Tricycle in winter?
I found an old Worksman Delta Trike on ebay. It is old and rusty.
I plan to use it this winter in CHicago. I found a site that stocks Innova's 20 studded tires, so I will put studs atleast on the brake wheel/drive wheel.
I plan to have it painted in the spring.
What do you think?
Rock on dude.
Put chains AND studded tires on and you will roll through anything.
Skip the paint job! This trike has 'character!'
It's perfect the way it is.
and the best thing is i don't have to worry about falling
....and it's got a bumper on the front!Cool.I just hope you don't have issues with the width.Might limit where you can go.
well here in chicago i think i will be okay. I think it will cost me more to ship it than I will be paying for it because of its size
Also this thing is rated to carry like 500 pounds which is 5 times what my bike trailer carries
My girlfriend has a Worksman folding trike and as long as she can fit the handlebars through a space the rear wheels will clear, the only thing she can't use is any kind of single track path.
Please be aware that all Worksman trikes drive the right rear wheel
NOT both rear wheels. Other than that a trike will do Ok in winter
as long as you can get traction. Skip the chains,mate. They are
more trouble on this trike than they're worth...I know.
RIght, thats what the owner told be. it has coaster brakes too but only on the right side. On Ice? In Chicago? Stoplights every quarter mile. I just don't want to end up stuck on an ice patch with cars honking at me. ANd a 1wd trike i would think would need more traction than a 1wd bicycle on ice because more rolling resitance, more snow to plow through, and more overall weight. But I wasn't using chains anyway.
