  • If you want to mount a headlight to the handlebars this looks like a good option:

  • "Stepless" shifting like the Nuvinci line uses is just a design with no fixed points in the "gear" range. As FINN58 said they use balls instead of gears. Here's a video explaining it from Fallbrook.
  • I wound up borrowing a Catrike Expedition I believe it was that one of the local shops people owned while my Rover was waiting weeks for parts. I found it very uncomfortable and left home as little as possible because of it. I have to agree with Ter…
  • I've been wonder that myself for years.
  • I agree but insurance companies usually look for any reason to give you as little as possible.

  • I use an insurance company that you decide a value and just pay for that, no concern on depreciation. I just know I can't afford to replace it if something happens so I insured it.
  • You would put those on the back or bottom of the seat frame not the sides like your thinking of.
  • I'm a firm supporter of AA and AAA lights since you can just swap the rechargeable batteries when needed.
  • I still need to report a couple post sets on the paths in my city that are too close myself. I keep forgetting , I should do that the next time I'm at them.
  • Good enough? They do realize that when peoples needs are disregarded long enough it can lead to "vandalism" in the form of solving the problem themselves right?
  • I hate to be the bearer of bad news but racks for smaller wheels are very "rare". The only real ones I've found are made by or for folding bicycle companies and RackTime's Foldit Fix
  • I recently bought the Tern Cargo Rack myself, it sits just a bit more then 2cm above my fender at it's lowest setting on my 20" wheel compared to around 14cm on my previous 26" sized rack. It is rather nice but it won't work with all panniers, I had…
  • I can't comment on the rover 8s but on my n360 when I spin out I get to about 20mph on flat ground without a tailwind. I weight around 230# and should upgrade my gearing so I can go faster. The n360s came configured for 20-72 gear inches according t…
  • I have never ridden one. I went right to the trikes partly for safety reasons. I'm not saying two wheelers are inherently unsafe but I have had spills on icy roads. Fortunately I didn't have a car close behind me then.
  • It could be kind of "fixed" but your better off just replacing it as soon as possible
  • Yes, you have to disconnect the cables. Also I advice against getting a valve core tool like that. Get a slim dedicated tool instead, the one pictured is a real pain to use on a 26" wheel due to hitting spokes much less our 20" ones. These types …

  • I carry a spare too but it's in case of a really bad situation like freezing temperatures or a rainy day flat. I'm the type that thinks if your going to remove and replace the tube why not go ahead and fix it now?
  • I take off the fender, it's basically just as easy as removing the struts on the front wheels. Unscrewing the bottom outside screws and then the top inside ones to lift it off is what I do. I really need to start working on learning to patch by pul…
  • I personal bought the Comfort Pedal Conversion Kit and a set of Zefal toe clips. Works well and allows you to wear "normal shoes". Feet come off easily in an emergency too. Learned that when I got hit by a car. One of the workers at the local deal…
  • I said they are designed for wireless ones because of the spacing not really the wires. At it's closest mine could be about 3/4 to 1 inch from the spokes which can be a problem for wired models. That's why I said I think. Even then you can pad it to…
  • Like rirover said. it's a cycle computer sensor mount. They are designed for wireless models only I think.
  • The chain did not cause this damage it seems. It's seems to be damaged from the outside to inside.
  • I recently added a bit of old tube around the three bits the QR goes through. It's a bit hard to get the seat back on right but it seems to work. Besides most of us have free access to old tubes.
