"Dear Mr Black

Here are some pictures of the first Quadribent in Europe! Cycling on one of the last sunny autumn days alongside the river Schelde in Belgium.

We knicknamed it “the good mood bike”: because, in passing, all walkers and bikers start smiling upon seeing us, Kristina smiling and enjoying her ride, completely relaxed. Your invention is based on a simple idea, that one wonders why we have not found it earlier and why we were the first.

Now indeed, our daughter, for whom cycling on an individual bike and ordinary tandem had become a painstaking effort, for the first time in years, has found pleasure in cycling again. The quadribent is not only a more social solution (chatting with your co-driver - also now anybody can be co-driver), but also a more ergonomic one for people with cerebral palsy, as now they can sit comfortably and pedal in the front direction, which makes the feet less spastic and without need for splints.

Also from the point of rehabilitation it is a wonderful solution, as now they can move their legs, exercise their quadriceps (quadriceps weakness is a reported problem for people with cerebral palsy), steer again and pedal at their own comfortable pace. Much better than the more passive biking solutions such as a wheel-chair bike and a hand-driven bike. The Quadribent is pleasure and good sense together. Thank you so much!

EZ Quadribent in Virginia Beach!

Biking with their Quadribent on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

"Enclosed is a picture of our Quadribent on the boardwalk in Virginia Beach with Mr.& Mrs. Ton aboard; Transportation was no problem with frame parts in the car trunk and the two bikes on a conventional bike rack. We enjoyed riding it on the boardwalk for 4 days in October. The boardwalk is 3 miles end to end. We assembled and disassembled each day since we had to store the bikes in our hotel room and the frame parts in the car overnight. We averaged about 15 minutes for disassembly and 20 minutes for assembly and didn't need to use any tools. ... The rides were worth the time - extremely enjoyable!

Hi Jim!

We spoke with you at the Bike Show in March 2007 and purchased a quadribent ... on March 28, 2007. We have thoroughly enjoyed it since then.... We are within 25 miles of reaching a new milestone of 4000 miles of riding together with your bike design!!!

Thank you for the many happy and pleasant miles we've ridden together and for all the "smiles" we have "counted and collected" along the way!!!

Linda & Tom E."

"I love riding the Quadribent! The cargo platform makes it handy to take a picnic lunch and bike to the park or the beach. Because the recumbent seats are so comfortable, I feel like riding longer. I like the side-by-side 'sociable' aspect, which makes biking with others fun.

"The Quadribent is such a unique vehicle, it turns heads, gets double-takes and awed expressions from onlookers. I like all the attention and smiles I get when I ride it. The Quadribent rocks!
