Er - it's a hardtail? Lots of people ride trikes like that, just keep the rear tyre pressures low. Not what I'd want my self but fine if you don't want to do huge mileage.

thanks everyone ,it is as BG says a hard tail and rear tyres are set at about 12 psi if it becomes a problem then a sprung seat will be the next move but the seat on there now is from a harley and is quite padded
