Looking at the pics, I realized this thing has all the bells and whistles, can you give me a quick and dirty rundown of the tech specs and custom made features that you added to the standard trike model. I'm really impressed, this thing had it all.
Also, do these trikes fit into the rear storage cavity of a Cessna 172? I know you sell to pilots, so maybe you could design one that folds? The reason I am asking is because the wright of this thing suprised me 60lbs for all those features, damn!
How fast can you still have a comfortable pedal input ?
Any thoughts on a motor/drive for Tommy and the 2 passenger trike ??

How much reduction (first stage and second stage)?recumpence wrote:CT700--- Two stages to the wheel.
Thanks! Please let us know how the belt holds up.recumpence wrote:First stage--- 4 to 1.
Second stage--- 3.5 to 1.

Have you given some though to somthing akin to a throttle lock out with a cadence sensor on either the crank or the wheel (or an idler, etc)... so a minimum speed would need to be reached before the throttle would engage?
Would eliminate the need to explain "Pedal First" and it would likely be a crudload simpler to engineer than a slipper clutch - simply interrupt the throttle return line or hold it to ground.
