Bought a new Rover i8 IGH with 26" rear wheel yesterday from Sun Cyclery in Phoenix,Az. Fantastic service. They spent a lot of time fitting it to me. When I told Josh what I wanted we walked a few steps and there was my baby all tricked out! First one I had ever seen in the flesh. He told me how to get on it and after a few adjustments, I rode around in the parking lot. Absolutely fantastic.
I am 76, lower back surgery, both rotator cuffs repaired, one a 100% tear and left knee scoped twice, right knee once.
Rode it on maiden trip this morning:3.36 miles, average speed 6.3, 32 minutes, max speed 12.3, according to my wireless Cateye Patrone computer. I could have gone longer but didn't want to wear out my welcome on the first day. Wanted to go this afternoon, but too hot and not a good plan.
Ride: very acceptable. Steering: instant without being overly sensitive. Braking: excellent. Double rear view mirrors:great. Gear shifting: near automatic without even thinking about it. When a different gear was need just shifted. No big grades or dips on our residential roads.
I am ecstatic with my new trike. Probably would like a Rambler even more if I could afford one. Any Cat was out if the question.
If you are looking for a trike anywhere near Phoenix, Sun Cyclery is the place to go. They were very highly recommended to me and Sun met all my needs very well.
