I hang out in the Commuting and Long Distance forums, mostly. I'm thinking about getting my Mom a recumbent trike for her 76th birthday. Although she taught *me* how to ride a bike about 45 years ago, no one ever returned the favor for her.
Out there in fleabay land I found the Triton Pro, and then found their home on the web
Has anyone out there ever seen one of these? $400 is sure do-able, especially if I can get my siblings to kick in. I see it's a single speed, and that's probably my biggest concern. They are in Fort Collins, Co--pretty flat, especially where I think Mom and Dad will be riding (Dad's already got a used e-bike recumbent all lined up) but I'd don't want her to have to get off and push the thing, either.
If this is a real piece o' junk, I'll keep looking, but if anyone can point me in the direction of a good, relatively inexpensive trike I'd sure appreciate it.
