Tadpole trikes are the tricycle with two wheels at the front that steers. The two wheels in the front make the cornering slightly better at speed, offering more stability to resisting cornering forces. The weight distribution at the front is more so it provides better stability and control over steering and braking.

How big is a Catrike expedition trike frame?

The size of the Expedition makes it the ideal Catrike for larger riders. The frame has a 275 lb warranty weight limit, like many of the other Catrikes. The seat recline is not adjustable, but at 37 degrees from horizontal, I find it nice. Not extreme but comfy and pretty aero.

Is the Catrike expedition a direct steer bike?

Like all Catrikes the Expedition has direct steering. Now before you say “direct steer is twitchy at high speed” try the Expedition (or the Catrike 700.) I think the long wheelbase of these trikes gives them very good high-speed stability. The best I’ve felt in a direct steer bike and better than many indirect steer trikes, in my opinion.

Are there neck rests on a Catrike expedition?

The lumbar curve on the Expedition is a nice addition I really like it. The Catrike seat cover has many buckles which allow you to in effect adjust the amount of lumbar curve but tightening and loosening them. The “space” neck rest is a nice one but I don’t like neck rests much myself. Another nice addition is the TerraCycle chain idler.

How big are the tires on a Catrike?

I think the big rear tire also gives a bit less rolling resistance, certainly on rougher roads (chip seal) or gravel bike paths. It also gives a bit smoother ride, never a strong point on a Catrike due to their rigid frames. The 26” rear, 20” front tires are probably the most widely available sizes found on a recumbent.
