what is the Greenspeed GT3 like as a trike?

Postby gudism » Tue Feb 04, 2014 4:00 pm

Hi all

I have come across this trike for sale

http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/kurrajon ... 1038012974

Is the Greenspeed GT3 a good trike?

I should add I am 6'7" tall and 100kg. Not sure of my x seam though......whilst I'm tall I'm not all legs if you know what I mean!

Thanks
Craig

I saw that you missed out on it, I can't vouch for fit the Greenspeed sight will cover that but I owned one for a few years and 15,000 km's, excellent trike with a slightly rough ride on bad surfaces but it didn't stop me using it on fire trails :), like all GS trikes I have ridden really nice steering.
If another comes up as long as the fit is ok grab it especially at that kind of price.

Thanks Geebee. I'm keeping my eyes open but there isnt much around 2nd hand right now.
Leaning toward buying a new Performer trike for around then $1500-1700 mark.......its no GS but I cant afford a new one or even one around the usual money they pull 2nd hand forma newish one.

Make sure you try the performer. When I tried it I found it like a noodle and I'm only 6" Your x-seam is most likely bigger than mine so more boom out inducing even more flex
