Catrike discontinues Hyper-yellow and Eon-green recumbent colors
Catrike has discontinued its popular Hyper-yellow and Eon-green colors due to supply issues with the green powder-coating ingredient used in both colors.
Because Catrike builds and powdercoats its own frames in-house, they have tremendous flexibility in making production changes on the fly. They also enjoy experimenting with powder combinations to make unique colors.
Hyper-yellow and Eon-green were the result of this experimentation and both relied on the same green ingredient component. However, late in 2016, there was a glitch in the supply of this green powder.
Now, the few remaining new Eon-green and Hyper-yellow Catrikes will be the last ones.
Other manufacturers using standard European RAL colors can produce a hyper-yellow equivalent by using an RAL equivalent.
(Note: some day-glo / flourescent-style colors can have long-term fading from exposure to the sun.)

Catrike has made wider hubs with through-axles standard equipment on all large-wheel models. This change affects the following recumbent trike models: Expedition, 559, Dumont, and 700. The change promotes laterally stronger wheels and prevents movement within the dropouts under load at the expense of compatibility with equipment such as electric hub moters that are designed to the older 135mm dropout widths.

Catrike announces the Eola, a new recumbent trike model for 2019.
This new hyper-yellow Catrike 700 is one of last 700's produced in this color.
The eye-catching color is best described as a dayglo or tennis-ball color and it contrasts well with the black highlights of the rest of the trike.
