Tricycles are quite handy for people who are not good at balancing; they are also good for people with weaker back muscles. In today’s market, tricycles are actually marketed as an alternative type of transportation for short distances, as opposed to driving cars or taking the bus. For this reason, many tricycles are equipped with baskets for heavy belonging and long handlebars for added comfort. At higher tiers, aluminum frames can also be often seen to reduce the frame weight and allow for faster accelerations.
Where Can We Buy Tricycles For Adults
There are many stores that sell tricycles. Whether local or online, they are very common and it should not be hard to find an adult tricycle for sale. For the online approach, the best bet is through reputable e-commerce stores such as Amazon and specialty stores such as PerformanceBicycle. In our experiences most online retailers will be able to ship and deliver your product within a week and a half’s time. If you are using Amazon, some products may be eligible for Amazon Prime which will automatically upgrades all your eligible purchases to two-day shipping. In some cases, the person delivering the bikes may also help you with installation.
Getting Used Tricycles Online
Many websites such as eBay and Craigslist also allow you to list your tricycles online for sale. You can search these websites for models that fit your budget, as well as list specific specifications to refine your search results. The height of the bike, the length of the handlebars, and the size of the wheel are all factors that you should consider. Be sure to also inspect each photo carefully and request additional photos if you suspect the seller is trying to hide something. Never buy from any listing without photos attached.
Some websites also allow you to search for product located in specific areas. For example, if either you or the seller doesn’t have a car, you are better off searching for sellers or bike shops within 30 miles. Any more and the average biker will be exhausted after getting home. If you normally don’t exercise, try looking for shops within 15 miles.
Sometimes, tricycles for kids may show up in your search results. Do know that tricycles designed for adults versus those designed for kids have different specifications – most commonly in frame and wheel size. Don’t get these sizes mixed up with mountain or road bikes, they are different!
Whenever you find a promising tricycle, don’t get too excited! Check out the price, specification, condition, as well as the profile of the seller to make sure that the bike is in the condition that you want or can accept. Also, if possible, test ride the bicycle. The riding experience may not be the one that you are looking for. The last thing you would want to do is request a refund from Craigslist (mind you, they are only a directory and are not responsible for transactions that happen through their site)!
