  • Rover’s are blue. That is a Rambler I think.
  • Just rode 10. Used a lemon eucalyptus insect lotion and the deer flies left me alone for the most part. A few found me. 37% humidity so I did t sweat. They target me when I sweat. Gotta love those cold fronts and a nw wind behind em.

  • Last week here in Michigan it was so bad I brought a bath towel and another shirt to change into after the ride. Love the zip up cycling jerseys. Pop right off. Waiting to see what weather is going to be like for Riderfest in three weeks.

  • Yup. Going riding tonight. Will have to time it to see how long to tie it down. 10 minutes I’m guessing. Trailer would need several hundred more pounds to calm it down.

  • Didn’t time myself. I’ll get lazy and start cutting back on the number of straps. I’ll end up using one over each tire/wheel and a ratchet in the middle under the seat. I have blocks in the channels to stop the tires plus small bungees keeping the b…

  • OMG, he’s back!!! Here’s the latest set up. Tell me if it’s guud enough to have a back up roll in ‘Failure to Launch’. Overkill? A week ago that carrier wasn’t going to come out of the basement til the rapture. I was going to use trailer from now on…

  • He should go to the closest dealer And sit on one and see if it is the right method. One for sale is a 2014 Rover.
  • Where are you at? There was one in Austin TX listed here a few days ago for like $650.
  • Next item on list,...parking brakes. Agane.

  • After back n forth yesterday I have shifter functioning as it should. Rode 8 miles in 92 degrees last evening but later afternoon on the north south trail is in shadow. Deer flies love me though. I sweat just standing still. Where’s that artic wind.…

  • Our yaks are in basement but we will drag them out before fall. We have paddling suits for colder waters. The channel to the Big Lake and inside the breakwater arms looks like a zoo today. Once every few years a boat tries to jump the breakwater....…
  • Read after a search where one puts his tire tight to side wall of wood trailer then wraps strap 6-7 times around wood and tire/wheel. That will be our next method in a week or so. Wheel chocks also.

  • We use one strap per Trike. Need two?

  • We go from side to side, wrapping strap around seat. We have tried wrapping on frame below trikes. We have placed trikes diagonal across trailer where the tires are touching the wood side rails fore and aft. And we always arrive with the trikes havi…

  • We have been using our 10’ aluminum trailer for the trikes when we both ride. It’s rated for 3k lbs I think. It dribbles behind us at 45 mph. I have anchors in the floor that I hook the ratchet straps to, but the trikes always move because of the ac…

  • Is Chonk’s Challenge on a road??
  • Porterhouse. How about a system that deploys the spray as u peddle away?

  • My panniers collected too much and weighed 10 lbs very quickly. They are just hanging out inside porch now.

  • Try being in a smaller boat on a lake connected to Lake Michigan. This is why I am selling my boat.
  • I’ll post a picture of Rover balanced on my sawhorse. It has a carpeted top and aluminum legs. Collapseable. Brings the hub up to eye level when I am seated. Easier for me than getting up and down from floor in porch.

  • Saw I video that told to back out adjuster knob two turns. I used some tape to hold cable in place at adjuster. Otherwise it comes out when I am playing down at the hub and don’t know it. She wants to ride again today but the heat index may stop us.…

  • Image was zoomed in from a wide shot on my iPhone. Flash was on too.

  • Rode 6 miles since it was below 80 today. Back to 91 tomorrow. Peddled well except for third gear. Going to play with stop nut again in am. Loosen and move it 1/8” and see if it will shift to 8th. Thanks for the help.
    in Shifter cable Comment by Finn59 July 3
  • Rode it around the block and it will only go into 7th. Who has tweaked their shifter and can explain this, how far to move the nut??? Thanks.
    in Shifter cable Comment by Finn59 July 2
  • No it does not. Got it together and shifter goes thru all 8 but green lines don’t match in 4th. Just 3rd. How important is this?
