  • Ok Chonk where is the new "Stuff" for the RATS? {I think he changed his mind and decided to go with the "Tarantula".}.....just saying...
  • Wish you lived near, I'd have you bring it by to look at it and your rear wheel. "maybe" it could be straightened and you would only have to re-do the alignment.
  • I think it's gonna be a t-shirt or maybe a seat cover with something like this, but not the "Tarantula" but with a RAT on it.....{My 7 year old grand daughter named my RAT the"Tarantula"; so I took the seat cover and had it embroidered. I like the n…
  • Which crankset do you have on your trike? UNLESS I am wrong that Park should work, if you have a square ended BB axle. I've used min on Many 3 piece cranksets, even "octalink". Best wishes.

  • Thank you I did look at them; but $38 for a mount is way more than I want to spend.
  • How did you make the head light mount, please? I like that design!! What materials did you use; looks like a PVC piece to mount the light, but how'd you mount it to the front of the trike? Thank you!

  • Have a many years old Cateye CC-MC100W wireless computer that was on my Orbea Oiz mtn bike. Took it off when I sold the bike and mounted it on my RAT. Too bad they don't make it anymore. GREAT wireless computer, NOPE, Never zeroed out the total dist…
  • MY absolute pleasure Mike!! Shop is open anytime to anyone! Had fun late night chit chatting with you!
  • I got a set of the Jagwire Pro brake kit and two shifter kits in ORANGE!! They make my RAT look great! One way to cut and make the cable housing work correctly is to cut the housing with whatever you have, dremel wheel, dykes, whatever. You can use …
  • Very nice!!

  • If I remember right the BB you have is not really meant to be serviced. To check if it is ok take the chain off it and spin the crank and see/feel how smooth it spins. If it is rough/grindy/spins slow. It may be time to replace it. BUT based on what…

  • I've written you, never heard back? When you coming thru 'Cruces?
  • What trouble were you having with the pedals?
  • Oh ok, I'm here whenever for whatever I can help with.
  • What did you finally do about your BB?
  • PM me for my e-mail, please?

  • It was real easy to make and it weighs nothing, the rack was $97.00, and the aluminum angles were dirt cheap delivered from http://www.onlinemetals.com/. Then a minimal $$ for the bolts, nuts washers. I use two slip thru tiedown straps {anhttps://ww…

  • The pic of the bottom bracket bearings James R posted is what yours looks like. It really isn't rebuild-able. Too bad you don't live close I'd say bring it over and I'd show you how to check the bearings/bottom bracket. In order to check them you ne…
