Can a 16-inch Greenspeed be used for touring?
Okay everyone with an opinion (probably most of us, I suppose), now is the time to comment to this post and help out a fellow triker in Queensland Australia. I have received the following question from Jen Fleming, with grand plans to ride her Greenspeed quite a long distance. Her trike has 16-inch wheels, and this is where the controversy begins. Let’s help her figure this out. Below is her query:
“I have a 16″ wheel Greenspeed GT5 series 2. Trike. I am planning to ride it from one end of Queensland Australia to the other. A distance of approx 2000 km this winter. My husband and others are very skeptical about its capabilities due to its small wheels. Any experience with this please?”
Let’s all see what our combined brainpower can bring to bear on Jen’s question. I have already sent her an email with my thoughts, so now it’s your turn to sound off in the comments to this post. The comments are open for seven days, starting now, so don’t hesitate to be heard. Thanks!
By the way, if you wish to see Jen and some additional photos, and also read some of what she thinks about trike riding, under the Rider Stories menu item on this website you’ll now find her story. Click HERE to visit that page.
