Be aware that the Cruzbike has a fairly steep learning curve but people have put out some serious speed in them.

Personally, if I was looking at a two wheeled bent, which Iím not, Iíd look at the Vite site and check out the new Freestyle and some of his other stuff. John and his wife are also Bacchetta dealers if one needs to order Bacchetta Carbontrike or a CA3.

BTW, I ride an ICE VTX with all the light stuff. Iíd put it up against a Bacchetta Carbontrike anyday. Itís not carbon but itís got a better pedigree, stiffer, etc. Top line VTX cost is close to the same.
Thanks. That ICE VTX looks like a serious machine. Quite expensive though. What is the Vite site you talk about?

Good to know that the trikes are generally slower, although I feel that there has to be more to it than just one extra tire worth of rolling resistance.
