    Purchased my Traveler May 2017 in Tucson AZ. Brought back to Nebraska and rode about 200 miles and the tires were showing tubes. I sent pictures to TerraTrike and they responded with the alignment issue, plus making sure quick release levers on hinge points were snug. Since then I have around 2500+ miles on the trike. Part of my weekly checklist is to verify alignment and hinges. However, I am on my 4th set of front tires since purchase. 1st set was factory, didn't last long because of alignment. The 2nd set were some Kenda Basic and they did a bulk of the 2500+ miles. The 3rd set were the factory tires TT sent out. I logged about 900 miles on them. They still have a few miles, (definitely showing wear) but I swapped them out (plus the rear, it was still the original) for some Schwalbe Marathon HS Wire Bead Tires. I ride on hard surfaces for most of my daily treks. I would like to think 2000-3000 miles/set of front tires would be minimum. Maybe asking too much.

      Thanks, I am working with the dealer and Terra they aligned the bike put new tires on and two weeks later they started showing wear after only riding about 8 miles a day. I am taking it back in tomorrow to have the camber measured. Hope to have it back soon.

    greetings! cranedom-

    car-free type, looking at alternatives to trailers. terracycle cargomonster looked interesting but that takes money or fab capabilities to make useful. turns out the frame was wobbly, now re-designed they say.

    frame only, you need to mod the seat supports for decent cargoplatform. need a bottom bracket and a double chainring
    to break up single long chain droop - or a double idler set. i used a 22/32, 32 as the timing chain from the front sprocket and the 22 rearward served to gear down for hill climbs. had a nexus rear wheel.

    college town here - 50,000 students when uf and santa fe college are in session. did test rides but concluded werent safe to abandon my usual sidewalk routes and switch to alleged bike lanes. quieter traffic flow would have mounted a wooden cargo box.

    could be fun project, quite doable.

    Greetings Jamesr,
    I saw in one of you posts you said
    "bought the tandem frame extension as a separate piece with intent of making a longtail cargo trike. not one of my better ideas, but "

    I think this is a fantastic idea and one I was planning on. How did you do with this project? Why did it go bad?
    Thanks,
    Cameorn

    Hello. In AUG 2017 you mentioned having installed an Altus derailleur Rear, and efneo Front, giving you 24 useable, perfect shifting gears on your Rover Tandem. I am about to purchase a Rover Tandem and want to improve my gear options also. I am planning on getting IPS. With the IPS, wouldn't the efneo on the front only affect the captain, and not the stoker?

    Thanks for your insight, and how is the tandem working out for you since the changes you made?

  • Tackled the Weiser River Trail again this year, on June 2nd. Had a bit more of a challenging ride this year, although I managed to ride it despite the odds I faced. :)

  • I have rented/rode the Tandem Pro a couple of times. I want to buy a tandem recumbent to ride with my adult son with a cognitive disability. He can pedal for hours and loves it!
