Trikkes are reliable vehicles, but like all things mechanical they occasionally require repairs. The most common repair involve new tires and tubes. Tube punctures do happen, but less often than on bicycles due to the Trikke’s thicker tires. More commonly the tire treads will wear down and require a new tire. The front tire wears out the most quickly, and you can expect to replace it about 2 to 3 times as often as the back tires. Another typical problem requires what is called a “head compression” to keep everything in the steering column tight and rattle-free.
