JR Drift Trikes was founded by Joe Rackley (JR, get it?) With a long history of collecting and building custom bikes along with a lifetime passion for going sideways - 25 years’ skateboarding, 20 years’ snowboarding and countless hours “getting it sideways” in various rear wheel drive cars - it was only a matter of time before drift triking became the next obsession.
After teaming up with bike nut Mark Meadows (owner of MilkBikes and general human encyclopedia of all things bike) the two formed the perfect partnership to bring drift triking to a whole new level.
Since first discovering drift triking on You Tube (like most people’s introduction to the sport), we wanted in! At the time, with only a handful of companies worldwide and no real UK brands we decided we had to get involved.
We wanted to bring this relatively cheap and extremely fun sport to the masses, so set about launching the JR Drift Trikes brand with this in mind. After some research and a few hours behind the bars of some prototype trikes we soon realised there was a huge amount of unchartered territory and room for improvement and innovation on what was already out there. We weren’t satisfied with entering the market with a run-of-mill product, so proceeded to spend countless hours developing and testing until we felt we were ready to drop a bomb on the already rapidly-growing industry.
Now, over 4 years since we started on this journey we’re supplying the worlds best trikers with our groundbreaking award winning parts.
