I'd rather have a tadpole because I've ridden trikes of both orientations and tadpoles are just more stable and predictable. :wink:

The foam aspect of the Spira4u is definitely neat.

I doubt anyone can make a case to the contrary. Tadpoles are pretty much as stable as four-wheelers of equal track and wheelbase. Deltas, not so much.

Delta trikes are great for going slow and easy, and for carrying lots of stuff for their size.
This is to express my gratitude to Justin of Grin Technologies for his extraordinary measures to save this forum for the benefit of all.

Very cool. Isnt it better to have 2 wheels up front and 1 wheel in the back, like the mass produced by ?Kawasaki? North America crotch rocket trike?

Mm...you might read the discussion from just before your post, back to somewhere around the second post in the thread. :|

I guess this is the "tadpole" conversation.
Now I know what tadpole means!

Now just apply grease to the exterior and it will squirt away from a collision like a bar of soap. :lol:

I want to know if you get into an accident, are those air cores toast and done for, just glue a replacement piece back on?

Bummer, I think we lost the Spira4u guy who posted a few days ago. I don't see his post or username in the member list. I bet it was the 'bar of soap' comment. :(
