Welcome to Trike Daddy Customs Videos section. Please feel free to like and share or subscribe to our Youtube page using the link below. Trike Daddy Customs is a USA based company. We are Veteran owned and operated with pride. We take a different approach to building drift trikes. Our trikes are built based around the riders comfort and performance. Let’s face it, if it’s not comfortable then it’s not fun right?! So many trike company’s today will copy someone else’s design and sell it as their own making it just another plain old drift trike. TDC drift Trikes are unique to the drift trike world.
Our frames are Mandrel bent to a tolerance of 1/2″ of 1/10th or 1* giving our trikes that signature double barrel downtube look. Our trikes feature some things that most people overlook when buying a drift trike. One feature is our rubberized foot pegs, the rubber pegs serve two purposes, 1. They grip the riders shoe to prevent their feet from sliding off. 2. They isolate the rider from vibration to keep the rider from fatiguing to quickly. Another specific feature is that we use the correct tire and rim combination to allow the 10″ PVC sleeves to fit with ease. There’s no issues with the tires bulging out from the PVC like other trikes you see.
This feature also makes it easier to remove and replace your PVC without any tools. Our trikes also feature an adjustable seat, so if you have kids or another person is going to be riding it’s easy to adjust the seat to the right position for a short or tall rider.
Something else you might notice about our trikes is that we use a large diameter tubing. Most trike makers use 1-1/4″ diameter tubing, we on the other hand use 1-1/2″ diameter tubing for that beefy look. In addition to a beefy frame we decided after extensive testing that a normal go kart cassette and bearing setup wasn’t going to work. This is because a drift trike, unlike a go kart, is subjected to extreme vibration due to riding on the plastic sleeves vise rubber tires.
We found that the aluminum cassette housings and the steel construction of the bearings caused the cassette to become oblong shaped. This created a severe vibration from the axle hopping around from the loose bearing fitment. So, we decided to use something that was rated for industrial use like a pillow-block bearing. A steel housing and a steel bearing means that there is no wear from vibration like the aluminum cassettes had. The added bonus is that they now can be greased without removing the bearings.
These features as well as several others is what makes Trike Daddy Customs the best built trike in the business. Our Research and testing has allowed us to build something that is sexy, fun, and built to last. Something you won’t find with a trike that’s Made in China….. Slide Safe!
