  1. This design has been around for some time, but for what I expect was tooling and overall cost material prohibitive, Nothing came of it…! What is it your trying to say here Steve, other than another very beautiful design that was drawn up on some computer CAD program.. It’s just another dead horse… I have thought for a long time now we would see more progress in the field of Velos with streamlined fairings, integrated storage compartments, and lights to be the ticket in the near future… Now with the new E-bike craze combining the Velo, beautifully painted fairings, integrated lighting, and all the other creature comforts wanted, and needed is a natural inspiration for future cyclists and commuters alike… As we see fuel resources start to dwindle further into decline, and the new light weight batteries take more foot hold into the normal day to day, I suspect that I am not far off from my predictions … But as for this design, forget about it, it’s a dead horse as I have said….!
    Fair weather, and good trails my Hobo friend…..!

    We are fortunate indeed to live in a time where the visions of one creative designer can be brought to life through computer design. Just as Da Vinci’s designs were laughed at & ridiculed & then later found to have genius behind them so are present day creations looked at as flights of fancy. Several recent trike designs have broken the established design parameters such as the Edge e2, Innesenti, Leuci, Slyway, Azub’s Ti-fly & of course the recent incarnation of Fat Trikes. I say bring it on! The more radical the design, the more likely we are to see Aerospace & Formula 1 engineering in production models. I just hope they don’t get price tags to match.
