tips to buy an adapted van raam bike

Would you like to ride a bike, but it is no longer possible on a regular two-wheeled bicycle? In this article we give you 5 tips for buying an adapted bicycle.

Buying an adapted bicycle

Cycling is healthy and gives pleasure to many people. Therefore, it can be very frustrating when you can no longer cycle (independently) on a regular bicycle. Fortunately, there are plenty of alternatives. Think of tricycles, low step trough bikes or wheelchair bikes. Read below for 5 tips on buying an adapted bicycle.

Tip 1. Orient yourself on the different bicycles

Van Raam has several types of adapted bicycles in its assortment for people with disabilities. This varies from a two wheel bike with low step trough, to a rickshaw bike which can carry 2 passengers. People who have difficulty lifting their legs up high can probably still ride a two-wheel bike with low step trough independently. Persons with more severe disabilities may no longer be able to cycle independently, but they can perhaps ride together with a companion on a tandem or rickshaw bicycle.

Tip 2. Check out the different options for a adapted bicycle

Every adapted Van Raam bicycle is custom made for the customer. By adding extra options to a bike, you can customize your bike. You can see the different options on the price list, which can be found on the product page of the bicycle. It is also possible to configure your own bike in the online configurator. For more information about the configurator, read the article 'Put together your Van Raam bike with the bike configurator'.

Tip 4. See if you qualify for reimbursement

Some people are eligible for reimbursement for an adapted bicycle. This may be from the government or through health insurance. If you do not qualify for an reimbursement, you can buy the bicycle privately. You can use your own bank account for this, or raise money by fundraising. Read more about this in the article 'Tips for raising money for a special needs bike'.

Tip 5. Buy your adapted bicycle at a Van Raam dealer

Have you found a bicycle that suits your needs? Then buy it at a Van Raam dealer in your area. If you have taken a test ride at Van Raam, you have probably also received a quotation. With this quote you can buy your custom bike at the dealer.
