1990 - the year the first web page was created, it was also the year that Ian Sims built his first recumbent bike from metal scraps, and later a recumbent trike- which attracted much attention and praise as he rode for 540 kms around his home state of Victoria, Australia. GreenSpeed was born and quickly became synonymous with innovation, superior design, comfort and functionality for people all over the world.
“I find it very interesting that when I started over 20 years ago, recumbent bikes were far more popular in the USA than recumbent trikes, yet I found I was selling over ten times as many trikes than bikes. Just 4 years ago, I noticed that most of my dealers in the USA had started to sell more trikes than bikes! So, I guess we have to ask ourselves, “Where will this lead? I often look at the number of cars on the road versus the motorbikes. Could it be that trikes will eventually take over from ordinary bikes, in the same way the safety bike took over from the Penny Farthing?
I have discovered that so much is about perceptions rather than scientific facts.”
