    Frequently Asked Questions About Ricksycle

    The Ricksycle is truly one of the most unique cycles on the market today. First introduced in 2004, Ricksycle has become an extremely popular cycle. The Ricksycle are not only fun for family recreation, but also a solution for many couples with special riding needs. This self-balancing cycle is also ideal for resorts, rental businesses, personal use, special needs use or other special applications where fun and ease of use is a priority.

    Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the Ricksycle:

    Do Both Riders Have to Pedal?

    Not necessarily. Ricksycle features two independent power trains. In other words, each rider powers the wheels on their own side. Therefore, as long as one person pedals, the tricycle is driven in the same way as on single seat adult trikes. One wheel can power the tricycle. Consequently each rider can pedal the Ricksycle either alone or together with their partner. This is particularly important in a case where one rider is physically unable to actively pedal.

    Do both cranks (pedals) turn simultaneously (in cadence) as is the case with a tandem bicycle?

    Absolutely not. Each rider pedals at their own rate. When you are not pedaling on your side, your pedals do not turn. Pedal when you want at your own pace. However, in the case of physical therapy where you way wish to force one rider's pedals to turn all the time, this can easily be accomplished. Inquire at the time you order.

    Is the Ricksycle available with different gearing?

    Yes. The Ricksycle come with a standard mountain bike twenty one speed drive train. Each rider controls their own gear shifter. This is a very unique feature of the Ricksycle as each rider selects their gear that they are most comfortable using. This is important because in most cases riders have different pedaling strength and abilities. The Ricksycle is also available with and internal twelve speed hub.

    How Do You Stop The Ricksycle?

    The Ricksycle has 3 independent brakes for sure, safe stops. Either rider can stop the cycle by simply using there hand brake or the captain can stop the tricycle using the hand brake located on the steering stick. The brake lever also has a parking brake feature. Simply push a button on the lever and the parking brake is engaged. This is particularly useful when parking the cycle on a slight incline or also simply to prevent it from rolling when getting on or off the trike. You will also appreciate the fact that the rear brakes are disc brakes fore sure stopping in wet conditions, so should you get caught in an unexpected rain shower, your Ricksycle will still perform reliably and safely.

    How Do You Steer The Ricksycle?

    Steering is easy and natural with our steering stick system. Simply push the stick forward to turn left and pull the stick back to turn right. Normally one rider is designated as "The Captain" and controls the stick. This can be accomplished from either seat.

    Can Different Size Riders Ride Together?

    Certainly. Each side of the frame is independently adjustable without the need for tools. Unlike most vehicles with a single bench the seat is independently adjustable. The Ricksycle allows for each rider to set the seat for their own comfort level. In most cases, the Ricksycle is appropriate for riders from 4?11" to 6?3". Approximately 24" Inseam.

    What Seating Options are Available?

    The seats on the Ricksycle is a heavy duty canvas. We also offer a special need seat which attaches to the stock seat and can be easily removed.

    Is the Ricksycle Appropriate for Active Seniors?

    No doubt about it. Today more than ever people recognize the benefits of aerobic exercise. Seniors are more aware of this than most as their doctors are urging them to stay active to stay young. Seniors are seeking safe, low impact activities. They also want to have fun! Riding side by side with a companion is not only good for physical activity but also provides a stimulating, social experience.

    Is the Ricksycle Suitable for Children to Ride?

    The Ricksycle is a true family vehicle. Since the frame adjust so easily the Ricksycle can easily adjusted to most size riders. (from pre-teen to super senior). However, the captain of the Ricksycle should be a responsible adult. Since seating is side by side, riders can truly share the experience. Parents can bond with their children from generation to generation. With the optional seatbelt, even smaller children can be strapped in to the seat and be taken for a ride.

    Can People with Physical Disabilities Ride the Ricksycle?

    Since our introduction of the Ricksycle back in 2004, we have seen and heard of so many wonderful uses of the cycle for special needs situations. In fact, this has been so rewarding to us as we have received so may letters, e-mails and other correspondence telling us just how wonderful the Ricksycle has been for special needs riders. First, since the Ricksycle has independent pedals systems, as long as there is one able bodied rider, the cycle can be useful. Physical Therapists has found the Ricksycle to be ideal for developing motor skills and other therapeutic activities. Since the seating is side by side, monitoring and communicating with the special needs rider is easy, safe and convenient. The Ricksycle has proven useful for those with balance problems, motor skills challenges, strength issues and more. These cycles are ideal for visually impaired riders as they can share the riding experience with the sighted partners. Many leading institutions now use our Ricksycle for physical therapy, occupational therapy, coordination training and the like.

    Seeing the smiles of many special people who have benefited from riding our cycles is a wonderful reward for all involved.

    Where Can the Ricksycle Trike be Ridden?

    The Ricksycle is designed for use on paved or smooth hard-pack surfaces. The overall width is 45", so plan your routes accordingly. As is the case with all adult trikes, you will want to ride on relatively flat areas. If you wish to ride in hilly areas, you may wish to consider our electric power assist options. (see below). Today, there are so many wonderful trails and paths that have been created for cycling. Get out and enjoy yourself. Naturally all rules for safety should be obeyed.

    Can the Team Ricksycle be Motorized?

    Yes. We currently offer a battery operated electric drive system for the Ricksycle. This Hub engine is integrated into the rear wheel and is operated by a spring-loaded thumb throttle. This powerful system is ideal for hill climbing, long rides or simply for those who have limited pedaling capacity.

    Love our Trike

    <p>We are in Love with our Ricksycle! There is no other trike on the market that does what the Ricksycle does. We need a trike that would accommodate two riders side by side and a trike that we could disassembled for transportation. The Ricksycle is the only trike of it’s type on the market that does both. So here are some of the things that we really love about our Ricksycle. Can easily be disassembled for transportation, is made of light weight aluminum, 21 speed where other trike were limited to 3 speeds, and some well thought out Special Needs accessories. This trike can be easily assemble and disassembled by anyone and I mean anyone it is just so easy to work with.</p>

    Easily transportable for our family

    <p>I highly recommend this trike! We have a special needs teenager that needed exercise and is incapable of riding a tricycle by themselves. We did quite a bit of research and when we found the Ricksycle it was perfect for our needs. We looked at other trikes for two people but none of them could be disassembled for transportation. We also live in an area with some small hill that we needed to get up. The other trikes we looked at were single speed or three speed and we were worried we would not be able to make it up the hills. Our Ricksycle is twenty one speed and we have plenty of easy pedaling gears so going up hill is not problem. The trike is easy to take apart and put back together. We load it up in our station wagon and take it to the Metro Park with our family for weekend bike rides.</p>
