The Fold and Go Three Wheel Bike is a portable adult tricycle designed for persons with limited mobility or balance disabilities to transport themselves using a tricycle. Ideal for individuals 4 feet 6 inches to 6 feet tall. Low "step through" frame. Large rear basket included. Available in 4 models.
Single Speed - Standard three wheel bike. - Comes with two hand brakes, the front brake (left hand lever) is a caliper type that clamps down on the side of the rim. The rear brake is a band brake that stops the rear wheel. It is operated by the right hand lever.
Three Speed - The standard three wheel bike with added gears.
The front wheel has a drum brake in the center of the front wheel operated by the left hand lever*. The drum brake hub is made of aluminum and is very reliable. The braking is slightly slower than the front caliper brake on the single speed.
*Note: The front wheel brake cables and lever can be switched to the right handlebar.
The Rear Brake is a coaster brake style that is operated by pedaling backwards about a quarter turn.The brake is located inside the rear hub which also houses the three speed mechanism.
The coaster brake is quite capable of stopping the trike, without the use of the front drum brake. The trike can also be stopped by using the front drum brake without the use of the coaster brakes.
Single Speed Electric - The braking system is the same as the single speed above.
Three Speed Electric - Three speeds plus the electric motor.
The same rear coaster brakes as the Three Speed above. The front wheel has a caliper brake to the addition of the electric front hub motor. This front brake is operated with the left hand lever.
Electric Bicycle Motor:
Used on both the Single Speed Electric Trike and the Three Speed Electric Trike.
Average speed is 10 miles per hour depending the terrain (flat versus hills), the weight of the rider and if the rider is pedaling at the same time. Speed is controlled by pressing a lever on the throttle with your thumb. Average battery life while running is 1.5 hours, the potential time is governed by the same variables above. Bicycle motors speed is set to a maximum speed of 20 miles per hour by law.
An electric motor can be added at a later time for either the non electric single speed or the three speed tricycle.
Battery needs to be charged after each use.
- Note: All of the bicycles parts have available replacement parts.
