Saw another recumbent trike today!
I'd glimpsed this guy from a distance, but never to speak to. But today I had to take the cat to the vet this AM and so took the morning off from work. I was coming to work at about 11:30, and came around the corner and there it was, parked outside the ice cream shop. I got out of mine and looked in, and there he was getting a cup of coffee. He came out and we compared our machines. I have a Greenspeed GT-1, Series II; he had a Terra Trike, I'm not sure which model.
His had bigger wheels, and disc brakes. I have small wheels and roller brakes. He had fenders, large panniers, a computer, and an elaborate lighting system. I have no fenders (yet) small panniers, no computer, and a bare-bones lighting system.
But, as far as I know, we are the only two tricumbents in town!
