We bought this for our 18 year old daughter who has developmental delays and she absolutely loves it! Her dad even rode it and he's 6'6" and 215 pounds and he said it was a lot of fun. I have recommended it to all of her friends that she's in Special Olympics with because it is an easy bike to maneuver and ride. Couldn't be happier with it at this point.
The Triton arrived in about 7 days right on schedule, and the large shipping carton faired quite well from its transit. All of the parts were there and in good condition. The instructions were somewhat confusing at first, it seems as the instructions referred to right and left for the rear wheel assembly as if you were sitting in the seat, but the instructions for the front wheel assembly referred to right and left as if you were standing in front of the bike looking back at the trike, which reversed your prespective. But the trike assembled in about an hour. The trike is fun to ride without a doubt, but will take some increasing of my endurance to totally enjoy. It is not like a bicycle where one turn of the pedal will give you several revolutions of the wheels, the front wheel is free-wheeling, but it seems to be a 1-to-1 turning ratio so be prepared to expend a fair amount of effort pedaling. Level ground is the best riding conditions, even a slight upgrade causes the front wheel to lift off the ground when pedaling. All in all ,mostly pleased with the trike, my grandkids love it so the investment will not go to waste if I don't fully take use of the trike..
I have two little boys who are going blind due to RP. because of their deafness, their balance is also impaired. These bikes are a godsend! Now they can play outside with the other kids and not feel left out. This is such a fun bike, and instead of standing out like I was concerned with, everyone thinks that their bike is the coolest one on the block! Thank you for a fantastic product!

This item is great for riding around the park. I have bad knees and this doesn't bother them. Great for someone who has balance problem, no falling off this.

The bike is comfortable, fun to ride and a great way to get your aerobic exercise. My only disappointment is that one of the rear tires needs to be reinflated everyday. An inconvenience to be sure. Other than that, the bike is worth the money.
I was in an accident and broke my back and both my legs, along with some other injuries. Now that I'm getting back to normal activities it's nice to have a "bike" I can use to get some fresh air and excercise. It offers great back support and is very comfortable all around. It would be nice to have a trike with multiple gears, but for the price this trike is great. I will probably even use it once I am able to ride a regular bike again. Looks great too, I always have people staring and smiling when I'm on it. I'm definately glad I purchased it.
I love this trike. I had a knee replacement and I can no longer ride a regular bike. I have an adult tricycle too that is easier to ride but I am afraid I will turn over on it so I got the triton which doesn't turn over as easy but it is harder to pedal and so I can't ride as far but overall I love it and the way it looks is cool.
- How accurate was the sizing? accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It could be a little sturdier although it did stand up to my 5 grandchildren riding it. the design needs to be easier to pedal up hills. the trike's front wheel spins because all the weight is on the back wheels.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? yes

- How accurate was the sizing? very

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.
The first day I rode this, the foot pedal kept falling off because the crank was put on backwards from the manufacturer. The left crank which holds the foot pedal won't stay tight, and so after about 10 minutes of riding it, I have to tighten it. I kept the tools in a little bag on the bike because it kept falling apart. I ended up returning it. The most disappointing feature is that it only has one speed...it's like being on a 10 speed and having it on the easiest gear all the time. The things I love about it is how comfortable,relaxing, and stylish it is. The price was good.
