    I will commuting in the below. This will be warmer due to protection from the elements, less maintance due to a full enclosed drive train, and generally more safety due to three wheels instead of two.

    Hey TC, I've got three wheels for winter too (tadpole, 2 wheels front) but no fairing. I did get the oportunity this summer to ride a Cab-Bike (a friend here in Minneapolis has three of them) and a Alleweder (David from Texas brought it up for a weekend). That was a hoot! It would really be nice to have something like that for our winters up here.

    What is that fairing around the 'bent made out of? aluminum, fiber glass, CF? Do they use a standard off-the-shelf trike for the innards? Looks cool..

    I have conversed with Mary about the Cab-Bikes and David E. from Texas. My friend Ethan Davis has an AW and travels down to Texas from time to time to help David get up and running to make the AWs here in the US.

    The body is a glass fiber/epoxy with aluminum sub frame. It uses a standard drive train. You can read all about it by going to the web page shown in my signature.

    I don't think I would do much differently this winter than I did last - I worked out most of the "bugs" last winter. I don't have studded tires and I'm not 100% sure whether I'll get them or not but I think that would really be the only change I might make.
