    So, out of interest, has anyone else ever heard of these? Does anyone else have one of these?

    In a nutshell, they're three wheeled scooters, that camber. With a combination of turning and leaning, you can provide a (small) amount of thrust to propel yourself forward.

    Because of the design, downhills are fantastic, weaving in and out all over the place, but uphills are a struggle.

    Anyway, it just feels like I'm the only one in the whole world that's even heard of them, let alone own one. I mention it because its Summer soon, and I expect to break mine out for shooting through London's parks!
