There is a story by Mike Swift at Mercury News with pictures of the streetview tricycle. Information was from Google's Daniel Ratner.

"... Google is using ungainly, 250-pound, 9-foot-long, human-powered trikes with a 7-foot stalk of cameras on the back."

"Google often hires soccer players and other athletes to pedal the heavy trikes, which have special gearing but are extremely heavy for a human-powered vehicle."

The Google Lat Long blog has some more coverage.
