i just bought my own Triton. The first time i ever road one was when i was on vacation and i was camping near the red woods and the place i was camping at had a bike rental. i asked what the were called and they said Triton. So I rented one and i just had a blast on it. Soo i desited to by one. and now my mom and dad even ride it. My three sisters have one now. I would recremend this bike to every kid and parent in the world.
I searched long & hard for racks to hold my bikes in my bike room. It's hard to find something that isn't cheaply made and/or that looks terrible. I was looking for something made of real wood in a dark hue that could hold at least 2 bikes (TT, road, CX & MTB) and that looked classy. I was thrilled to pick up 2 of these OakRak bike racks in the darkest color version. The racks were straightforward to install & they look really great. I've received nothing but compliments since I installed them in my bike room. And the value for the $$ on Overstock is simply wonderful! It is very important to measure carefully and get the tension just right so that the rack holds firmly in place. I would recommend having 2 people assist with the installation, if it's at all possible. I've already recommended this particular item to several of my fellow cyclists. I am VERY pleased with this purchase.
The rack is good looking, I appreciate that it is wooden and made in the United States. I had a slight problem with alignment of the holes, but nothing a little drilling couldn't fix. I also feel lucky that I ordered before the Spring rush, I paid a slightly lower price than what's listed now.
The assembly instructions were not very clear, so assembly was tricky, required some guess work, and took quite a while. It's also difficult to get the height and tension exactly right and it involves a lot of very small adjustments. Once eventually secured in place, it still moves around a bit, turning on its own axis mostly. But it will still stay upright and in place and is otherwise very sturdy. It's also fairly attractive looking for a bike stand, particularly because it's made of solid wood. The arms can be adjusted, but not without tools. That means they're secure and will not slide down, as in some other bike stands, but it also means that if you have different bikes with different frames going on there, it will be a pain to have to adjust. This is a good bike stand if you keep the same bikes in the same place, not so good if there will be a variety of bikes using it.
