Thanks for sharing. This begs the question - are/were there any fixed-geared trikes? (I'm trying to imagine going through turns like shown in your video while pedalling... OTOH, riding backwards would be much easier)

Also I wonder, in your experience, are you going faster, slower or the same when riding a trike as opposed to when riding a bike?
