the trikes we carry as well as parts for the home-builder. Note that none of our wheels come with tires, tubes, brake rotors, or axles unless specifically listed in the product description. Wheels are also sold each and not priced as pairs.
If you are going to ride at night a good headlight is a necessity. Even if you'll neverberiding when the sun goes down , a good headlight can add to your visibility. We offer many headlights with that are battery powered, rechargeable, and some that work with hub generators.
Get comfortable with one of our headrests. Most trikes have specific headrests that attach to the seat. Many of the headrests can be used on other trikes, so if you see something you like and want to know just ask us.
Idlers are a crucial component of any recumbent chainline. The idlers guide the chain down under the seat and keep the chain away from the fraame. A good idler system will run smooth and quiet. We offer replaacement idlers for all our trikes as well as premium idlers by TerraCycle. Made in the USA, TerraCycle idlers are the best available, featuring replaceable bearings sand cogs. If you have a special situation and need help choosing the right idlers or kit let us know.
Keep all the moving parts on your trike rolling smoothly. Like most recumbents, our trikes have long chains that need to be maintained. Keeping your chain clean and well lubricated will make it last longer and shift smoother.
Getting the right pedals on your trike can make all the difference. Clipless pedals will attach your feet to the cranks and allow you to properly "spin" the cranks. This results in more power, faster speeds, and less impact on the joints.
Looking for an easier way to handle hills? Want to go faster? Maybe you want a year-round commuter and you muscles just don't go as fast when it's cold out. We have motor systems to help you up the hills or even convert your trike to a full-fledge Go-Cart.
A portable hand pump should be an essential part of your trike kit. All of our smaller pumps can mount to the water bottle bracket, or mount under the seat. For more routine maintenance in your garage we recommend getting a floor pump.
Most of the trike manufacturers have something against putting a rear brake on a tadpole trike. There is something to that though since during hard braking the rider weight gets shifted to the front of the trike and it's easy to lock up the rear. Nothing beats a rear brake for scrubbing speed off down a hill though. Many trikes already have the mounts for a brisken on the rear for "parking brake" purposes.
The Cassette is the cluster of sprocket that goes on the rear wheel. It must be matched properly with the rear derailleur and the chain. Typically aluminum cassettes will shift smoother and run quieter than steel cassettes.
We offer both replacement stock derailleurs and upgrades to keep you shifting properly. If you upgrade to a different model rear derailleur, be aware that you will usually need to change shifters as well.
We define a "Rear Gearing Setup" as a package that comprises everything needed to swap or replace the rear gearing on a trike. This is mainly so that we can offer fair and balanced prices in our trike configurators, but also so that customers that want to do a complete swap out can. So that all rear gearing systems are interchangeable, they include the wheel, hub, cassette or sprocket, derailleur or tensioner, corresponding shifter with cables, and appropriate chain. If you do not need all of those parts you can choose the individual parts throughout our catalog. If you need help deciding which system is right for you please let us know.
In case you are a novice, rim refers only to the outer hoop in the wheel. The Rim is laced to the hub with the spoke. We offer a large variety of high-quality double-wall rims. We also offer spokes cut to length from our Wheel Building Dept.
One of the reason that our trikes are so comfy is that most of them have a wide seat mesh that carries your weight and supports your back. If you do a lot of riding, you'll eventually wear your mesh out. Manufacturers routinely upgrade their seat meshes to increase the comfort as well.
This category only has a couple of items. Seat wings, also called love handles, are side extensions for the hardshell seats. Besides adding some extra support for your lower back they also keep you in the seat during hard cornering.
There are two main types of shifters, twist shifters and bar end shifters. While most front shifters are interchangeable rear shifters must always be matched with the rear gearing system. If you are not sure what you need check with us.
We consider a good taillight to be your the important safety device you can have on the road. Nothing will get a driver's attention like a bright flashing light. We have rechargeable models as well as standard battery models and even lights that work with hub generators. Most models feature bright LEDs and have different flashing modes to provide the most visibility.
There is generally nothing that will change your trike's riding characteristics more than tires. If you want to go faster then start with the tires. If you want a smoother ride then start with the tires. If you want more traction? You guessed it! Start with the tires. But, here's the clincher: Every tire is a compromise. A fast tire will ride harder and offer less puncture resistance. A fat cushy tire will ride smoother but won't handle as well as the narrow high-pressure rubber. If you need help choosing, decide what aspect is the most important for you and let us know.
We recommend that our customers learn to do their own basic maintenance. With just a few basic tools you can handle just about any maintenance on your trike. All of our trikes use metric hardware, so at a minimum a good set of allen tools should be part of your kit.
Most of our trikes will work with any standard bicycle trailer. Whether you're touring, living a "car-free" lifestyle, or want to tow your grandchildren on the bike trails, we have a trailer that will work for you.
One of the first questions people ask when they start getting into trikes is how to transport them and store them. If you don't have a folding trike you'll need to put the trike in or on your vehicle. We offer many hitch solutions to carry one or two trikes or even a combination of trikes and bikes. We also offer solutions for minimizing the storage space.
This is why you came here right? We keep hundreds of trikes in stock at any time and are masters at building custom configurations. We do our own powder coating in house and have over 35 colors to choose from. We have our own machine shop and make our own custom parts. 95% of the trikes we sell are shipped out directly to customers fully assembled. We encourage you to use the tools on our website and take advantage of our knowledgeable staff to help us build you the perfect trike.
Many of our trikes use Presta valve tubes which can be hard to find at your local bike shop, so we recommend always keeping a spare. We stock all the sizes of tubes in both Prestacycle and standard Schrader valves.
