The Worksman Team Dual Side by Side Tricycle is simply a wonderful product that tens of thousands of riders enjoy each year. Join this Fun Club! __________________________________________________________________________________ >p> For those situations where the right side rider may have difficulty controlling pedals, we offer a new option called the N21 Freewheel option, shown in the option list. This is the upgrade to add a freewheel sprocket to a SBST on the right side axle. We install the fixed drive sprocket and freewheel sprocket, but the short chain is hooked up only to the freewheel. When you backpedal on that side, the pedals simply go backwards and does not apply a coaster brake. This is very helpful in special needs applications when a RIDER would accidentally or unintentionally hit the coaster brake by pedaling backwards. The Captain then would control all braking functions and the passenger would pedal when they can and position the pedals where needed for greatest efficiency, but NOT apply a brake. If at some point in the future you wish to activate the coaster brake, all parts are there to do so and convert back to the standard function. SEE OPTION N21 in the options list to choose this configuration.

**Notes about Carrying Capacities: While other companies put unfounded inflated weight capacity figures based upon no facts, we at Worksman Cycles actually put weight capacities far less than the true capabilities of the cycles, as we take into consideration not only what the cycle will be able to hold, but what is a safe operational weight. Worksman Industrial Tricycles are simply more durable than other brands and have a 100+ year track record to prove it.

Electric Cycles are to be operated by people 18+ years old.

Worksman SIDE-BY-SIDE "Electric Lightning " Trike SBST-3CB-HB - LIGHTNING Electric
We love it!
This side by side has really given my wife and I a great way to spend the day biking, but still be together and chat rather than yelling back and forth on separate bikes. We weren't expecting it to be so heavy, so can't imagine not having 3 speeds... Plus the electric assist is a godsend when we get tired or are going up a long grade. The engineering of this bike is well thought out with the split rear axle and easily adjustable seats and steering column. One item we didn't order that I am going to get - the second set of arm rests. I didn't think we would miss the inside rests but we did. If I could change one thing, it would be to add some sort of cruise control, or at the very least a thumb throttle. The twist throttle is tiring to hold over long periods. The electric assist is made by a third party manufacturer so not a workman issue. Last thing, a pie in the sky type request.... some sort of suspension option would be nice.

Side By Side Electric Tandem
Built like a tank! We went 12 miles on one charge with intermediate pedaling on a flat surface. Lots of smiles and double takes from the other bikers on the trail. We had a few problems with the bike, but they took care of it. Excellent customer service! The welds are functional, not beautiful. Don't order the cup holders. Everything else was A-OK. Top speed is about 12 MPH. Handles moderate inclines with ease. Hills require pedal assist. We are happy with the bike overall. We both have issues with balance and this was a way to continue to ride and not worry about crashing.

Best buy
I race bikes so this review might sound funny coming from me? But I should of got one of these a long time ago. What a great transportation. I love the elec. Motor. I build recumbent bikes and love them. Thus is much like them. It is nice to just stop a enjoy the scenery. In those very comfortable seats. It is so quiet you can hear the birds. Also very well thought out and quality built. I tried hard to tip it over and never got one wheel off the ground. Wow! Seems like we could ride this forever? Thanks for such a great product at a very good price.(well worth the money)

Electric Assist Tandem
We have a bike rental shop in Iowa on the High Trestle Trail. This is our third Worksman. The electric assist will be very beneficial for people with challenges who need an occasional extra boost. The heavy duty worksmanship is a very important quality.
