Persevere as a lot of people say they find them hard at first, mine is a trike with a mbb/fwd but with alot of the strength of the pedal steer designed out, and lots of ugly built in.
Ugly is the new beauty...
Do you have any pics of the trike as I have been seroiously considering axing the arse end off the bike and making it into a delta trike.
This whole experiment was built around the idea that by utilising the fwd configuration it would be possible to build a modular bike... ie... you could have a bolt on rear for a bike, a trike and even a tandem (by building the rear tandem section with a conventional rwd you woul in effect have independant pedaling and gearing).
It should also be possible to build a delta trike tandem although this isn't something I had really considered tryin, just yet anyhow.
I realise that this would definately not be a set up for the weight weenies but I find that it's great to have access to my tandem and other bikes but it would be better if I didn't have so many bikes to store.
Any how back to the main thing, if you have any pics of your trike I'd love to see them.
