Re: Newbie needing info on building a community bike
The only safe tricycle is the Worksman, imho.
The Sun/TedWilliams Sears $250 types (like pic 3) sit way too high off the ground, are flimsy in the frame area, tilt on turns.
While the Worksman is low to the ground, with bombproof wheels.
You can throw one off a bridge, fish it out 10 years later and apply a bit of grease, off you go.
I've built about 5 on Worksman, only one front wheel driven. The Staton set up, (pic 1) with the Subaru 35 4 cycle, is a combo that would give reliability for years and years.
