  • Chonk, I am glad to hear that. Sometimes I am accused of being in my own little world, but I knew I couldn't be the only one.
  • Missed opportunities.....

  • Finn, that's the thing, I would think it would add greatly to TT's bottom line. I, myself, fall into the having to wait til Monday thing, and then I forgets to call......so a simple thing takes far longer to take care of. Some tell me, "that's too m…
  • Ok, So I have got some grease coming, tires, tubes, new avid brake kit, several needed specialty tools. When they get here, my fun begins. I got some ss wheels as a gift-figured I'd change the look on the pro and maybe improve the ride with a wide…
  • I bought a cheap paniers set on e-bay, but not nearly the quality of TT stuff. I have the older rack top bag, no panniers.
  • I would pony up and get the TT bag.....doesn't it open up into paniers too? Ask for a discount since you bought the bike, most dealers will knock off a percentage.

  • Finn, I feel your burn.LOL!

  • And Happy New Year to all!
  • Merry Christmas to all! A balmy 12degrees here today, brrr. Hope you all are well and have a great 2018! TCEd, took me a while to convince friends that the rides were about fun, not competition. Slow down and experience the sights, sounds and sme…
  • It is gonna be nice for a few more days, so I am going to get the trike out again and be the guinea pig. I am thinking about vee tires.
  • What did ya get? I splurged on padded mesh seats.
  • I can honestly say, I didn't need anything, but have been wanting for awhile so....................I splurged, just a little.
  • I am $$$ lighter now. Forgot 1 item though , but really like the savings. Wish it was more often.
  • Depreciation? A trike is worth whatever someone is willing to pay, or is insured for. I chuckle when someone uses the depreciation thing in negotiation versus buying new. I politely tell them they called me at the advertised price and they are stand…
  • Maybe I need to stop more....people keep sayin I gotta few screws loose too!
  • Luckily, I live in a small town and the only two trikes(tandem pros) belong to me and the friend of mine I talked into buying one. When camping or trips to store, I use a cable lock. When camping or home or on rides, I usually have an extra measure …
  • Reason I went to a trike was to be easy on my back due to previous issues.I found that when my seat was adjusted too vertical, my back side did feel uncomfortable, reclined the seat back, and problem solved.Experiment and see what works best.

  • I use 2- COB(usb) set on strobe for rear, headlight on strobe on front, and a led whip. I have found that riding at dusk or dark, I am actually much easier to see. Those lights are bright.

  • I do stop. Usually for an ice cream. Great to have a destination....and reward.
  • As with anything mechanical, you can expect to have to replace things. Time and use, both have effects on things. Price is a deal if close. Bottom line is, if it is worth it to you, go for it.
  • Oh how I wish we had your problem......at least on the climb part of the hills. But we love the downhill side!

  • Thanks Trikebirder, I had run by the bike shop and told them what I needed and threy gave me the wrong one(did not have glasses with me). Anyway, was disappointed when I got home, so got online and ordered correct one. Took wrong one back. All is go…
