Adult-size Big Wheel

High Roller Trike

(From Wired) Get the old neighborhood kids on the horn, pronto. It’s time to get the biker gang back together.

Rub your eyes a few times and consider buying the High Roller Adult Size Big Wheel Drift Trike immediately.

The all-plastic crotch rockets of our youth probably wouldn’t support today’s average middle-aged fellow, so the High Roller has been fashioned with a steel frame and alloy rims for the pneumatic 26-inch front tire. The trike is rated to carry up to 275 pounds.

On the back, the High Roller’s 14-inch high-density polyethylene plastic wheels are five times thicker than the ones on the hog you had as a kid.

These back wheels are good for 150 miles of open-road ridin’, skiddin’ and spinnin’ out before you need to replace them with a fresh $90 pair.

One big disappointment: This Big Wheel doesn’t have the side-mounted hand-brake of its forebears. The High Roller has a handlebar-operated V-brake instead.

But the seat is still adjustable, and this time around, it looks like it’s made out of a more-comfortable Nerf-like material.

When the trike is flipped over, the front pedals can still be hand-cranked for usage as an imaginary ice-cream maker, too.

You can purchase it for $599.99 from High Roller USA.
