    Trike short list and why...

    I have around 90 miles on her. All the difference in the world with front fork tightness since I figured out what fits over the stem screw to hold everything together. Now THAT was a brain fart! Front basket is nice and tight - next I need a liner for it. I haven't yet taken my Chihuahua for...

    M-360 headlight switch

    Upon noting that the on/off and headlight dimmer switches didn't do what the Addmotor manual for this trike said they should do, I inquired of Addmotor. Here is their reply: Sorry for the late reply. We just confirmed this problem with our factory. The rocker and switch both control the...

    Here is the reply from Addmotor: Hello Gerald, Sorry for the late reply. We just confirmed this problem with our factory. The rocker and switch both control the headlight on/off. The brightness of the headlight cannot be adjusted. Best regards Addmotor That's ok with me. I doubt I would...

    I received the same video as you. But in viewing it again I saw that the washer/shim for the hold down screw was in the wrong place. I corrected it and now the front fork is as tight as it should be. However, I noticed a new quirk, this time in the electrical system. The headlight on off...

    Trike short list and why...

    Got reply from Addmotor. Descriptive words in English are not enough for them. Words like "loose fork", "how to eliminate wobble on front fork/handlebar assembly." They request a video that doesn't show the problem as well as words describe. Perhaps Addmotor techs are English as second...

    Thanks. I just sent Addmotor the same blurb I posted. I expect to hear from them Monday or Tuesday. In the meantime, yes, I will take you up on your offer. It's best to correct this sooner than later.

    Neat video and riding venue. There is one issue I have with the trike. I'm not sure if it is typical/normal or something amiss. But despite the steering stem appearing to be fully seated, there is front to back play in it. This is particularly evident when braking the front wheel - the top...

    Installed front basket to semi-recumbent trike

    My new Addmotor M-360 now has a front basket. It is a black wire Wald from Amazon. Only slight mods were required to fit. One was to increase the separation between the 2 clamps to the handlebar. The other was to tape and hose clamp the bottom of the basket to the stem. I have a thick felt...

    David.. What was the source of your basket insert? Did you have to modify it? By the way, the "cool factor" for this trike is off the charts. I get a conversation or thumbs up from whoever I pass.

    Well, I received the M360 early this afternoon. Here are my observatuons: Delivery: The Roadrunner truck driver brought the very large box into my garage. The box: As expected, large, more unwieldy than heavy. The seat mount post was sticking up through 3 layers of heavy cardboard. I took...

    2019 Evelo Compass Trike

    To add to Dave's comment, I was considering a Compass - it was among the top 5 e-trikes I was evaluating for a time. However, the cost of the replacement battery given its comparatively modest amp/hour rating gave me pause. Additionally, inspite of the Compass's semi-fat 2.2" tires, the 4"...

    Addmotor sales practices so far have been just as sketchy as Screwed4Less. They charged my card 2 days ago and they STILL have not shipped. If there is no evidence of shipping by this time tomorrow, the transaction will be cancelled. They keep coming up with excuses, like " we need you to...

    I'm partially color blind. I bought the green one thinking it was yellow. Maybe it's a yellowish green? How far away from the point of origin are you and how long did it take to arrive?

    I just pulled the trigger on the M-360, Used the same card as I did at Mobility4Less which was approved in 3 seconds for a larger amount, which tells me what a deceitful POS Mobility4Less is.

    Trike short list and why...

    Well, Dave, I think the "table experiment" I conducted at the furniture store today (see post titled 'Revelation") convinced me which trike I should get. It is now between the Addmotor semi-recumbent ant the same style that electrictrike.com sells. They are each within a few $$$ of each other...

    Revelation

    This revelation applies to trikes with the 2 wheels in back. I was waiting in a furniture store while my wife was looking around. Situated in front of the sofa I was sitting on was a 3 legged snack table that you slide up to the sofa. The side of the table with 2 legs was closest to me, and...

    Here's the answer to my question from Emojo... "Hello and thank you for contacting us, the Caddy is a single speed in terms of gears but the pedal assist is related to the electric motor settings and has 5 different levels. Some dealers may still advertise old information in terms of specs."

    Emojo Caddy (the first option) is advertised on several websites as having 5 levels of pedal assist (PAS). But then those are the same sites that advertise the Caddy as having 7 speeds despite the manufacturer stating that 7 speed Caddys are not available anywhere - only single speed. Is...
