I have a trekker model trike, that I have purchased a few months ago. I am finding it very difficult to rise up off of the seat, even at the highest adjustment point. I must point out that I do have some disabilities that are making this task a little tougher. I had another brand of trike before this one with a much higher seat, but I thought I would be able to master this one. I presently have a piece of thick foam strapped to the bike seat cushion, which gives me approximately 2 more inches of height, and makes my task of getting off of the bike manageable. I am now looking to have a more permanent solution, in the brackets of the trike. I am wondering if anyone has experienced this already and has come up with a solution? I would appreciate any feedback that people could give me.
