Two-Seat Tricycle "Drives Like A Car"
The "Tri-Hauler" rides on three 20-in. wheels and has a twin plastic seat that can be moved back and forth 10 in. to accommodate all size riders. The specially designed handlebar is wide enough for both riders.
"It's the best marriage counselor you can buy," says Gary Albertson, Isanti Engineering, Inc., Fergus Falls, Minn. "If one person gets tired they can simply stop pedaling and let the other take over. It's geared high enough that two kids can go 20 mph with it, yet it's geared low enough that two older people can drive it up a hill. The handlebar can be folded all the way to the front so if necessary you can get off the unit and pull it up hill. It'll turn 360 degrees in its own tracks.
"There's nothing on it that you can't buy at a local bike shop. We sell a lot of them to handicapped people who can pedal but can't be left on their own with a conventional bicycle. There's a hitch on back so you can pull a wagon with it."
Optional equipment includes a 20-in. rear-mount basket, battery-operated headlight, between-seat tray, and upholstered soft seat.
Sells for $795 plus S&H.
