  • And the reasons for and benefits of getting it off the floor/ground are ?????
  • I want to clarify why I asked what I did. I first purchased a 3-speed Rover. Shortly thereafter I got an 8-speed Rover. The location of the boom differed on these two bikes. Not sure why, but .... Anyway, I've been able to find a "comfortable" place…
  • You can move your seat anywhere you would like, but the optimal position is right behind the last bolt in the frame. I don't mean to ask the obvious, but I don't understand what you mean by "optimal position"? Why is that location "optimal"? Wou…
  • Thanks a lot for the picture. I was interested as my girlfriend, who now has the 3-speed Rover I first got, is looking at new cars and would like to be able to put the Trike inside rather than on a rear rack. I had never thought of the Matrix, but n…
  • Don't mean to be impatient, but pictures???????
  • Captainbob, any chance of your posting some pictures of how you put your bike into your car? Taking it apart - how much?, and so on. And how it fits inside the vehicle? Thanks
  • I see where you installed your computer on the left handlebar. What do you have below it? Just curious. Plus, what benefits do you get from the fender on the rear? With the dog trailer, I can see how the dog could get a benefit, but anything else? I…
  • Let us know the result of all this, as I also have a noisy fourth gear! I've tried to adjust things according to the gear instructions, but the noise is still there - kind of a buzzing, I guess, or a hum. Of course, the noise actually helps me know…
  • I also need to disassemble my Rover 3 for transportation. I know there is a video on the TerraTrike site, but are they any printed instructions or other help? I haven't tried this yet, as I have a bit of fear about doing it. But .... Any advice or h…
  • During my ride today I did a lot of thinking about my desire for higher gears. I began to realize that it is part of an obsession I've had all my life, that is to get somewhere, accomplish something, be in a hurry to get there. Instead, I tried to j…
  • The highest gear in the 8 speed is pretty high, and unless you are going downhill, I doubt if you are going to need a higher gear. I can pedal up to well over 20 miles an hour in the 8th gear, without "spinning out" or having to "over rev" my ped…
  • Thanks for the responses. I checked out several other posts about gears, and I think I'm finally getting a grasp on it. I'm an old fart, yet I haven't been into biking until now, so I don't have the background many others seem to have, especially ab…
  • Well, I got smart and checked the Accessories part of the Forum, and, guess what, someone had asked that question and someone had posted pix and Voila, I could see how it worked! So, I think I'm all set. Thanks. Howard :oops:
  • I'm sorry Kelli, but I'm an Old Fart and just can't figure out how the Bottle Cage Bracket works and how to mount it. I purchased one, and I've just stared at it so far. Any help would be appreciated. Howard
