I’ve been riding a trike since november 2016 now. And as with most of the bikes I have or had, it’s been gradually modified to my needs and wants.

Although a recumbent trike is very comfortable and stable to ride, it holds one risk of injury, namely “leg suck”, when your foot slips from the pedal while riding and gets underneath your trike. This can result in serious injuries.
A lot of trikes are equipped with toeclips, replaced by clipless pedals by many riders. Even with toeclips there’s always the danger of your foot slipping of the pedal while riding over a bump or puthole, etc… But clipless pedals aren’t really my thing. When my legs are ready, I want to go commuting on my trike, wearing my workboots. And my workboots don’t hold cleats. In fact, I want to be able to go out riding whatever shoes I’m wearing.4 Comments
One of the first additions to my new trike are 2 headlights. At first I was wondering about choosing battery powered lights or headlights for a hub generator. But on my other bikes I have Busch & Muller headlights on a dynamo hub and I very much like the amount of light and the dispersion of the light. So I went for the same headlights on my trike, but this time powered by a usb powerbank.One Comment
