The more important question is can you pop a wheelie on one?

I used to have a standard trike (it was pink), and a recumbent quadcycle. Neither one was fun to ride for more than a mile. Considering I live either 5 miles or 40 miles from any stores I generally make several stops on my one shopping day a week and there's no way I could ever fit most of the loads I carry on my bike anyway.

I used to commute to work and school when I was younger but that was in a flat area and it only took 20 minutes to cover 7 miles across town. I saved money on gas during the week so I could go to mt bike races on the weekend. It was a win-win since I stayed in shape and saved money.

Leftovers from someone else's build. I was happy to take it off their hands. Wouldn't have been what I would have spec'd, but I'll live.

It needs a good bit of re-work to make it fit, though, so the next few weeks will be dedicated to a few mods on that hub, and getting otherparts in.

I have no problem if you want to ride a bike or haul small stuff on it. What I do have a problem is with not stopping at stop signs, no regulation, and no care for any current traffic laws.

The only reason in my opinion this "works" because there is no regulation.

How is this unregulated:



Yet this is regulated:
