Lightfoot Cycles – Lightfoot cycles are very high quality bikes, trikes, and recumbents. They are engineered for safety and durability. They are handcrafted in the US of aircraft grade chromoly steel, and each one comes with a lifetime frame warranty. All-wheel disk braking on every Lightfoot means that when you want to stop, you STOP. Ergonomic positioning puts the rider as they would be positioned in a car, and the seat and handlebars adjust to fit riders from 4’10” to 6’4″. Their seats are outrageously comfortable and can be hand-adjusted and contoured to fit the rider’s own body type. They also customize for special needs.
Lightfoot Cycles have informed us that our bicycle engine kit mounts to every Lightfoot bike model – trike, recumbent or upright.
Lightfoot Cycle writes:
“The first Golden Eagle that we installed for a customer was picked up at our shop in Darby and driven by him from Montana all the way back to his place in Iowa. He wrote to tell us that he calculated mileage of 250 mpg for his trip. He carried all his gear on his Lightfoot trike, and he had a lot of gear. The Golden Eagle and the Lightfoot both performed flawlessly.”
