    I hope you enjoy your new trike as much as I do mine. There is a lady that lives about 3/4 of a mile from me that has the same model trike that I do. She has M.S. that severely affects the right side of her body, both her arm and leg. We have started riding together. The riding benefits her by helping with muscle tone while it benefits my formidable body with needed exercise. We have found that it's good to have a riding buddy to motivate each of us to just do it when sometimes feeling a bit lazy. I do enjoy it. Looking forward to pictures of your completed trike..... Jim

    The project will be delayed due to missing and damaged parts. Sounds familiar, I went through the same thing with trike conversions.

The seller in Michigan didn't pack it and ship it the factory out of Jacksonville did. I notified the seller and sent pics to him to jog the memory of the worker who packed the order incompletely. You talk about sloppy they even managed to throw the nut & bolt that holds the front fender on loose in the box. I paid $155.00 for a set of 3 airless tires and got 1, that's an expensive tire.

    Some heads up companies.....Will weigh the box before they ship it out and if it's short a part they'll know by the Weight Discrepancy....

    I agree, but the packer still has a dealer order sheet to follow. I know when I made out the order for a conversion on one of the forms it asked if I wanted the white stripe on the tires facing in or out, I check off 'Out' and someone not paying attention faced them in. Some where I had seen a form that was handed out and the form was to see how alert you were and if you read before you fill it out. Me, I read everything and I sign no document with blank spaces.

    Well, I got some good news the correct parts are on their way and the company is including a return shipping label for the wrong items. This is a U.S.A. made trike and it seems that Trailmate has good customer service.
