    Default Greetings from Germany

    Hello from the edge Stuttgart, Germany. I'm looking at getting a pedicab, probably a Maximus, as much for private use as anything, and everyone looks at me funny when I say it here. As far as I know there is no pedicab company in Stuttgart as the steep hills mitigate against pedal power so I could do with somewhere to get advice and generally talk with persons of like mind...

    Any particular reason for the Maximus (which does look good) rather than the velocab (which is built near Karlsruhe, which I thought was near by?

    Woah... sorry for the rude silence. Life took over and I forgot to respond. Thanks for the welcome. We've put a careful toe in the water by getting an Xtracycle conversion to see if we'd use a workbike/rickshaw for our family transport: We're using it almost daily and getting better at climbing hills. ONly trouble is local infrastructure is geared to two wheels, so we aren't sure if a three wheeler will fit anywhere...

    That seems to be a common problem (velo infrastructure designed for 2 wheels, and not wide things). We´ve held off due to that problem. Plus, Switzerland has a law that bikes/velos must be no more than 1m wide, while most modern commercial rikschas are 1.2m wide. I didn´t think that the extra 20cm would be a problem until I started measuring potential car-free paths...
