Maintenance and Safety Videos
We’re as excited about your new trike. Our videos will help with safe riding and proper maintenance
We’re So Happy You’re Our Customer!!

Catrike Warranty & Registration
It’s pretty impressive that we’ve sold over 1000 Catrikes and we’ve NEVER had a customer warranty claim. But, someday, there will be a first. Rest assured that if you have ANY problems with your trike, we’ll service it right here in the shop. So, now that you’re home with your new Catrike, activate your warranty at www.catrike.com/registration.
We’ll show you where to find your serial number. We also encourage you to register your trike with your insurance provider and local law enforcement.
New Rider Safety
In this video, we reinforce critical safety topics we discussed in the shop:
- Turning Safely
- Braking Safely

Good safety habits take some time to become second nature, so we always advise, “Ride slow and turn slow until you’re absolutely comfortable on the trike”.
