    Here in CA people still look at my trike as though it's an alien ship. When parked, a lot of people have gotten the front and rear mixed up... LOL
    BTW, I use my trike as transportation. Walking is difficult and riding in motor vehicles (especially buses) is generally out because of a vestibular disorder (chronic imbalance and dizziness).
    What do you call a cyclist who sells potpourri on the road? A pedaling petal-peddler.

    Too many to list, some I built myself including the frame. I "do" ~ Human-Only-Pedal-Powered-Cycles, Human-Electric-Hybrid-Cycles, Human-IC-Hybrid-Cycles, and one Human-IC-Electric-3way-Hybrid-Cycle

    I have absolutely no problem with an upright or only slightly reclined tadpole trike. I've built a few and they are very stable and excellent machines better suited for some uses then a regular bicycle.

    That said you will never catch me riding on the road where there is even the possibility of a car or two on the road at the same time in one of those "Big-Mack height between your butt and the road" low slung trike things. I have no intentions of being that low where I can't see or be seen and getting squashed like a bug by a car ~ thank you very much. On a paved trail out in the middle of know-where where I could actually crank it up to speed without worrying about getting squashed myself or not seeing someone else in time to avoid hitting them, sure I wouldn't hesitate and would probably be a cool ride.

    I'm also not a huge fan of upright delta's, very unstable, the exact opposite of an upright tadpole in my experience.
