    Somewhat dependent on the trike. I could see it with a Windcheetah or VTX- no way on a Terratrike. Even with a fast trike it'd be well over 250W.

    If you have knee problems, Speedplays are a necessity. I'll put up with the maintenance to keep the knee pain away.

    Thanks for the link to the covers!

    You may want to try raising the bars to take a some weight off your hands first. Is the pain at the heel of your thumb or the middle joint? If the latter you may be gripping the bars roo hard.

    FLO wheels (what he pictured) are carbon fairing on an Al rim. about $500/wheel. (probably the best deal going in aero wheels). If you consistently cruise at over 20 mph, they're a wonder.

    Lane position takes care of most of that, even for lowracers or trikes. IMO folks backing out of driveways for example may not see you - flag or not.

    Beat me to it. About the price of a good used car will get you a car replacement. The upside is in fuel costs.

    You can do a pretty long commute in a velomobile.

    Usually you'd be using a neckrest if you're laid back. If you want to sit upright, how about a P-38? That'll give you a boost over a Rocket.
