  1.  My chain keeps slipping off, what’s the issue?

Your chain may not be aligned with the sprocket. Check the alignment of the chain from the rear of the tryke to see if this is the case. If problem persists, please contact Technical and Customer Support 1-800-838-1845 Extension 114

  1.  My amtryke barely moves when pushed or while riding. What could be the issue?

During installation, the rear wheels could have been tightened too much—you will know this when you turn the wheel by hand (while one side of tryke is suspended in the air) and it does not turn freely. Loosen the wheel nuts a quarter turn to see if this helps. Also check whether your brakes are engaged or not.

  1.  My cables on my hand tryke keep getting tangled up. What’s a fix for this?

Cables can be bound together using black electrical tape. Using a tight winding motion, wrap cables together with tape 5 inches from the support post. This will help keep cables out of the way when riding.

  1.  How can I prepare my amtryke for transport?

Amtrykes can be partially disassembled for transport. If a rear steering kit is installed—loosen the rear steering bar with brake lever’s collar using a 5mm Allen wrench. Swing steering bar towards the seat to decrease the length of the tryke. Another move could be to loosen quick releases at loop handlebars to decrease height of tryke. Seat backs can also be removed by loosening the black knob located on your seatpost.

  1.  My handlebars are loose, how can I fix this issue?

Double-check the tightness of your quick release levers and/or stem collar that holds your clamps over your selected handlebars.

  1. Do you have any amtryke dealers in my area?
