  • In the 1960s, Ray Lohr, head designer for Louis Marx & Co., took apart a tricycle, mixed up the parts, and reassembled them into an upside down trike that handled like a race car. The new kind of trike owed its novelty and high performance to its design. On old steel tricycles, the rider perched on a seat above the drive wheel—and pitched over on sharp turns. And traditional tricycles did not have much speed. But the Big Wheel rode only a few inches off the pavement, allowing high-speed skid-outs on slanted or uneven surfaces. Molded plastic construction cushioned the jolts. Kids on Big Wheels sought out bumps, corners, and pavements where they could pick up speed. Even older children thrilled at the g-forces. The Big Wheel also gave them mobility along with a measure of independence.

    The Big Wheel Drift Trike that reportedly being one of the most rapidly growing sports around the world, is an adult-size motorized tricycle created for the increasingly popular world of stunt trike drifting. The Drift Trike features a 26-inch by 3.5-inch wheel that adds stability to the motorized vehicle. It’s powered by a 6.5 hp (4.8 kW) motor and boasts thicker PVC sleeves wrapped around the rear wheels to create the loss of traction.

  • The Big Wheel’s popularity outlived the company that first introduced it. When Marx went out of business in 1985, Carolina Enterprises, known later as Enterprise Industries, produced the Big Wheel for a second generation of mobile American kids. Coleco offered a similar vehicle, as did Playskool, Gearbox Toys, General Foam Plastics, and Razor USA. Today, the Big Wheel has been revitalized by Alpha International, Inc. of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, to carry new generations of kids on sidewalk adventures.

    The original Big Wheel® provided fun play for millions of children and enhanced the early development of their motor skills. Because of its huge popularity, many of today's parents have special childhood memories that include endless hours of joy on their Big Wheel®.

    What you don’t see in this picture is that there will a plastic front wheel cover that is printed with a graphic inspired by the 1974 Marx Big Wheel front wheel.

Adult Big Wheel? Yes, please. Then we can show a thing or two.

We purchased 3 of these big wheels for my kids. While putting them together, the first one we broke the clip that holds on the back wheels. So it kept falling off while my kids were riding it. On the second one we got the back wheels on but the pedal kept falling off. Needless to say by the third one, we were pros. We got it together with no broken pieces. My husband was able to go to the local hardware store and purchase parts to replace the broken ones (better parts then what it came with). These are not as good as the original big wheels we had as kids. Things aren't made as good as they used to be. My kids love the bikes but we'll have to see how long they last.
