Cool New Pike's Peak Record

FFRTrike took their recumbent trikes models 411R and 422R (later has twice the battery capacity) to run Pike's Peak Saturday 7/14. The run is about 20km with 154+ turns, many hairpin and 4700+ feet climbing - to over 14k. Their average speed was over 30 mph. They took 1st and 2nd place.

Opti Bike is a nice bike but not worth the price.
