Q: Are Hydrobikes reliable?
A: Extremely. Hydrobikes are built for commercial purposes. Hydrobikes are famous for long life. We designed and built our first advanced technology drivetrain a quarter century ago. They have been torture tested, and build tough to endure heavy usage under extreme conditions. The Hydrobike drivetrain has proven over 25 years to be the strongest, most durable pedal powered drive system in the industry.
Hydrobikes are the Rolls Royce of water bikes. With simple maintenance your Hydrobike will provide many, many years of trouble free enjoyment. We have 20+ year old Hydrobikes still gracing waterways worldwide. Quality is evident in every feature. As a rental unit, Hydrobike reliability means year after year of consistent revenue generation.
Q: Do Hydrobikes come assembled? Are they hard to put together?
A: Hydrobikes come in 3 boxes. 2 long pontoon boxes, and 1 frame box. Initial assembly takes 20 – 30 minutes with only a small adjustable, or crescent wrench to tighten the seat required. After that, assembly and disassembly takes just a few minutes. The entire bike is held together by 8 hand tightened frame knobs. An assembly guide comes with your Owners Manual. I provide supplementary information and guidance on the phone if you need it. You can see the basics here in this video. Since this video was made, we’ve made assembly even easier for you.
Q: What kind of maintenance is required?
A: Very little. Hydrobikes can be operated in freshwater or saltwater. You will be lubricating your chain now and then just as you would a bicycle chain. A saltwater maintenance schedule is included in your owner’s manual. Annually, it’s a good idea to replace the oil in the drive unit. This is a simple task that can be accomplished in minutes. We have the necessary oil kits. Just give us a call at 1-888-403-9012.
Q: How much does a Hydrobike weigh? What are the dimensions when assembled?
A: The hydrobike is 10′ long, 55″ wide, and 53″ high when assembled, and weighs about 120 lbs with the front storage console installed.
It can easily be carried / lifted by two people, or dragged by one person by use of the pontoon carrying straps.
You can also disassemble the Hydrobike quickly and transport in pieces to the waters edge or dock. The heaviest components are 35 – 45 lbs.
Q: I’m a senior. Will I be able to handle the Hydrobike? How can I get it up on the dock?
A: Yes! Not only can seniors handle the Hydrobike, they are among our largest customer group. Hydrobikes not only offer a low impact, easy exercise and rehab activity, we’ve also built it with everyone from 8 – 80 in mind. The bottom of the pontoons narrow down making them very easy to slide up onto the dock if needed thanks to the handy carrying straps on each pontoon end. You can grab a strap in each hand and slide the Hydrobike up onto the dock.
If your water level is low, you can get a helper to lift one side while you lift the other. Of course you can leave the Hydrobike in the water, or pull it up onto shore. Whatever is best for you, Hydrobikes have accommodated all scenarios. Seniors love Hydrobikes. You will too!
Q: Is the Hydrobike safe? Will it tip?
A: Hydrobikes are extremely stable. They are unsinkable and virtually impossible to tip. 250 – 300 lb riders can jump up and down on side decks without tipping, or ride in 4-5 foot waves. You can jump off and climb back aboard without tipping.
You can even bring your the dog along for a ride! They are designed to safely carry 400 pounds of rider, cargo, and passengers. Hydrobikes are 10 ft. long and almost 5 ft. wide.
They are far more stable than canoes, kayaks, and fishing kayaks … and many small boats. The Hydrobike safety and stability has made them the choice of many discerning groups like US State and Municipal Parks, Water Parks, Kids Camps, Premier Resorts, Hilton, Hyatt, and Marriott Hotels, and water sport rental outlets worldwide.
Q: How can I become a Hydrobike dealer or start a Hydrobike rental business?
A: Give John a call at 1-888-403-9012. I can set Hydrobike dealers up in a protected territory and offer marketing assistance to help you succeed. Dealers must be focused on selling. They must promote the Hydrobikes to traditional targets in their respective areas. I will provide you with a list of your target audience. I also offer free Hydrobike rental business consulting. I can set you up with insurance, waivers, and help get you location approvals.
I’ve been involved in the sale and rental of Hydrobikes since 1999. I have much experience to share! Call me today, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Are Hydrobikes easy to ride?
There is no balance, skill, or extra strength required. The spinning propeller underwater offers very little resistance but offers great efficiency. You’ll be amazed how quickly you move away from the dock or shoreline. You pedal forward, and you pedal in reverse to go backwards or assist in stopping. By turning the front rudder in slight movement left or right you will move in those directions. You can also turn the rudder a greater distance left or right and use it as a brake to come to a complete stop. Our watercraft is extremely easy and safe to operate. There are no gears or brakes. Seat and handlebar height is adjustable to accommodate people of all sizes. This is an activity that your entire family will enjoy in complete safety.
A: Hydrobike floats are unsinkable! They are virtually indestructible. For this reason our pontoons are used by emergency and rescue forces for lifesaving applications 12 months of the year.
We designed and built our own pontoon molds. They are rotationally molded, seamless, and composed of high density polyethylene. This process ensures maximum strength, durability, and fail safe flotation. Our pontoons come in different colors. Our high visibility safety yellow colored pontoon gives you maximum safety on the water.
Q: Do I need a trailer, truck or van to transport the Hydrobike?
A: No. Hydrobikes can easily be transported, even in small cars. The floats fasten to roof racks and the rest of the Hydrobike can be carried inside the car. If you do not have a roof rack, you can visit any canoe or kayak outlet to purchase the foam supports to rest the pontoons on. Of course a pickup truck, van, or SUV can handle all the components easily.
Our handy highway ready HydroPal trailer is your perfect compliment.
It can carry one or two Hydrobikes. I can discount the trailer below published prices for all Hydrobike purchases. You can also purchase this trailer separately. It carries canoes and kayaks nicely.
Q: Where do I get Hydrobike parts or service?
A: You can view our Hydrobike parts list here. Don’t worry if you’re not sure what you need. I can figure that out for you. Contact John at 1-888-403-9012, or by email at email@example.com. We have all original parts in stock. I may be able to point you to a dealer in your area. I can take your order over the phone and get it processed with credit card information. I can also help you with installation of all parts. I have ready made instruction files I can send over quickly via email. Required parts can be sent overnight via UPS if you need them quickly. Installation of all parts is quite simple. In any event, I’m here to help you get back on the water as soon as possible.
