  1. Very radical design.. Simple in configuration, with a lot of attention to production cost and manufacturing.. Over all if it were an American designer, and the big IF, If only I had the money I would invest in this company, because of it’s simplicity of it’s design… Ya got to look at it this way break down the trike and what do you have a single main tube with some factory stamped steel being used instead of a front axial for steering and some also factory stamped steel wheel mounts which completes the front end more or less. Then a borrowed tiler arm for steering..! Now the rear end of it has even less which is more for the manufacturing over all a great plus because of it’s simplicity, makes the cost of it and it’s components easy to assemble and the completion of the trike.. Last only the cosmetic’s by means of powder coat.. All in all, every thing else is shelf items and promotion of the product, and you have a great little investment, with a lot of potential… I love it…! As I said the big word in the beginning, ” IF ” I had the money…! Other then all that, It’s a nice trike.. I didn’t see any price’s on their web page, are they still doing R & D..? Also what’s your take on it Steve…?

  2. I like it Zack. Clearly, it is on the leading edge of trike design, with simplicity being one of its initial calling cards. If I come across specifics of the trikes that I can understand, I’ll pass them along. Likewise, if anyone has a link to more info, leave it as a comment.

  3. There are prices – you’ve got a calculator and you can put the parts you like together…my prefered one would be 4400,- ;-)

  4. $4400 seems reasonable for a trike that appears to be very well designed and constructed. Their designs are really quite unique in the world of trikes, reminding me of the Windcheetah in some ways. If you get one, let us know your impressions!

  5. You left out the most interesting parts of the Velomo HiTrikes. Weight (Windcheetah territory), material (CroMo steel) and full suspension! Since I’ve broke three aluminium rear frames of my British premium trike already, an all steel frame sounds awfully good to me. (I’ve always got replacements from ICE by FedEx at no cost, but its unfortunate non the less)

    Check this one out for instance: http://www.velomobilforum.de/forum/index.php?threads/hitrike-gt-11-2kg.41217
    A full suspension HiTrike GTi, 20″ wheels, 11.2kg.
