Nice when once assembled
on February 27, 2013
After spending literally days shopping for trikes on the web, as well as bike shops, I decided on this one for several reasons. It looks alittle stronger than some trikes, the price and free shipping and the six speeds.
Assembly was a challenge. The instructions were for a different trike and gave you only a few instructions and they basically were useless. Since I am mechanically inclined and have worked on bikes all my life, I took the challenge to put it together myself. After alot of trial and error, mostly error, I got it together. The first thing I realized is that the seat with the back is entirely too small and I couldn't tighten the seat enough to keep it from moving. I bought a new seat and after closer examination I saw the back can be taken off. It is great to ride, but needs a little getting used to. You need to be careful so you don't get on slopes sideways, like the end of a driveway. It can easily be turned over, if not careful. A little leaning the right way helps. I look forward to riding it all over our development when the weather is nicer.
The shipper was very helpful. The web said that it didn't contain instructions and had to send for them I did that and they sent them the same day, by e-mail. They were for another trike. There were instructions in the box, but were the same as the e-mail. There was no color choice given,, but the company themselves called me and wondered what color I wanted. The package came a day before promised and had only a small tear in the box.
Amazon had a price of $409.90 and free shipping, but e-bay had them for $80.00 less but $80.00 shipping.
So far to me it is a great trike and am glad I can again get to riding.
