John on his Big Orange Liberty Trike

EBT people,

Today I took the first extended test drive on my new “Big Orange” Liberty Trike of about nine miles. Everything went pretty much the way I thought it would. I did get a lot of stares and smiles from walkers, drivers, outside diners, and especially kids.

I am very pleased with the power of the motor. It was able to handle my 275lbs in good fashion. In fact, I wouldn’t want it to be any more powerful or faster than it is right now. I have to admit to maxing out at 11.5 to 12 MPH when the way ahead permitted.

With flashing lights front and rear, I used the bike lanes on the roads here in Tampa when sidewalk riding might interfere with pedestrians or slower bikes. The basket was great for holding a cooler bag with water and my small camera bag. At the end of the trip, the battery still showed 4 bars. I’ll try 15 miles next time and see what the battery indicator says then.

The build quality is what I expected from a Worksman trike, since I have purchased three industrial trikes from them in the past for my workers. However, I was a bit surprised to find a 13mm nut on the handlebar clamp and 1/2” on the seat clamp. Huh?? I’m not a big fan of the quick release clamps anyway. I know they are necessary for breaking the bike down quickly without tools, but I can’t stand any movement at all.

I am a bit disappointed that the one speed is impossible to get up to any speed under pedal power. I had hoped that the trike could be somewhat useful without power. That overdrive on the Sturmey Archer 2 speed might have been nice. In fact, three or more speeds would be better.

I can’t wait to take this trike to the zoo. I’ll let you know how Lowe's and Walmart feels about running up and down their aisles.

Best regards,
John D

As you can see in the pictures the very first Liberty Trike to get painted are black. If you ordered black then one of those is yours!

Once all the frames are painted they'll be packed up and shipped to our warehouse in Philadelphia for final assembly and packing. We expect all of that to take place and have them out the door and on their way to backers and pre-order buyers by the end of March.

Speaking of packaging, it has been our goal all along to make custom boxes for the Liberty Trike. We'll be working with Trenton Corrugated of Trenton, NJ on this and we'll be sure to share that process as we get into it.

Thanks again to everyone for your patience and support during this process.

The bigger and more exciting news is that yesterday I was at Workman to approve the final design for the frame and that looks amazing. Several changes were made that make the trike even better, stronger and more fun to ride. Read More
