Schwinn Meridian Tricycle

For people who is on the hunt for a decent three-wheeled bike, you can always consider the Schwinn Meridian Tricycle. Many people chose this adult trike because it has ample room in the back for groceries. The folding rear basket is big enough to load a lot of stuff, and the wheels are 26”, which is most people desired studded tire size.

Humble and Environmentally friendly

The Schwinn Meridian is a humble yet environmentally friendly vehicle. If you are planning to make an effort to better the environment, live green and reduce your carbon footprint, this adult trike is your best choice. Not only does it give you a fun way to exercise and get around, this adult tricycle also serves a cargo function— you can load lots of books or groceries into its big basket. Riding the Meridian to the grocery store or do little neighborhood errands on a perfect sunny day is always an amazing experience.

Comfort Oriented

One thing many people really like about the Schwinn Meridian Tricycle is that it is like a comfort-oriented three-wheeled machine. It comes with a single speed that makes it very easy to use. Sometimes when we are buying an adult trike, our intention was for leisure riding and neighborhood errands, not for speed. So this is the reason many people chose the Schwinn Meridian over other multi speeds trike.

Excellent Mechanical Design

As for mechanical design, the Schwinn Meridian is built with a lightweight alloy frame, which is actually lighter than we thought it would be. It also comes with a good V-brake on the front rim and a traditional “strap” brake in the rear. All of these solid design features make the Meridian a comfortable, sturdy and safe vehicle.

Your First Ride

Some people may encounter a little incident when first try to ride their Schwinn Meridian. They found that it has a tendency to pull toward the chain side of the trike. An experienced bike shop mechanic will tell you the pulling was due to uneven tire pressure. The sensation of pulling to the side is just like a car with a flat pulling to one side. Besides, since this is the first time you ride a three-wheeled bike, you might feel a little different than it would on a regular bike. The handling characteristics are not the same. A tricycle is not steered by leaning as with a bicycle. It must be steered by turning the handlebar. So not to worry, after a few days of riding your Meridian, you will get used to your new trike.

The Schwinn Meridian Tricycle is really a good buy for the price, due to its excellent quality. We highly recommend the Meridian to anyone who is looking to buy their first adult trike at a reasonable price. Read more
