Keep your bike’s chain and drivetrain lubricated for optimal performance and protection. This should be done whenever it squeaks, appears dry, or at least once a month. Lubrication protects these moving parts from excessive wear caused by friction and rust.

I purchased this ATV here instead of Amazon and I’m so glad I did. The service was so good and it arrived so quickly just in time for my son’s birthday. I will be a loyal customer to this company. The ATV is really fun and was easy to put together. My son loves it !!
I was so excited when it arrived. Lots of fun cruising the neighborhood. I would like a deck with a seat though. All in all, well worth the money.
Had a car accident that left me with nerve pain in legs and lower back and unbalanced. The three different pedaling modes helps alot, fir when I'm in too much pain to make it back to our destination. I purchased this so I could still ride bikes with my 7 year old son. We are the talk of the trails in our town. I am 337lbs and it holds me well and I feel safe enough to go the 14 mph or faster on hills.
