How To Install Your Ridekick Trailer
Installs on your bike or trike in 5 Easy Steps
“It took me about 10 minutes to install my Ridekick trailer, just as advertised. The trailer was easy to unhitch and lock up when I took the bike onto the beach. My first venture was a 6 mile jaunt, just to get used to the trailer. Then, I did a 21 mile ride — something I would NEVER have tried without the Ridekick. It is smooth and powerful.”

Will it fit on my bike or trike?
The Ridekick Trailer will easily attach to most bikes or trikes with a single axle in the back. The hitch plate needs about 3/8″ of clearance around the axle and the ability to sit directly against the frame of the bike or trike.
Tadpole trikes with most rear hubs are ready for the Ridekick trailer. Delta trikes with the right hardware are Ridekick ready as well, but many need an adapter to convert to a recumbent e-bike.
If you have a delta trike that you want to convert to a recumbent e-bike, please send a photo of your trike for quick feedback. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
Some mountain bikes have “Thru Axle” hubs that aren’t set up for normal trailer hitches. Send a photo for us to evaluate the compatibility.
Some trikes have fancy multi-speed hubs with thicker axles. Just let us know what you have and we’ll get you rolling in your recumbent e-bike!
We will help making your favorite bicycle convert to an electric recumbent e-bike as easy as possible.
