Trikes and Other
This type of electric bike has three wheels. Trike is short for tricycle, tri means three. There are two dominant configurations for these wheels including delta which has two wheels in the back and one up front, and tadpole which has two wheels in the front and one in the back. Tadpole trikes tend to be the most stable and can corner at higher speeds without tipping over. In general, trikes are stable, easy to load with gear, and allow the rider to sit in a more recumbent laid-back or forward position, which improves comfort and aerodynamic efficiency. Some upright trikes feature large baskets in the rear and are popular for seniors who use them to get around town and run errands.
