  • My old Path must be 6-8 years old and I ride it every day. I use WD40 Protective with white lithium grease to lubricate the shifter cable without removing it. Just wrapped a rag around the WD40 tube and each end of the cable to keep it from squirt…
  • I have used the Bell BMX tires with Kevlar belts for about four years now at 40 psi. I would guess I pump them up every 2 months when I notice peddling takes a little more effort. Last year I bought three on eBay for a little less than $10 apiece…
  • This computer on my wife's trike is typical of the cheap ones from China on eBay. It works fine. "Waterproof Cycle Bike Bicycle Wireless LCD Digital Computer Speedometer Odometer ITEM PRICE: US $5.24" It is probably as cheap to replace the com…
  • Colorado front range a little north of Denver. My face doesn't get particularly cold, it is the whole body. Long underwear and a couple of fleece layers under the windbreaker work pretty well. Old windproof mittens from Nashbar are great. No bre…
  • I usually skip the ride if it is below 20 deg F and over 90 deg F. [/quote] Make that 30 deg F. I am getting too skinny to ride at 20 deg.
  • Three years later...Whew! I just installed a new set of the Bell BMX tires. I could see the belt in a few spots on the right front tire. The front tires wear evenly but I was surprised the rear tire wasn't worn out. It could have gone another ye…
  • Every day at 1:15 pm to avoid an afternoon nap.

  • I changed my Legacy Path wheels to Schrader from Presta valves with a reamer. Just enlarge the holes until the new valve stems fit.
  • Nearly a month using the slings I feel they are a success. They are well designed and the sling slips into the lower back of my sandals automatically.
  • JamesR wrote: » something of this nature might help: https://www.crampbuster.com/ search similar: motorcycle throttle assist Interesting, but the installation video implies it is a one-way device. Motorcycle throttles have a spring return. …
  • I quit using slime because it clogged the valve core and caused slow leaks. It is really a mess to remove the fine fiber used in slime from a Schrader valve core. I replaced my Presta tubes after reaming the hole to fit the Schrader valves to simp…
  • That didn't work for me either. My problem is simply old age and weaker muscles. My daily ride is my only source of aerobic exercise. It is a two to four mile round trip, summer and winter, to my local library. Only piles of plowed snow at the b…

  • My evidence was a black and blue foot that I could barely walk on for over a month. After riding with Power Grips for nine years, the slings do feel odd. My feet feel like they are slipping out of nonexistent power grips.
  • The grips on this old path are vertical. There would no problem if they were near horizontal. I do wear gloves but the shifter is down between my little finger and third finger.
  • I'll try pictures again

  • I knew I posted a picture the other day but forgot how I did it. It isn't very straightforward.
  • Part of the problem was the tread on the soles of my TEVA sandals is getting worn.
  • I installed three new Bell BMX tires, reamed out the rear wheel valve hole to fit a Schrader valve, and installed a new tube. I am all set for winter riding.
  • Replaced the 46T front chain ring with a 40T chain ring from Terratrike and removed three chain links. Riding over the parkway isn't easy but at least I can do it now.
  • Another stock tire started to bulge a little so between Rite Aid and eBay I managed to get two new Bell BMX tires with Kevlar and now my old Path is ready for winter. Between the slightly larger rear wheel diameter because of the new rear tire and …
  • I put a 20x2.15 Bell Platinum Series BMX Bike Tire on my rear wheel with no problem at all.
  • It was easier to go out in a cold garage and replace the smooth washer under the hex screw head with a lock washer. While I was at it, I put a lock washer on the other end of the screw before replacing it in the idler/tension arm. The U-shaped cha…
