These Trikes have me sort of curious. I'm wondering if an inboard drum or disc brake would be feasible. I think all the trikes old or new I've seen(admitedly not a lot) have equal wheel sizes. I'm wondering if there's any performance to be gained by going with small wheels in back (26" or 24"), maybe it was tried and didn't work out. Seems like a consideration for smaller frame sizes. Shouldn't two real light wheels be able to support even a heavy rider?
