Well, I bought new yesterday.. I couldn't find any used tadpole trikes after 2 years of looking. I found a used one that they had, but it didn't turn out to be the model I liked the best so I bought new. I spent about 5 hours testing riding before the purchase, trying a bunch of models with different features. Might I want a different one in a year? It's possible.

With regard to USS or OSS, the ladies test riding with me preferred the USS. On the tadpoles, it's no choice.
