Subject: [CR]Trikes

My advice to anyone thinking of buying a trike is Don't. An old boy in my club kept on falling off his bike so he ordered a Bob Jackson OWD trike. By the time it arrived whatever was causing him to fall off his bike had gotten worse and he was dead. I bought the trike off his widow. It was fun learning to ride and I went on a couple of clubruns after it had snowed but really it was a dead loss. What was the worst feature for me was the way the saddle was always "squirming" between my legs. And with three wheels one was bound to hit each pothole. I think there are easier ways to prove that you are an eccentric, I wear one red and one blue arm warmer but I'm sure there are lots of other ways, drooling over a PX10 for instance.
