Tricycle Evolution Actually Quite Thrilling


It started humbly with this wobbly machine-shop prototype in the 1940s...



...the plastic revolution of the 70's led to this most awesome "Big Wheel" childhood ride...



...another thirty years later, this wicked machine is kicking ass down Nelson street today while I try to chase it down for some helmet cam close-ups. But wow, this guy is fast! I pumped my messenger guns to the max to catch up; you can hear me panting at the end.
