This looks like one mean setup ... the trailer is an Extrawheel Voyager.

Looks fancy, but I reckon a cross wind might shake things up a bit.

Maybe but you may be looking this from the perspective of the seat of a diamond frame ... it would interested to hear what the low-racer riders have to say.

My bro tours with his Rotovelo. Everything goes inside the bodywork.

Nice rig Andrew and nice find there is no doubt it's a sleek machine. I reckon I have more surface area than he ever would and I don't suffer from cross wind syndrome or road trains passing. I like the trike with the sox cover that is a neat idea while being flexible.

For those interested there is more information on the brand at http://troytec.de/PRODUCTS/Revoultion-L ... 5,341.html

It seems they are quite a flexibly design similar in some ways to the approach taken by Meta Bikes. If I had the dollars :)

I'm impressed. Great to see new ideas tryed. Both bikes are brilliant. I've got a bob style trailer I use for shopping. I don't think this trailer would hold as much but I think it would tow very well.

The Extrawheel tows, and can be maneuvered, much better than a BOB.
