Neat ride but why the high price in Canada?

A friend is considering one of these but Canadian Tire is asking $429.99 CAD (web price). The same cycle sells for $259.00 US at Walmart in the States right now. That’s about a $170 difference. Granted, Canadian Tire says they’ll assemble it for you “free”, but that’s a HUGE assembly charge built in, if that’s the reason.

There was a recent Canadian Tire sale on these, briefly bringing the cost down to $329.99. More reasonable, but our friend missed the sale… and there would still have been a $70 spread built in to cover that “free” assembly. That difference would easily cover the cost of a helmet and lights.

Note: the Meridian Adult Trike above is single speed.
