Parking brake deleted to save weight.

Without rack, generator, mudguards etc the weight is about 29lbs.

Maybe doing some mods soon to save more weight, replace crankset with velokraft 150mm crabon crankset with 60/48/34, replace brake levers with Jtek weight weenie levers, replace brakes with avid callipers and weight weenie rotors. I hope to see a sub 27lbs trike
