The first step toward becoming a successful Trikke rider is making sure all of your carving vehicle’s parts are assembled correctly. Otherwise, you may end up wondering why your three-wheel wonder isn’t taking you to new heights of exercise ecstasy.
Case and point: Sue Thompson, Delaware rider who labored for a year on a mis-assembled T8, until her story appeared in TrikkeWorld and led to a series of events that helped her turn things around, quite literally.
Sue’s one happy carver now. “I am feeling so released,” she wrote in the comments section of her follow-up story.
So how can others avoid Sue’s year of mis-assembled misery and skip ahead to feeling released?
“The best thing a person can do to make sure they are assembling their Trikke CV properly is to read the manual,” says John Simpson, Trikke Tech CEO.
For those who need more visual aids, carve to the Assembly Videos playlist on the TrikkeWorld YouTube channel, where you’ll find three clips by the folks who assemble and maintain TrikkeWorld’s Trikkes, SouthBay Trikke.
In the videos, Trikke Andy, who also serves as the technical director of the Trikke Academy, takes you through the process of assembling three of Trikke’s human-powered models, the T7, T8 and T12. In addition, there’s a quick clip where he and fellow SBT’er Sean Tice set up an electric Pon-e.
Manual or videos, or both, make sure you assemble your Trikke correctly. It could make all the difference in your journey to exercise ecstasy.
