Mother I purchased a T67 for myself & my son, also purchased 2 smaller T5 for my twins. I thought that we all needed to stop being couch potatoes & become more active. When I saw the infomercial on late night TV I got inspired to make a major purchase(I am a single mother) by purchasing all 4 Trikkes for my family. The kids really took to it! For myself, I seem to only be able to make the Trikke go on a downward slope. I guess I just haven't got the strength yet being mostly inactive since I broke my ankle 6 years ago. It is kind of scary for me to get on, but once I start, it is so fun! Hopefully, I will meet up with someone here in Hawaii who can help me to master getting up enough momentum to even possibly go up an incline. This is a great product. My twins already wore down the rear tires with the constant riding & all the hills we have in our neighborhood. I am going to have to save up to have them replaced, because the tires are lopsided from pressing on the breaks while going down hill on a turn. Oh well, live & learn! Great product, I promise!!!
Mrs My son and I like it but because we have asphault roads, it is hard to really get going with it.

Adicted Rider I am very adicted to the T67. I rarely ever ride my bike or skateboard anymore. But the only problem is that every time that I go over to my friends house, almost the entire neighborhood wants to ride it. They say how much is it and I tell them that it is only $189.99. Already I have learned how to gring and jump. If I had to part with it for one minute, Iwould go crazy!

mom I own an older T8 with the poly wheels. I find it more difficult to ride on typical road surfaces than the air wheels. On smooth concrete it is fine, but who has smooth concrete for roads? The frame is also pretty light for carving more aggressively. The front wheel has a tendency to pop up. I need to move up to another model.

Addict I have never had so much fun while getting excercise. I can't wait to jump on my Trikke after work. I am definately getting my money out of it... unlike all my other excercise equipment I have purchased over the years. Thank you!!

Ms I first got the T5 Kids for my daughter and she loves it! A little while after I purchased the T67 for me so I could ride with her and I love it! It is a great workout as well. I know this is a fun activity we can do together that will help keep us in shape.
P.S. My dad wants one now :) so it is great for any age (he is 59)!

LIghtening Speed There is nothing like the awesome experinece of flying along side our beautiful lake in my community on my trusty trikke! The thrill of spped is enhanced knowing that I am getting an all over body work out while having fun!
And the best part? It's not hard to learn, after a little practice, I start to feel like a pro rider and find that carving along the paved path along wtih the rollerbladers and bikers is more than just a work out--it's a life experience that I cherish and enjoy immensely. I am looking forward to the day when I can own a T8 air and then, look out world, here I come! Thanks trikke for giving this grandma of 4 a new lease on life, with good exercise that feels like sheer fun!

Mrs. Definitely gives a total body workout. I like how it's not heavy and how easy it is to transport. Had a little trouble getting started, but am doing better. I wanted to learn to use this so I am able to ride with my grandchildren when they bike.

It's been years since I saw it the first time So there was an advertisment on tv years ago, I was realy inrigued and wanted one for fitness and weight loss purposes with a large dose of fun so it will motivate me to keep on doing it. Shortly after for whatever reason the tv advertisement vanished and I never saw them in stores?! Finally I found one not long ago, it's an old T6, can't say the year but I believe it's one of the firs ones. Bought it in a second hand store, it was overpriced but I had no idea, I took it home right there and than without investif=gating any further. Ever since I took it appart, cleaned it, lubricate in all the required places, trikketalk helped with that, put it back together again. I'm trying to learn how to use it without too much success yet, not loosing hope. The back weels were quite worn and maybe that's why I'm not advancing very fast. I'm spending a lot of time on the Net trying to find out everything there is to know about Trikke. Since I'm 6'5" I didn't know that T6 was not for me before reading on it on the Net. I realised that I actualy need a T12 or at least a T8 Air. I'm sitting down all day, working in a computer environment and in desperate need of exercise, I think that if it's fun I'll do it. Any way I can't aford to buy a new T12 or T8, for that matter and this contest is just what I need, if I win it might just save my life. If not I'll keep on looking for a used one at a price that I can aford on ebay and keep trying to learn how to advance with my T6. I rely love the idea that one day I'll be able to ride one of these machines of yours that fascinate me so...
Mrs. Love my Trikke. Use it for exercise and it fits my needs as a 63 year old who enjoys riding instead of walking. Much more fun than my bicycle, allowing my body to have more flexibility. My grandkids also enjoy the Trikke very much.

HR Asst. I bought the Trikke T67 for my 7 Year old son. It is the prefect size for him. He really loves it and is getting better and better at riding it. The only thing I wish it had was the abitity to put Air Tires on it. The T78 Air is a little to big for him, but the air tire on the T67 would be perfect. Other than that, I can say this is the funnest excerice I have done and I can ride the T67 also! Thanks for an excelent product!
Purchasing/Inventory I have a T67. I am a very aggressive rider, so when I start carving the front wheel tends to slide out. I keep telling my self that I should of got one with the air tires. I really using my trikke, cause I get a real good workout. And boy does it really turn heads when I'm out doing my thing. This is One investment that I can't regret making. It's all about getting healthy. Thanks for the RIDE

owner I am still trying to get use to making it work, but my kids like it alot. My youngest daughter said that she had lost 5 lbs. using it and my oldest son, who is a huge skateboard freak since he was 12, he is now 33 is nuts about it. I work 40 hours a week and got to school in the evening 3 times a week for 4 hours each, that is why I have not spent time with it. But that will change come this summer. I will be done with college and plan to get with it! I like how easy it is to store it and handle it. Super nice! I'm glad I got it. Thanks for a great product.

Millwright I have ejoyed my Trikke very much ! It is still teaching me a few tricks and has only bucked me off once (my own fault )! What a good workout going uphill ! I really like traveling down the bikepath and watching everyone scatter as I come weaving along seemingly in total control !
Academic Advisor i have not picked up on riding technique as quickly as i would have liked, i am still not good at it, it has actually been quite difficult, it's a wonderful feeling when i can actually get everything working well together and I am riding well, but it doesn't last and i end up walking it more than riding it, i still like it and i will keep trying and hopefully will eventually be able to ride for hours at a time.

Office Manager Love it. Purchased last year for my husband & myself. We enjoy the workout together. Everyone stops us to ask ?s about it. We both lost weight & feel great. I have back problems & it's been great to be able to excersize w/out hurting my back in the process. We do wish we could get bigger wheals for it.

Disappointed Love my trikke. Looking for a way to exercise because of diabetes and arthritis but sadly have not been able to find a surface smooth enough for the T67. I didn't realize at the time that this trikke can not be upgraded to better wheels. Thus disappointed that I can't use it.

Mrs. I love to ride my trike once I completely got the hang of it. I have had several other people try it and really like it. I wish I had got the one with bigger tires so I could ride on the asphalt road close to home. My drive has more inclines than I thought and is hard to ride on. I enjoy the workout.

fun workouts What I like most about my Trikke is getting a great workout that is more fun than work. It's easier on my knees than a bicycle. My only problem is that all the kids in the neighborhood want a turn.
Mrs I bought one of these almost two years ago, I loved even though it was not the perfect size for me (I needed something larger). My nephew fell in love with it so much that I decided to give to him. He was gaining weight , my sister was worried about him getting bigger and this was the perfect solution for him on getting exercise. He just flies !!! I would love to buy another one for me soon!
t67 I would love my Trikke but the clip in the handlebar broke when we were putting it together and it has been very hard to get a replacement. It is difficult to ride on the street, better on the sidewalk. I wish it could be fitted with larger wheels. I wish I had purchased the t78 instead. I love the way I can exercise with my Trikke.

The T67cs is a great place to get your first feel of the fluid, Trikke carving motion. A mid-size durable three wheel scooter, steel frame with adjustable handlebar height allows riders 8 years and up to ride with confidence on this model. Learning comes quicker on the T67cs by use of polyurethane wheels on smooth surfaces giving less than air pressured tires. The hard wheels with direct ground contact allows new riders to find the 'Sweet Spot' of turning mechanincs faster. You or your kid will discover new fun and fitness. (All major muscle groups engage while riding a Trikke carving vehicle). The T67cs is also an exceptional value being convertible; allowing you to upgrade the wheels to larger polyurethane or air tires as your skills progress. Adjustable handlebar height and pitch gives you the ability to continually grow with this ultimate carving vehicle. You can also fold down the frame with the trigger lever to easily store or transport.
– For bigger kids or adults – Poly wheels give a intuitive response – Dual rear independent brakes – 7" poly wheel front, 6" poly wheels back – Convertible to all 8.5 Air tires or larger Polys – Durable Steel frame – 2 color options available – Foladble frame with trigger levers
