  • Forecasts are for improving conditions with a strong warming trend by Tuesday. However haven't said which Tues, in which week, in which month.
  • Use a belt w a buckle and velcro around rim and channel 1.5 x18 to 24 in. Works perfect
  • Check out message board bent rider online, specialty discus, power assist, bionix. Great link there to recent Spinning Magnets article
  • Did you manage to get any picts of this procedure on install of liners. My text comprehension is weaker than my visual comp. Thanks in advance. Also back into the cold of Rainy River, missing those Florida zephyrs
  • Had a Bell 300 wireless that worked fine until I put a Bafang 750C display on handlebar and then EMI stopped the Bell from working. Moved it to bottom of steering arm and again worked ok but took it off as I no longer use. 750C works fine but if you…
  • Instead of trying to hold the caliper in line, either follow the procedure of tightening down the pad adjustments to force correct alignment and then tighten mounting screws or place a business card between pad and rotor , both sides, apply and lock…
  • Double wall rims are standard on some models. Your decision. Just open your wallet.My TT Rover has single wall on front 20000 km without a single prob. What trouble are you having?
  • JamesR has it right. Also could be the actuator on the noisy brake is a little bit sticky. Had one Alhonga that eventually packed up. Usually my ching ching was a bit of grit with a rotor a little off. Should be able to see if the rotor is off by pu…
  • If you are happy and familiar with BBsHD why change? 30-35 mph might be a little too much for an unsuspended high trike like a Rambler. Better figure on some Big Bens and look carefully at you chainring/cadence combos, particularly w a 20" rear whee…
  • 85F and bright sunshine in PCB this aft. Lovely ride this am. Azaleas are popping out all over. Return to the frozen north is looming.... shudder
  • Florida_bound wrote: » Jrobiso2, the Alpaca carrier can handle DFs and trikes. I know it's expensive but well worth it. It's very sturdy but it does rattle in the receiver. I'm still trying to figure out how to stop that. Many hitches have a…
  • NO. 10,000 km w,o prob
  • You don't take or split the caliper apart to remove pads. There is a tiny hex head pin that goes through the top of both pads.... other side of your picture...and then the pads just drop out. Your pads in pictures don't look worn out . Clean them up…
  • Need the gear sensor for safety ot the IGH otherwise danger of crunchy
  • Probably have Alhongas. Should say on actuation arm. Two align and hold caliper to mount. Two hold out to frame. One nut for actuator arm
  • Cable packs generally are cheap and come with the cable with two ends swaged on already. You cut off the end that you don't need.(Different shifters/controls use different ends) and insert the cable into the old or new cable housing. Also will need …
  • Rotor is supposed to bend as only one pad moves pushing the rotor against the fixed pad.
  • Chonk Would suggest in a new forum, the search function have ability to search only the title of the post for a word or a phrase rather than the whole post. Too much repetition if it searches whole post

  • Took the photo. See them most days. 20 mph wo eassist today but tailwind. L5 assist 200 watt against it. Only other trikes spotted this year two Sun deltas. Doing 50 km daily

  • James R has it down pat. Easy if you understand what you are trying to do and how the disk brakes work
  • My Avid BB7 kit came w a torx wrench for removing disk bolts and ease of adjusting pads. one in each wheel set
  • My first one failed around 10000 km l outside. Right outside is a little 'rough' and I will replace in spring. It is 17,000+ km. They are inexpensive and I have several spares. The trick may be extracting the old bearing from the hub. might need a b…
  • Finn Did greasing the bearings smooth out the rotation completely? Curious.
  • Know finding specifics on Alhonga brakes can be a pain, but the procedure on adjusting mechanical disk brakes is the same whether bike or trike and there are a lot of YouTubes out there that can help. RJ The Bike Guy has a great set of Videos on a l…
  • Whoa!! Which model trike. On a Rover the wheel nuts are both right hand thread!!
  • Easy enough to change, but some newer ones apparently require reamer after installing in cruciform. I have 17,000+ km on mine and still can not detect significant wear with calipers. BUT very important to grease them regularly -twice yearly- and adj…
  • Agree with TrikeBirder's points. The N380 is a fine piece of equipment but expensive particularly if you opt to go eassist later as it would restrict you to a mid drive or relacing a wheel with a hub motor and something other than a Nuvinci in the r…
  • Don't think so. Probably want to run in the middle of your cassette from a wear standpoint. 5th is 17th for me and like to start in 4th 20T, or 3rd 23T for hilly , both usually with a bump on throttle. Just replaced chain,derailleur, and cassette b…
