I bought this trike for my autistic son because he had issues riding a normal bike. He had difficulties with balance and falling off. He wants and loves to ride a bicycle. I introduced the trike to him and he fell in love with it. He rides it everyday and enjoys it so much. It is very durable and I would recommend it to any parents having issues with their autistic child and riding a normal bicycle.
wow he can ride . he is 10 and wanted to so bad ride bike I run and run next to the regular bike till I could not breath. well he is so happy . we are going n an outing to park to ride this weekend I probably should wait to write a review cause I wish to see how I d I have heart trouble was supprised to find I can get on this and sit rather comfortable and I was able to get up from it. the steering seems weird to me but Leo picked it up fine so I imagine I will eventually catch on. I am a grandma though LOL but I sure going to give it a try I already know I do better than with regular bicycle. just may have to buy another really soon I never believed I would be able to ride bikes with him!
I have owned this bike for one week so far. First thought, the packaging. It was excellent. All was assembled with the exception of the petals and handle bar. It even came with the tools for assembly. Unfortunately the tool for installing the petals were missing but a simple crescent wrench is all that was needed. This bike is heavy and sturdy and well built. The motor is powerful enough to assist my pedaling up a relatively steep incline at a high clip while in 8th gear and I weigh 155 pounds. The derailleur has a small problem when in first gear. It hits against the motor housing as the wheel spins. I haven't had the need to use first gear so it is not a problem yet. It probably only needs an adjustment. The ride is firm and it maneuvers and handles very well. I should have gone with the shock absorber version because riding over bumps and holes goes straight to your hands. The brakes are excellent. I find myself being very comfortable riding at a fast pace knowing that I can stop quickly and safely. Overall, I am pleased and very happy that I made this purchase. My primary purpose is to ride the 5 miles to work 2-3 times a week on this bicycle.
This is the first of I hope many bicycles that I can donate to the guys at the rescue mission. They have come from some pretty dark areas and most don't have a drivers license, so transportation is these two wheeled vehicles. Thank you for the prompt service and great deal.
