  • http://ridekick.com/  I think the Ridekick model is by far the most compelling. They're in the midst of a model change-over now, though, and have not yet started shipping their new and much improved model. I have ours pre-ordered with them.…
  • I would do Rover or Rambler. Both have higher seat position which make them easier to get on and off.  There are a lot of disabled persons riding trikes, and TerraTrike is probably the leader in helping folks make modifications to suit their needs. …
  • Yeah, the Ridekick is the only reasonable answer, I think.  I've been looking at options for more than three years now.. knowing that one day the wife and I would need a little help on the hills and long rides with our Rover tandem.  Apparently Ride…
  • The RideKick seems like a GREAT solution. The only thing is, they're between model changes/upgrades, and won't have any new product available till 2015.  http://www.ridekick.com/
  • Hold that thought till next year? My wife and I will be taking our Rover Tandem up to a daughter's house in the area -- to ride all the trails we can for Rails-to-Trails Conservancy.  traillink.com  We've finished doing all 50 of the trails in Downs…
  • Yes, the IGH would be on my 'must have' list before taking this model seriously. All that folding, unfolding, carrying around, squeezed into tight spaces, thrown around in luggage handling by airline folks.. I wouldn't think of trusting a deraile…
  • By all means, Pilot, you need to ride it and get Hooked! We got the Rover Tandem a year and a half ago, and have enjoyed it immensely. We just finished riding all 49 of the trails listed on TrailLink http://tandemriding.blogspot.com/ They have a TTT…
  • My images are happier ones, more keenly in tune with Mr. Webster's view of things. He says both are mostly intransitive verbs.. ramble a : to move aimlessly from place to place b : to explore idly rove : to move aimlessly Now, isn't that be…
  • 83 inches. I hope it works for you!
  • Can you show us how the front of the trike is mounted on the car?
  • That's what the instructions say.
  • I hope you get a YES answer on this. We got our Rover tandem with IPS and think it is GREAT -- especially in our situation where one rider is significantly stronger at pedaling that is the other. When we were considering adding the tandem attachme…
  • Have you checked out the Patterson crank? You can search for references on this forum. Seems like that has been a suitable solution for quite a few folks.
  • BradY wrote: Universal Trike Carrier (UTC) by Terra Trike Can you point us to this online? I can't find it on the TT site.
  • You guys are having too much fun! The Captain mentions inline skating. I needed something like that to do really short trails for our work with TrailLink -- to not have to get the Rover Tandem up and down from the trailer, just for a few minutes' …
  • Here's my 'Amen'. The wife and I got our Rover a year ago now, then converted it to the tandem. Even with great local trails where we live, we quickly got tired of the always riding the same ones. Online I found TrailLink http://www.railstotrails…
  • Thanks so much for trying to put this together, Mark. I see the weather forecast is iffy for next Saturday; but if prospects turn better, the wife and I will likely come down your way for the day and/or more. We ride a Rover Tandem.. and LOVE IT! …
  • I can't find the invoice, but I think the tandem trailer was listed for $700-750. I just heard from Mike. Seems he's not building any more trailers. He was starting to get a lot of orders, then got a new day job that left him with no time for the…

  • Best wishes for getting in touch with Mike. You might also try this email address: mgulvik at gmail. We are still VERY satisfied with the tandem trailer we got from Mike last year. I hope he's still in business.
  • Music to my ears. Here listening to hear more.
  • Sdawson: Here's this. When we got our Rover 8 a year ago, we got just one trike and took turns riding it, the wife and I. If the boom is adjusted right, it's really easy to slide the seat back and forth for two different riders (different leg leng…
  • Turn right, lean right. Turn left, lean left. That's why it's called leaning *into* the turn.
  • Sdawson wrote: I'm going to order heel slings. Have you tried them. I got nervous reading about "foot suck". Great idea! I got the Power Grips Power Grip Straps Only from Amazon. Great price. Install and work fine. A lot cheaper than other …
  • Good for you! And welcome to the TerraTrike community! Your retirement and health profile sounds just like that of my wife, and she's been riding splendidly since last April! NO problem riding with those chronic back, hip, leg and knee issues! A…
  • Welcome to IL, Gary! My wife and I ride a Tandem Rover, but we live down in Decatur -- a little far to drive for a casual meeting up to ride. However, we did spend three days in your area last summer -- updating trails for TrailLink.com, the great …
  • wolfie621 wrote: I hope they bring a tandem us them would love to try one out myself. If they don't, you might take a little side trip down to San Antonio and test ride one at San Antonio Bike Tours. On their web site, they have pictures of a …
  • Are your tires properly inflated, Rik? Of course you can over-inflate them a bit if you want to. There no "stiff ride" consequence to that on the trainer. And, are you sure you're lined up on the trainer like the manual says -- not forcing the …
  • So glad to read you're finally up and going on your Rover! Don't be a stranger to the forum now. Be sure to keep us posted on your riding experience. I don't know anyone who's planned more carefully for the good days of riding you have ahead of y…
  • Keino, on those risers.. The Amazon page says.. Fits 24", 26", 27" and 700c wheels Doesn't mention our small 20" size. If you're using this with the standard 20" wheel, do you notice any problem with that? Do you still get a snug fit of the t…
