My wife says she may be open to a trike. The one that Im looking at is the Terratrike since the seat can be moved and reclined so the both of us can use it.

you mentioned the kmx tornado. Im still learning alot about that trike. i got mine off craigslist for 300 bucks. a hell of a steal i now realize. so far it's been great, naturally i can't leave it stock so i've got another thread in here where im trying to customize it some to suit me better.

I'll probably be pulling the trigger on a new trike soon myself. Agree strongly that you have to ride them. I rode several different models, all from Catrike, and was surprised at how different they felt. Although I really wanted to love the 700, I think I'll be getting a Speed.

layedback1: you know that with Terras, the seat only provides limited adjustment, and you may need to replace the boom if you and your wife are significantly different in height, right?

There is a new trike that is just now coming out on the market, the Trident. Utah trikes has an excellent review of the Stowaway models. Definitely worth a look if anyone is considering a new trike. I ride a Catrike, and love it, but if I were looking to buy right now, the Trident Stowaway 2 would be very high on my list.

Challenge trikes

Look at the Challenge Concept or the folding models.
You can find videos on youtube of guys riding them on just two wheels, which says a lot for the frames and the handling.
They cost more to make and buy. Maybe a used one.
See for sale ads on bentrideronline.com etc.

Yeah! Trikes are awesome! I ride a QNT myself. I am really lusting over the new ICE line that has full suspension. They are very dreamy.



Good choice on a trike - you are truly advanced since trikes are the vehicles of the future!
