At this time of year it is worth having something chunky on the rear as slicks can "spin" on wet leaves or ice. Trikes are superb in these conditions as you simply slide rather than fall off, but as the force you exert can be much greater a grip in bad conditions is more inportant than speed.tdr1nka said:Yeah, the wire wheels are lovely, Mrs. Tdr1nka has a standard KMX which has the plastic wheels and only 7 gears, but then she doesn't use it on the road either.
I need to do some saving as I need a complete block and chainset for the MTB and a street or hybrid chain ring set for the KMX.
I will ask Santa for a set of real skinny slicks. The tyres that come with the trike give terrible drag and do need ditching, after the wet weather maybe.
Up next I intend to fashion front mudguards from 3lt. plastic milk bottles!
