Rungu sells a confused tricycle

Tricycles for grownups have been around as long as the bicycle has. And while they are seen less often than bicycles, they do have their merits. They may be appropriate for those who need a more stable ride, or who want a wide platform for hauling gear, or for women or Scotsmen who ride wearing skirts.

So if you meet any part of that description, go ahead and buy a trike.

That’s right, upright posture, fat tires, and two wheels in front. Not in the back, where the weight is, but in the front. They argue this is better for riding on sand, and they sell a special model with extra-fat tires if that’s your dream.

Just $2600?!? I'll take two.

    I agree, this thing looks like it would be quite difficult to ride. Maybe if they slapped on a motor it would be easier? Then a couple of more wheels.
