    Wheel is shot. I have now become aware that this is a major problem with this model trike. The solution of course is to replace the wheel, maybe re-spoke it with stronger spokes. From what others are saying, the wheel cannot handle speeds better than about 10mph and what happened today proves this. Cheap junk I guess. So here is my next question. Does anyone make a trike replacement wheel besides schwinn's junk that can handle the speeds and fit my trike or am I hosed at this point? A shame if it cannot be made to work out.

    Thanks for any help fellow members.

    Aren't the spokes and rim standard? I have heard of people getting rims off of a donor mountain bike. Likewise, people are using 10 and 12 gauge spokes. I am only passing along what I have read, not gospel.
