  • Most cycle computers should work, and mount on the front wheel just fine. The settings may need to be adjusted. Any local bike shop should be able to help you, or you can call and talk to our technicians for assistance.  616-455-5988
  • Great to hear, Ramblerman!! as lrogers said, I think you would love the 26" rear wheel upgrade! Keep Triking!
  • There is a Rover boom mount available on the website. It's called the accessory mount - Roverhttp://shop.terratrike.com/Accessory-Mount-Rover-p/tt600109.htm
  • Were you able to make it up hills before, or has this always been an issue? The hub may need to be adjusted.
  • Majority of the time the steering just needs to be adjusted. You can do this by loosening the side bolt at the base of your handlebar, and then loosening or tightening the top bolt on the base of the handlebar to your preference. This will make the …
  • I may know of someone that is interested. Two more questions: I thought I would ask them on here in case someone else wants to know as well. 1) What size is the boom?2) What is your asking price?
  • Where are you located?
  • If your heel is hitting the crossbar then you won't want to move the boom in any further. By saying that you have the seat all the way forward, do you mean as far forward as physically possible or to the sticker? If you can physically move it furthe…
  • Hi GemS, I am sorry to hear that you drove so far just to find out that you had to turn around. We did make a post on the website on either Monday or Tuesday (7th or 8th) of the upcoming closed hours. It was definitely not our intent to frustrate or…

  • The chain tubes also keep the chain from hitting the frame and seat frame. They are used more to protect the trike over anything else, and second your pant leg from getting caught in the chain. Take a look to see how close it is near the rear wheel …
  • The Maxxis Hookworm tires are great!! We haven't had the best results when testing the solid tires on trikes, and I recommend using tires that require tubes. There are still some really great puncture resistant ones out there!  I don't know if there…

  • The total weight/load on the trike, whether that be just the rider, or the rider and luggage, must be within the load limit.

  • [(chainring)/(Cog)] x (Wheel Size) Your calculations do sound right. When doing the wheel size, I don't usually use the exact size, because you have to think of your weight on the trike when riding. This is what I calculated: 42/11 x 25.5 = 97.…

  • Sorry for my delayed response: The All Road Package is really made for the Rambler. We did try it out on the Traveler and it's doable, but doesn't allow the Traveler to fold as small as you would like it to. Regarding the release date of the T…
  • Yes they are. These are items that you will need to call and order. They vary in price and size depending the trike you are needing them for.
  • The Sturmey Archer hubs have a 1 year warranty, if it's after that and you have issues, it's up to you what you would like to do; we have a couple different options. If you're taking care of your Sturmey Archer hub, they are very reliable. Most of t…
  • Yes, there are many TerraTrike riders out there that have had trikes paid for through insurance. You want to get your doctor or physical therapist on board, and they need to write a letter of medical necessity or a prescription; the more detailed th…
  • We are still unsure if/how the custom colors will work on the Traveler. It becomes a bit more complicated and still need to have our powder-coater inspect the frames and let us know if it is possible and how much it will cost compared to the other T…
  • You are correct; TerraTrike no longer carries the Sturmey Archer hubs, and there has been a price increase. The Nexus hubs have known to be more reliable and easier to use. They allow the customer to shift while pedaling with a light load on the ped…
  • Unfortunately, they are in production right now and we are expecting them here in late spring. They most likely will not be here by the first of April; You can place a pre-order to get one of the first ones. Let us know if you have more questions!
  • If you remove the seat mesh, the rack will not be in the way at all. I recommend doing that instead of removing the seat frame all together. The only time there are issues with the rack is if you are changing the angle of your seat frequently or tr…
  • Any vehicle, human or motor powered has its limitations. We can flip anything, it's just knowing where that line is and how to avoid it. Or, for me, how to come as close as possible to line without crossing it Each trike out there is different in i…

  • Did you call us directly? If I'm understanding your specific situation, this part should solve your problem:
  • It's made to increase your turning ability and it does, but it is not compatible with the Tandem. The steering extension is made for our single, linkage steering trikes(Cruiser, Tour, Path) and does a wonderful job of making a smaller turning radius…
  • BillP wrote: You should inquire at UtahTrikes.com. They have/had a steering modification for the Tour that decreased the turning radius greatly. Good Luck ... TerraTrike offers a steering extension as well, originally made for the older Cru…
  • Rob, Keep in mind that we told all of our dealers that shipping was not an option, and Utah Trikes chose to not carry TerraTrike anymore. The advantage of going to a local dealer, is having that standing relationship with a local bike shop. An…

  • I'm sorry to hear the disappointment. The main reason Utah Trikes is no longer a dealer is because we no longer allow any of our dealers to ship to customers. It keeps our dealers from selling into each others' territories, and in the long run keepi…

  • Marne to first stop in Conklin is about 7 miles Conklin to next stop in Ravanna is another 6 miles and then about 12.5 miles to the end of the trail. Depending on the riders we can easily break into groups for pace and you can turn back at any poi…
