Default Re: Gearing and Fuel Economy

Welcome to the forum, Hexa. Thanks for joining us.

You're going to hear this from others so I'll be the first to tell you that trikes are inherently unstable. 35 isn't an unreasonable figure and is completely attainable with the right engine and gearing but, if you have no prior experience controlling a three wheeled machine at that speed you need to be very careful initially. They can be a hand full.

As for 50mph? You wouldn't get me to ride it at that speed. Be careful, please.
