  • Successfully fit my Rover inside a Prius. Here's what I did: a) Fold down the Prius rear seats to maximize the cargo capacity. b) Remove pins supporting seat and lay seat all the way down until it touches the rear wheel c) Loosen the bolt at…
  • Swung by my Toyota dealer today with my Rover and tried to see if I could fit the Rover inside a Prius. It doesn't fit. Although with the rear seats folded flat, there is plenty of room and it looks like it should have no problem fitting in, bu…
  • So, did the Rover fit in your Prius? gt1948 wrote: fontmaster wrote: Anyone ever fit a Rover inside a Toyota Prius or Honda Insight? (or any similar sized high MPG sub-compact) Was wondering that also have 2010 Prius. Rover arrives Tuesday. W…
  • At my local Walmart, I saw some "Bell Universal Bicycle Bottle holder" kits. I picked up 2 kits and with some very minor modifications they easily installed on the support bars on either side of the seat. Looks nice and clean, and now I have 2 addi…

  • Ayer, Massachusetts weather forcast for next Saturday is sunny with a high of 52F. But an early morning ride would put the temps in the mid-40Fs - still a little chilly for me. Sunday afternoon should be a little warmer mid-upper 50Fs, but more c…
  • I can't wait for nicer weather also. Most of my yard is still covered with snow. Just finished installing a couple upgrades on my Rover 3-spd: - New S/A 8-speed rear wheel and shifter - New fenders on all 3 wheels - New Avid BB5 brakes Yeah!
  • How did you mount the water bottle to the side of the seat?
  • I think we're still here. December is not a good time to ride in New England. Perhaps we can meet-up in April or May?
  • No Terratrike club that I'm aware of. I live in central Mass and have a rover 3spd. Are you close by?
  • What's the "MY TERRATRIKE" menu for? My forum login doesn't work with it.
  • Had my Rover for almost 2 years now and just recently upgraded my pedals from "Power Grips" to "Nashbar Ragster II Cycling Sandals" & "Shimano M520L Mountain Pedals" based on recommendations in this forum. They are a huge step up in comfort and…
  • My year old Rover's SA 3-spd hub had problems after about 150 miles. No problems with 1st or 2nd gear, but suddenly one day 3rd gear started making all sorts of racket and then wouldn't free-wheel anymore. Everything was adjusted correctly, so I c…
  • Some photos from today's event:
  • The 2011 Human Powered Vehicle Festival in Ayer, Massachusetts is this Saturday. Here's their web-site:
  • UPS was also not very careful when delivering my Rover last summer. I noticed that the UPS driver had completely ignored carefully placed “THIS END UP” labels. When I rolled the cardboard box over to its upright position, I noticed a large tear in…
  • Just got off the phone with Lydia at Terra Trike, and the 3-spd hub has 2 year warrantee. So they'll be replacing it for free. :P Someday I'll consider upgrading to the 8-spd, or something else, but for now, with 2 kids in college, free is reall…
  • Got a 3-speed Rover last year about Labor day. Have ridden it about 150 miles since. I try to do my best to keep everything adjusted properly as any unexpected noise, squeak or rattle really bothers me. Thankfully Terra Trike does a great job hel…
  • Got my Rover last August. I installed my CatEye this way: This has worked great for me so far.
  • What year Toyota Matrix? Do you have to fold-down the front passenger seat? Which end goes in first? Pedals or rear wheel?
  • Cool. I like the headrest!
  • Thank you Kelli B. As a Rover 3-spd owner, it is nice to know that there is an upgrade path. Another question: Is the top gear on the 8-spd that much higher than the top gear on the 3-spd? Is the low gear on the 8-spd that much lower than th…
  • kellib wrote: If you are going to be riding mostly level ground you are going to want the 8 speed. It will give you a lot higher gearing so you don't look like a hamster on a wheel going nowhere fast If you are still unsure, you can upgrade to …
  • Sorry for taking so long to respond. Yes, the Ayer trail is the Nashua River rail trail:
