The convenience of Swinging Wheels versus a tricycle for the elderly

Our Swinging Wheels naturally have many advantages over a regular tricycle for the elderly. For example, you can easily have the wheels placed on your current bicycle, so that you retain the familiar feeling of your own bicycle. Another important advantage is the ease with which you put the wheels on your bike and take it off. Ideal when you want to store the bike in your shed or put it on the back of the bike carrier for a wonderful cycling holiday.

Release your training wheels

As a dealer in adult training wheels, we know that not everyone has two right hands. We sometimes see some people thinking when purchasing the Swinging Wheels; how do I get these wheels off my bike myself? After all, it does not fit on the back of the car. It’s actually quite simple. First of all, we mount the Swinging Wheels system on the back of your bicycle. You do not have to do anything about this. If you then decide to remove the wheels from your bike, for example for a holiday to France, you will be ready within a minute. You put your bike on the stand and release the quick-release levers of a training wheel on one side. Then you can slide the training wheel off your bike with ease and then do the same on the other side of your bike. You can then simply place the wheels in the back of the car or caravan. After this, you can simply place the bicycle on the back of the bicycle carrier, just like any other bicycle. This is much easier than a standard tricycle for the elderly, where the wheels cannot be easily disassembled.

Back on the road in a few minutes

No wrench or screwdriver is involved in this entire process. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. But we already hear you think; how do I then get the wheels back on my bike without the help of my bike specialist? That is actually just as simple as when you take the wheels off. We would be happy to show you how it works when purchasing our adult training wheels. Within a few times you will have mastered the system. You simply slide the wheels back between the quick releases and close it. Once you have arrived at the holiday destination, you can be on your bike within a few minutes. So you do not have to bring the tool box out as if you were mounting wheels on a standard tricycle for the elderly. Before you know it, you will be cycling through the rolling French countryside to the local boulangerie for a fresh warm baguette, while your partner puts the things in the holiday home in the meantime.
