  • As to keeping up with the family, most of that depends on how in shape you are. You will go slower uphill, but don't worry about having to walk it up hills, as being able to stop and go on hills with ease is an advantage of trikes (not to mention th…
  • Unless you're going off road, a trike should go everywhere a bike. I prefer powerstraps over clip less pedals. I'd rather not have to change shoes to ride the trike. It would be one more reason to avoid taking trips around town instead of driving…

  • Is the Ayer reference to the Nashua River Trail ? I had to drive down from Maine last month and give it a try, as I had a hard time believing that there was a trail that flat in New England. Me and my nephew enjoyed riding it, and would return to…

  • Thanks bluerapids. My dealer already made the adjustments, but this is good to know for future reference.

  • Also, make sure the straps are tight on the seat. Aha! There's the culprit. I just had to tighten up the front most strap. Thanks!
  • Being my first cycling experience I have no frame of reference, but I think I have a problem with the hub on my Rover 8. It seems when I shift up into third suddenly I'm often spinning my pedals to little effect as if it was still 2nd. The same e…
  • If you are talking about the Cateye Micro Wireless that Terratrike sells, there is a way to reset the trip data without resetting the whole device. Just press the mode and start/stop button at the same time, and the trip data you are in will all …
  • That's why I call my Rover my M.L.C.V. Mid Life Crisis Vehicle (or was it Mobile Lawn Chair Vehicle? . )
  • Very nice, very "McGyver" I was wondering how to attach the various accessories I wanted without the ability to use the accessory mount with the Rover. Thanks for sharing this.
