I ride a Trisled that I purchased used from a friend. I'm okay with the hill climbing capacity of my trike once I developed my trike climbing muscles. For all of you who can't afford a trike, I suggest you keep an eye on Craig's List for used trikes. I paid $1200 for my trike and that included a trailer hitch and a faring. Check out my Sparkpeople page for a picture of my trike with faring and trailer.

i'm riding a sidewinder (front wheel drive ,rear wheel steering) trike with an electric assist hub motor on the rear wheel to help me get up those hills. our dog also provide extra pulling power. the trike is excellent off road with the capacity for all three wheels providing traction to the ground. the sidewinder is a folding trike so I can transport it on a standard bike hitch rack.
I hear the Catrike 700 is the fastest bent trike made. I bought my wife a used KMX Cobra. She loves it, but because of health problems doesn't ride it much. I ride it twice a week. Lot of fun but sucks on the hills. Would like to get and Ice trike, they fold up.
Wish I could join the ' bent fun as since starting Coumadin I'm WAY too paranoid to use my 2-wheeled ride. A tri-bent would afford more stability and I would consider getting back out on the road again. My wallet just couldn't swing the expense, tho.
