  • Love these mirrors, first thing I added to my Path when I bought it give years ago.
  • Finn59, would you mind posting a couple photos of the rack without the trike on it?
  • Someone on the BentRider.com forums stated that TT now offers this steering plate. Contacted TT and they confirmed that they do stock the plate, $29.95.
  • Between my wife's Rambler which I have ridden occasionally and a Gran Tourismo x20 I test rode, I would highly recommend the Gran Tourismo. The steering on the GT is smother, highly adjustable due to new bushing/ bearing design, the 24" rear wheel g…
  • Contacted Utah Trikes before I posted here asking if they might have one in stock or the drawing so I could make one. They responded within an hour stating they had none in stock and no longer had the drawing.
  • If you consider going the panniers route, Bike Nashbar offers their own brand of panniers as well as other brands. I use their panniers on both my Trek mountain bike as well as my TT Path.
  • Not knowing how close you are to St Louis or if you visit the area, the Bike Center is a one of TerraTrike's Premiere Dealers. They generally have a good selection of TT trikes on hand and are very knowledgeable in the product. My wife bought her Ra…
  • I went to my TT dealer two weeks ago on a Friday to test ride a Gran Tourismo but he had none in stock. He immediately called TT and ordered an X16 and an X20. Both trikes were at his shop the following Wednesday, the X20 was assembled on Thursday a…

  • I bought my Path 8 used in December of 2011 and was lucky that the previous owner installed pedals with SPD clips. Must admit that it took a bit to get used to them, but in my opinion this is the way to go. A bit off topic, but Ironman, would you…
  • I was able to test ride a Gran Tourismo last Friday at my local TT dealer. I have owned a Path 8 for over 5 years and like the low seat height and indirect steering of the Path. Having ridden my wife's Rambler, I honestly don't care for the taller s…

  • Captainbob is spot on. I've had my Path for over 5 years and I find the seat height perfect for me. With a possible upgrade in my future, I would of course want something similar in design and TT has gotten away from a low seat design. I'm only 67 a…
  • I collect and restore vintage British bicycles for a hobby, some with derailleurs, most with internally geared hubs. I prefer the IGH bikes as they are in fact more durable and easier to work on. IGH bikes have been around for over a hundred years a…

  • Ken, I see 10 days have past without an answer to your question. You may want to send an e-mail directly to TerraTrike with your question. They should be able to tell you if it is possible as well as how to install the IPS.
  • Rob, Thanks for posting this. I just checked my Path 8 and the previous owner installed the drive with the original torque arm and a clamp on cable stop. I sent e-mails to both Patterson for info on the optional cable stop and Utah Trikes regardi…
  • You may want to post this request on the Trident web site:

  • Rxman wrote: Hey Gary. I know you posted a while back, but just curious your thoughts on the Path after having it a while? Hi RXman, Loving the Path, though I still need to get more time in the saddle. Between my work schedule, fr4erquent t…
  • Assuming your Rover has an internal geared hub in the rear, and you want to replace that with a cassette/rear derailleur as well as a front derailleur system, you are looking at a small investment. On the other hand, ff you only want to supplemen…
  • There is no reason why you could not repaint your Rover. However, to do a proper job, I would highly recommend that you disassemble the trike down to the frame first, remove any decals and then clean it to remove any wax and oil residue. How you pre…
    in can you paint Comment by Gary May 2013
  • Jim, That looks like it was made for your trike! If the box sat a little closer to the seat, you could almost mount a headrest to it.
  • George, If you still have your Deluxe fender set and would be interested in selling, please PM me. gary

  • Thanks Jeff, I was able to register. How long do I have to use the 10% discount promo code? Gary
  • I've tried to register for the owner's club, but every time I enter my user name, the site checks for availibility and just keeps spinning. Is there an issue with the sign up process?
