    Yeah, Rotos are more durable. A guy going across Australia hit a roo with his. Punched the dent back out and kept going. They're really not all that heavy, either - well within the 'normal' range. I...

    I think the only foam you'll find in them is whatever they're using in the sandwich structure of the shells, if any.

    I guess I just don't get them. The Baja bike has a frame piece in front of the rider's head. Like that wouldn't be distracting. The truck goes "50 mph" which makes it a motorcycle not a bicycle. The...

    Used is always cheaper than new. Recycled Recumbents is inexpensive because what you get is a Tour-Easy clone made from cut-up remnants of upright bikes. They're functional, and a good choice if...

    Lessee... my $12 pair of wraparounds lasted 3 years before the temple piece broke while I was attaching my mirror. If I bought a $300 pair of Oakleys, they'd have to last me 75 years before I broke...

    When I say "slow" I mean that a new trike rider can expect to lose at least 3 mph compared to any other platform.

    They do that in AussieLand. They have velo races where rollbars are required. You're certainly *more* protected than you'd be on a regular bike or trike. The body represents a rather expensive...

    When Safety Bike riders use the term, "climbing well," what they're trying to define is whether or not their friends will drop them to death on every positive grade. By that criteria, trikes DO NOT...

    I've done the same thing in the past. To ride to work, I'd have to get past a couple of very dangerous (even for cars) intersections. I prefer to drive and park at a community center, then ride the...

    Another vote for a crank-forward bike. RANS is the premier builder of crank-forwards, but there are many cheaper imitators out there.

    Also, another agreement on not riding against traffic. That is...

    In the case of a 2-wheeler; to be streetable it'll have either landing gear or foot/arm holes. Virtually all commercial velomobile offerings are 3-wheeled, in which case balance takes care of itself....

    More importantly, it would have a warranty. You don't know the history of the Trek, and a carbon bike could have damage that's invisible now but can cause the frame to fail later.

    Not sure what you mean by that. Trikes have seats. If you add a full body, it's called a Velomobile. My buddy has done 28.5 mph average for a century in his Quest velomobile. That's a hundred miles...

    I don't know much about trikes, but I know that some of them have bushings instead of bearing-type headsets, and that bushings can get worn. Does yours have bushings or bearings?
