  • After thinking about it I've decided to drop the asking price a bit to make this more buyer friendly. Hoping to get pictures up soon, but it looks just like every other stock Path, just with 3 chainrings and a deraileur upfront.
  • I'm selling my 2011 Terra Trike Path 8 that was upgraded to a 24 speed. You can read about it here:

  • I may have a medium boom for a path available in a day or two. I'm am swapping my medium for a short for my daughter since she got my hand-me-down trike. I'm not sure if the LBS is going to keep the medium boom as part of the price of the swap or …
  • Based on some research I will try to answer your questions... Disclaimer: I'm probably wrong 1) Cogged idlers create less friction, transfer power more efficently and create less noise. This means any time the idler comes in contact with a part…
  • I picked my newly upgraded Path up from the shop this weekend. For a few Benjamins my stock Path 8 is now a custom Path 24 still using the internal 8 speed hub. Based on my calculations I've gone from a 35" - 109" gear range to a 18" - 102" inch r…
  • @Claggart: Any luck with the sanyo? I am considering this myself for my Path 24 and would appreciate any information you might have.
  • I would second the RideKick trailer option. My wife isn't nearly as strong a cyclist as I am and she has been using one to keep up with me (and pass me on the hills) on my weekly 40 mile rides. She only uses it when she has to and since the wheels…
  • I use a Tractor Supply 4x6 trailer attached to my Pontiac Vibe (Toyota Matrix) to haul my path and The Wife's rover. One warning about using a trailer... they are designed to haul considerably more weight than just a couple of trikes and gear. Unl…
  • Adding accessories or making upgrades does increase the value, to you! I know that no matter what I do to my trike to upgrade/customize it, I am never going to get 100% of the value back. If I ever decide to get rid of it, I'll be happy with 50%. …

  • I agree that the fenders are great for keeping stuff off you, but they have a serious design flaw. The little 2mm screws that attach the stays to the fenders/brackets vibrate loose very easily and once they do the fender rattles horribly. Even wit…
  • The sturmey-archer hubs are known for being very 'talkative'. If you've never had one before when they first find their 'voice' it can be disconcerting, but once you learn what they are saying you will come to appreciate it. I can pretty much tell…

  • Shawn, I've been reading your posts about the problems you have been having and I would like to help if possible. I have a path 8 and my wife has a Rover and I have been doing a lot of tinkering with them (when I'm not riding) since we got them a …
  • i would have to say, my wife. rides just aren't as much fun when she's not with me.

  • Yeah I have to give them major kudos on that. So far I'm totally loving my TerraTrike experience.
  • Thanks for the offer Rod, but I received the fenders last night (along with the luggage rack). The fenders are very easy to install. I do have an issue with one of the fenders, but I've contacted TerraTrike and hope to hear back from them soon.

  • Yes please on the pictures! The commuter bag looked perfect for my needs, but I guess I need to find an alternative. Happy riding.

  • Jim and everyone from Fairfield Cyclery are the absolute best!! I've ridden with them and really enjoyed myself. I look forward to the weekly rides every week, even though as luck has had it I've only made it once.
  • How did I know that was coming... I will try to get some today, but the digi-cam has been on the fritz lately. A few days late, but here goes. These were taken in the late evening with my cellphone, so they aren't the best quality. Full view …
  • I ended up retro-fitting my Topeak rack onto my path. it sticks up about 6 inches above the tire, so there should be plenty of room for the fenders when I get them. the only downfall is after reclining the seat a few notches, my head now bumps int…
  • Yep, picked it up a little over 3 weeks ago. I've already put about 500 miles on it. So far I am loving it and look forward to going riding every night. The Wife isn't quite as thrilled with her Rover. It's not the Rover's fault, she just isn't …
  • This is what I would like in my spare parts kit. - 2 of every size nut, bolt and washer used on the trike (not 2 of every one, just 2 of every different size) - 2 extra seat adjustment pins - 3 valve caps - 1 set buckle (like the ones used on th…
