Hi all

So is this lean steer or rear steer ?

Or maybe both


Can't decide whether it is ' good ' or ' bad ' however it is interesting n'est-ce pas

I would say lean steer rather than rear steer. pendulum action return s the rider to the centre. Quite clever.

Kalysta dela WOOSH!

Yeah it looked quite intriguing at first but probably impractical for anything more than a quick muckaround.

I'd describe all tilt-steer deltas as rear steer also and all tilt-steer tadpoles as front steer also. Any tilt-steer trike has a fixed steer to lean ratio and turns the two wheeled axle off the perpendicular to the main rail whilst leaning that main rail over into the corner. That particular one won't stay upright in too many corners with that very high pivot for the rear effectively becoming a lever with which to pull the trike over.

This trike is a nice toy, but I wouldn't do any trips with it, other than around my house.
But the system it uses, is nice. His design is only not that great.
