The Hostel Shoppe mission statement is, “Improving lives through
enjoyable exercise.” In keeping with this mission statement the new
catalog is more about solving your problems and a bit less about
products.
Products will still be in the catalog but we will rely on the website
for more detail. The catalog will help you find solutions for your
problems and answers to your questions. It can be a valuable tool
for you to use when talking to your friends about riding recumbents.
This will be done by integrating the catalog with our new website
where you will find a wealth of information about recumbent bikes
and trikes. Everything from maintenance and shifting strategy to
defensive riding and defensive dressing is now on the Hostel Shoppe
website along with much more. In addition, stories about how other
customers solved their problems are very informative and you are
invited to submit your stories to the “Testimonials” knowledge base
of our website.
In an effort to reduce our carbon footprint, the Hostel Shoppe catalog
is now available in PDF format. Catalog requests, on our website, will
automatically be fulfilled with a PDF catalog, which facilitates regular
updating and greater accuracy. However, we recognize that not all of
our customers live in the virtual world and may prefer a printed copy
of the catalog. Printed copies of the catalog will be available upon
request.

Finding the Right Recumbent Bike or Trike For You
Recumbent bikes and trikes are available in a variety of designs, shapes and sizes. It’s easy to be
overwhelmed by all the choices. Helping you sort this out is what we do. What’s best for you
guides the entire process. You will have the opportunity to visit with us about everything related
to your riding. Then, with a complete picture of your riding situation, we can quickly help you
pick out two or three bikes or trikes to test ride.
Your ability to test ride is crucial to making the right decision and the test riding facility at the
Hostel Shoppe is second to none. You can ride on our paved test track or on several nearby
bike trails. All the roads in the Portage County Business Park are lightly traveled and have bike
lanes. Nearby country roads are lightly traveled and we frequently send customers out on
longer test rides with maps and que sheets. We make it easy for you to get “out of the parking
lot” and test ride in an environment similar to what you have at home.
When you are done with this process you will know, from experience, which bike or trike is
best for your needs.

Another Way to Turn a Crank
Recumbent trikes and recumbent bikes offer two different ways
to have fun riding. Instead of viewing it as one or the other, why
not increase your riding fun by having both?
One day while riding my trike, I met a friend on his mountain
bike. Usually he would be on his road bike but not this time.
It hit me like “a ton of bricks”. Of course; conventional bike
riders frequently have both a mountain bike and a road bike.
Two different experiences turning a crank. Recumbent trikes are
another enjoyable way to ride and get exercise along with all the
health benefits. Give it a chance and you will quickly find that you
prefer the trike over the bike for certain rides.

Recumbent Tandems
Recumbent tandems have made huge gains in the world of tandem
biking. People often experience more discomfort on an upright
tandem than on an upright single bike. Stretching or shifting around
on the tandem is more difficult since it needs to be done in unison. If
either member of the tandem team is uncomfortable, the team will
not be doing as much riding. A recumbent is the solution to keep
them riding as a team. We have experienced no downsides to riding
a recumbent tandem, and it’s been our experience that recumbent
tandems climb as well as upright tandems.
Barb and I have been riding recumbent tandems since 1996 and
it has become our favorite way to travel. We have many fond
memories of B&B tours through the hills of the Coulee Region near
LaCrosse, WI, day trips in central Wisconsin and traversing the State
on GRABAAWR. We have ridden a variety of Rans, Vision and Volae
tandems.
Various tandem trikes are also great options if you want to travel in
comfort and not have to worry about balance. Some of them can
even be uncoupled to be used as single trikes.

KNEESAVERS - Pedal Extenders
Adaptive Cycling
Outdoor recreation can provide health benefits for everyone and
cycling is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, spend time with family
and friends, and improve health and overall fitness levels. Cycling is
also a low impact sport on the body. For a variety of reasons, many
people have not been able to enjoy the benefits of cycling, but with
today’s variety of recumbent trikes and a number of adaptive aids,
the world of cycling is now open to many members of the disabled
community. Adaptive cycling is a multi-disability sport, where we take
a stock cycle and adapt it to the needs of an individual rider, and since
no two disabilities are identical, a variety of adaptations can be made.
We’ve helped a number of adults and children with various disabilities
from Multiple Sclerosis, stroke, birth defects, injuries from accidents,
etc. get back out and enjoy the sport they love. Adaptive aids run
the gamut from special pedals with or without lower leg braces,
crank shorteners, two-into-one brake levers for one handed
braking, moving the controls to one side or the other, cane holders,
electric assist, seat belts, etc. Call us at 800-233-4340, email us at
[email protected] or visit us at the store for your personal
consultation.
Hase - Pedals with Toe
Clips & Adjustable Heel
Sling
Helps to eliminate knee pain as well as improve
biomechanics. Distancing the pedals further
apart improves pedaling efficiency and power.
Pair.
As an alternative to cleat systems: these pedals
hold the front portion of the foot with a brace,
guaranteeing the correct foot position, while
the elastic strap around the heel prevents
slipping.
Greenspeed - Grab Handles
for 16 or 20 inch wheels
Grab Handles are designed to make getting in
and out of a tadpole trike easier.
Hase - Adjustable
Platform Pedal

For Heel Sling riders that use sandals or other
footwear that has an open heel. The Heel Pads
encapsulates the cables and protects your skin.
ICE - Helping Handles
Helping Handles make it much easier to sit

of the trike increases confidence and reduces
stress for those that may find getting on and off
the Adventure or Sprint more difficult.
Hase - Pedal Pendulum w/
Shorteners
Perfect solution for riders with limited rangeof-motion in one or both knees. They allow the
rider’s foot to move in a smaller circle which
requires less bend at the knee.

trike more easily, the Versa Bars are a simple
and effective solution. The bars mount easily
to the existing handlebar tubes on any of
our current TerraTrike models, and can be
positioned however fits you best. There are
two Versa Bars (for the left and right handles)
included per package.
Sun - Two-Into-One
Brake Lever
Great for trikers who need one handed
controls, the Sun Two-Into-One brake lever

right or left side of the trike and operate both
brakes with one hand.

crankarms up to 38mm wide. 298g per pair.
tERRATRIKE - GRIP GLOVE

Why Buy An Electric Assist?
With the ever changing needs of today’s bicycling population, many customers are turning to electric assists for a variety of reasons, whether it’s for commuting,
adaptive cycling for a physical disability or a long range touring assist. The BionX™ system provides an innovative mobility solution for a number of recumbent
bikes and tadpole trikes available in today’s marketplace. Its intuitive technology supports you with additional power that is proportional to the power that you
apply to the pedal. The harder you pedal, the more support you get; when you ease off the pedals, you receive correspondingly less support. When you stop
pedaling, the system also stops delivering assistance. Every single step on the pedal is analyzed individually by the control processor. Your power is balanced, so
you can fully enjoy your trip.
Choose from a variety of options with BionX™:
The BionX Touring Series e-bike systems are perfect for day-to-day city commuting or for leisure rides on the weekend. With proven, award-winning BionX

Putting Trike Height in Perspective
The photo at right shows the relative height of a trike rider and a
Honda Civic. The rider’s helmet is at the same level as the Civic
driver’s eyes. Also, the overall height of the rider is only about 10” less
than the overall height of the Civic.
Ride Right
Remember that we share the road with automobiles. Always be
aware of traffic and avoid riding in the middle of the lane or worse,
the middle of the road. Some riders get comfortable with riding
in the middle of the road. These same riders tend to ride up hills
and around blind corners in the middle of the road. Always ride as
if a “distracted driver” is about to come speeding over the hill or
around the corner. This will increase both your safety and the safety
of your riding group.
Defensive Dressing
Safety flags are recommended. However, don’t make the mistake of
thinking that, because you have a flag on your trike, you don’t need
to dress brightly. In the photo (near right) the flags are not visible
but the rider dressed in the neon yellow is easy to see, even at a
distance. The photo (far right) shows the same riders closer to the
camera. Even here, the rider’s bright clothing completely trumps
the flags for visibility.

Recumbent Trikes – Bike
Shoes and Clipless Pedals
Bike shoes and clipless pedals are highly
recommended for both safety and efficiency
reasons. If your foot slips off the pedal and hits
the ground it can get pulled back under the cross
member of the trike frame and cause an accident,
injury or both.
Since you are on a trike, you don’t have to worry
about doing the embarrassing “Laugh-In fall” at a
stop sign while trying to get unclipped from the
pedals. Clip in when you start and don’t worry
about unclipping until you are ready to get off
your trike.
Study the diagram below to understand the
inefficiency of riding a recumbent (trike or bike)
without clipless shoes and pedals.

Comfort Without Compromise
Recumbents offer uncompromising comfort. You get all this comfort without compromising efficiency, plus you get a better view. You ride with
every part of your body in a natural, and thus, very comfortable position that can be effortlessly maintained on long rides. The large seat and
backrest comfortably supports you. Hands, shoulders, neck, back and butt are all happy from the beginning through the end of the ride. Whether
you ride with a group of “riding club hammerheads” or prefer to ride more leisurely you can find a recumbent that is properly matched to the
required amount of efficiency and speed. When you switch to a recumbent you trade in a view of pavement and ditches for a view of sky and
fields. You will love the uncompromising improvement in the view. It’s not only better, it’s safer.

Custom Shoppe
Not all stock bikes are configured for every rider’s needs. That’s
why Hostel Shoppe has the “Custom Shoppe”; to help you
configure the right bike to suit your riding style and maximize
performance. Customizing a bike can take many different forms.
It can be as simple as starting with a stock bike, and upgrading the
rear derailleur to something better for crisper shifting. Or, if you
have trouble using twist shifters, we can upgrade a trike to bar
end shifters to make it easier for you to use. If you need to lower
your gear inches to climb hills more easily, we can customize the
chainrings and cassette for your needs. Tires can be swapped out
to suit the terrain you are riding on.
We can also special order bikes and trikes from Volae, ICE, HP
Velotechnik, Azub and Hase with different options than the base
models we stock. Options can include Schlumpf drivetrains,
Rohloff drivetrains, brake upgrades, suspension upgrades, plus
more. Custom colors are also available from some companies. We
can also take a frameset and build it up to your specifications. For
example, we have done a number of Volae Carbon 650c frames
in custom colors and 10 speed drivetrains with a carbon crank
option. The possibilities of what we can do to build your dream
bike or trike are endless. Please email [email protected]
or call her at 800-233-4340 ext. 302 for your custom quote.
Hostel Shoppe Recumbent Guarantee
If any recumbent bike purchased from the Hostel Shoppe proves
unsatisfactory; you may return it (using the same shipping materials)
within two weeks of the delivery date (30 days for a Volae bike
purchase, since we are the exclusive dealer). You will be charged
5% of the purchase price of the bike as a rental/demo fee and we
will refund the balance of the bike, less any damage assessments,
to you. You will be responsible for freight charges both ways.
We will refund half the price of any accessories used during the
two-week test period. Please call us at 800-233-4340 for a return
authorization.
*This guarantee only applies to US residents in the contiguous 48 states.
Return guarantee applies to stock configurations only - highly customized
or modified bikes are not returnable. Accessories purchased with your bike
are returnable for full value only if unused and uninstalled. Due to Federal
regulations, our shipper cannot pick up from a residential address, so your
returned bike must be taken to a business address for pick up. Guarantee

used bikes or trade-ins.
Recumbent Packaging
All recumbents are fully assembled and test ridden before shipping.
Some reassembly is required. Visit our web site or call us for
complete details on how each bike is packaged and shipped. If you
lack the proper tools and experience, we highly recommend taking
the bike to a bike shop for reassembly and adjustment.
