Yes, I'm very interested in trikes to the point I own a Worksman PAV
trike for personal use. I get a LOT of questions from folk's both young
and old about where to buy, cost etc. which I answer by sending them
to the Worksman website.

There is an interest in the 3 wheelers but for the most part
most folks in the America relegate the trike to the toy or old/disabled
market in favor of fancy 2 wheelers. This is a shame due to the fact
that 3 wheelers can be a ton of fun to ride for "normal" people to.
In Europe they race 3 wheelers!!!!!!!!!

It's like anything else.......no press....no interest. This is not so in Europe
or the rest of the world!!!

Trike Forum

I would like to see a trike forum. I would like to see a "Worksman PAV' forum.

I think they fit pretty well into the Recumbent forum.

Some trikes are recumbent but the most common styles aren't.

So would I but IMO there's not enough cyclist out there that have PAV's to support a PAV forum.

I don't really think there's enough demand for it. Recumbent trikes fit very well into the recumbent forum, which is not just bursting with business anyway. My Worksman Front-loading trike fits into the Utility forum. That leaves a few in-between items like the PAV, and leaves the adult upright trikes, and neither of those generate a whole lot of posts.
