For sale: Plus-size wheelset and components for Rambler

I have available some larger wheels and related support hardware to help convert your Rambler to an all-roader and/or a "plus" (3-in wide tires) or "fat" (4-in tires) trike. The wheel set offered here is functionally similar to that offered by Terratrike in their 24” All-Road Wheel Package, but with handmade wheels and wider rims to accommodate wider tires if desired.

It's been a lot of fun trying different configurations on the Rambler.  It's a very versatile base for this, and considerably less expensive than dedicated fat-trikes that are showing up on the market.

Although I developed and tested this on a Rambler, I suppose these could be used on similar trikes also.

If any questions, please holler.

Thanks

Ray
