Remember when you or your children practiced power sliding on a Mattel’s Big Wheels trike? If you missed out, High Roller USA makes an adult-sized version that’s built to accommodate, shall we say, the more full-figured rider. The extra-wide 26-inch pneumatic front tire is mounted to an alloy wheel and is complemented by two 14-inch molded plastic rear wheels to create that spinout effect when turning sharply. The pedals are freewheeling for coasting, while the lever-style front brake is hand-controlled, just like any multi-speed bicycle. The padded seat is fully adjustable to assure a proper fit for riders up to 6’3″ and who weigh up to 275 pounds. The basic High Roller, which starts at $650, can be purchased online at
