Hi all. First post on this forum. Recently bought a used TT Rover SA-8. Not sure of its age (I'm thinking 1-2 yrs) but it seems to be in very good condition, showing not much sign of use. I have been perusing these and other forums and the Terratrike youtube channel to learn more, as I'm new to triking and haven't been on a bike in many years (I have balance disorder and vertigo, so a 2-wheeler is out of the question). I do not have much money to work with so needless to say, when I happened upon this used trike deal, I was very happy.
This Rover came with no chain tubes on it. Looks like the previous owner removed them or never installed them. Are the chain tubes really necessary? Some of the info online that I found suggested that they only add resistance and noise. With conflicting info out there, I'm not sure which is accurate. Would appreciate the advice of experts here. Thanks in advance!
