It has 12" front wheels and a 16" rear drive wheel. Brakes are your arms. Ain't nothing else. You have to control the speed with your upper body. Steering is done with the feet, which are placed on the front axle. I rode it for about 200 yards and was blowing pretty good afterward. So, this ain't for little girls. This is for the Big Boys.

Safe Rides,

Is that kind of like a hand powered rail car? We need a video of you riding it.

Would it more comfortable (is that the right word ?) if there was a back to the seat, then you could push as well as pull.!
Or just lay back on the down hills--or is it a fixed wheel--you said you stop with the arms.
Interesting .

Since you are constantly rocking back and forth a back on the seat wouldn't be a good idea. And it is a fixed rear drive wheel. It's how you control all of your speed.
