    Rhoades Car

    I have read a bit about the Rhoades Car recently. It sounds like a viable source of transportation. They say it is street legal; not that legal means safe.

    Has anyone had any experience with said vehicle?

    The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".

    dirtsqueezer,

    You just like the optional fuel tank in the middle to run your engine!
    Recumbents rock!

    Man, I would try anything just for the fun of it. I don't care what people think about me pedalling down Main Street in a Rhoades Car. I might enjoy the attention as much as the fun.

    For now, I have to restrict my cash outflow to more immediately practical things (like stuff for my bike.)

    Did you notice, they mentioned the Rhoades Car was like a recumbent in some ways? Everyone should try a recumbent once. (I'm going to get the best recumbent I possibly can, someday!)

    Yeh, it might be faster if everyone pedalled.
