Okay, bit the bullet and bought the internal 8 due to the fact of traffic, getting used to the Rover, and sealed from the elements as I plan to ride in the snow this winter maybe.
My comments are not meant to be complaints, more observations and where I am at. Stuff happens, that's life.
The bicycle shop in La Grande, OR was not of much help is sizing the trike up. The older guy tried, but he didn't know what an X-seam was or how to adjust that. Whit, the repair guy was helpful but he had customers coming in too. But he was of help, though I bought the trike unadjusted to me.
I did get an extra set of luggage rack screws; they sold me a Bontrager luggage rack at 10% discount for buying it with the trike, and a complimentary flag and pole. Very nice of them to do that!
My thighs are too big and hit the bars. So going to have to order the wider bars tonight. The mechanic widened the bars out as far as he could, but that also created a strain on the brake level cable ends as my thighs are hitting those.
Cycle Computer Magnet Mount?
Interesting boom/seat stay screws & sexy paint job!
