    I could seriously want one of these. It might just be the colour... It feels fast just sitting in it!

    I'm thinking of some of the hills I was tearing down on holiday on 3 wheels, and imagining them with bugger all wind resistance..;)

    That is the least wind resistance possible and no mistake.;)

    It does look nice, it is made by a Canadian canoe manufacturer I understand.

    Once I have finished the design for the carbon tail boxes on the 700 and the Expedition I may look at other items to see how velomobile like I can get a Catrike.

    I was thinking, I've got a trike, so with some bamboo canes for a frame, and the world's biggest knitted sock...

    On second thoughts, perhaps not...

    I think they look funny because you can't see what's going on inside. Like a duck swimming on a pond.

    I've held back on this one because I'm just not sure about it.
    It's always made me think of Motorbike fairings these days that cost a fortune to replace if they get cracked or broken.

    Maybe it was because I was once asked to leave an American 'bent site because of silly comments I made about body shells.

    I just thought one of these would be good on my KMX?

    All I did was express a preference for the Reliant Regal(top)as to passers by it would be going backwards down the road.:biggrin:

    I think it would look great painted purple with some 'veins' painted down the side

    It is Arch, in the vid and in?/on the trike!!

    Considering your excesses of chocolate in France, how did they manage to tempt you into giving the trike back?

    They put a Mars bar in such a place that she had to get off to reach it.

    Ahem!

    Yes, I'm the woman seen riding it outside, with the manic grin and the hair-all-over-the-place. It was windy, but to be honest, my hair looks like that most of the time anyway...:blush:

    Tdr1nka, yes, we were being VERY careful not to scratch it - that's why it goes so slowly through the exit tent - you can't see, but Jase is fitting between some narrowly placed trestle tables... On the other hand, I suspect fibreglass can be re-polished if necessary and repaired if you know what you're doing.

    I'm in love. Luckily for Arch the object of my affections is the trike!
