trying o decide on a new TRIKe maybe Pacific ?
Im in the market for a new wheels. A TRike this time. as I'm getting older I'm less stable on my little Sun bike .a folding unit. I like it for it lightweight and fold ability when shopping.
I do all of my bicycle riding for errands. As I dont need the exercise. Most jaunts are to the grocery under a mile a way or to mailbox etc. Occ will take the bus like to Dr appointment downtown. Will put Sun bike on the bus bike front rack. It holds two bikes. If bike rack full have folded up quickly and took on bus.
I occasionally get out my older 26 inch regular bike and trailer , and old Bugger . I bought prob over 30 years ago used. to hail like stuff I find in neighborhood from junk pickup or occ firewood from neighborhood curbs.
Checked out a used but excellent condition 1980s trike yesterday. It was nice. But hand brake and single speed. testing ride it on the owners street was easy downhill but back to his house , more work on the bit of hill.
Do any of you all think I could convert my Giant Revive a semi recumbent into a TRIKE. I saw on utube a conversion unit It would cost around $400 for just the part. Plus gentlemen said my Revive had too many Gears.
thinking strongly about the Pacific Carry All or the Workman PAV3 the Mission folding trike looks good but expensive Like those cause they dont seem to sit too high like a regular trike. Local dealers only have Schwinn, SUN EZ 3 . TrEK Pure ,but no other trikes in stock
any input PLEASE
