My superb but extremely heavy Becak (pron bay-chah)
A fine Human powered machine from Indonesia.
I love this Becak
IIt is almost impossible to ride uphill with passengers as there are no gears
IGoing down hill is very scary, the only brake is this lever, which, when pushed down, forces two chunks of car tyre up under the rear rim, there are no brakes on the front wheels and no steering damper
