This trike is awesome! I bought it for myself, but my 5 year old has taken it from me. It is comfortable and easy to steer. Drawbacks: it is hard to pedal off road and does not turn on a dime like you think it might. However, the sturdiness and durability make this a fun comfortable machine. If I had the choice to purchase it again, I would definitely do so.

We've had it a few weeks and love it. My 8 yr old does NOT love her regular bike - she struggles a lot with anxiety and is always worried she will fall. But she loves the Triton. I bought it for us to share and hubby and I do ride it also, but it is small for anyone with longer legs(I'm 5'7 - he's 5'9). I wish it would stretch out further, all 3 of us ride it at the longest position and it's perfect for our daughter, but not so much for us. But she wheels around with a huge grin on her face. Assembly was fairly easy. I do very much disagree with the statement that it 'turns on a dime'. The turning radius is poor. Riding up hill is quite a workout on this also. But on flat surfaces with plenty of room for turns, it is really fun! Steering is very easy one handed, but the hand brake is only on the right. My only other wish would be to be able to pedal backward.

I purchased 2 of these bikes, the one seems fine (except for constant flat tires, the inner tubes used are not of good quality so I replaced with the goo-tubes) One of the bikes has a continual problem with one of the pedals. The pedal keeps coming out of the shaft and the whole pedal assembly comes out of the wheel base. I added lock washers on the wheel base. The pedals are labeled left and right (from a standing position in front facing the bike, not from a seated position) I have contacted Overstock and requested a new front wheel because I don't want the hassle of disassembling the bike and shipping it back, then waiting for a new one and assembling it. These bikes are great fun.

I love my new bike. I have bad knees and was told not to ride a bike that requires pressure on the knee. But this bike has allowed me to ride a bike outdoors and still able to pedal (exercise) without the strain on my knees. Gets me to where I need to go without much pain.Wish the quality of the fenders and chain guard was a little bit sturdier but other then that, LOVE IT.

Love the bike. It's a blast to ride as we have a multitude of trails where I live. I have had multiple knee and back surgery's so the assist pedal allows me to keep peddling up a hill with no stress to my knee's. At the age of 62 it feels great to be back on a bike again. The assembly instructions are very basic and do not cover all that needs to be done. I took it took a bike shop ($30) to have all the brakes adjusted because I wanted to make sure all was secure and safe. Would definitely recommend this bike.

Having multiple aged grandchildren, our 3 adult children, my husband and I we chose the 20" Mobo Ultimate Pro for the convenience mostly of any or all of us being able to ride the bike with just having to adjust the length on the frame. The adjustment is easy, Our almost 6yr old grand-daughter Kasey knows how and can make the adjustment. Myself having not ridden a bike in probably 15+ years and Kasey having epilepsy were two of the reasons we chose this Mobo also. I was concerned with health issues I had been having the past few years, along with my doctor considering my health as FRAGILE that I would be lucky to be able to ride any bike. The bike for Kasey, we chose for her to be safer on her rides. I have to tell you the bike is awesome. Ok,, we read the reviews....it is a pedal bike, not a 10 speed or 3 speed just a pedal bike. We are having a ball with it. Certianly iss exercise, but it hasn't seemed like it. Pure fun to ride. Myself I have been riding approx. 4 miles a day. The very first day I rode 6 miles (in 3 diff rides). Amazed I was and am. Many said to me "OOOOOO, you are going to be sore tomorrow." Have not been yet. For anyone concerned about the leaning forward on a traditional bike and the pressure put on your wrists and hands, also your arms supporting your head and upper body...that is gone here with the Mobo. I am sitting back, pretty comfy and pedaling. I cannot say enough good about this bike. the only complaint Kasey has is that it is not pink and/or purple. My husband and I said we'd wished we had known about this bike when our twins were young. The Mobo could have eliminated the multiple bike purchases as our kids grew. Kasey has LONG legs and she can ride this bike wonderfully. She loves it. My husband and I are riding the Mobo. I am riding it almost daily when it has not been raining. Several friends have tried this bike. My daughter-in-law usually does not ride a bike because it has hurt her knees even when she was a child/teen....she has ridden once and no knee pain, just some good humored teasing as she rode in her work uniform and she is a security guard...it was then Kasey thought the Mobo needed a siren as the "cops was coming, the cops was coming" shouted Kasey with glee when her Mom rode. Ok, I think we have given you the idea we are loving this bike. Not only do we love this bike, we have 2 more being delivered today. If you want to go fast, this bike is not for you, want to ride and have fun, I would definitely recommend this bike.

Our 8-yr old son, who's tall for his age (55"), got this bike for Christmas. But, like other reviewers here and on other shopping sites warned, the pedals FELL OFF! The pedals were completely the wrong size for the crank arms! I do have to say that once we called the correct Bike USA number, they were very helpful and apologetic. They sent us a new set of pedals within just a few days. BUT, considering it's a known problem, we wish they'd just correct the problem at the manufacturing end. The only other technical issue is the hand brake does need adjusting and tightening to work properly, so be sure to check that as well before sending your child off on the bike. The good part is, the bike is solid and our son loves it. He's been riding it nearly every day, in spite of temps in the 30s.

No instructions but I figured it out. I figured out how to take the old pedals off and for the longest time I couldn't screw in the new pedals, so after trying for 35 min. I decided to reverse the direction that I was screwing it and it screwed in. Lights up when there is one revolution spin on the pedals. so it keeps flashing as you pedal. Great sturdy heavy duty pedals. I accidently dropped one and it lights up so great.

I had to return it because they did not fit my bike, not sure if the pedal description was wrong (size) or the bike description (they were ordered at the same time from different companies. The pedals appear to be high quality from forged aluminium and I spun the pedals in my hand and they worked well, really cool. I would recommend them and the return of the merchandise to Overstock was excellent, I would buy from this company again.
