  • Thank you wish that is the one
  • If you have the older tie rod with the spring loaded ends T.T. will replace it for you. I was up at Riderfest and was told by one of the T.T. employees to have the shop where I got it from call them. They sent the new tie rod to the shop.
  • Same here I always wear a helmet when I am riding.

  • There are several types of rechargeable lights. All the lights that I have are USB rechargeable. Also look at Amazon you can find deals on the lights
  • A lot of states have laws against under-carriage lighting on a moving vehicle. It can be consider a distraction to other drivers. I know a few people have been pulled over and ticketed for this on their cars. The one got his car towed because it …

  • Well with the Rover being blue a Surf drive does match it.
  • With the Efeno you cannot switch gears under load you will need to pause when you switch gears. TT had a Sportser with one at Riderfest. Talking to the one guy from TT outside of the pause when you shift, which is not really a big deal, it is a goo…

  • Just like a Patterson, more expensive, but does have larger gear inch depending on which model you get. Better gear inch range helps with speed, but the biggest factor is the person peddling the trike. Switching gear on it is hitting a button in t…

  • Was getting between 5 to 7. It just seems long because of the winding of the road. Come around a corner and more hill. There is a section in the middle where there is a down and up so you pick up a little speed to carry up the next climb.

  • Here is the video of the Hill Climb. On the downhill part of the run I was hitting 28 mph while riding the breaks.

  • That one I had it mounted to the derailleur post. I now have it mounted on my headrest. I got the parts from RAM Mount for the mounting of it. I can lift the back end of my trike off the ground with the way I have it mounted now.

  • I have a video of the hill climb, I will have to dig it up and post it.

  • Here is the video from last years Riderfest 13 mile ride that I did. This should give you an idea of the ride.

  • Someone call Norfolk and Southern, this topic has derailed.

  • Trick I use is put some lock tight blue on the threads before tightening down the lock bolts. This gives a little extra hold on them plus with using the blue you can break the seal that it makes.
  • I signed up but just need to confirm the date so when I book a room.
  • So is the date the 28th correct. I know on the website and the description in Eventbright say the 28th, but the time and date on Eventbright just below the tickets button says July 21st. Just wanting to make sure on the date, before I book my room …
  • Crank Brothers Double Shots. One side is platform and the other side is clipped. The cleats us the SPD two hole mount. So on the clipped side you are still getting the support of the platform. This is what I put on my Traveler.
  • Yeah it was not that far from where we were at. On the downhill part we came past the pavilion that was near where we were at.

  • No there was around 8 of us that made the the climb. It was about a mile and half climb. We all got a gift bag full of stuff.

  • I went up there last year,the rides were relatively flat. Now if you want to be crazy you can attempt the hill climb challenge. I did that also and the first thing i did was get into the hot tub at the hotel after getting back.

  • Speaking of Riderfest just wondering when it will be so I plan my trip up there.
  • I see a Sweetwater sticker on that case. That company is where I live. That place is unreal. The owner of that company started out of the back of a VW van which is on display in the lobby of the main building. Their recording studios there are c…
  • Got me some Crank Brothers Double Shot 3 pedals, now just need to get some new shoes for this season.
  • That is interesting, If you were doing long distance tour it might be handy, but trying to figure a place to mount it on a bike or trike without it being in the way and clear path in front of it would be the challenge. I think it would be a little t…
  • Maybe we can get a response from TT if the Tour II drropout would work on a Traveler. I know when I stopped over there the day before Riderfest, I asked about if a Traveler would take a 26" on the back. They told me it would but you get into the i…
  • I get some pictures this weekend of my headrest mount and my mount I have on my post out in front. The one out front is out far enough and high enough so my feet do not show. and the headrest mount you do not see the top of my Helmet. Both are ve…
