I had admired these for a long time in-club and never splurged on one, but finally received one as a gift. (Yay!) I assembled it myself on Christmas Day with not too much difficulty; the hardest parts were (1) trying to decipher the generic, for-multiple-models instructions and pictures and (2) torqueing some of the bolts because I had a ridiculous case of tennis elbow. The first day I rode it I heckled one of those multi-person party bikes (search "Savannah Slow Ride" for visual) and gave a handful of tourists a good giggle: a rider proclaimed, "We just got lapped by a grown woman on a tricycle! I love this town!" and received a riotous amount of laughter. I also receive regular compliments from pedicab operators, giggles from pedestrians, and wide-eyed appreciation from school children... so at least I know this thing is high-visibility! Riding it takes some getting used to, though - I keep trying to lean into turns rather than steer - but I'm really enjoying this trike. The rear basket is perfect for small grocery loads and is surprisingly stable. I've yet to spill any drink accidentally forgotten back there, even an open Solo cup full of soda, despite riding haphazardly over cobblestones and potholes! Best gift ever. It's fun, silly, attention-grabbing, and actually pretty darn practical. Love it.
