Jeff, you can email me at cqcqhal@gmail.com with your phone number and I'll give you a call. Also let me know when it would be a good time to call.  I live in Springdale and am retired so my schedule is pretty flexible.   I've only had a brief peak at Ben's new store in SS and I'd like to go over there again.  When I chose the Rambler GT I had only ridden a few models and had no experience with trikes.  I'm a lot more knowledgeable now than back in August.  I'd like to test ride some of his other models and I think I could point out some things that maybe Ben might not think of.  Would that work for you? I just discovered your note. I wasn't aware that you could send private messages and I was hesitant to put too much info out on the forums in general....learn something new every day!

    @TrikesterHal - Mike from Michigan here. Just wanted to let you know I just purchased a Catrike 559. I got a steal of a deal... 2016 Catrike 559 with a Rohloff Speed Hub and a Schlumfp High Speed Drive, 3-fenders, Power Grips on std pedals, wrists rests, padded seat,
    dual mirrors, headrest, twist shifters, and a rear rack, all in excellent shape and for just $2600. I have to drive to Boston next week to pick it up.

    So, I couldn't yet afford a Dumont (although I still want one), but what can you tell me about the 559 that I need to know and/or might like to know. I am thinking about changing out the Schwalbe Marathon Racer's that come stock for either Kenda Flames or Schwalbe Big Apples and keep them minimally aired so as to provide passive suspension. Do you think that's a good idea? What else would you suggest I consider?

    Please call me as I have lost your phone number. If we head to Tucson maybe we can ride together. Reach me (9AM-11PM) at: 517-721-1016 home or 269-986-8419 cell.

    I am looking at buying a Rover as soon as possible from Dogwood Junction in Siloam Springs unless I can find a used one first. I have bad knees and all the research I've done points to the recumbent trike as being the best if you want to still ride. I also work with a guy that wants to buy a trike as well. Of course he is looking at a very sleek, racing type trike and a large price tag as well.

    I really want to take advantage of the trails that NWA has to offer and would also like to find other trike riders as well. I live in Bentonville.
