    best recumbent trikes for huge guys

    I have owned an EZ-tadpole, and it held me. I am 6'8"ish and 400 lbs. I sold the trike, but I've found (the hard way through road rash) that this nearly 60 yr. old really needs a trike to be safe and enjoy riding again. 2-wheeled recumbents are too unstable for me. Could any of my "fellow" Clydesdales who own or have owned a trike that fit a very tall, very heavy person reasonable well? I might just go back to the EZ-(sun)-tadpole, but they're not terribly nimble and weigh almost as much as I (well, not quite, but....) So, please, any comments on trikes for huge guys would be most welcome.

    Look at Worksman.com. You will need the extended version.

    Depends on your budget. I'd look at a Greenspeed Expedition Trike if I had the budget. It's a tadpole design. and pricey, but well worth it.

    Another might be the Lightfoot Trikes.

    To continue, the Worksman would be a step backward from the Sun EZ3, by the way.
