Or... a recumbent tricycle - even more fun in my opinion...ChrisKH said:
man, they look like great fun! I imagine you can build up some serious speed on one of those machines (low centre of gravity, greater power on pedals etc). I must try a 'bent one day. Somehow.Arch said:

They are serious fun. I have an ICE T and I refer to it as my 'smilemobile' due to the reaction I get from folk as I pedal along. Mine is not the lightest of machines - on the flat I'm slower on the 'bent than I am on the upright bike - but the 'bent is heavier. On uphills the 'bent is slower but easier - you can go as slow as you like and you're not going to wobble & fall off. Plus you can stop - stick on the parking brake & the thing won't roll away from you. Going downhill is fun - it's like having your own personal rollercoaster. And it's very, very stable - so when the roads are slippy, it's my steed of choice.Maz said:man, they look like great fun!
