Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

The TRIX human-powered carving trike

April 22, 2006 The first prize at the 10th
International Bicycle Design Competition in Tapei is a rip-snorter. A
brief look through our powered three-wheeler portfolio shows we love
trikes and the carving concept of steering in particular. The TRIX uses
rack and pinion steering to offer a carving-like experience to
human-powered trikes, removing the utilitarian feel of the flat turning
arc of a rigid frame and replacing it with pure fun without removing
the intrinsic cargo-carrying benefit of the three-wheeler. The steering
also means a tighter turning circle and significantly improved
manoeuvrability as it can slalom between obstacles and lean into curves
like a motorcycle. As it is ideally suited to negotiate narrow, or
congested streets, TRIX is ideal for city centre life and can be
adapted to transport goods or become a space-age rickshaw with a
single, front-seated passenger.
