Out of the dozen I see on occasion, most are old farts, but there's a few that are very fast. I rarely see them on the rural routes, especially in the hills.

It wouldn't be my choice due to their limitations. My guess is that most that ride them have some issues with their back or neck, otherwise they would be on a road bike. Possibly a very wrong assumption, but I don't really give it much thought. Just not my thing.
