Service was not what I would expect on such a nice bicycle.

from Purchased in Texas, live in Canada

About Me

Comments:

The ride is good, the seat is comfy. I didn't get gears and it handles well until the grade becomes uphill, then there is the likely hood that you will be walking it. My hand grips split after 3 months and when I approached the Sun bikes about a replacement, they were adamant that they would not replace them as they were not warranty items...OK but 3 months later! My bike is cleaned and waxed after usage and kept covered and indoors...I've never had a grip deteriorate so quickly. Now that is poor service....

    Comments:

    I checked the travel distance of the SUN traditional tricycle with 24" wheels. It moves 136" for each rotation of the pedals. I agree with the comments that this trike cannot go uphill as its travel distance is much larger than 80". Even the 5 speed model at the lowest gear has a travel distance of 85" that is marginally adequate to go up hill. To boost the power by 44%, you may reduce the size of the chain gear from 36T to 25T. It reduces the travel distance to 59". it should go up hill like a tractor. I have done it on two of my single speed trikes to make their travel distances about 80" and it works. A bicycle shop may charge you around $30 labor plus the sprocket cost (around $30) if you could not change it yourself.

      Comments:

      This trike is great on flat pavement. If you have hills, you will need either a front electric hub motor, or a rear engine kit. The 3 speed Nexus Internal Hub Makes the trike more useable, but still not on hills!

      Comments:

      I like this bike and it's design is beautiful. I have a lot of people ask me about it. I got it because I have a medical condition that makes falls dangerous, and it is sturdy and safe. Maybe too sturdy. My only complaint is that this bike is SO heavy that the only way to ride it is to leave my house and ride around the neighborhood avoiding hills - because I cannot get this thing up a hill! I think most people would need a motor to get up even an average hill, and unfortunately I live at the top of a hill, so it's kind of embarrassing to have to get off my trike and walk it up hill to get home. Also it is impossible to take it anywhere unless you have some kind of trailer - it is not portable. It's good for small grocery runs and taking my small dog for a spin - he loves the basket! For me this trike is more of a utility vehicle, and not recreational since I can't go far with needing to avoiding hills.

        I cannot fall, so I need the stability of a third wheel. This bike is the greatest thing for me. Love it!
