Review by Adulttricyclereview.com
Bicycle makes their Fold and Go Tricycle in many different variations
of the same trike. The Fold and Go come in a single speed with two hand
brakes or three speed with front Drum Brake and rear Coaster brake.
Both the single speed and three speed versions are available with a
500-750 Watt motor and numerous lithium batteries to choose from. We
tested the Fold and Go with the three speed coaster brake.
True Bicycle Fold and Go adult tricycle is probably the most
practical trike that we have ever tested. The folding mechanism works
superbly. Simply unfold the quick release lever and lift up slightly to
disengage the safety lock. The front of the trike will then fold back
upon itself and the front wheel will be positioned inside the left rear
wheel. The handle bar stem and handlebar can be easily removed by
loosening the quick release lever on the handle bar stem and slipping
the handlebar stem out of the fork. The shifter cable and brake cable
are long enough, so you can place the handlebar inside the basket. The
seat and seat post can either be removed easily or lowered down by
using the quick release seat post clamp.
Frame: The frame is made out of steel that is TIG
welded together. The welds are very nice and consistent looking. True
Bicycle did a very nice job with the hinge, adding a safety engagement
pin and some extra reinforcement inside of the hinge. We liked the
extra gusseting that was welded to the hinge to add extra strength to
the frame. The hinge would be the weakest point of the frame so the
Fold and Go Deluxe has a 215 lbs. rider limit.
Drive Train: The Fold and Go three speed uses a
Sturmey Archer three speed hub with a coaster brake for sure stopping.
The Sturmey Archer model SRC3 hub is made of aluminum to help keep the
weight down. The gearing seemed to be just right, not too easy or not
too hard and the gears are spaced a good amount apart. The rear axle is
coupled with four high quality sealed bearings along with two sealed
bearings in the non drive wheel. The chain is a standard 1/2 x 1/8 that
you can find at any bike shop. The crank is a simple one piece design
with a traditional American bottom bracket.
Folding trikes are meant to be light and versatile. The Fold and Go is
both of these. The short wheelbase of the folding trike, along with the
smaller 20″ wheel make the trike perfect for tight areas. One area
that we thought the extra maneuverability would be great, at is street
fairs or group outing. Folding trikes are perfect for shorter rides. If
you want to go say five miles or more at a time, you might be better
served by a recumbent trike that folds, but for short rides, the Fold
and Go is close to perfect.
Summary: The Fold and Go is perfect for people who
wish to transport their tricycle often and need a convenient folding
tricycle that can be stored in a small space. The low step through
frame makes this tricycle ideal for senior citizens, mobility
challenged people, and people who have balance issues. The Fold and Go
is very versatile and can accommodate everyone from kids to
grandparents. Not only is the Fold and Go perfect for shorter riders it
is ideal for people between 4’-6’’ and 6’-0’’. It weighs only 52 lbs.
Pros: Far superior quality to all the other folding trikes in our review.
Cons: Something I would not want to ride for twenty miles at one time but other than that I think the trike is perfect.
