Regarding learning curves - this is a really interesting video:
Maybe you already know it…
Actually a bit OT because not strictly about Pythons/Recumbents at all, but
more about how our brain works.

We never had an accident with the cargo bike, but he did nearly lose his
right foot to the stokid python (python/tandem combo). His foot got caught
between frame and rear wheel, and the resulting wound was really bad. Even
though it was a big drama he was not put off at all.
I am grinning from ear to ear when I see him struggling. I recognise it so
well from my own struggles at the time.

Hehe - I remember the first meters like it was yesterday. ;-)
Is he the one who jammed his fingers in the wheel when riding in the cargo
version of yours?
If yes: glad it didn’t put him off…
Good luck for practicing!
Get ready for your first tour next weekend! :-D

Hey! Thank you all for the kind words!
Little progress video that shows he also struggling just like anybody else

This is the perfect age for learning.
I guess he will master it in a fraction of the time compared to people
beyond fourty like me…
I also like the bike design - so clean and reduced to the relevant things
(including mudguards ;-)

I was looking for a bike for my son ( nearly 14yrs old) and got my hands
on the monty (http://en.openbike.org/wiki/Monty
<http://en.openbike.org/wiki/Monty>). I adjusted the front so the BB
distance is adjustable and the bike is now a perfect fit for my child! He
has been longing to ride a python for years now and is busy learning it :-)
Attached are pics showing the changes and my son on the bike.
