Now that I am an AARP member, I realize that in a decade or two, I may be wanting a bike that is more stable, harder to crash (or at least, more pleasant to crash) It occurs to me that a three wheel 'bent might be just the ticket. My last bike, as I ride off to the "Old Folks Home".
Of the three wheel 'bents in current production, which are the most affordable models? And, what do you give up with a cheaper model, versus the more expensive models?
Obviously, the "three wheel" design has advantages while stopped at a red light. But, when riding at full speed, is a three wheel 'bent less likely to crash than a two wheel 'bent? My typical "crash" on a road bike have occured when I am daydreaming, and "sideswipe" a curb, or the front wheel catches a separation in the concrete. Is a three wheeler less likely to "flip over" than a two wheeler under those conditions?
