Well, my first day with my new bike and the suspension is awesome. The bike rides great and looks even better. It is not designed to ride big jumps or big obstacles, but for more for general fire roads or dirt roads it seems fine. I ride on the streets and hard packed dirt roads and it is really fun to ride. The gears work good, shocks are a joy, and so do the brakes. I would buy it again in a minute, especially for the competitive price.
I have been using this chair for a couple of weeks now and I'm pretty happy with it. It's been very good on my back, my posture has been much better while sitting for long periods. I really don't want to complain about this product, it's price is very good for how comfortable it is. The only thing that I did need to change had to do with the wheel locks. The manufacturer put them on all four wheels, which is needed if you are going to use this chair for exercise, but I would randomly step on one of the brakes when sitting down. A few days ago I cut the plastic brake tabs off of the wheels and haven't had a problem since. I will buy another one when this one wears out.
I was looking at bike trailers and stumbled on the Trailgator... my daughter is 4 so I wasn't sure if she would sit there and if her bike would tip. After getting it, it took about 45 minutes to get it installed (mostly being careful to attach everything safely.) The first ride went great. It's very stable and secure. Now we ride every weekend usually about 3 miles or more. It's really easy to separate and the bar holder for the parents bike works great also. I would definitely recommend this to everyone! The only problem with this product is sometimes my little brat likes to push back on her pedals and puts the brakes on...grrrr. (And they need green!)...nothing a paintjob can't fix though.
After having this product for about a month and have used for 100 miles, I find that it meets the needs for which I purchased it. It was fairly easy to assemble with directions that made sense if followed. A recumbent bike was recommended by a doctor due to back pain as a method to get exercise. I did not want one with a ton of bells and whistles which led me to this particular bike. I find the bike sturdy and comfortable for the 20-30 minutes that I ride each day and am able to monitor my pulse rate to ensure that I reach a aerobic rate. The only drawback to the bike is the 4" of exposed cabling beneath the seat of the bike - they are very attractive to four-legged members of your family. Problem solved by throwing a sheet over the seat area, grabbing the front two corner and tying around to the back of the seat.
