I experimented with a trike with off-center front wheel. It was more stable
going into right corner as I can lean in. See
Left turn was okay at normal speed.

Hello fellow pythoneers,
I'm looking for someone with personal experience with a non-tilting cargo
trike, like this:
My goal is to replace a bike+trailer combo by something equally capacious,
but faster to ride (i.e. lighter and more aero), easier to start, stop and
The only problem is I have no idea what it will do in high speed turns. Long
wheelbase, centre of mass closer to the single front wheel than rear axle,
front wheel contact patch moving into the turn - everything says it would
topple easily when not loaded heavily. I can live with some instability, the
question is: would I have to slow down for every turn so much that it offsets
all the aero and weight benefits over the bike and trailer?
Tilting front end is also an option, but I'd prefer to get along without one
Thank you for any input.
