My daughter has spina bifida. After looking at adaptive bikes/trikes that cost multiple times what the Mobito costs, I stumbled across this product. Now my little girl can ride around on her own and have a sense of independence! She feels secure because the trike is low to the ground. She also thinks the trike looks cool, which helps a lot.I made two changes:1) I installed pedals with foot cups from an adaptive trike. This allows her feet to be securely strapped in so that she can pedal for all she is worth - and she does!2) I used a "hook and loop" (Velcro) strap to create a parking brake so that she can get on and off without the trike rolling around.She has someone help her get her feet strapped in and then she is ready to go!

By the way, I tried to go back in and change the stars I gave this product to a one star (one for the nice looks of the trike), but I couldn't change it . . . . so make that a one star not 3. Now we know why this trike only came with a one month guarantee (this is what we were told after calling the company for help). We bought this trike in Oct. for a Christmas present, for our 5 yr. old special needs child. We gave it to him at christmas and after riding on it a couple times it broke (he is a small, lightweight child). A mechanism inside the area on the wheel where the pedal attaches to the wheel (my husband says is the bearings) is stripped or something and the pedals won't catch to make the bike go. It just turns and doesn't catch to pedal the bike. My husband has been in contact with the owner of the company who makes the bikes and was told that it only had a one month guarantee. So we are out of luck and paid almost $300 for a bike that is now no good. It will cost us...

got the small one for my grandson and the large one for me...they are real head-turners and a lot of fun to go tearing through the neighborhood.
