You some basics: You can do it!
If you are the first time as an adult on the tricycle and have put in steering feel that the tricycle pulling to the right or left, it’s not tragic. They share the problem with 50% of the people who ride a bicycle otherwise, or have at some point down. Regardless of age or handicap. You should also know the following: As a small child you will certainly ever driven tricycle and were able to without problems. Then came probably a pretty painful exercise of the two-phase cycling. You had to steer instead of the steering yoke, learn to steer by shifting your weight. This process you will also hinbekommen reversed again! And without bruises because a tricycle overturns not so simple. You need to steer the tricycle move exclusively to the steering yoke and not tilt the upper body to the side. After all, if you are for example tend to the right to go to the right (see Figure 3), you automatically pull the left arm as the handlebars, the bear left. So just go in the opposite direction in which you want. To avoid this, you need to keep your upper body upright only. That’s it.
To experience success, it would be good if you can take the tricycle and an assistant, first to a larger space to practice without obstacles. Above all, do not put yourself under pressure and are satisfied with small improvements may initially. It is matter of practice, and is ultimately implemented in the head.
First make the tricycle on a flat surface and tighten the parking brake. You should now be set on the tricycle your body measurements. That is, if you sit on the saddle, keep both hands on the handlebars, you should have bent the upper body about (about 10 °) to the front. The impact you can by adjusting the handlebar height and angle, as well as by the Sattelklobenposition. The saddle height to be adjusted so that when the pedal has reached the lower point, the leg is extended almost completely (s.Bild2). All screws from a tricycle must be tight and tune the tire pressure must (See instructions).
Now you tend to exercise and build confidence to go without, with the parking brake several times the upper body to the right and far left (s.Bild3). You will soon notice how stable is the tricycle. But also note, on a sloped surface or in rapid cornering, the steadiness and your limits.
Now ask a second person to stand before the tricycle and at low speed (1st gear) with the handlebars to hold, so you can go in the desired direction (Figure 4). Concentrate on keeping your upper body upright.
Should it be so, that you are holding the handlebars very cramped and thus can not comply with the direction, just try to steer with your fingertips (Fig. 5). It is also important that you do not look at the front, but with the eyes to target the point you want to navigate. Also, always keep your upper body upright nice!
If you do these exercises frequently undergo several days in a row, with due patience, success will be guaranteed to set soon and go in the direction that you want. Now you can load a larger peaceful transition and faster ride. But be careful: If you are still uncertain times while driving are never jump off the saddle, so you do not roll the tricycle on the heels! So seats remain, both brakes and stop! Then you can simply focus again and continue your journey.
Finally, a few notes:
• Move only in the public streets, if you feel absolutely confident in dealing with the tricycle.
• Always comply with the rules of the road and you are unsure how to do without your right of way.
• Avoid routes with large lateral tilt and turn into obstacles and curbs at a right angle, so tipping is excluded.
• Read the instructions carefully and follow the rules and instructions documented therein.
• Treat. Care your tricycle and leave regularly perform the required inspections to ensure that the required safety standard is maintained
If you follow all these, you will have a whole new sense of mobility and quality of life! We wish you lots of fun, joy (Fig. 1), and very,
