Aergo update
Written by Travis Prebble

We've been playing around with the Aergo velomobile a bit since the last time we posted our progress.  We've improved the Aergo structurally and eliminated a lot of the shell wobble that used to be present.  We also added on side mirrors, opened up the floor to eliminate heel strike, and installed a BionX power assist system.

Road trials were planned (that is, Alycia was going to use it as a commuter) but we found a new wrinkle - the shell is so well secured that its height is inducing trike shimmy!  First step at working out that shimmy is to replace the bearings in the Catrike Trail that sits inside.

Take a look at what we've been up to!
