Also looking at a Trigg trike kit. Any benefits the Tow pac has over a Trigg kit?
Also, can I install this kit? I'm not a mechanic, but do a lot of my own oil changes etc
My name is Tony Molina, owver of Cycle Stuff in Lavergne, Tennessee. We are the nations largest distributor of Insta Trike kits by Tow Pac. We have seen all of the kits on the market, including Trigg. Their facility is only about an hour from our shop and we visited the factory about 5 months ago. The product is most similar to the Voyager trike kit. We have not completely made the decision NOT to carry Trigg, but there are some disadvantages that we see that we are not sure if we like. The biggest would be the mounting of the kit, where the main point of attachment is UNDER the bike decreasing your ground clearance. We feel that when you only have 7-9 inches of clearance to begin with, cutting it down by 2-4 inches is significant. When we spoke with them last fall, their turnaround time was about 8-10 weeks where the Tow Pac kit is around 2 weeks. They also charge fees for credit card use, plus a hefty packaging fee--this will probably put your overall cost significantly higher.
The Tow Pac has been an excellent product and we have sold hundreds of kits all across the country in addition to installing many many kits.
As far as installation..if you have moderate skills you shouldn't have any problems installing the kit. About 90% of our customers install these kits themselves. Myself, I am not a mechanic and I have done many of these kits myself.
I hope this information helps, if you have any other questions, please do not hesitate in asking!
