Frankentrikes – Ideal Personal Vehicle That Changes The Way People Travel

An electric-assist all-purpose tricycle that’s perfect for most urban transport needs

OAKLAND, CA – February 22, 2016 – Frankentrikes announced a Kickstarter campaign to help the company manufacture and release their revolutionary vehicle. It’s a tricycle that has the benefits of a bike and additional features of a car. This bike has been featured in Momentum Magazine.  A ‘Frankentrike’is a human-powered, electric-assist all-purpose tricycle.  For a limited time, backers can secure Priority Ordering status with significant discounts off of the total purchase price! The crowdfunding campaign has a funding goal of $50,000, which has to be raised by March 24th, 2016 in order for the project to move forward. 

In the US alone, 73% of all vehicle trips are under 10 miles in distance.  At this range, a Frankentrike can usually take you door-to-door faster than on a car or bike.  Possessing both motors and pedals, users can choose how much of a workout they get on their journey, while travelling at city speeds (25 MPH). This transportation solution will help Americato combat climate instability with a green-friendly option for travelling while simultaneously combatting pocketbook anemia.  A Frankentrike costs a fraction to maintain of what a car owner spends yearly on fuel, maintenance, and associated costs.Frankentrikes remove some of the frustration of moving and parking in an urban environment, because they are legal drive on the street and bike paths, and to park on the sidewalk.  And their generous cargo area permits the transport of up to ¼ ton of people or stuff. 

“What I’ve discovered, living in Vancouver, B.C., Seattle, WA and Oakland, CA, is that, now that I drive a Frankentrike, I no longer need to own a car.” ~ Segue Fischlin, Founder and Owner of Frankentrikes 

Funds from the campaign will go towards refining the design in order to prepare a model vehicle ready for production. The first batch of Frankentrikes will be released to their owners in the summer of 2018 if the campaign is successfully funded.

Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing”deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help Frankentrikes reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
