  • ACK!  I named them as I had dealt with both of them through my zillions of questions.  TT being TT, I would assume that anyone would be good people. I assume 'Chonk' is still there?
  • Better late than never... I bought an early version of the Patterson drive.  For a number of reasons, I did not like it (NOTE: others DO like it).  After balking about the price for a long time, Ashley (UTT) finally talked me into buying a Mountain …
  • I would *call* TT, ask for Ben or Lydia, and discuss this with them.  I am sure they will come up with an answer that you will be pleased with.
  • I've read of a number of folks over on BROL that have used a 'RideKick' with their trike and are quite pleased with it.  I do agree that it seems to be the most simple solution to this issue. As an aside to the OP?  Have you driven/ridden all around…
  • A "Mountain Drive" is a lot of coin.  But after cringing and crying for multiple years, I finally did it about a year ago, and have never looked back or regretted it since.  Yes, it was the largest single purchase I've made since buying my Rover, bu…
  • Just a sidenote? On my Rover with a N360 in back with a 22T sprocket, I added a 'Mountain Drive' up front, to give me a low of 7GI.  Using this configuration was great, and while I am a big guy with lousy knees, I also don't put out a lot of power.…
  • When/if the stock brakes do fail, or if you become tired of needing to adjust them often, an upgrade to BB7 brakes is very, very sweet~!  More stopping power, easier to adjust, and you can go generally longer periods of time between adjustments. The…
  • Bumping this up a bit for the newer folks. As I have a different trike now, and my smaller wife now rides the Rover, I never got the chance to try out the new wider seat. I just want to stress that my Rover is a 'Gen One' bought in 2010 and while I …
  • I was going to say Big Apples for the win, then saw you are more interested in speed.  I too would agree with Kojaks.  I own a set, and have mounted them for special pavement only type rides when riding with others. For me (fat guy, bad knees, weak …
  • Lots of time and miles since I started this thread. I love my N360.  And bout a year ago I bit the bullet and bought a "Mountain Drive" from UTT (best pricing by a long shot at the time). The Rover is now being ridden by my lovely wife, who is a bit…
  • On my Gen One Rover I've been using these since 2010.  Makes it easier to center the wheel and get the chain tension right where I want it.

  • IMHO - it would be faster to pull the tires off and swap them, rather than pulling the wheels off and swapping them. One point, I believe the brake rotors themselves are meant to only rotate in one direction.
  • Sounds like it'll be fun~! I only wish I lived closer than I do...
  • Finally got around to buying, modding, and using this "Harbor Freight" cheap 2-bike trailer hitch rack, and turning it into a single cheap trike rack. You can see the post I wrote over on BROL here: http://www.bentrideronline.com/messageboard/showt…

  • I wear size 12EEEE shoes. I love my Ragsters!
  • Just an idea? Rather than removing completely the fender (front or rear), you may wish to consider modifying them instead? I shortened my rear fender, so I can easily remove the rear wheel without touching the rear fender or rack. And, while I …
  • To be very honest, if I could afford an ICE Adventure HD (and had that been available in 2010, I would have went that way myself), but it wasn't yet in production, and I don't now, nor did I then have the funds to even consider an ICE trike. My Rov…
  • More info from TT plus a few photos. TT confirmed that the total width at the top of the bars is a FIVE INCH gain in width. Based on that and the photos, I just ordered a set of them. I still rest my thighs on the edge of the steering arms whil…
  • A fast reply from TT this AM... Hi Peter, They are a complete new design. I will see if I can get a picture, but it will be difficult to see the difference. They are the same height and look of the standard Rover/Rambler handlebars, but 2.5” wi…
  • The 'old' modified ones, were simply stock arms, with the top cut off, and a bar-end mounted. I 'think' these new ones are different, but they say 2.5 inches total width increase. That is why I would love to see a stock bar sitting next to a new b…
  • Without better side-by-side photos, I can't see how you get two inches more width here? Are the new bars then also shorter? I would not want shorter bars at all personally. Does anyone know any other info?
  • It's all good. Baby steps beats killing yourself. It's warm but all rainy over here, so I've had only the one ride so far this year, not fun. When I got my hip replaced in '11, 3 miles around my house was all I could do for about 9 or 10 weeks. …

  • Congrats to you. I hope you end up loving riding as much as most of us do. Depending on your needs and desires, you can get very involved. Last year I did my first tour of 300+ miles on the GAP with my Rover. Here's a photo from my first rid…
