“I have to say the show was very successful for GreenSpeed, and the success is most easily seen in the show report from Bent Rider On Line, the largest recumbent news web site” – Ian Sims, GreenSpeed Innovator – Report from Bent Rider On Line
“The trike is beautiful. The design of your trike is the best I’ve seen. Boy is this thing low! And a blast to ride! I have never experienced a trike with this of good handling and super positive and light steering. The steering/front end geometry is fantastic, the best I’ve tried. I don’t know exactly how you’ve done it, but I can clearly see that trikes are your specialty. The brakes are hooked up independently, but you can brake on 100% on one side with no proplem. It is certainly the most well-balanced trike I’ve ever tried. It seems to be impossible to lift up the rear wheel, and the turning radius is super tiny. I am riding around in circles in the width of my driveway.
As for the craftsmanship, the frame tubes are excellent, some are hand ovalized-on only one end. The boom is excuisite. There is some kind of liner tube in there (3 section boom?). The frame with integral trianglulated seat (as part of the frame) is a great design. It’s stiff, but very light at the same time. The stiffness and strength of the seat, handlebars and all systems together seem to offer the durability (and gorgeous simplicity) that is missing from the Trice, Windcheetah and others. I can tell that the frame is MIG welded, rather than TIG. The MIG welding is very fine and the trike looks like a high-end unit. I must say that I have seen nicer weld beads onTIG welded recumbents / trikes, but never nicer MIG beads. This is fine with me, and I the craftsmanship of the trike is overall the best I’ve seen on any trike. I will enjoy testing this trike!” – Jim McGurn “Encycleopedia” 1993/4, U.K

“The GreenSpeed is great. You ride like on rails even when it’s very icy. You don’t feel so cold because of the lieing position” – Robert J. Bryant, Recumbent Cyclist News, USA
