Three Wheel Bikes

Who said kids should have all the fun when it comes to getting out and getting active? It's time for adults to remember there's plenty of health benefits in it for them too by getting out of the house.

A great way to get a good workout is to consider the wide world of three wheeled bikes, often called adult tricycles or trikes.

While most people immediately think of a little kid's toy, this is far from the truth in reality.

In fact, using a three wheel bicycle actually takes a lot more energy than a regular bicycle. It is a definitely calorie burning activity that is perfect for the adult looking to trim down the waistline doing a fun activity.

After all, the more fun a weight loss activity is, the more likely it will be that you actually stick to it. There's a few things to keep in mind when looking into your options to purchase a 3 wheel bike.

First, decide on the design of the three wheeled bike that you want. There's two main designs: tadpole and delta. With the tadpole design, the two wheels are in front and the lone wheel is in the bed. In the delta design, this position is reversed — the lone wheel in the front and the two wheels in the back. For beginners, the tadpole design can be a better match.

A discussion on 3 wheel bicycle design is not complete without a mention about recumbent trikes, which are designed to have the rider laying back rather than leaning forward. This is a perfect fit for people looking for a good challenging workout without causing further stress and strain on their back.

A recumbent design can also be safer, since it is inherently lower to the ground than traditional design types. In addition, the recumbent design on the 3 wheeled bikes allows the rider to fully take in the scenery around them, making it perfect for long trails and scenic tours.

Next, you'll want to look through the selection of three wheeled bikes for one that comes with a good owner's manual and instructions. Since you'll need to order and have the machine sent to your house, some assembly will definitely be required.

As long as you follow the instructions, you should have no problem, though you can also consider having a nearby bike shop assemble the bike for a small fee.

Warranty is another consideration you'll need to make when thinking about purchasing any trike. Three wheel bikes are designed to last a long time, but that doesn't mean that things can't happen in the short term. 

It's important to have all the warranty information at a glance so that if something needs to be repaired, it can be handled quickly without cutting into your daily schedule too much.

The freedom of moving fast down a hill or rolling up and down hills on a good 3 wheeled bicycle is well worth the research you need to do in order to make sure you make the right investment of your time and money.

With the tips in this guide, you should have no problem wading through the selection of three wheeled bikes to find one that's perfect for you.
