  • Great videos!! Nice to be able to ride to work like that, especially the bike trails. I almost got a TerraTrike Traveler because it was literally the only trike that would fit into the trunk of a VW Passat!! I decided to buy a hitch trike rack …
  • Yes, I do enjoy a little grease and a few skinned knuckles!! My husband and I lived on a large sailing catamaran for two years and I was the "grease" monkey. One of my favorite memories was wedging myself into one of the little engine compartments…
  • I found an article by Industrialbikes.com that talks about new changes for TerraTrike for 2016. There will be a new "chain gobbler" design except on the Rover and the Tour II. "Speaking of component specifcations... TerraTrike has changed their na…
  • Thanks. I just "subscribed" to the TerraTrike YouTube channel. Wow!! This is so great. By the time I receive my Traveler, I believe that I will be able to do a lot on my own! It is an amazing wealth of information. I have saved all of the app…
  • It is my understanding that no assembly is required when you order from the Factory. They ask you for your Xseam and apparently it comes "ready to ride" out of the box. I was able to test ride a Traveler at the lbs and I also went and test rode …
  • I do have an authorized dealer in my area, but they had told me that I would have to pay a $200 restocking fee if I decided that I did not want it. I just did not want to take this risk. This purchase is making me nervous. I have had a lot of gre…
  • I bought a 10 Liter "Sling" bag from Eddie Bauer (packable and very light weight). It is very comfortable to wear this sling bag across your chest. I do not have my Traveler yet. I plan to see how this sling bag works. It seems to be the right s…
  • No idea of a release date. I have just heard that it will be "by the end of May." Your comment about extra system up front is definitely one of the first upgrades that I will consider. When I test rode the Catrike behind the Home Depot, it was gr…
  • Elrique64, I did test drive one trike at Sequim Store which was a Rambler. I loved it. It was a 24 external gear. Paul, one of salesmen, said that the feel was nearly identical to the Traveler. I decided that getting the foldable one made the mo…
  • Pam, from your post I wasn't sure if you rode both the Traveler and the Gekko on that day you bought your Gekko?? I was wondering what was the main reason that you bought the Gekko over the Traveler. I will get to lay my hands on both of these t…
  • Pam, I looked at the information available online. Looks nice. Can you tell me why you went with the Gecko over the Traveler?? You can also give me a private email: mariemuma@gmail.com - that would be preferred so I can get your response quicker…
  • Pam, Does the one that you are buying fit into the trunk of something like a VW Passat?? Let me know. It will be a couple of months probably until I "pull the trigger."
  • I live in Port Townsend, Washinton and have ordered a 2016 model TerraTrike Traveler NuVinci N380. It would be nice to see you on the map with your email address.
  • Another setup that I have seen is called "Bike Tow Leash." They sell it on Amazon, so it is very easy to return if you do not like it. It is pricey, but looks to be easy to do lots of adjustments as to where you attach it and where you "point" it.…
  • Hello Pam, I was wondering if you bought your Traveler. I have just ordered a 2016 Traveler with NuVinci N380 hub. I am hoping beyond hope to have them install a Harmony advanced controller (converts it to a truly automatic transmission where…
  • Things seems to be coming together and I am very thankful for all the suggestions. Looks like my local bike shop will be able to install a Patterson Crankset onto my soon-to-be ordered TerraTrike Traveler with NuVinci N380 (will just use the N380 b…
  • You said you have 20" Big Apple tires. Did you mean that you have these on your trike or on your trailer?? I like your idea of the inflated inner tube and am already thinking along those lines. I may put an inflated 3/4 size Thermarest mattress o…
  • Bike trail is very smooth/groomed, definitely not bumpy at all. I can always add a high density foam pad to the mix. Time will tell............
  • Just checked EBay regarding the Burley. It is the same price as Amazon, $229 plus free shipping.
  • Shoot, I should have checked EBay first, but love Amazon's return policies. I do love the trailer, although have not actually hooked it up to the Trike. I have put my dog in it and "walked" him around and he seems very happy. It will be interesti…
  • To James, Thanks for the compliment directed to Jack. He is a real show-stopper. This will be such great training for him because he likes to jump into everyone's face and now he will be restrained from jumping out of the dog trailer kennel. I wo…
  • I am not sure about Bionix motor, but was told that the other motor from that E-Kit would not increase the wheel's footprint. Which means it would be able to fold. A permanent rear rack which goes along with some E-Kits cannot be put on and still …
  • The battery most likely can be put onto the cargo dog trailer (there is room) with an extension cable (they cannot extend beyond 3 feet or will heat up). That was what someone told me about a different electric motor called E-Kit or something like …
  • In thinking about that Harmony controller with a NuVinci N380, I am very impressed with having an "automatic transmission." I still am not sure if this automatic transmission is only applicable if I purchase an Electric Bike Conversion kit for the …
  • I appreciate the tech talk, but that is not to say that I understand all that is being discussed. I ordered a second bike trailer hitch. I will be bringing both hitches and my whole dog trailer set up including Jack, the dog. I will ask that he p…
  • I did purchase cargo Burley (less than 15 lbs). Jack weighs 24 lbs and the plastic kennel weighs 5 lbs. That means I will be towing a total of 44 lbs. Having this set-up gives me much more flexibility. I could even eliminate the 5 lb kennel and …
  • I just put my Burley cargo trailer together and placed a hard shell (5 lbs) kennel on the trailer bed. When I add the 24 lbs for Jack, I am looking at towing 44 lbs!! I have asked my Trike dealer if he would be so kind as to hook up this trailer f…
  • Still waiting on information from the Dealer/Factory about the quote. The NuVinci option for the 2016 Traveler will be the N380. I have been looking for an opportunity to test drive a trike that has the NuVinci 380 (or even the 360) and seem to be…
  • Thank you so much. I am somewhat overwhelmed, but then again, I do have way too much free time. So here I go into the world of FallBrook and NuVinci!! I will study, study, study..............Marie
  • Michael, your discussion about an "automatic transmission" is so very intriguing. Did I understand the discussion to say that it is possible to add the Electric motor to this NuVinci 380??? Right now, the electric motor is not beckoning me. All t…
