'The Dirt King Childs Dually Tricycle allows our children, who are not
riding bikes, to ride a peer appropriate looking trike with confidence. It
fits a variety of children of varying abilities and ages. It is a great
exercise motivator and product. We recommend it to parents to work on
strength, motor planning, exercise, and family play!'
....recently posted at "Made Here Made Well":
Remember your three-wheeler tricycle when you were a kid? You’d race down the sidewalk with it like a speed demon. Nobody dared get in your way. That is, until something on the trike would need to be repaired or replaced from all the wear and tear.
With the Dirt King, tricycles have come a long way. Literally.
Not only is Dirt King made here in the U.S., but it’s one three-wheeler tricycle made to withstand every rough and tumble playtime session your child can dish out. Plus, Dirt King also makes ultra-durable carts and wagons. Most of the parts have a lifetime warrantee with pieces that are virtually indestructible.
“My son is now 17 and we still have the Dirt King to pass on to his kids – our grandkids.”
“Dirt King is like the Harley Davidson of trikes.”
“It won’t tip over like the cheap bikes made overseas.”
Do these sound like the kind of things a parent would say about a frail, wimpy bike? Not likely.
Go big. Go rugged. Go for miles. With the Dirt King

(video) on high speed, so all vulgar language should be inaudible :) I was just trying to adjust it for my girl's size, and was all thumbs tonight lol.This is her 8th birthday present. I have to say this Trike is THE BEST EVER!! It is solid, something you could pass down to your grand children. It is pricey, but remember, quality means much more than quantity :) The model I got converts to Adult size and they also sell a wagon that attaches to the backside They have an option to downsize it for tots, all you have to do is buy a few spare parts to adjust. Or, buy the children's model for 6 and below. dirtkingusa.com
... “ I have advanced arthritis and it is difficult to walk even short distances without pain. A neighbor kid who is 9 years old let me ride his adult Dirt King trike and I was able to give my dog a walk around the block for the first time. It is not possible for me to walk around the block, but peddling did not bother my hip joint. I thought my tricycle riding days were over, but the Dirt King adult dually has changed my mind!”

…”It’s virtually indestructible and safe, kids can’t pick it up and throw it because of the weight and it won’t tip over like the cheap trikes made overseas. We were buying 3 to 5 replacement trikes every year until we got our first Dirt King trike.”

…”I prefer the off road look and durability of Dirt King for my kids. I also like the fact it is American made. Dirt King is like the Harley Davidson of trikes.”

“Our Dirt King bike was previously owned and given to us in perfect condition. It has withstood a handful of summers and winters (yes, they ride it in the snow). It is indestructible and a favorite with my three boys. The only thing that could harm it was the family van, which ran it over and bent the pedals. Naturally, we were desperate for parts. When we called MCM, we were given one-on-one prompt, friendly service and a very reasonable price. The new pedals were shipped immediately and the Dirt King was up and running in a week. Thank you!”

…”We have always lived on a farm and when my son was 3 years old we got him a Dirt King. He rode it over grass, gravel and dirt because of the knobby air tires. My son is now 17 and we still have the Dirt King to pass on to his kids, our grandkids.”
