Recumbent Pedicabs in NYC
It seems the upright rickshaw/trikes we've had here for the past few years are being replaced by these:
They're all over the place! I picked up the front end on one. They're lighter than you'd think. The have an electric assist motor in the front hub, and a fully functional differential on the rear axle. I don't suppose I'd want to go cross country with one, but they do look like they'd be a viable replacement for taking the car on errands to the market, etc.
