    All set to order a Proslide stand-on sulky, when saw a good ad for the Velke Pro (Wright Mfg.) They say this one wheeler is better because:
    a.) can mow closer to edges, and get into tighter corners.
    b.) can make zero-radius turns.
    c.) easier to back up
    d.) smoother ride since won't pitch side to side as two wheel sulkies.

    Can any users comment on the validity of these claims?
    My main concern: I like neat stripes. Do one-wheel sulkys tend to leave a tire track down the middle? Does it take away from the finished appearance?
