Fatbike e-trike that will be nice on the sand. Cool.
Did you ever start to sell this kit? Or are you still in planning and production face? Do you have a timeline for when it will be available for purchase?

Thank your concern about the post; the mechanic in China built 10 kits at the beginning of the year,but he failed to sell ( I had sold 3 kits in Taiwan without advertising )so decided to quit the business I guess, since he didn't answer me for 1 month I'd sent some materials of G2 to build a new kit

I have to find another one to cooperate to build kits G2

Test drive in dry river bed,350w is not enough for soft sand,front wheel easily drift away when turning,riding on pebbles should with full suspension
Recently negotiate with an export trader to develop G2 front end kit

Soft sand riding just fine for a 400w fat bike,2 regular wheels in front provides more lateral friction prevent from drifting away

This is the first time I ever ride a leaning trike product from the market, a trader's client sent a cargo trike from Germany after Eurobike last month, Chike leaning cargo trike is said to be the best C/P value product in EU now, the lean angle/turning radius/length- -say maneuverability tested worse than my prototype

If my work in production in EU market may be like this

To have video embedded do like this:

You put down:

Code: Select all

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KUzxjxYH4wk[/youtube]
Swap that for this, how I discarded everything in the link from the = and to the left?

Code: Select all

This way what you get is this embedded player:

Nice leaning cargo trike, reminds me of the butcher trike form Denmark.

I really like the idea of these bikes, it could be a perfect urban trike for everyday usage. And for many people it could replace the need for a car. But they both lack in one department, suspensions. What I would like to see is a full suspension cargo trike with two wheels up front. Heck Piaggio et.al has done this for ten years or so with their MP3 scooter trike. Those rides very well, but they are not electric and they got no cargo bin up front.

Butcher Bike Trike;

The export trader want a relative narrow track trike with 16" front wheels like Chike, if it's a good deal they pay me a deposit first, the product could be seen in EU market soon

Also a prototype G2 is in build in China by a mechanic in amateur now,I prefer this narrow track type for off road riding

Keep making the front track width narrower and narrower, and eventually you'll arrive at the optimum solution.

Either maneuverability or capacity and safety for adventuring

Regular tires for long battery mileage,when in rough or soft terrain,the track swing down to drive the bike forward

First prototype test ride for EU market; the light blue comparison one is Chike trike
Since no needed NOS counter thread rod ends in stock, replace with POS, the lean angle of the trike restricted

Hi,

I have a Chike and can confirm that in my experience it rides better than several of the other EU alternatives I have tried (Veleon, B&B mk1, and the Nicolai CD1: https://www.hnf-nicolai.com/ebike/cd1-cargo/). My main feeling was that the steering was more direct (fewer linkages perhaps), and the speed at which tilting became stable/controllable was much lower - perhaps due to the smaller wheels or the geometry. I see that your latest version has an elevated chainstay which would allow a belt drive which makes me really interested. Can you estimate what the front load carrying capacity will be? Please let me know if you ever make these for sale, or have a way where I could purchase a frame/tilting mechanism from you or your builder.

Thanks for keeping us updated on your great project,

Matt

The angle of Chike's steer column too incline so the wheel's turning Angular accelerations is nonlinear with handle bar turning obviously,when you ride in neutral start to turn,you feel wheels turning lag in response that make you easily fall inside the turning radius

The trike will be in production soon and export to Germany,there is a distributor order already,actually an export trader do concept design and I help them in mechanical design of front end

I will try to make the trike capable of carrying an adult about 70kg
By the way; this is S size bucket,there are also long John type for M and L size bucket

Great - are you able to share the details of the German distributor already?
