"These are no doubt perfect for cycling around a car-free alternative commune like Christiania. I recently saw a woman, smiling broadly, cycling her way around Old Street roundabout. In the plywood box attached to its front were three small children. The reactions of people who witnessed this ranged from dumbstruck disbelief to outright abuse. To say that this trike gives a commanding road presence is rubbish - the box is 18 inches off the road ! This means there is a good likelihood a bus or van wouldn't see it at all. Fine in a park or commune, madness on London roads."
