Tricycle Comfort from Belize Bikes

2015_hubcity_trike_1

We just finished assembling this trike for a customer and while it was still in the shop it really grabs a lot of attention.  After talking with the customer she explained that as she is getting older and her hip issue is getting a little worse therefore she needed something stable, easier on the body and that still allowed her to get out and enjoy riding.  The Comfort Tri-Rider from Belize Bicycles was what she chose. As we have an aging population, trikes are gaining popularity.  Trikes allow you to go as slow as you please without loosing balance.  There are some very comfortable designs which keep you in an upright riding position which is easier on the back, butt, and hands.  Modern trike frames are quite skookum which means they can accommodate heaver weights.  With a lot of basket space there is room for your groceries, your dog, and most other treasures you want to haul along. We order our trikes from a company based in Montreal called Belize Bikes.  There are many electric versions too.  We have installed electric kits on a few trikes and their owners seem very pleased with the results.
