Thank you. Feel
free to use me as a reference. I broke my back and this trike enables
me to ride without pain (other than my quadriceps....ha ha). really
like the way the trike handles - it's very responsive. Going downhill
feels like a go cart. I'm really impressed with the design. Also, your
updates on the building and shipping were well appreciated. It's
stressful purchasing a high cost item online and half-way around the
world. Your contact helped minimize my anxiety. Keep up the great work
and good business etiquette. And again, I'll be using my new toy
frequently. Thanks for making my riding days better.

Dear Mike and Ann,
Just a quick note to tell you my Roller now has just shy of 500 miles
up. Apart from the p*ncture fairy visiting the only thing done has
been a bit of routine care and attention and adjustment.
It is a pleasure to ride 40-50
miles and certainly attracts attention. It is extremely comfortable,
those armrests are a real blessing. It's even so comfortable that I'm
trying to figure out a way of getting my lunch out of the panniers
without getting off the trike!!!
I did use the really low gear once - I was coming back from a ride and
had a long uphill drag towards the end. This hill seems to go on
for ever and has a nasty sharp climb at the end. It was nice
after 35 miles to have the really low gear to crawl up the nasty bit.
Hope you are both well and thanks for making such a nice machine.

". . . the armrests are
tremendous! I don't know how we ever managed without
them. They really make a big difference not only to the comfort
but also to the finesse of the steering. It is so much easier to
use subtle corrections now that you are able to relax the arms
A superb mod. - many thanks"

The video is great! Very classy. Is that
you in the opening shot? I think itís great to see it in
action. Who knows you may have to start a second shift to keep up with
demand. If all your customers are as happy as I am we may have to
build a monument or something."

"All in all I am
getting an immense amount of enjoyment from the trike and an almost
equal amount of enjoyment (of a different sort) as I look at the
design and construction. You really have evolved a very well thought
through design Mike, and just owning it gives me a great deal of
pleasure. As for riding it, I continue to make friends with total
strangers who are fascinated by it and
love trying it out for themselves.
Speak to you soon. Best wishes to yourself and Ann"

" Hope your trial demo was a
success & more RRs are about to populate the
earth (tho' not too many - I don't want to be seen as common!).
Well, my dear trike's nearly a year old now, &
(& punctures!) apart, it's been a real joy to own, thank you very
& many thanks to Ann too. All the very best,

I've just had another look at your web site. I like the yellow
Just to let you
know that all is going well with my 'little' trike, as kids call
it. I can maintain an average speed as good as that which I do
on my upright two-wheeler - without the aches in back, neck and
wrists. I'm a little slower uphill, but I now can enjoy bombing
downhill while feeling quite safe and stable.
I can just get it,
with the seat folded down, through the door of an IC125
train luggage van, and, with a struggle, into the luggage bay of a 156
Sprinter (not the one which has a slot for, in theory, two
cycles). On its
side, it sits comfortably in the 'wheelchair' area of a Turbostar
I'm hoping to take
it by air to Poland next summer. (LOT Polish Airlines at
Krakow didn't want me to pack down my Moulton APB in any way last
I would recommend
your trike to anyone.

Mike and Ann,
WHAT A FANTASTIC MACHINE!!!!
Had a great time bringing the Rollers home.
day cycled to Rutland Water arriving at
with no aches or pains. All road users were very courteous to us,
letting us out of junctions, stopping for a chat or tooting their
horns and giving us the thumbs up. What an unusual experience..
Averaged 9.2mph with highs of 25 and lows of 3mph! The trailer was
great on the flats but was very noticeable on the climbs. Not
surprising really. A useful exercise non-the-less.
Day two, we cycled the remaining distance home.
A really good day on quiet back roads up hill and down. High of
30mph and a low of 2mph up a steep incline over the wolds.Noticeable that we were
travelling faster and pulling slightly higher gears.I think we will see big
improvements over the coming weeks as we get cycle-fit again.
The Rollers were just out of this world. The comfort is amazing - as
view of the road ahead.No
problems at all in the first 115 miles (we took a
round about route).
you both for all you have done for us. We'll be in touch again soon
and let you know how we are getting on. Could you email us any pics
with us in them, if possible?
Best regards from two very satisfied customers.

Dear Mike & Ann,
Just a few lines to let you know how things are
going - brilliant! I've been out on the trike most
nights and done a couple of longer runs at the weekends; one 50 miles,
another 82.This weekend I
plan to get into triple figures for the first time.
I really like everything about the trike, and am constantly smiling at
the thought that went into the design.For example, I added a few links to the chain after you
lengthened the boom for me. It quietened things down initially, but
I've now discovered the transmission is much better the way you
supplied it in the first place! After I took the extra ones out again,
the chain doesn't slap around, and it's still quiet - I know, you
said it would quieten down when I collected it.
The seat is so comfortable and I love the pocket at the back of the
headrest.A work colleague
was particularly impressed with the stitching on the flap. I never hear the new flag
I have had a lot of interest shown in the trike. One female friend,
who suffers from a bad back, has had a go and was so bowled over with
it, she is seriously thinking about getting her own. I told her about
the website - love the new pictures by the way - and she's
going to visit.I also
said you were more than willing to tailor things to the individual, as
you did with my gearing, although in fact there's really no
need - the original is so spot on.
So many thanks to you both for a wonderful machine. I know I paid for it, but the
quality and thoughtfulness you've shown go beyond the call of duty.

PS You are welcome to give
my number to anyone in this area who contacts you, and would like to
come and have a look, talk or ride, before making the trip down to King's
' . . . It really is a
brilliant piece of engineering - in fact I was tempted to bring it
into the lounge as my favourite arm chair! . . . '
