The bike really is incredible- we had so much fun on the night ride last night, it's going to be hard to get my sweet sweet wife back on a regular bike.
The story so far.
I picked up the bike from a local bike shop last night(special ordered it- there wasn't any in oregon or washington) and rode it home by myself as it was a surprise for her(3 year anniversary present) Parked it in the driveway and brought her outside. She very much liked her present, but I had to put the xtracycle on it, so we had to wait while I got it together. Finished up just about dark, so we put 3 dual tubes of down low glow on it and hit the town.
It was quite a sight for sure - we caused an accident right off the bat which was kind of a bummer, but we quickly got over it. (Both cars passed at about 6 miles an hour to see what we were, both craning to look in their rear view mirrors and the front car slowed down a little more and got bumped- minor fender bender but still a bummer)
That was pretty much the reaction all night, except no more accidents. Every time we stopped we got bombarded with questions and everybody wanted to try it- it was our anniversary present night though so we didn't stop around people for the rest of the night
I will say this - if you are a single dude and get one of these - you can pick up all the ladies you could hope for. Girls especially loved it- my sweet sweet wife made the comment- "you are never riding this into town by yourself" haha
comfortable - especially for the rear rider. I am going to tweak the cockpit a bit more for ultimate comfort, but its pretty good right from the start.
bike cheer spreader
romantic way to hang out with significant other
The bad(not so bad)
Once I put the xtracycle kit on, it was heavy steering for sure. I quickly got used to it and it was no problem, but I won't ever be no handing it
