I wonder how Mr. Giraldo or Don Saito would have faired with such a setup? I’ve long considered a Surly Big Dummy or the new RANS Hammertruck. Now, thanks to TerraCycle, we have a 3-wheel option, with more to come for recumbent riders. If I were about to tour again, I’d seriously consider a Cargo Monster. The question is which trike [Terry]? The best to Pat Franz and TerraCycle with this new product.
