Strengths:    A well built machine it tracked well. I found the seat height very comforting especially in a busy urban area. The inclusion of a rear rack allowed me to carry all sorts of items so that the bike replaced my car for short hope around town.

Weaknesses:    Two adjustments would make this a better bike. On long rides the seat angle caused me to have some pain in the tailbone. The ability to adjust the seat angle would have fixed this problem.
I did not opt for front brakes. This is a MUST if you are going to tackle hills with a serious down grade. The rear wheel will lock and skid if you do not feather the single brake on long descents.

Bottom Line:   
This was a great entry level trike. I was able to establish that this type of ride was worth it for me. If I had the garage space I would have kept this bike but unfortunately it had to move on. The off the shelf parts made this an easy vehicle to work on, weight was not a factor and the seat height made the rider visible in traffic.
