I plan on buying a TerraTrike Tour II Base next month but as a new rider, I'm concerned about avoiding car traffic. I have discovered that with some occasional turf-riding, I could avoid the bussiest through-ways and jump between residential areas to connect to near-by bike trails.
I would like to hear what recomendations you might have to make this kind of riding more comfortable. I wouldn't call it "off road" riding, exactly, since that conjurs up visions of a muddy BMX course. It's more like gentle riding over empty lots and taking turf easements between housing developments in good weather.
I'm thinking a larger, rear wheel, of course. But is the 26" standard weel kit a good choice or should I consider different tires or wheels?
Thanks for the recomendations,
