  • My combination is the Alfine 11 and Schlump HSD.  Great range and I like IGH across the board :-)
  • how much of a difference or improvement do you see with the BB7's verses the original Alhonga's
  • When I got my Traveler, direct from TT, I also saw the front tires wear fast.  It was out of alignment.  After calling them, TT sent me two new tires and after doing some research I've been able to take care of the alignment myself.  I've seen using…
  • I am curious what are the changes from the previous years model?
  • My Traveler has the Alfine-11 IGH and Schlumph HSD.  Great range and I really like the IGH's
  • I have a traveler with the alfine 11 and Schlumph HSD up front and love the combination and range (though I know $$$ can be a factor).   I have off an on thought about the 24" wheel option.   But I wonder how that will impact the fold size.. I fold …
  • I don't think so (but honestly I have not tried to check)   - I just use it to track the time/distance and map info after the fact.
  • Runtastic does run on the apple watch.   But for me at least it has had problems from time to time (when running from the watch)  -- so I've stayed with starting the app from the phone.
  • Just to close out my question/problem, yes adjusting the fixed side pad out more was the key.   The brakes are working fine now.  Learn new things all the time.  Next brake learning experience will be changing the pads.. But now I have time before t…
  • A short update...Based on the suggestion from Jamesr (thanks!) I looked closer at the fixed pad side of the brake.  It was indeed worn down and (I am guessing on this) that the "click" sound and feel may have been something on the other side catchin…
  • Thanks, you are right I I wasn't touching the fixed pad...I haven't delved into that before. I'll take a look. Thanks again
  • How have the Alhonga's  been working for folks?  They are on my TT Traveler that I have had since Feburary.   The pads have worn but I can see there is still more pad left.  I've had to adjust the cable a lot to be able to brake as the pads wore dow…
  • as far as flags go.  http://soundwinds.us/ seems to have a good selection
  • My DF has the alfine-8, based on that experience I wanted a IGH when looking at trikes  I tried the NuVinci and I guess I just it was just not for me... So I decided to stay with alfine.   Since with the 8 on my DF I would often spin out, I decided …
  • Runtastic app on my iphone
  • I had an alfine 8 igh on my REI bike..road it for years, never a problem and I really liked it..The only problem with it was the range... I spun out to easily.  So when I got the traveler I got it with the alfine-11 and schlumph HSD..  it is great. …
  • For me, I've been on the Traveler almost daily since Feb/March on short errands, 7.6 mile work to home trips and longer 25-30+ mile rides.  I'm still using the stock peddles.   They have been fine for me for now.  I still consider and research other…
  • I'll add a comment or two on Sailsam's comments.   I mentioned in another note the rear tension-er problems (with a IGH in the back).  TT was quick to replace it (actually first they sent me replacement of the same kind, that didn't go so well, and …
  • I know there is varied thoughts on Slime...  I'll add my thoughts and experience.   I had holes in three tubes within a month or so.  All the front (Big Apple) tires.  This was getting frustrating for me so when at REI I saw tubes with Slime already…
  • Thanks for that.  I see that the fenders you mentioned are for 26" wheels and in another note you mentioned you upgraded to the 24" wheels.  I'm still at the 20"...Thinking the size difference may make it not fit so well... thoughts?
  • I had a few chain tensioner issues and it had to be replaced.  I have a Alfne-11 IHG in back so the tensioner is there instead of a derailer (got the Traveler direct from TT).  TT was very helpful and quick to get the replacement sent out.  The tire…
  • It is not a rack. Two bags connected by a couple inch wide webbing (two strips).  the webbing goes across the seat with the two bags hanging over each side of the seat.  The bags have "clasps" to attach to some upper portion of the seat.  The bags a…

  • Had the traveler for a bit now..  It's a blast to cruise around on...Folding/unfolding does not take very long and it fits in the back of our ex35 with the seats up.   I added Smokey Mtn saddle bags for storage it works well.   So yep I am happy wit…

  • I fold/unfold my traveler almost on a daily basis.  For me the folding option was a requirement so that it will fit in the back of an infiniti ex35 with the back seats up.  I would agree with vonklarp that the seat off/on is the most difficult.  But…
  • Elrique64 has said it well.  Just adding my two cents.. Mine has the Sclumph HSD and the Alfine 11 in back and am very happy with it.  I went this path after riding my DF with the Alfine 8 for a long time.  I really liked the IGH setup, but often ma…
  • My traveler arrived yesterday!  woo-hoo!
  • Looks like the traveler has arrived at TT. Waiting for my order to be built and delivered :-)
  • Looks like the Traveler is available for Pre-ordernow with Jan 2015 for delivery (as mentioned earlier).  
  • I have the Shimano 8 speed on my REI cruiser bike.  From that, I like the internal hubs enough that I plan on having an internal hub set up installed when the travelers are available
