What You Should Know
Trikke is a bike with three wheels and a very unique method of movement. The body powered Trikke has two wheels on the back and one on the front. The frame shifts, so the rider can move back and forth on the rear wheels moving the Trikke forward. If the rider moves the legs faster, the bike will move faster. The Trikke is also available in electric hybrid and snow ski. The snow and manual versions are the only two that provide increased exercise and fitness. With a healthy diet plan, the dieter may actually lose a few pounds by Trikking.

Some people like to Bike and others like to Trikke. The Trikke forces the rider to use lower muscle legs to move the bike forward. Unlike a traditional bike, the Trikke has pedals or platforms on top of each back wheel. The rider steps on these foot holds and moves back and forth, side to side shifting weight from left to right. At first, the movement is slow, but the rider can increase the speed of the weight shift to increase Trikke speed.

The Trikke looks extremely fun to ride, but not every dieter will have fun. The lower body muscles required to move then Trikke are different than those used in traditional bike riding. This means even the most adept rider will use new muscles. The cost of the Trikke could be a bit more expensive than some dieters are willing to pay. This is especially true of children who may outgrow the Trikke in a short time. Some sporting goods stores allow buyers to try the Trikke before making the purchase.
