  • That's a real good price for a new Patterson crank, I'm just a little too late for it though. 
  • I am finally having my (useless to me) Rover upgraded with a Patterson crank and a Nexus 8 so I have a suitable stand-in or spare for my other upgraded Rover of 4 years, both the Alfine 8 and the HSD Schlumpf and BB 7  have served me well with over …

  • You will not be sorry you got the HSD Schlumpf 27T, derailleur free may also prove to be trouble free as well if the installers of the Schlumpfs know how to install them correctly. I have a HSD Schlumpf 27T on my Rover, with a nice straight chainli…

  • NY did have a cool weather last week and it was real nice for riding but tomorrow or now, today we Are expecting 90s or so for a couple of days and then cooler after Thursday again. It all depends on how MA MA Nature is feeling from than on. :rol…
  • I have read that alternating trike tires is recommended for maximum performance and tire wear, just make sure they are in the same original direction. It made sense to me.
  • Go to the Rover page #8 down that page you will find Peter C's post I believe you are looking for, posted on May 12, 2011 at 4:10 PM, I remember it well.

  • Hi: Marian, I Just read all of these threads and want to say that I bought the Lasco short cranks at UTAH TRIKES with the 22/32/42 triples chainrings and only used the single 22T chainring on my Rover 8 to help me climb a tuff 12%, 1600 ft long grad…
