Have put 22,000 on my RoadSmith Trike Kit since having it installed 18 months ago and Love it. Also the service in Dayton at The Trike Shop is the best. It is worth anybody's time that is looking at triking to try out the new RoadSmith kit.
You can call the The Trike Shop and get help anytime they are open. I didn't have any luck calling Motor Trike. You get the car part numbers for all of the items that are from a car. That means when you need brake pads they are much less expensive.
we do about 70-90 Roadsmith's trikes a year.All I can say is there is never a problem with any of them..
Some preferences with trike kits are personal, and we are all different in what we like. But what Mr. Harris states above has been absolutely correct in my experience with one RoadSmith conversion. In my mind, the peace of mind and confidence in the design and performance of the RoadSmith kit, plus the way the Trike Shop stands behind it's great product makes it the best choice overall. I bought mine to ride, and the things I read here and hear otherwise reinforce my belief that I made a very wise choice when I bought a RoadSmith. I can also testify that if any of you are interested in a great installer, you should contact Bill and Beverly at Pickups, Trikes, and More located just north of Portales, New Mexico.
I think the Roadsmith rides better than the Motor Trike. It is longer and a little wider. I have a MT and 70K on and love the ride, and the active air system, but a little bumpy for the wife on occasion. Cant go wrong with the Roadsmith.
