Video tribute to the man who invented the Trikke.
The first time I met Trikke inventor Gildo Beleski — also known as “G” — was in 2009, when my wife, Sally and I visited Trikke Tech headquarters in Buellton, California. We had been carving our first T8′s since December, 2008, and were just getting excited about the whole Trikke experience. Little did we know how hooked we would become. We’re now extreme enthusiasts, traveling to various venues to experience the Trikke carve.
Recently, I stopped at Trikke Tech in Buellton again, in order to pick up a few parts and get a little help with some adjustments on my T-12. G was very helpful, showing me things about adjusting my disc brakes, things I hadn’t remembered from the Trikke Academy. Two weeks later, I stopped by on my way to San Diego for the Rosarito-Ensenada Ride. It was then that G gave me several tips that helped me get my T12s and Pon-e’s in better riding shape. Gildo Beleski is one of the most giving and helpful folks I have ever met.
I’m look ing forward to the next time G and I spend time together on our Trikkes, on the carving edge.
