What is best - Three wheels or Two?
· Generally offer more space in the cabin for passengers and baggage.
· Able to climb hills without having to worry about maintaining balance.
· More stable when stopping and starting: you never have to put your foot on the ground.
· More stable on snow or ice, which can be hazardous for all two- wheel bikes.
· Can be walked more easily in pedestrianised areas or shared paths with all your children/cargo inside.
· Faster in frequent stop – start situations.
· More manoeuvrable, with a much smaller turning circle and able to turn very slowly when required.
· More "presence" when sharing the road with motor vehicles, which have to wait tuntil the road ahead is clear before passing.
· Generally faster, especially on longer distances.
· Handling is more similar to a conventional bicycle than a three- wheeler.
· Allows you to ride faster on corners; but has a much larger turning circle, so is less manoeuvrable than a three- wheeler.
· Typically narrower, though generally 30cm longer, can therefore fit through narrower spaces, such as a smaller gate or gaps between cars, and be can be stored in a narrow space or even pass through front door of house.
