What colours does the Trio-bikes come in?
All our bikes comes with a black frame and a red hood and red blanket.
How do I protect the trishaw?
We recommend to buy a cover that is big enough for the trishaw. It could be that some covers for motorbikes fit. Check the measurements on the information pages.
Other than that it is important that the bikes is stored under a roof and if possible in a closed garage. If you really want the trishaw to live under the best conditions, you should keep it inside where it is also warm all year around. That way it will also attract some attention.
Can you get a logo on the Bike?
The bikes come with a Cycling Without Age sticker on each side of the sitting box with your city’s name on it. We cannot print logos on the bike or make special stickers. You are welcome to do so. Logos of sponsors and so on should be put on the back side of the sitting box.
How much is the approximate annual maintenance costs?
We recommend the bikes to have a first check after 1 month. 1-2 hours at a mechanic should be about 70-140 EUR. The bolts and rims need to be adjusted. Repair and maintenance would be around
Running costs are really down to repair and maintenance, as well as additional batteries every 2 years. I would estimate £3-400 a year to regular maintenance.
Once you are pedaling and have set the assist level of the display panel (say, for example, to assist level 2), you can instantly increase the assist level to level 5 by turning the controller. This helps if you come to a hill, for example, and find it awkward to push the arrow upward on the display panel. But again, that assist level only works if you are pedaling the trishaw. If you already have the assist on level 5 you dont get any help from the power boost when turning the throttle.
How does the throttle work on a Triobike 500W?
It works the same way as on a motor bike. When you turn the throttle the assist will help you move.
Where do I find the frame number?
On the Triobike it is on the frame at the right front wheel. You can see it if you look “through” the spokes.
On the Nihola it is on the frame going down under the pilot seat.
