1. Check the rickshaw bike before you start cycling
Before you start cycling with the Chat rickshaw bike, check the following points:
- The functioning of the brakes
- The lighting
- The tires (is there enough air in them?)
- The battery status (is the battery fully charged?)
In addition, it is also important to adjust the bike properly to the rider. Make sure the handlebars and saddle are adjusted to the right height. You set the saddle height correctly by sitting on the bike and putting one foot on the pedal in the lowest position. In this situation, the leg should be stretched out, but still relaxed. The correct handlebar height is determined by the rider; this is the height that feels most comfortable.
2. Practice before you go out
The Chat rickshaw bike is a tricycle with a seat on the front of the bike. Logically, a rickshaw bike rides differently than a regular two-wheeler. Therefore, it is important to practice with the bike before you set off. Note that a rickshaw bicycle without persons in the seat cycles different than a rickshaw bicycle with persons in the seat. This is because the weight distribution is different. We therefore recommend to practice cycling with and without passengers.
