  • I took a solar panel and mounted it above the rear rack. 20w 12vdc for 50$. I used Velcro to a aluminum frame with a battery hung under the frame. I charge two gopros, cell phone and four lights two front and two rear. I haven't had to charge a batt…
  • In Lincoln we have a group on trikegroups.com Lincoln Trikers. When the weather warms up we do a first and third Saturday IceCream ride. Varing distance and destination, depending on rider ablity and weather. We have done 3 to 24 miles.
  • Free Map My Ride has been working for me. Uploads direct into the National Bike Challenge over 4,000 miles this year with no truble.
  • I was able to get a Burley flatbed on craigs list. Works great with a Rambler.
  • I have mine just behind so I don't bump while riding. It's great for stopping and relaxing.
  • I have the 24" on my Rambler. First thing I did was get rid of the Land Cruiser tires and put Schwalbe Marathons. Same gears just the taller wheels. I had to drop down in the gears to get a range I could feel good with. This really made rolling resi…
  • And yes I don't have a car or pickup. With my Rambler and Burley trailer I have very seldom needed to haul anything I can't get with my setup. I bought my Rambler November 2014 right now has 2,467 miles.
  • I got mine at Menard's. 15' long with eyes on both ends, 5/8" plastic coated. I can lock my bike and Burley trailer with the cable though all five wheels and a pole or bike rack.
  • I have 1,800 miles on a set of Marathon Plus's with no flats. I just upgraded to 24" and put Marathon Plus on all three wheels. The Land Cruisers that came with had 4 flats in a month (200 miles). I may go back to them during the winter but probably…
  • Just had to make a comment about the 24" package and with Marathons. It works great! You do set up higher. If you make a sharp turn and will upset you, it can go over very easy. For normal trail riding it's great,for the effort to go 10mph I can eas…
  • If your bike sat out in the rain it would be good to lube the chain.
  • I used to have the argument with motorcyclist. I told them to wear a helmet for me, I don't care if there is or is not a law for them. When they ask what I mean. I used to be on a rescue squad, after they are down from a fall I will be the one sitt…
  • Have your route so others can join in for segments. I have three blinking rear red lights. Each side of the seat and one on top of the headrest.
  • Toe-in is critical. I took out a set of marathons in 300 miles. I thought the bike was set up right, was toe-out 1/2". I realigned with 1/32" toe-in, made a complete difference. I got over 1600 miles on the next set. I just replaced to the 24" packa…
  • I just put 24's on my Rambler. With the 24 speed I can find a gear that works with out a problem. I do find the tires have more rolling resistance but will hold speed better. Only problem is the tires sent with are no good. after 1800 miles on my ma…
  • I use all my gears (Rambler 24sp). I start each ride getting out of a basement garage18' lift in 80' to get to street level. Then I have 5 Rail Road overpasses within 2 miles, most have a 40' rise in 2 blocks. Worst one is 5 blocks long with 55' ris…
  • I made a stand to work on my Rambler and for alignment I remove the front tires. spin the rims to make sure of now wobbles, Then measure to make sure I have the rim centered to the frame the set my toe-in to about 1/32. Then mount the tires back on.…
  • I was down to every 10 miles and they worked loose. Completely tore the threads out of block on one side. Replaced the clamp (warranty) and was very careful on the tightening sequence. I tightened both seat bolts then snugged the top single clamp bo…
  • Is Terra Trike going to get the Schwalbe Marathon in 24"? I would think that will be a good combination.
  • I have limited use of my right hand after my strokes. I was worried about that also. You might try the one hand brake on a trike. Try some at a dealer. Make sure she can get in and out with out help. I have very limited feeling on my right side, tha…
  • I live in the downtown area.
