“When I first saw those words, I thought to myself, it must be a bicycling version of “Ghost Rider”, with Nicolas Cage in flames, a rictus grin shining out of the fire. And while I do think this would make a nice movie (not to mention a t-shirt and hat), it’s not at all what Atomic Zombie is all about.”
“Hi! I am Pihokker Gábor from Hungary. With the this year’s spring I was building a Viking Tandem Trike. I increased the size of the rear wheel and I made changes in the folding because I would have liked it, if my wife who travels at the back separately can select the suitable transmission what is comfortable for her.
I prepared a trailer because of the right placement of the packets. We arrived on the past week from an European tour with the bicycle what was beginning in Germany in Passau and onto Hungary kept until Győr where I live, the full distance 511 Km. Despite the flat tyres, we did not have any other trouble. Best regards, Gábor.”
“Hi! I’m a newbie here. I’m from Mindanao the southernmost island of the Philippines and a mountain bike fanatic for many years now. But age is catching up and trikes are becoming much more inviting as time passes by.
From where I am I’ve seen just every kind of bikes from cargo/passenger carrying BMX with side car monstrosities, choppers, trick bikes, to carbon fiber road and mountain bikes but I’ve never seen a tadpole trike. So, I made it my mission to build a trike .”
“I met a gentleman on the Polk City bike trail on Saturday that was riding an AZ Trike he had built it was beautiful made mine look bad. He said he had also built a Warrior, but he is older and he said he only rode it about 1000 miles before he decided to build the one he is riding now.
The one in the picture below is the outcome of about 6 months work in my spare time and rides very nice. I have put about 100 miles on it in the last few weeks trying to work the bugs out of it, it is coming along nicely. Thanks, Walter.”
Wow – what a beauty, Walter. You must be so proud of yourself!
