  • Thanks for the explantion. I too am learning. I have a Rover i8 that soon will be a tandem, and was thinking about adding more gearing for more speed. I have a lot a learn
  • TECd, the real question, do you completely revome all the air oout of the tires with a vacuum pump, and then replace witn new air? LOLOLOL
  • Tspoon2 I am getting back into riding, and have read everything on this tandem forum. I have the Rover i8, soon to be a tandem. I watched a couple of videos on the SRAM Dual Drive. What a neat thing. I have low vision, so I won't be the Captain, …

  • I have read this thread. Very interesting. I am going to install the tandem kit on my Rover 8, very soon. Also plan on the IPS. Was wondering if using the IPS, and the Patterson together. Does the IPS still work? I am a newbie at this stuff, am r…

  • Hi garover2, sounds like you had a great ride, I have not been on the forum for a long time, don't know why, but just remembered to check this morning. Old man brain I guess. I have the 20" rear wheel, Its ok, I find sometimes that I wish I had the …
  • Hi ya Paul, thanks for the come back, and info. We used to ride the Katy Trail a lot, its surface is a chipped limestone, and those little buggers could and would work their way threw the tread threads, and a flat, a lot of them. So I order SLIME st…
  • The question: What is the narrowest tire I can use? Some where on this forum, and I can't find it quickly, someone i thought was going to use the Kayak tire, which if I remember correctly was 1.10 in. wide. I was told by the wrench at the LBS that 1…
  • Yes Rick and I will be at the Collinsville trailhead @ 9:00 AM, then over for the fritter then explore. Bill
  • Hey Marian, the Katy is always just a little harder, but WELL WORTH the ride, stop at the bike store in Augusta and get a Ted Drewe's. Out aroung Trelor, the trail is right next to the river, so cool, hey maybe next spring, summer, fall, we could g…

  • Hi Peter, thanks for the come back. I guess to get more gears, I would have to put a couple of chain rings on the crank. Correct? If I remember correctly, Utah Trikes make a kit with 2 chain rings, am I heading in the right direction. Probably what …
