I currently own a TT Path 8 IGH that has been upgraded to 16 speeds with the addition of a Patterson Metropolis 2 speed transmission up front. The Path is a fun trike to ride with the low 9 1/2" seat height and the Ackerman steering.
Lately I have been thinking about moving on to a newer model with an external drive system, 24, 27 or 30 available gear combinations. When looking through the product line on TT's website, I discovered a pattern. It seems that the newer models all have the taller seat height of 15" to 15-1/2" and are all direct drive. My wife's 2015 Rambler fits in this category and, quite frankly, I'm not too found on it. My steering is so much quicker than her Rambler's and I feel more comfortable lower to the ground on my Path.
I would like to hear other's opinions on the apparent trend with TerraTrike's newer designs.
