Schwinn Meridian : the Ultimate Cruiser

This is my wonderful Schwinn Meridian Trike Cruiser that I have fitted with a Sturmey Archer 5-spd Hub and a Dillenger electric front wheel. It takes me everywhere, in style, comfort and safety, and can be driven (ridden?) on the road, on the sidewalk and on designated bicycle pathways, or, when I feel energetic and adventurous, over rough terrain aided by the chunky mountain bike tyres. An added advantage is that I can carry the week's shopping, a dog, or anything else in the basket at the back. Highly recommended, especially for those with a slight balance problem as it does not fall over when stationary. Coool hu! (PS: My attempt at uploading the picture failed. Sorry. Will try again)

This sounds like what I was going to do with my Meridian. Would love to see the picture. Try using the attachment feature.

Regrettably 'upload' of file failed! Any tricks I might try?

You have to have posted 10 times on this forum before you can post pictures. Only 7 to go. It stops some of the spam. Roger

Ah, I see where the problem lies. Could have saved myself a lot of frustration if I had known that weird rule.

Nothing to see here. I am posting this 'post' simply to get my 'score' up to ten. How many is that now?

Read your name title in the upper left hand corner of your post and it will tell you. You are at 7 now. Please DO NOT QUOTE me as it generated and email. I get enough spam as it is. Roger

He/she is getting an error message as well,...as photo's that are too large fail to upload.

Besides, keep having him post and he's good to go! Over, Roger, Ugh, OverEasy!!!

I really would like to post the photo of my Schwinn Meridian Cruiser Trike. As this is post number 10, I might now be able to do so. Watch this space.

Did you click on the Advanced square on your post and then use Manage Attachments button? Did you have your photos on the desk top? I am a computer dumb head and I can do it? That is all I can do to help? Roger
