Nice trike and by a company that puts a lot of effort in building trikes that last a long time and handle superbly.
Expect to be a bit slower than you would like, especially when first beginning to ride a trike. It uses different muscles than a DF bike so there is not as much crossover with the stamina you may have built up. It gets a lot better with time and effort but you probably will never be quite as fast on the trike as on a road bike. It is well worth the loss in speed when it comes to comfort. I was off my Catrike 700 for many months while awaiting hand surgery. I know what it is like to start out all over. Hills that are a real annoyance in the beginning will feel like just part of the ride after a while. It is now fun again to ride. Good luck with your new toy!
