Took delivery of my '08 trike conversion a couple of weeks ago. Great service by CStanley of Middleburg, PA. Very smooth ride which is essential for my wife's arthritic hip. No complaints there.
However, the rear brakes are pathetic. Hitting the rear brakes has almost no effect on stopping so all stopping power is on the front. This, obviously, does not result in a safe stopping distance. I was looking at getting a trailer but I don't think I would be able stop safely with the extra weight pushing me.
Has anyone experienced this problem with Hannigan or any other trike with disk brakes? It's scary! I would think the stopping power would be greater, or at least equal to, a bike. Sure, there's more weight but there's also now two rotors and calipers on the back.
