TerraTrike Dealer Changes Lives Once Again
April 17, 2018
One of our great dealers – Gary of Northwest Recumbents – is at it again, He does wonderful things with our trikes for extremely deserving people.
With a smile and a flourish, Gary Dagastine pulled off the white sheet that covered Kate Danner’s new bike.
She clambered aboard and settled into the wide seat, her shoes on the metal floorboards, her hands on the big crank that powered the three-wheeled machine. Dagastine gave her a push, Kate turned the handles and the bike started rolling.
“It’s cool,” said Kate, a soft-spoken 13-year-old from Coeur d’Alene. “It felt good. I like it.”
The one-of-a-kind contraption was unveiled Saturday at Northwest Recumbent Cycles in Post Falls, a company Dagastine
owns and operates. About six months earlier, Kate’s parents, Suzie and Jason Danner, had contacted Dagastine and inquired about a special bike for their daughter.
“Now that I think of it, he never actually gave us a quote,” Suzie recalled in an e-mail. “I told him it wouldn’t be until this next spring, but he said he wanted to meet her to see what would work for her, so he could start working on it.”
