Do any makers provide framesets as apposed to complete bikes?
Many thanks for the help,
i'm still dopey from Thanksgiving dinner, so I haven't searched either. My impression is that unless you already have a supply of tadpole trike parts sitting around, buying just the frameset is going to cost you more to put together than buying a complete trike and retrofitting your Rohloff to it.
I would talk to Utah Trikes about the customized trikes they put together. They do a lot of internal hub setups- maybe you could ship them your hub and they'd send back a trike built around it.
Comcast nuked my web page. It will return soon..
