Tricycle Conversion (You Choose your bike)
Just bolt it on where your back wheel was, convert your chain to the proper length and you have your very own 3-wheeled stability. We provide the wheels complete with specially built aluminum hubs , rims (your choice of size), tires and tubes, triangulation stays, bolts and drive for the conversion. If you chose a variable drive, it will help train the rider so you can ride a multi-speed system if you can't to begin with. To get a more complete description of what a variable drive will do, please see the information on our regular drives information.
If you have a multi-speed freewheel derailleur bike and can handle the pedaling, we will provide the correct hub for the conversion. If your multi-speed bike uses a cassette you will have to buy a freewheel system.
Choosing a Base Bike for Conversion
Make sure the bike
you choose is comfortable in all respects and that the only
problem you have is balance. If your bike can be ridden, except
the training wheels are not working, then a conversion system may
be what you need. Any size bike will work for the conversion, all
that is needed is the front wheel size so that we can match it for
the conversion. As well the drop-out (places where the wheel axel
fits) should be nearly horizontal and open towards the rear of the
bike. Accommodations can usually be made with other drop-out types
but the horizontal ones work most easily. The spread of the rear
forks should be about 136mm or 5 5/16 inches. You will need
shims (or washers) if the bike you choose does not match these
measurements. Forks can be compressed or expanded instead, if you
like. A handlebar riser can be provided if needed.
