Ever since Big Wheels, the tricycle has faded away, back to its spot as the second least cool way to get around (behind the perennial favorite, Rollerblades). But why does it have to be that way? Have we let the wheel industry upsell our society so completely? There was simple, honest beauty in wailing a Big Wheel into a ditch while your friends cheered. That was cool. And it's something the world needs more of.
And after a bit of research, I've found some startling news. There are other cool tricycles out there, some almost as cool as the Big Wheels themselves, tricycles the quad-wheeled industrial complex has been suppressing. Below I've selected four of the most genuinely cool three-wheeled experiences that exist (or have existed). These vehicles were designed to carry humanity to a better place, a simpler place, a metaphorical place, which is also an actual place, which is a ditch that we've just wailed into as hard as possible.
