Massive inventory on display (97% trikes, sigh) and Mel and his spouse will treat you like ... like a potential customer should be treated.

So I guess you weren't able to ride one. Some can't. I mounted one and was able to take off on the first try. OK, second try actually. A little too much wobble on the first pedal stroke. I can't think of a reason to suggest someone not try a certain bike. I say try as many as you can before buying, Why limit yourself?
