    First ride on a trike

    Well I finally got to the point where my trike was able to ride-ish. Nowhere near finished but as most on here will have discovered there is a point when it just has to be tried. The trike is still a mess at the moment. Gears are not working properly, only one front brake which is none too...

    Is this a real problem?

    I've been reading a thread on ES from a newbie trike owner which sounds a little worrying. Haven't read similar before and just wondered if the phenomenon the OP describes (and others seem to acknowledge) is worth trying to design out of a build. link...

    Views and advice sought

    Just a few jottings and looking for any views from more experienced AZ members. My aim:- I'm overweight and unfit right now and have been going down hill since retiring 3 years ago. I would like to do some gentle cycling around the local lanes here in Norfolk UK with my wife and two dogs. Maybe...
