Matt Galat’s JaYoe expedition is preparing to get back on the road, after some unexpected and unwanted delays. A new trailer, the Aidoo, is on its way, and this trailer is the neatest one I’ve ever seen, with an awesome suspension system – you can see it in Matt’s SPEZI show chapter, which is now available. If you want a trailer, and don’t mind spending some bucks, give this one a go. Be sure to see the Aidoo portion of the SPEZI movie below!
You will also notice that Matt has attached side mount bars on his new yellow Scorpion. These kits are made by Pat Franz at TerraCycle in beautiful rainy Portland, Oregon, and are just the ticket if you want to attach some gear to your trike’s seat. This is how Matt is assembling his seat-side mounting system. Check out this TerraCycle page to see detailed photos and info about this versatile mounting system, which fits darn near any trike!
Matt is taking high-visibility very seriously these days, and you can see that he started with the yellow Scorpion trike, which replaced the black one involved in the accident. Those are yellow Arkel RT-60 panniers on the rear, the same kind I will be using on my new rig. Notice the large top trunk with the gigantic red reflectors/lights, which should show up very well to motorists. Below is the German cycling show, called SPEZI:

Here is an interesting short clip, where Matt discusses the custom trailer he had built, how it failed prior to even being used, his transition to the super cool Aidoo trailer (as shown in the SPEZI video above), and how excited he is with the TerraCycle accessories from Pat Franz in Portland, Oregon. Into each life, some rain must inevitably fall – TerraCycle and Aidoo are the subsequent happy sunshine! Now, things are looking up!
