    The True Quest trike is a nice entry level delta style trike. The True Quest has an entry level price with quality that you will find on much more expensive trikes. One of the most loved features is the adjustable padded contourd mesh seat with full back support. The mesh seat can accommodated people up to 300 Lbs. The seat can be easily adjusted by the one quick releases under set seat with out using any tools. The True Quest come with 100 psi low rolling resistance Kenda Kwest tires for an incredibly smooth, fast and effortless ride. The SRAM 21 speed drive train really give you enough gears to to conquer just about any hill you can find. Stopping your trike is performed by a powerful rear-wheel disc brake and a linear-pull front brake. The brake levers come with a parking brake button so you can park on a hill and you have no worries about your trike rolling away. The frame is made of high quality steel that is tig welded together. Though the True Quest is designed with comfort in mind, the trike is perfect for intermediate and casual riders looking for some light touring, commuting or just plain bike path fun. The True Quest come fitted with three 20" wheel and the Quest can easily be upgraded with a front wheel motor kit.

    The True Quest trike is a nice entry level Delta style trike. The Quest

    has many of the same great features as the Sun Seeker recumbent trikes,

    the closet being the Tri-Classic SX from Sun. Many of the parts are the

    same between these two brands and they are both manufactured in Taiwan.

    The bicycle industry is changing quickly, for the past fifteen year

    there has been a push to leave Taiwan and have product made in China

    because of the extra low labor cost. China’s labor cost have been rising

    at 10-15% per year and now China is loosing manufacturing to countries

    like Cambodia. Bicycle manufactures are starting to make a shift away

    from China. Taiwan and Cambodia are looking more favorable. Cambodia

    brings very low labor cost and motivated workers where Taiwan bring high

    quality manufacturing. Companies like Sun, True, ICE, Hp Velotechnik,

    Greenspeed and Terratrike all choose the highroad on quality and choose

    to have there frames manufactured in Taiwan.

    Frame: The frame on the Quest is beautifully

    constructed. The Tig welding on the Cro-Moly frame is contestant and

    smooth, I found no gaps in the welding or imperfections. The frame is

    one of the big differences between the True Quest and Sun Seeker trikes.

    The Quest had a lower step over so getting on and off the Quest will be

    easier than the Sun Seeker for some people. The other difference is

    that we like the way the Quest seat attached over the Sun Seeker. The

    Quest seat attached securely and was easily adjusted by choosing one of

    the series of hole in the trike frame and seat frame.

    Paint: The paint was very nice, the paint was applied

    evenly and consistently with no thin spots or runs. The paint looked to

    be very generously applied. The paint looked to be a baked on enamel

    that has a very nice shine and smoothness finish. The paint job looked

    to be very high quality and should last the life of the trike easily.

    Drive Train: The True Quest comes with a SRAM 21 speed

    drive train and grip type shifters. The stock 21 speed drive train gives

    most riders enough gears to to conquer just about any hill they can

    find.

    Brakes: The brake are fairly typical, True Bicycle used

    a “V” brake for the front and a disc brake for the rear. The both brake

    levers have a parking lock where there is a button on the brake lever

    that you can push and lock the brake in the on position.

    Seat: One of our most loved features is the adjustable

    padded contoured mesh seat with full back support. The Quest seat was

    wide and comfortable and fit our testers well. The seat can be easily

    adjusted forward and backward for different height riders by the one

    quick releases under set seat with out the need for any tools. The seat

    angle has a very wide range of adjust-ability and will suit people well

    who are looking for a very upright seated position. The breathable mesh

    seat fabric can accommodated people up to 300 Lbs. We preferred the way

    the Quest seat attached to the frame over the Sun Seeker but both seat

    attachment were east to use and worked well.

    Ride: The ride between the True Quest and Sun Seeker

    trike are very close. The width and length of both trikes are the same.

    We found the Quest to be very maneuverable and steered easily and

    predictable. The frame on the Quest absorbed the bumps nicely. The seat

    height was a 1/2” higher on the Quest than the Sun Seeker. We did prefer

    the seat style on the Quest over the Sun Seeker it was wide, more

    comfortable and offered more support. The Quest rolled well with the

    stock Kenda Kwest tires which you see used on a lot of brand trikes. We

    did like that the Quest came with three twenty in wheels where the Sun

    Seeker came with two twenty inch rear wheel and a sixteen inch wheel the

    front.

    Accessories: There are lot of options available for the True Quest. True

    Bicycles produce a very nice polycarbonite fender set and a very nice

    rear basket specifically for the Quest. Other popular accessories are

    safety flags, front and rear lights, mirrors, luggage racks and bags.

    According to True Bicycles electric motor kits are are one of the top

    selling add-on sales to the quest.

    Though the True Quest is designed with comfort in mind, the trike is

    perfect for intermediate and casual riders looking for some light

    touring, commuting or just plain bike path fun.

    In Conclusions: Comparing the True Quest to the Sun Seeker both trikes

    are very similar, sharing a lot of the same parts. But the win goes to

    True Bicycles on design, component choices and comfort. True Bicycle and

    Sun both offer high quality tricycle for a reasonable price.

    Pros: A very comfortable seat, easier to get on and off

    of compared to a tadpole style trike, low price, ability to easily add a

    front wheel motor kit.

    Cons: A little less stable than a Tadpole style trike due to the higher seat height and the one wheel in front rather than two.

    Soooo Happy with my Quest trike

    <p>Wow, I never thought riding a bike would be so comfortable. I recommend this trike. The seat is soft and very large measuring 16 X 12 inches. And the pedaling is easy! This is soooo enjoyable. My husband lowered the handlebars for me. I thought the bike looked odd in the pictures, but now that I see it and ride it, I have no regrets. I hope to loose some weight with this bike.</p>

    Love my trike

    Cons:
    <p>Purchase my True Quest form Industrial Bicycles August 2015. I feel Industrial Bicycles sales people an exceptional job at helping me choose the best trike for my needs. Not only did they explain all the features of the tricycle but they recommended some accessories to go along with my tricycle that I would have not thought of. They explained that my trike would come shipped to my home fully assembled in a very large box with all my accessories installed. They spent a lot of time with me on the telephone answering all my questions and I never felt pressured or rushed. I not only would highly recommend this tricycle but I would highly recommend this company as well.</p>
