Queensland Recumbent is Too far for a Trike and Servicing
We are not too far away if you want to have your trike serviced locally. There are many bike shops familiar with Greenspeed Recumbents which are more than happy to provide ongoing service. Some of these shops are service focussed and can deal with servicing much better than a sales only focused store. We put recumbent trikes together here and can provide service but servicing your trike here is not compulsory or even directly sought.
You can comfortably buy here and not need to do a return trip a couple of years down the track for servicing. Physically trialling a trike is far better than buying online from a picture. You may be surprised there’s a difference you can really feel going from a photo to a recumbent trike. When you put your seat on a seat you can be far more confident your decision meets your needs!
- You can buy here and service elsewhere.
- A service to your recumbent can be carried out by any competent bike service technician.
- Our customers are welcome to contact us at any stage.
You’re on the Sunshine Coast
Yes, so when you come, plan to make a day of it. Arrive early, experience recumbents, ask some questions then wander into the Noosa surrounds. Have lunch on the river or visit the local …beaches. When you have mulled over your recumbent encounter and return, ask further questions. Refresh your sensors with a sit in the seat or two.
We obviously can’t be next door to everyone. I’m sure our customers would generally agree that there time here is well worth a little travel.
A local bike shop where you are scanned at the door to detect the presence of Spandex (Lycra) can be quicker to visit. You’ll get better attention perhaps if you walk a little odd and appear to have something stuck in your cleated shoes. We do have concrete here, so you can make a little noise with your shoes if you like but it is likely where the trikes are parked is just grass.
We can offer a seat in the shade and a glass of cold water and the grass won’t be that long you can’t see the trikes. Yes, we do generally have a couple or more trikes here you can get the feel of.
While the local bike shop may be closer, sometimes you can spend much more time waiting for answers or to sit in a recumbent seat. You may well leave the store none the wiser for your situation. We are not big business but have easily made up for the distance many times over.
Shopping for a Recumbent
Having been there and done that, we have an idea on experiences and important factors in such a decision.
We’ve also seen a few would-be riders coming through that have special requirements for a recumbent. We can help in many areas but failing that, we will do our best to find the answer for you.
The reality is, service plays a very small part of your recumbent. It is more important to have the right trike and be comfortable in or on your trike. They are still a large investment and you want it to be a well thought purchase.
Our thoughts on it all is we don’t want you just to buy a product. If you are not happy we’d rather you just asked questions and then go and consider your recumbent needs. If later you would like to bring your custom here, we will help you to make that happen. Two happy customers are far better than 50 unhappy customers who are disappointed.
Thank you for your interest and time.
