    I was looking for something else but found this - very cool. Worth watching. These guys are nuts.

    That looks like a lot of effort. Occasionally I'll see someone riding a Trikke on the paths here in the Twin Cities. It's the only time attention is drawn away from what I'm riding.

    It could be. The lady I saw was probably in her 40's, had dark hair, and was a little heavy set. Sound like her?

    Thanks for posting the video. It looks very fun and right up my alley since I'm a stand-up bike rider. It reminds me of riding my ElliptiGO.

    I have seen only one of these "in the wild". There was a guy on one at Big Boulder. He had gotten special permission to use one as an adaptive ski device. Apparently he had a degenerative back problem where he had enough strength in his legs to ski but not in his back. The Trikke allowed him to compensate for the condition by using his upper body on the handlebars to support his weight.

    Very cool videos!

    Wookie,

    When we were at Sierra-at-Tahoe this season, there was a lady riding a Skki Trikke.

    It looked fun.

    That's awesome. I love the vid (below) these guys did in 2012 too! (Greco has it up in the videos section of SBOL)



    I would love to have an SMX bike but it would most likely be relegated to screwing around on the sledding hills by my house. I have checked with most of the hills I ride and all of them have said NO to a "ski trike". Strangely enough some are open to ski bikes but trikes are out due to various reasons.
