Recumbent trike avatar

Has there been any more thought or discussion on putting a recumbent tadpole trike avatar in the game?

Some recent discussions are linked below. These threads should probably be merged together @Gerrie_Delport_ODZ

I have searched the forum for this subject. One of those posts is mine. Most of them are a couple of years old. I see there is a handcycle avatar, would be sweet if there could be a recumbent tadpole trike avatar also. I think it would be advantageous for other riders to see that there are riders that can’t do the two wheelers, but still want to ride, and can be seen riding what they ride. Plus I think it would or could bring more riders to the game. Just my thoughts.
Thanks for the quick response.

Have you heard anything in this. I’m getting a vtx due to disability. Is it easy to hookup to wahoo kicker and use in Zwift.

Still waiting for the avatar. I use my trike with my Zwift hub, works well. But a recumbent trike avatar would be nice. I’ve put in a request a couple of times, but keep getting referred to the forums. Hopefully we can get enough people to request the avatar to get one…

Would this bridge the gap?

Not for me, because that uses your arms for power. Totally different mechanics if they have it set up right in Zwift.

That is my concern as well, Rick. I love the idea of getting to ride a bike that looks like my real bike in-game. Using the arm cycle just because the rider is laying down doesn’t really solve the issue, and fussing with the power/gearing to make it behave right doesn’t sound like a fun time.

I have a lot of respect for those who power themselves with their upper body, I certainly wouldn’t make it very far!
