SpiderBob,

Can you expand on that please? Why did you choose solid over independent? What were the handling characteristics of one versus the other.

My wife and I test rode one (Roadsmith, I believe) at WingDing in Greenville. She hated it. Said she was flopping around like a fish on the back seat.

I'm kind of interested in a trike but not if it doesn't handle right or keep my wife happy on the back seat.

Thanks.

The independent suspension gave me a feeling of too much lean that I could not control as you canon a twowheeler. The solid axle in conjunction with two additional shocks and the air shock (still controlled by the on-board air compressor) handles like a Corvette. Itis not a hard-tail (that would kill you).I don't want to talk bad about independent suspension as they have a purpose, they just are not for meand my wife riding on the back.There are advantages as to rough roads for the IS system, it will bea softer ride.

Before you decide, ride the straight axle as well.
