The CarryAll folding tricycle has three wheels and has a large sturdy wheelbase with two rear wheels that are 8-inch in tyre size.

No need to carry the folded tricycle into the MRT or bus or into food centres and shopping centres. We just fold and roll it everywhere when we cannot cycle it.
The CarryAll tricycle is designed by George Lin of Pacific Cycles, Taiwan who is a famous bicycle designer and manufacturer known for his performance foldable bikes and recumbent bikes for riders with special needs.
There is almost not one singular vehicle designed for non-cyclists in the world. The CarryAll foldable tricycle was designed in the 1990s and is suited for non-cyclists.

Folding and unfolding the CarryAll tricycle is as simple as folding and unfolding its sister bicycle, the CarryMe foldable bike! It takes just seconds to fold the adult foldable tricycle into a compact fold and then you can roll into the MRT and take it up onto the bus or even store it in a car boot!
It’s really quite simple. Here’s a full step-by step guide on how to fold and unfold your brand new CarryAll three-wheeled compact tricycle!
1. Unfold and lift the handlebars
Before you start, make sure your CarryAll tricycle is standing upright on its rear and trolley wheels. This will give you a stable and sturdy wheelbase for you to start to unfolding your tricycle.
Lift the lever to release it from the front stem. Turn it in an anti-clockwise direction to loose the catch lever. It will start to feel loose, the stop. Don’t unscrew it all the way out.
Tip: Just remember this little tip: Left - Loosen, Right -Tighten. Turning it to the left loosens the lever while turning it to the right tightens the levers.
Lift the stem up by the handle bars. Make sure the handles form a straight line.
When this done, just press the lever firmly back down to tighten and lock the front stem in place.
2. Release the seat tube
Lift the lever on the seat stem and loosen enough to lift the saddle up.
Tighten the lever and lower it to the catch at the bottom.
Slide the catch in to lock the seat in place.
3. Slide open the stem and main body
There is a catch that locks the seat stem to the frame. Press in the black button and lift it slightly so it is unlocked.
Hold onto the main stem and lift the seat stem up towards you. The tricycle becomes unfolded.
After unfolding, tighten the wheel clamp (above the front wheel). This is an important step in the unfolding mechanism as it will firmly hold the front stem in place as you pedal off into the sunset!
4. Unfold the bike pedals
The finishing step is to unfold your pedals. Simply lift them up and pop them in place.
It’s that simple! Your foldable CarryAll tricycle is now ready to accompany you on your bike rides even if you cannot cycle, cannot balance on two wheels, scared of falling off a bike!
Folding it back in is just as simple, just do the steps again but in reverse. There are some things to take note.
Loosen the wheel clamp above the front wheel, and position the seat stem parallel to the floor so that the rear wheels are on the floor, then lower the front stem. If the front stem has locked into the catch properly, you should hear a ‘click’ sound.
Press the latch behind the seat stem to unlock it from the frame, and lift it up.
Loosen the seat lever and lower the saddle. Turn it to the right, and hook the seat to the main frame. Tighten and push in the lever.
Unlock the lever on the handle, before lowering it all the way in. Tighten the clamp, which is now below the handles on the front.
