ROVER COMPETITION? The Trident Spike - debut on 12.27
Is there going to be some competition in the entry level trike market? This could be interesting. I had the impression that Terratrike was selling a lot of Rovers. I bought one via Utah Trikes custom shop - the X5 mod. (Yes, while my heart is set on a Velotechnik Scorpion FS, my budget is set on Rover.)
Stay tuned... From the press release...
“December 27, 2010 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. is your date and time to meet SPIKE, an all new $999.00 powder-coated chromoly frame recumbent tadpole trike that folds. We are very honored that Trident Trikes owner and founder, Tom Flohr, chose Trike Shoppe, LLC to host the world premier of his all new Trident trike. Not only does Spike fold, but it features a high seating position, direct steering, alloy wheels, 100 PSI tires and disk brakes.
I'll be looking forward to the spec sheet and the reviews. Perhaps we can get one out here to look at. Ft. Lauderdale is over on the other side. If you're there, go take a looksee.
