My friend has one and they ride like a slug because you usually don't pump up the tires that much.

have you tried riding one with 25-30psi in the tires? maybe that will be better? im not much of a speed guy i just like the monster truck bike look. plus i always thought mountain bikes would be best with bigger tires and no suspension.

He was running about 15-17 psi in them. They felt quite bouncy. On my freeride bike I have 2.4's and unless i have 40-45 it feels like driving a monster truck

lol, the rokon. i rode one once, what an odd machine. it's not street legal though. probably due to the fact that it can barely hit 20mph.

that guy stole that bike from my avatar haha...
yea everyone had atc110s and atc125s growing up and i had a rokon trailbreaker.. lots of fun going off the trail or "trailbreaking" in fact its the best thing to be on for going where there is no trails (some of my fav riding).. nothing beats it in off camber situations.. if i was in the nj flatlands my 1984 yamaha yamahaller 200 is my second fav.. shaft drive trike with 25 inch tires and the motor almost on the rear wheels you cant go wrong..
