Aerotrike

See the awesome and amazing Aerotrike in action at the Stanford Oval during the 2008 Amgen Tour of California (as previously featured in How to Avoid… etc.)


I love this thread at BikeForums, in which UD claims to have “smoked a commuter on her trike:

So there I was just enjoying my ride on my kids tricycle from Wall Mart with pink streamers, when I saw this dude up the road. I decided to pedal a bit harder, and before I knew it passed him like he was standing still. Oh sure poor ******* tried to keep up on his fancy shmancy hybrid with those “panniers’, but he was no match for me on my tricycle. It looked like he was on Gary Fisher Nirvanna, loaded down with fenders, panniers, handlebar bag, and generator hub light that was on ([for his] … daylight running light). I sure showed him. I had to turn off on next street because I was only riding a block, but I completely owned that commuter!

  1. Looks like hard work to get any speed. I understand now why Penny-Farthings had such big wheels!

  5. Dude, that awesome bigwheel that Yakima had at Interbike (with the 36" front wheel) would have owned anyone…
