    You may ask, @Holly, but you won't get an answer from me.

    I'm not being hard-headed, it's just something that I couldn't live with.

    Yup, probably bad spelling. Someone wrote about riding a to wheeler in a three wheeler thread.

    Just kidding you a little @Hal Pollner.
    Everyone has joined forums and then opted out at some point and we all have our reasons for doing so.
    I think though, you may have set a record.
    12 minutes between your joined post and your quit post is a hard one to beat! :)

    I just upgraded my trike with a set of fatter tires....2.125" instead of 1.5".

    It corrected my trip computer error from 5% to 1%, and they rider a little softer, with 30 PSI instead of 50 PSI.

    The last time I had a Trike was when I was 3 years old, in 1939.

    Now here I am on a Trike, 80 years later!

    To Shirley and Bill:

    That is a SUN E-Z-Tri Classic Recumbent Trike.

    It has a 16" front wheel and 20" rear wheels.

    They list for $1100-$1200, but I got mine for $1000 and upgraded the tires to a slightly fatter size, giving a slightly softer ride.

    I also installed a resettable Trip Computer that records the mileage of individual trips, the current speed in MPH or KPH, the highest speed reached on a trip, and the average speed on a trip. It also has an Odometer that records the total accummulated mileage since you owned the trike, and a digital clock in 12 or 24-hour format.

    The seat is adjustable fore-and-aft, and the seat back can be set for different degrees of tilt. The chain-and-sprocket transmission has 21 speeds, with 3 ranges of 7 speeds each, with handlebar shifters. It has rear disc brakes and a caliper front brake.

    It's the most comfortable way to pedal yourself there is!
    I hope you get one!

    @Hal Pollner , I'm just a poor country girl. I can't afford one, How about if you use some of all that extra money you have lying around and buy one and send it to me. :D

    I'll do it if you can pay the shipping cost of the trike plus packaging weight over 3000 miles...

    The price I paid is an entry-level price for a recumbent. They can run over $3000!

    So you see...I'M the cheapie, buying a budget-priced trike!
