    Lightfoot cycles

    Hi everyone I'm new to the forums and was looking for some information

    I'm looking at a Lightfoot Roadrunner Magnum trike , due to my 450lbs. i need a recumbent that will take the weight. I would appreciate any suggestions, or opinions on a trike for someone my size.

    Thanks

    Here's a link to rollerdave's post about his Magnum's arrival:
    The Eagle Has Landed! (Rollerdave Trike Arrival)
    He's also got some other threads with pictures in them; search for rollerdavem and they'll be in there. He generally posts in the Clydesdale/Athena forum, and he's since switched from the Magnum to an upright, I believe.

    As far as other possibilities go, I've got a Sun EZ-Tad SX (rated for 300 lbs) and was around 435 lbs when I started riding it; I've got 1300+ miles on it and the only problem I had was frequent flats on the rear; changing to 100 psi tires and a thorn-proof tube fixed that.

    Lanzo I ride a Lightfoot Ranger and my son has a World Traveler. I love both of the bikes. The comfort and feel of the bikes cannot be beat. Rod does very good work in design and build. I want to get a faster bike and will consider a new Lightfoot or a Rans Stratus. I feel they are in the same catagory. Best of the best.
