Caught this while stuck at a red light. Shoot first, look later. Interesting drive train, but the CG looks too close to the front roll axis. Anyone here know if this is commercial?

In general, having the CG closer to the front axle on a tadpole trike makes it more resistant to rollover- good when the seat it up high. It's more comfort-oriented over performance-oriented.

Thanks for the link, Jeff. I guess if Wizwheels is selling it, they haven't been too face-plant prone.
