Consider This Before Buying a Walmart Tricycle

Service and Quality

Walmart offers almost everything you might ever need in one store. And while they may have different departments and people who work in those departments, it is impossible to have a worker who can answer all the questions you may have regarding a certain product that they have.

You are going to want to choose an electric bicycle company who truly knows their products and can assist you with any questions you may have about the product before you purchase.

Electric tricycles are a large item that typically should come with a warranty. You should always choose a company that is going to have a good customer service department and is reliable for you. If you ever need help with anything after you make the purchase, you want to make sure it is from a company who wants to help you out.

Find a place where when you call or email their customer service department there is someone who you can actually talk to – and they know what they are talking about. You may have questions before and after you purchase an electric tricycle, and you want to make sure that it is a company that will help you out with those.

Who is Going to Fix it if Something Breaks?

We all know that the longer you ride an electric tricycle the more likely it is going to need regular maintenance or something is going to break. If you choose to purchase one from Walmart, they don’t have any kind of mechanics who are going to come out and fix whatever problem you may have with your bike.

Make sure you choose an electric bike company who is going to help you get the problems fixed that may happen with your tricycle. You should be able to just call or email the company and let them know what the problem is with your bicycle and they will get a mechanic out to you as quickly as possible.

It is recommended to find out what kind of mechanics a company has to offer if a problem may arise with your bicycle. Also, check and see what type of warranty(s)they may offer and for how long before you make the final decision to purchase.

While the cost between a Walmart electric tricycle and an electric bicycle company may seem a lot different - but there is a reason why. You want to get something that isn't going to leave you stranded or break down every time you want to ride. When you spend a little more money, it can truly make a difference in quality and reliability.

Features to Check Out

If you are considering some type of tricycle there are a number of different things you should look for before you purchase one.

First off, you want to make sure you are choosing a bicycle that is going to be sturdy and reliable. Check and see how much weight it can hold, what materials it is made of and what kind of reviews they may have.

Most electric bicycles have three different options that you can choose from when it comes to the way you want to ride. Make sure you choose a tricycle that has all three of these. There is normal pedaling, pedal assist and full throttle mode.

Normal pedaling is just like how it sounds, you pedal just like you do on a bike that doesn’t have a motor. With pedal assist, you will pedal at the same time as the motor will assist you, and you can really get going quick this way. The final option is going to be full throttle mode and it is just as it sounds, you will push down on the thumb lever and let the bike use just the motors power to ride!

Another major thing you will want to have on your electric tricycle is going to be away to keep track of your mileage and speed. Look for a tricycle that has some type of controller screen, this should typically be located on the handlebars of your tricycle. The screen should let you know how fast you are going, how far you have gone and the battery life.

I would always take a good look at what kind of seat is on the tricycle, since you will be sitting on it a lot. Look for something comfortable, and something that is wide and cushioned. Some electric bicycle seats may even have a backrest for added comfort and relaxation as you ride.

Finally, I would recommend that you check out what type of tires are on the electric tricycle you are looking at. Check for something that has all terrain tires or fat tires. These will be super great and will give you no issues no matter what terrain you are riding on. The picture below shows a fat tire electric tricycle.

Benefits of Choosing a Reliable Electric Tricycle

There are many different features and customizations you can choose from when you are looking to find which electric tricycle may be the one for you. In the end you need to just make sure it fits your needs and is going to be a reliable tricycle.

Electric tricycles are becoming more and more popular in a number of different age groups - and there are a couple of great reasons for this!

Any type of electric bicycle or electric tricycle can be a great form of renewable transportation. Since you don’t need gas or oil, just a renewable resource, these can be a great everyday commuter that also is helping the environment. With a long-lasting battery, you can get to anywhere you need to go, and get back home with an electric tricycle.

Electric tricycles are a great way to get your exercise in! Many people use tricycles as their main form of exercise since it works so many parts of your body. There are may doctors who even have been recommending electric tricycles as part of their patient’s physical therapy. So, they can be great to help you stay in shape or just get back outside.

We all know how hard it can be to stay balanced on a two wheeled bicycle, but the extra wheel on a tricycle adds for the ability to stay way more balanced as you ride along, no matter where you need to go. They make it a lot more difficult to tip over which can be a great thing for anyone. Since tricycles have more stability than a two wheeled bicycle does, you have to use less physical strength to control and ride it.
