I finally hit the jackpot of decent weather and time in order to get an 8 mile ride in today. The second ride and the longest one on my new Rambler.
Five good things and one mystery:
1. It was fun.
2. The trike and the components worked well with one exception noted below.
3. Cars and trucks gave me plenty of room, more than you get on an upright bike.
4. Although I was a little slower than on my upright bike, a lot of that had to do with me testing stuff out and a couple of stops for adjustments.
5. I definitely need to develop bent legs, but no hand, arm or neck soreness at the end.
Now for the mystery:
At the speeds of 9 to 12 mph or faster the left front wheel makes a ``schlang'' sound. I've heard the sound before and thought I'd solved it with a disc brake adjustment. I can't recreate the noise, it only occurs when riding. Does it have to do with weight on the bike? I ``loosened'' the disc brakes a little, but that didn't help. The fact that I can't recreate the sound off the road makes it hard to know what adjustment to make. I bought the Rambler at a LBS that is about 45 miles away so getting the dealer to adjust it is possible, but not preferable.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
