The Crossbow concept is a recumbent trike powered by two front electric motors, front shock absorbers and an Omni wheel as a rear wheel. The Omni allows the driver to steer in close angle and drift along the curves for an extreme fun driving experience.
That's an amazing creation. I love that jumbo bamboo down tube and the bamboo spokes!Voltron wrote:Calfee "Flinststone" woodie with BBSHD... sweet chainstays and spoked wheels.

They used to put the electrical charge directly to one leg at a time. Worked well no matter how tired you got.
I guess that depends....
