    Bikeman58 says in his post it's a 9, not an 8. (I haven't seen a picture or the bike, so I don't know).

    It sounds like you're suggesting he bought them used (did he)? What behavior are you trying...

    On my FSA triple, I swapped out the 30 t granny for a 24 t. A bit tougher to tune, but a lot better low range.

    The 12 speed cassettes aren't designed for use with triples, but rather doubles.

    And it isn't a question of how many speeds, it's a question of total gear range and how close are they spaced.

    I agree. I do agree with smallwheeler that it's likely whomever designed the Genesis had seen the Dahon. But there really are only so many ways to make folding bikes.

    I have a friend who has one who really likes her Townie. Many people ride crank forward bikes and like them a lot.

    What I don't have a good answer for is if they'll help your knee issues. REI...

    I don't see how you're going to secure the car seat well, so this at worst makes it more dangerous.

    At best, they'll lose a lot of the suspension from the fabric seat, so you'll make the ride...

    After a bike accident, I bought a tadpole trike for my wife. It is an absolute blast to ride (imagine crossing a bike with a go cart). They're so much fun, I'm not sure they're legal in all 50...

    You don't say what your terrain looks like, or what speeds you're taking about, but for those differences, it sounds like either you have really quite bad tires on the trike or something is rubbing.

    That's almost always a good tradeoff, except for very steep routes (ask anyone who owns a velomobile or F40).

    Light weight isn't as important as aerodynamic for high speed, nor as important as good rolling resistant tires at low speeds. Remember as far as weight goes it's the total weight (bike + rider +...

    For me, it wasn't flat bars, but a much higher bar that helped. The suggestion for bar ends is very good. I found that gloves with very thick gel helped as well.

    And this was one of the reasons I...

    The base rover is a very reasonably priced trike (well, for a trike at least) and is an 8 speed. That will be perfect for a track, but for hills, I'm a bit worried that it isn't geared low enough.

    I find you don't want too low a gear as you can't get enough momentum off of a single stroke. (My low gear is under 17”).

    The more aerodynamic the bent, the worse the yoyo effect is. You can get bents that climb well, but you'll still blow the doors off during the descents.
