So how come the entire thing is so low that you are stressed out from
fear of being splatted not by a bus but by a common low hatchback
because the driver didn't see you?
I believe you're rather more likely to be noticed on a recumbent trike than
on a bike - ie your fear is misplaced.
Indeed, Jute is wrong.
3. The technology is probably mature, and the form of the tadpole
recumbent trike has settled into two ali beams at right angles for
chassis and front frame, with a swing arm for the rear suspension. A
dreadful dullness is creeping over the format, with only esoteric
details distinguishing the different brands, and then only to the
obsessed. The wheels are universally small and the ride no doubt
If Jute pulled his head out of his posterior and/or had any knowledge of
engineering, he would realize the reason for the wheel size.
Furthermore, Jute is wrong about the ride comfort.
That'll be experience speaking, will it? When you've actually tried the ride
on one, come back and tell us.
The lower you are on the trike, the faster you can go round corners. That's
an important feature of a high performance machine.
I read Jute's original post in full, and it is nonsense to anyone with
experience of recumbent trikes.
