    Anyone on a trike wearing blue - arriving at Liverpool Street Station at about 10am today on the Norwich-London train?

    black - blue - 10 (though the train was from Norfolk).

    The 'bent was a black trike (single wheel at the back - is that the same on all?). Very low (the guy was bent over trying to push it along the platform) with side controls.

    If you see him again, tell him to pull it! :biggrin:

    The trike, not Jezston's finger.

    We have a Catrike owner Norwich way with a black Expedition, if I recall the owner did go to London on a semi regular basis although I am not aware if he ever takes his trike. Generally trike owners tow the trike by lifting the back wheel so it seems odd he was pushing it, sounds like a new owner.

    eeee the cave man drag, normally accompanied by mumbling commentary, to whit "sodding council mumble mumble sodding call that a mumble mumbl bicycle track mumble mumble :angry:". is it nice or a bit big brother that given a vague description and general locality a trikeonaut can normally be identified :sad:

    Yup. Fairly sure it was one of those - what with the head rest and all. Had a garmin or tomtom attached to the side.

    Maybe he was some sort of one man band then?

    Two wheels at the front = tadpole trike, by the way. Two wheels at the back = delta.


    I think I'd say that tadpole is more common among recumbent trikes, but delta isn't uncommon, if that makes sense. The lower ones certainly tend to be tadpoles.
