That’s where I bought mine. RBM seems reasonably honest, and they are a mile from my house.

I also recommend Richardson Bike Mart.
Fort Worth Cycling & Fitness carries TerraTrikes. I bought mine there & the owner James loves riding trikes himself. Maintenance on the trike is free if you buy it there. Here is the contact information: 
      Fort Worth Cycling and Fitness 
      3315 Cherry Lane, Fort Worth, TX 76116 
      Phone: 817-244-7911  
      Store Hours: Monday-Friday 9:30-7:00, Saturday 9:30-6:00, Closed Sunday 

I have been very happy with their shop.

  The key to any recumbent purchase, if possible, is to TEST RIDE FIRST...  Take a trip to Dallas to visit RBM, they've at least got a decent selection on the floor, or better yet, go to north Austin to visit Easy Street Recumbents - the hands-down best 'bent shop in Texas, with EVERYTHING imaginable on the floor... 

  Personally, I would NOT buy the "BabyBoomer" -- heavy, only 7 speeds, 24" rear wheels (hard to find replacement tires), and the seat doesn't look very comfortable, either.  This is a trike that you won't ride more than maybe 5 miles or so...

    I came across this trike at the following website

    http://www.bicyclingworld.com/templates/product.aspx?rqProductID=7069

    It is $900 incl. shipping and $75 rebate to put it together at a bike shop. 
    It only has 7 speeds.  Does anyone know anything more about this trike, how it rides, etc. Thanks.
