    Well here is a pic of the bent I own but doesnt' exist yet

    Giro 26.. out of larges and won't be made till end of first quarter 08 But i'm commited to own it and already have a parking spot for it and pedals

    breaking in the pedals on my xtracycle though so I may have to get another pair. The speedplay zeros were nice for long rides but the cleats got eaten up too quickly to be affordable from all the commuting.

    Does she have any trouble cornering (quickly) with that design? I've read they can be less stable at high speeds. I've looked at tadpole trikes. It seems like a bent of 2 or 3 wheel design could be more comfortable for those of us with larger statures.

    Peace,
    Steve

    Steve, if you're asking me......

    Yes, you can dump a Delta over easier than a Tadpole. The wife has dropped hills at 40 MPH on it though and while it requires a very light touch on the steering, she has a blast! Riding flat ground, or uphill, it's very unlikely that you would get enough speed to worry about dumping. She cruises at about 12-14 mph riding with a touring load on flat ground. The EZ-3 isn't a race trike, by any measure....it's just comfortable.

    Also, she had just climbed a hill and was catching a breather.....it was HOT that day!
