Court Rye of ElectricRideReview.com was in Fort Collins and asked to spend some time with
Ridekick International owners, Mark Wanger and Dee Wanger, and do a thorough Ridekick Review.
“It’s actually one of the more
affordable electric bike ‘solutions’
I’ve seen out there,”
Court Rye – Writing electric bike reviews and conversion kits reviews for five years.
In the fall of 2010, Court had the opportunity to take a close look at the Ridekick trailer, before it went into production. He crossed our paths again as we took the first production unit off the line.
Over the years, he has touched base with Ridekick International, and now has tried the updated and improved Ridekick trailer. See his Ridekick review video here.
Court is an expert on electric bikes and conversion kits. We appreciate his careful, candid look at the Ridekick trailer and respect his opinion.
