    Experience with Wizwheelz?

    Anybody ridden a Wizwheelz 'bent? I live within about 20 minutes of their production facility and I occasionally get an itch to go take one for a spin. I've heard good and bad about them and I'd like to get some opinions from the forum members if you are willing. =)

    There are several levels of performance from WizWheelz. I can only point you at the style kingpins they chose to use. Only one of their models uses the conventional headset style kingpin... and suprise, it is not their entry level trike. If you want a quality trike for for a budget price, keep an eye on used Catrikes... or even a new Catrike Trail is a very nice deal.

    If you get a chance to ride, go do it... but be sure to try the other brands as well.
    Today is a great day to ride!

    I owned a WW Terratrike 3.6 and am purchasing a Cruise this summer. They are very nice trikes. The frame is a flexible, smoother riding chromoly steel whereas the Catrikes are aluminum. I owned a Catrike Pocket and felt every pebble on the road on that frame. Also, the WW trikes have fully adjustable seats that offer varied recline and fore and aft adjustment. It is a versatile fitting seat whereas the Catrikes are a fixed seat recline position attached to the frame. The steering on most of the WW is indirect vs. the direct steering on the Catrikes, and I experienced the steering on mine to be responsive with no stability problems at higher speeds. I also liked the fact that the seat is a little higher on the WW Terratrike and I was able to take mine on some rougher ground such as light trails through the woods near my home.

    Living near the WW production facility is a boon. I'd suggest that you go and see for yourself. Take some of the trikes for a test spin and see what you think.
