TRI-SLED GIZMO PHAT
Another FAT trike has made its appearance. With the popularity of fat trikes more manufacturers are coming out with their particular offering. This time it is Tri-Sled and they are calling their fat trike “Gizmo Phat”. That seems like a rather strange name, but hey, who cares. I guess in the scheme of things it matters not. I think it is a nice looking trike. Tri-Sled is an Australian manufacturer. Their “flagship” model is called Gizmo and so they continued with that name as part of the model name on a couple of other models they also offer. Did you follow that? Oh, never mind … it is not important.
As is often the case there is not much information available concerning this new model at this time. It does look interesting as the width of the trike has purposely been kept minimal so that it will fit thru small openings where many trikes could not go.
HERE is TriSled’s website. HERE is TriSled’s Facebook page. At the time I am composing this article I do not find any mention of this new model on their website, but it is shown (just announced) on their Facebook page.
As you can see it has a rear disc brake as well as the ones on the front wheels.
With no information to be found online about this new model there is not much more I can offer here and now. As you can see it has 20 inch tires. Here is what little they have said about this new model:
“Introducing ‘Gizmo Phat’….Trisled’s latest contribution to the Phat bike world! Featuring a hand crafted aircraft grade Cro-mo frame (like all Trisleds), Carbon fibre seat, and more compact 20×4” wheels. We’ve also kept the track width ‘Trisled Narrow’ … “
It will be interesting to see what happens as time passes. The FAT trike scene is getting more and more interesting all the time.
