    That one appears to have gears, but there’s nowhere to put a rim brake on the rear wheels. ‘Course, if he fitted discs…
    Tried a trike once, couldn’t make the bloody thing turn, drove me nuts, then I gave up in disgust.

    I remember the old guys when on then in the Potteries (a serious hot bed of them once) racing them back in the 70s, I always thought cool and I would be on one once. One had a diff lots just driven on one side, weird to turn lift an inside wheel but I saw lots drifting as well!! What I really want is a Windcheeter…….

    i know 2 blokes who took a tandem trike over cutgate in the early 80s.
    on the return leg of a 100 mile day ride.

    tough mountainbikers……pah 😉

    why not add a forth wheel on the front, I’m sure one of them will feel left out being the odd one, but serious wtf is the point, surely the third wheel would actually add rolling resistance and slow you down, and then there’s cornering, yuck.

    The old chap a few doors down the road used to ride them, I think he still has a few, he even used to have a tandem trike, I think.

    My wheelbuilder is rocking the trike stylings. I laughed at first, then tried to follow him round fast corners.

    Wow. Fast!

    forgive me if I’m wrong but I always thought trikes were for people who lacked a sense of balance

    it looks a bit special needs to me, no offence intended

    When I were a lad one of the TTers was diagnosed with epilepsy – so he just moved to a trike – still bloody quick like.
