I have a few current blogs (tadpolerider1, navysight, truthtoponder and stevesmixedbag) so I am keeping busy. I hope you the reader will find these blogs interesting and enjoy your time here. Feel free to email me at tadpolerider2 at gmail dot com (


  1. Sorry, but you won’t find any trike reviews on this blog. In order to review something one has to have personal experience with it. There are not any trike manufacturers who make their trikes available to me and I certainly can’t buy them.

  2. I have seen them, some time ago when first looking into buying a bent for myself, But because of its difference in price I felt it must fall short on it’s abilities, and that was the reason for the very large difference in cost.. But OK..! I know it is no Catrike, or ICE, but it is a great starter trike for someone who is shy on cash, and not expecting to much in return for the cost of a PERFORMER JC-70 TADPOLE, even though it’s easy on the eyes, and a big difference in cost to the novice who is not so recumbent trike familiar and just looking to get into riding right away.. And at $1389.00 it isn’t so cheap either, and because of the chances of a bike shop in your area having trikes to start with, you would have to have one shipped to you, so now you must have one trucked to you, and the cost of shipping is nothing to sneeze at either,.. OK…! So now you have one sent to you, and when it gets there you still will have to do some prep before you can ride, but if you are not mechanically inclined, you will need to have someone get it ride ready, so you have shipping and assembly, to add to the cost.. Now you are all said and done the cost is almost doubled in cost for a trike that is not even top of the line and not capable of the performance that you would get from the Catrike or the ICE, so where is the savings on that…? Hay I’m going to be honest here, I was not in the position of even buying a PERFORMER JC-70 TADPOLE either, but because I have a bunch of really great friends I had almost the entire cost of my bent quad paid for by them holding fundraisers in order to pay for it.. Thanks Guys…! Hopefully that won’t be the case for you, and you are able to make the transition to a trike a lot easier than I when I first thought about buying a trike non the less a bent quad.. What ever your decision, I hope you get the chance to have the same experiences as we do while riding a bent, and many a mile all filled with smiles to you every time you get on it…!
