  1. A very capable looking trike…! It is a very sterile looking trike as well, and I say sterile because it looks immune from any stylish curves as you would find on other trikes of the same capabilities.. Which I will take as a sign that it is all about business, and the business I would expect this trike to be in, is the business of trail riding.. And trail riding of a kind in which the terrain is of what would send most trikers running for the trails end…! I do not see it standing up to my Catrike Fat Cat Q-4…! But none the less capable …! I apologize for nothing because I believe my ride is in a class all of it’s own, But I give this manufacturer it’s do applause for a very hardy attempt at covering an area of the trike industry in which most manufacturers are following in the footsteps of ICE’s Full Fat trike…! The ICE Full Fat as most know, was originally custom designed for a trip to the earth’s southern pole by a very capable young lady who approached the makers of ICE for a custom trike in which was the ICE Full Fat custom, as we all know.. It was after ICE was inundated with requests for a Full Fat line for the open market that ICE Created the Full Fat line of trikes that we now see being reproduced by many manufacturers such as Azub and their trike the Fat – Tris..! The Catrike Q – 4 was a custom configuration of in which the likes has not been seen before it’s more than Capable creators at Utah Trikes, who custom builds trikes of the likes which no one has even dreamed as of yet, by a group of bike builders with talent of which the likes of any custom builder has never seen… I give the men and women of Utah Trikes their much do applause for their craftsmanship, and impeccable ability to please their customers who would expect nothing less.. I wish I could share my Q-4 with you so as you can appreciate the beautiful Ride that the Q- 4 is, and it’s robust look in which it backs up with it’s supreme performance, and capabilities…! I can only hope That Steve ads a venue in the near future, so as we too can share with everyone, pic’s of our many interesting trikes such as my Q – 4, and other rides that we will be seeing from those great folks from Utah, And from some of you who build your own great creations as well …! As always be careful and many great miles to you…..

    I only hope that their Trikes are better than their web site.

  3. Hey Zack,
    Provide an online address where I can access photos of your Catrike Quad so that I can put a bunch of them on Trike Asylum, under the RIDER STORIES menu. Many of the TA readers are featured there, and I would like to feature you on your own page also. Open yourself a Flickr account, upload all your Q4 photos, provide the link in a comment like this, and I’ll do the rest. Can’t wait to see your rig – I also considered one of those prior to getting Bigfoot.
