New Trike

Just added a new Tour II to the stable for the wife. She used to race back in the 80's. Kept riding after that. She has lupus which has caused her some balance issues. I took her to Colorado Springs recently to Angletech and she rode several of there trikes. Fell in love and we are having a blast once again getting our knees in the breeze.
Will post pic's soon.

I've just finished tricking out Mrs. Grouch's Greenspeed. It has an ice cream bell, cool safety flag, Rans seat bag and ultra spiffy cork handgrips. She's out riding it now.

I have a picture of it in my computer but I can't figure out how to find it. The trike looks much better with Mrs. Grouch on it anyway.

Congrats on finding the 'perfect' trike to please the one who will ride it. Was out on mine this morning for a fun downtown activities ride.

A Terratrike Cruiser has put my wife on wheels. She had other DF bikes in the past, but they ended up being sold on a garage sale.
