It depends on which way the wind is blowing. 15 mph headwind and I ride about 7 mph. 15 mph tailwind and I'm at 14 mph. Single speed beach cruiser.

Coaster Brakes on trike?

I've noticed a number of adult trikes have a coaster brake that only operates on one of the back wheels. Doesn't this cause the trike to make a sudden turn when the brake is applied?
