What is it?

The trikke (pronounced "trike") is a small human powered, three-wheeled cambering vehicle that utilizes conservation of angular momentum to allow a rider to propel forward. The rider alternates leaning side-to-side to move forwards. The area needed to move forward is roughly the width of a downtown sidewalk (1-1.5 m).

A rider may reach speeds of up to 18 mph (29 km/h) on flat ground. It can be used downhill or a level surface. It can move uphill though doing so requires a substantial amount of effort. The whole body needs to be used in a synchronised movement.


If you're still not sure what it is, look at the Avatar of celia....

sounds cheesy indeed. i've never seen an ad on TV -- in fact i never even knew about this bike until my boyfriend gave me one for Valentine's. now we both ride together -- i'm still getting the hang of it and getting over a slight fear of riding so oddly!
