5.0 out of 5 stars | Takes you back to your childhood
As a neighborhood we bought 3 of these to do a 4th of July trike race. When those 3 showed up and we got to experience them, we started buying more! We quickly went to 5, then 7.....now we are at 11! We LOVE them. They are sturdy enough for a 6'4 260 lbs man, safe enough for almost anyone to ride, drift easier than we anticipated and draw so many smiles and laughs that it truly takes you back to your childhood. The ONLY bummer is the brakes wore out on every unit after their 2nd day of hard riding (not a problem for us, we just bought schimano brakes and swapped them out). However, even with this setback, the trikes are so much fun that there was no way they were getting anything but 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great Trike for Special Needs Kids
This Trike was a tiny too big for my son (55") but with a couple inexpensive adjustments it worked out very well. He's autistic and has a hard time riding regular bikes and he grew out of his big wheel long ago. It seems extremely sturdy and able to hold a lot of weight. Here's the small adjustments: 1. Moved the seat all the way forward so it's secured just by two bolts. This gives about a half an inch more reach to the pedals. 2. Bungied down two kitchen chair cushions to help reach the handle bars. Just for added fun a bell and a cooler bag for snacks and drinks. Would be nice to have an option for regular tires on the back as opposed to only the plastic drift tires.

4.0 out of 5 stars | Excellent value
If you put a lot of mileage on the wheels, put pvc sleeves around wheels to prolong life of the wheel

5.0 out of 5 stars | Great accommodation for special needs teens who want wheels!
I have 2 Autistic teens who have never been able to master a 2 wheeled bike. They love this trike and I love to watch them ride it up and down our long paved drive and drift around the turn. This is one of the few things they will do outside and I hope they keep it up this summer!

5.0 out of 5 stars | This thing is awesome!
Super easy to put together and so fun to ride! I bought this for my 10 year son's birthday. It arrived before he got home for school so he was super surprised. I love Amazon prime. It's big. My son and I are about the same size (5ft) and you couldn't be much shorter to ride this comfortably. The seat can be adjusted a little further back for taller ppl. I don't think anything about this trike is cheap but I have always been a razor fan. I'm seriously thinking about getting one for myself to go cruising with my boys and I'm a 35 yr old mom! We recently bought a green machine... It's got nothing on this trike! Buy this!

5.0 out of 5 stars | Like Reliving My Youth
A little surprised there aren't already reviews of this product here, so here's mine. My amazing wife bought this for me for my birthday. My wife loves me. She knows how much I miss those childhood days of riding around in a Big Wheel(tm). I reminisced a lot while putting together our daughter's new Big Wheel(tm). Lo and behold, someone makes a Big Wheel(tm) that even adults can ride! Now I can go riding right along with my daughter, pulling off the same fun stunts... and then some! First and foremost, this thing is QUALITY! Smooth bearings, great welds, fantastic paint job, and very solid overall. My tools slipped a couple times while putting it together, and there wasn't any mark on the paint as a result. I'm really impressed. Speaking of tools, most of the ones you'll need are included, minus one wrench for 10mm bolts. I'm an avid cyclist, I've bought brand new high-end bikes and built my own from scratch using expensive components, and the quality of this little trike really amazed me. I had it all put together in less than 30 minutes without ever looking at the instructions. Mind you, I did put the rear end on upside down :) But I caught that mistake before taking it out for its first spin. And I do mean SPIN! After the initial period getting used to the dynamics of fighting my pedaling feet with my arms, I was able to take off down the driveway at frightening speed, turn the handlebars... and skid into a U-turn before I realized what was happening! WHAT A THRILL!!! I repeated this feat over and over again, and it didn't get old. Then, despite the fact that it was 9:30pm, pitch black outside and cold (December in Vermont), I decided to take the trike for a ride around the block. And this is where the trike truly shined... and where I struggled a bit. Just cruising down the road was easy enough, although it's a bit of a workout for both the legs and the arms. Going downhill is where this trike really comes into its own. It takes very little pedaling to keep the speed up, and it's super easy to toss the rear end into a long, controlled skid around bends. The front tire is very grippy, which lends a lot of control. As long as you've got the front wheel pointed where you want to go, the rest of the trike *should* follow. Just keep in mind you're occupying a lot of space when you're sliding. Going uphill is a different story. That's just a lot of hard pedaling and straining of the arms. Getting any kind of speed takes a lot of effort, and there really isn't much you can do as far as stunts. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fun ride. But after the thrills of the downhills, the uphills by comparison feel like a bit of a... downer (pun intended). Now for the best part... I got this for my 39th birthday. I'm 6'1" tall and weigh just over 220 pounds. I thought my Big Wheel(tm) days were 30 years gone, yet here I am loving it all over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars | The Frame Itself Should Be $100!!
I am impressed! You get quite a bit for around $100. As I searched online, I found numerous pictures and videos of people modding these, adding accessories, and even installing go-kart rear ends. All you really need is the frame. For those who couldn't find new rear wheels, just take a look online/Google and you'll find some awesome replacements. Heck, the instructions tell you where you can get replacements. As for the brakes.......well, they are made of very soft material and will grab the rim tightly. This may cause some TERRIBLE brake squeaking. All I did was spray a little wd-40 on the pads and the problem was solved. Chances are, you may need to buy some stiffer pads. Other than that, I am having a blast. Oh, one more thing, you can even mount a Bluetooth speaker to the front so you can jam out!

1.0 out of 5 stars | Broke in 1 week, no replacement parts available
I bought this for my son for Christmas (2018) and in only 4 days the rear wheel already broke after a few times using it. I was expecting some damage to the wheel to happen but after maybe a few months, not days. I tried to find replacement wheels but they are out of stock and no indication of when they will be available. Found a web page that will have some only available by March 2019. Still waiting for a response from Razor.
