Does anyone else out there have a Catrike Speed?

I've had my Catrike Speed now for almost three months now and I just love it, is there anyone else out there that has one?

I just made a road trip to a bike shop a few hours away to look at a Catrike Speed. Nice trike. A budy of mine was frothing at the mouth but didn't buy. I'm afraid he'll be sorry.

It's quick, responsive, handles well, comfortable.

I'll be looking at a Catrike on Thursday in Carmel, Indiana. The bike store there has one listed at $2195. I test drove a Terra Trike this past Thursday at the factory in Hastings, Michigan. I also plan on going to Highland, Illinois to look at the Trimuter. A couple of months ago I built my own recumbent trike out of 3 junk 20" bicycles, $50 and 40 hours labor. Rear wheel is 26", two front wheels are 20", right now it's a 12 speed - pretty cool! You can see it at:

Nice looking trike, you did a good job. When I bought my Catrike Speed they listed for $1995. I paid extra for the head rest. Did you mean the Wizwheelz trike? That's a really nice trike, especially for the money.
