Downhillwuss ... a question
I hope you don't mind my dropping in with a question, even though I have a different trike. I currently have a single-speed upright Kent-Westport trike and am leaning toward purchasing a Mission Space Genie 6-spd upright. What I want to know is, what is the overall quality of the Space Genie? Is it well made? Is the folding mechanism smooth and without problems? Anything else you can share about the Space Genie?
Here in the US, not much is known about the Space Genie. But it's the only 6-spd folding that is available in either 20 or 24" tires, which is what is appealing to me. I currently "drive" a 20", but am hoping the 24" will be a smoother, more comfortable ride on the bike trails of Southern California.
Anyway, please let me know your thoughts about this bike and its manufacturing quality. It's not cheap, here in the US!
