Default Recumbent trike


A recumbent trike has just gone past my window (front of physics building,
Durham uni) Delta formation and low.

Shall we have a new collective noun for recumbents - a squadron?


For a mix of delta and tadpole trikes properly arranged for compactness
I'd suggest 'a tessellation of trikes.'

Cue Dambusters March.
"OK chaps - assume delta formation for low level"
"Roger, wilco"


Sorry, feeling silly today.

Correct. Back at Larrington Towers is my "Vulture Squadron On Tour In
Germany" T-shaped shirt, dating from shortly after the 1992 European HPV
Championships, when we were fed almost exclusively on horrible cheese.
Imagine, flogging all the way down to Munich and not even /seeing/ a
sausage! Bah!

On the plus side, if'n you needed to run up the occasional spare part, at
least you had the raw materials to hand...
