The price of the Fat Tad CX without electric assist is $1899.00. Adding an electric assist system with installation brings the cost BEFORE battery to $2854.00. At this point, we've installed a platform behind the seat which will seat the battery of your choice. Batteries powerful enough to adequately power this beast start at 48v 14ah. Most likely, you'll want a 52v 17ah battery. See the battery choices in the options menu.
The Fat Tad CX we have pictured here was our first model setup. It was initially intended to demonstrate to recumbent customers how a mid-drive system can be mounted on a Bottom Bracket of a recumbent trike. It is featured with aBBSHD 1000w and a 48V 14ah Lithium Battery.
*Special Handling Time & Shipping Timeline. From the date of your purchase, we will need 3-5 days to complete the build. There are several unique accessory clamps which will hold your console display as well as other accessories you may decide to add (such as mirror, bike computer, phone mount, water bottle cage, etc.). The brakes are standard disc rotors, but we do offer an upgrade to Shimano Hydraullic E-Brakes which provide much stronger stopping power (see options).
After the build, we schedule a Class 9 Hazmat pickup from the DGIS dept. of Fed Ex. This is required by law due to size and capacity of the lithium battery. We could ship the battery separately but the wiring is more difficult for the end-user to assemble once the trike arrives.
You will need to assemble the wheels, seat, and a few accessory mounts which we will detail in a video that demonstrates what the trike looked like before we deconstructed it into the boxes. The videos are very easy to follow and you should have not trouble.
Shipping time from FedEx DGIS Ground is between 4-10 days depending on your region and zipcode. We offer a pallete shipping option for $400.00 extra if you choose. This means the trike is put on a pallet completely built and shrink wrapped. It is shipped by private freight.
