    Nice trike. I just bought a Madsen-- not as glamorous, but it'll go faster.

    Nice looking trike but it appears to be heavy. Madsen seems like a better buy for the bucket.

    I just rode the madsen home- it's definitely not light-- but I bet it's a little lighter than the trikes in the article.

    I'll throw a computer on it to keep track of mileage, but i'm interested to know what kind of speeds I'll be making dropping off the kids at day camp and such.

    +1 I have a Cateye Enduro 8 on my Schwinn Town & Country. Not necessarily to track my speed, but to keep track of mileage for maintenance and to see how far I've gone/

    But I think parents who transport their children in these contraptions on New York City streets ought to be arrested for child endangerment.
