I have a 2005 Catrike Road, which uses indirect steering. I've riden many trikes (WizWheelz, Ice, Catrike, Greenspeed), some with indirect, some with direct. First they all steered very well and I found no problems with any of them. Catrike is now using only direct steering which mounts the handlebars directly on the kingpins of each wheel with a tie-rod connecting the two wheels. Provides very good steering, you get lots of road feedback thru the handlebars. Indirect basicly has a center pivot on the frame for the handlebar to mount on and then two tie-rods, one to each wheel. Again, very good steering on all the trikes I've riden. I have read were some trikes from a number of years ago have some issue with steering at highter speeds, but now I think the type of steering really is a non-issue. I think how the trike fits you, seat comfort, adjustability, are bigger issues.
