    Variations on human-electric tris, quads, velomobiles...

    Another recent thread brought up quads, and a Greenspeed model was pictured. Why not an electric-assist quad?

    Lots of info are on velomobiling.net or velomobiling.com , I saw an article about the VM market 2007 there I think. Probably cover Greenspeeds quad and several electric assist velomobiles.
