How to choose an adult tricycle

Before you start talking about tricycles for adults, you need to answer yourself a question: “What is it”? Bicycles with a tricycle configuration are classified as tricycles (translated from Greek. “three” and “circle”). Summarizing the meaning and we get the conclusion: a tricycle is a vehicle (car, motorcycle, bicycle) with three wheels.

In this article, we will focus exclusively on bicycles. So, what are the bike tricycles and where they are applicable?

Let’s start with the main external differences, the arrangement of the wheels:

  • One front, two back (deltoid)
  • Two in front, one in back (reverse delta)
  • Very rare, but there are models where the third wheel is located on the side of the front or rear and is connected by one axle.

Like two-wheeled bicycles, trikes are single-speed and multi-speed. They are often equipped with an electric motor. After all, operating conditions may require that, for example, the presence of lifts and transported cargo.

They operate trikes in such areas as recreation, sports, commercial purposes. Tricycles for life’s needs are very diverse. As a rule, they are equipped with large luggage compartments. The basic point of application of tricycles is the ability of this bike to move more load than its two-wheeled counterpart. Therefore, tricycles find their admirers among summer residents and people engaged in agriculture. This technique serves them as a help, sort of. A modern workhorse.

A large proportion of trike users are elderly people. In advanced years, health does not allow much and riding a tricycle. everything that can moderately load your body. Also, a trip on a tricycle has found application in the rehabilitation of disabled people and people with problems of the musculoskeletal system.

In the standard, the tricycle is designed for one rider, the seating position of the cyclist is straight, the transport has a deltoid structure, the number of gears varies. But there are models with two or more seats. Basically, the range of their use is walking with the whole family. Bench models are available, designed specifically for comfortable riding with young children. Passenger seats can be located both at the back and at the front, in relation to the driver. In addition to the passenger multi-seat versions of the Trikes, there is a three-wheeled tandem. This is a riding bike where both riders can pedal.

In the work and trade areas, tricycles also find their use due to their cargo capacity. Courier delivery of advertising stands, sale of snacks and drinks in recreational areas. this is an incomplete list of commercial uses of the tricycle. Also, practice the use of bike rides as a taxi.

The spread of tricycles in professional cycling is not that great. Many well-known liguerades or rikambents have a reclining position on the back, in rare cases. On the stomach. The advantage of such models is the minimum load on the back and higher aerodynamics, and, accordingly, high speed. The disadvantages are heavy weight, size, slow turning and more difficult climbing. There are special competitions where bikers take part in LIGERAD bike rides.

It is NOT uncommon for mountain tricycles to be used to deliver a basic sports equipment such as a surfboard or snowboard to an extreme holiday destination. After all, the qualities that a mountain bike needs are preserved on a tricycle. They are even joined by another plus. the ability to place sports equipment and accessories.

Let us briefly consider the handling and maneuverability of bike rides. The obvious advantage of three wheels is that there is no need to keep balance, but at the same time. Instability of some models when entering a corner. Also, the minus can be attributed. Dimensions and heavy weight of the Trikes.

Having collected a little information about tricycles, we can draw a number of conclusions and answer the key question of the topic: is a tricycle stupid or a blessing? Paradoxically, for some people this device is extremely strange, unnecessary and, perhaps, funny thing. And for others. an assistant in everyday life, entertainment at leisure, the only way to get around and get physical activity.

Based on this, we can safely say that for one audience the tricycle is indeed a blessing, but for another it is nonsense of design engineers. It all depends on the needs and interests of this or that person: someone likes to catch the balance on extreme descents, and someone’s living conditions put in a situation where a tricycle is a necessity. Therefore, it would be wise to respect both opinions, because it can be due to a variety of factors, in which NOT everyone knows.
