Big Wheels for the big ride

Matt Armbruster turned heads Wednesday with his Big Wheel trike for grown-ups.

“It snaps you right back to being 6 years old,” he said. “It’s pure joy.”

The 18- or 19-year RAGBRAI veteran from Denver joined this year’s ride today, with the sturdy tricycle he built with a 26-inch front wheel, a pair of 14-inchers in the back and a cushy yellow seat like the kind you might find on a riding lawn mower.

He’s selling them for $600 via his website, at www.highrollerusa.com – tassels and bell included.
