After a whole year of umm-ing and arr-ing I finally did it!

I placed an order for a Toscana 2026...

http://www.taiyingsystems.com/ty-968.php#b

Its at the 'budget conscious' end of the price range and specs, but that's OK, I have to start somewhere. Anyhow, I have a whole bunch of nice parts doing nothing so.....

Enjoy...looks like a good way to go. I don't have that style, I enjoy more long wheel base ....you got a good one too.

Hi All,
I checked out both Performer and Taiyingsystems, the stuff looks very nice. By any chance you guys have price list? I sent email requesting the info but no luck. I would really like to know how much some of the trikes they have are going for. Like Cyclaholic, I'm also 'budget conscious' . Thanks for sharing the links.

Cool-looking bike. Did you get the AL or CM frame?
