Hi guys & gals - Just an older guy trying to figure out if I should motorize a 3 wheeler for running to the store, etc. or if I need to create a 3 wheel velomobile without pedals & just use a 40-50 cc Mitsubishi. I have a lot of 13 degree hills to climb but really don't want to pedal due to arthritic knees. However on the flats would like to go at least 25-30 mph which I realize increases the danger. Am looking at the EZ-3 as well as coverting the Classic Rider from here: - http://www.bicycledesigner.com/defaulthome.asp?Navigation=bicyclesnavigation.asp&Main=/bicyclesmain.asp?Type=TRIKE - which looks like it has an option of 68 spoke wheels. So any thoughts on the matter would be appreciated.
