Hugh claims his customers "are the nicest people in the world." Hugh himself would rank pretty high on the nice-o-meter. When we called him from downtown Chico to get directions to his shop, he materialized twenty feet from our car. Seriously. You need REALLY good karma to bring that off. Here he is with his kids and his trikes.

You've heard of rolhoff transmissions that make derailleurs obsolete? Here's what one would look like on your Kettweisel Lepus, if you broke down and got one. You shift with your foot at the light from a dead stop.
Here's the thing about trikes: there are no balance issues, no weirdness of any kind and no learning curve. You just get on and a minute later you're tooling down the street with this goofy smile on your face. You have become your inner three year old. But don't take my word for it. Talk to Hugh.
