  • Flickr has a great sharing link for BBC code. Only have to neuter the code some to post. Clip off around the IMG tags, like: Added spaced so the link will post. Normally there are no spaces. [ img ] https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4330/35…
  • Minoura Camera Mount took a month to arrive from Japan. Got that about a month ago and only recently had mounted it on the Versa Bar. Am quite surprised how well it does. Above the Versa Bar it catches part of the mirror and has an interesting ef…
  • Tried adjusting them again. Still a tad too tight, and the right cable housing is not a tight fit - the cable pops in and out a quarter of an inch when braking or releasing. That means the cable housing is too short. Probably from the thigh resting …
  • Have your tried SPD-SL? Thought about going that route, or a wider pedal with an SPD inside. Wished Specialized would of kept up with the Biopace chainrings. Lack of resources has kept me from trying them.
  • Walmart has twin packs that are cheaper than buying two separate packs. So I bought two twin packs so have a spare to carry as well. Never know. The valve stems seem to be a lot sturdier as well. Not noticed any traveling to one side either like …
  • Bought Slime tubes and using Slime branded blue caps, and not nearly losing as much air as with the tubes that came with the trike. These tubes might lose 5 pounds in a month. I still check the tubes before a ride but lately, even after a week+ the…
  • Catch that kite on a semi and you'd probably solve your latency issues... LOL
  • Know a guy that bought chain from Utah Trikes for a bit more expecting the chains to of been connected. Since then he's ordered from Amazon. Guess no one seems chain in bulk anymore.
  • Guessing these don't have some sort of clutch? Would say either wait till Monday and call TT, or better yet take to the dealer. Was there anything in the instruction manuals that you might of missed. Is it the stock unprogrammable model, or per…
  • Corrected two words the the reply got trash-canned. I HATE that bug! Have since learned to ctrl+c and then ctrl+p after a page refresh to curb that annoying bug.
  • Essentially you want the weight in between the front and rear wheels, however you also want your knees over the top of the front axle. When I got my Rover last year the incompetent dealer had the boom all the way to the front, and the seat was al…
  • Southbound wrote: » Winds over about 8 knots here signal a weather event but I turned around Wednesday morning into a front coming in. I looked down to see if rear tire had gone flat in the turn! LOL. Been there, wondered the same.
  • Sizing: http://www.terratrike.com/sizing.php Rover Assembly: http://www.terratrike.com/media/docs/RoverManual.pdf New Rover Manual: https://terratrike.com/media/docs/NewRoverManual.pdf Oddly none of these are under the Manuals link above, but t…
  • Cross & head winds almost always here in this part of Idaho. Last ride was in between a head-on & cross wind coming from the east ... it's almost always from the west or north. Was easier on the way home although 20 degrees colder, and very …
  • Finally had time yesterday. Was a nice day, and rode home in the dark & cold. Brr. have to find some ear warmers. Think I overdid the tightening on the left side. Since I don't have a bench to work n had to flip the trike on its side. Will ha…
  • I have plenty of lights.
  • Ahh, I wondered that too. Only thing I could think of was for carrying a fleece or wool blanket/throw.
  • I've been at 400# and had no problem in the seat. The end bars by the legs have an issue where the slot pocket is, as it folds over the seat tubing which forms a large lump. That lump hurts after having a few miles on, and can linger on a few days -…
  • The reflective tape seller suggested a lot more, but I only have hints here and there. Most pedals have yellow reflectors on them if you look. Clipless pedals however do not, but mine do to a point. Was thinking of adding some on the bare section…
  • Added some School Bus Yellow reflective tape to the back side of the crank arms, and a couple small sections on the other ends, to the Rover post, and the mirrors. The photos were taken as I was applying the Reflexite Orafol R99 FRA 224 V92 V99 R…
  • Are all barrel adjusters this bad towards the end threads? Seems albeit loose, probably from my first few months of the thigh bumping into the brake cable. Will have to squeeze that poor excuse of a lock nut in with pliers. Is why I wished there…
  • Not worried about keeping the skin warm, more of the breathing in & out. See a lot of masks that have an inlet blocker of some sort, yet no ports for exhaling on the sides. So poor design on their parts. Maybe I should try and contact my old …
  • Lost a lot of photos from a recent hard drive failure, so this is the best I had on the subject. Used two 2" squared U bolts with flat plates across top & bottom. Leather strips in between the plates and the boom for protection. Seat hasn't move…
  • Yeah, it's definitely sexy in frame design. 300 load limitation.
  • ** chirp, chirp **
  • So... Mr @chonk sir... can the Rambler EVO Seat fit onto a 2017 Rover? Of course would like to get the seat mesh too. Am one of those that lost their seat wedge due to the front buckled that buckled (came undone). Using a wide zip tie to keep t…
  • Was near freezing this morning. No riding to church for me, today.
  • Stay warm! /brr 43° F and dropping this morning. Had to turn the heater on as it is 13° colder than projected.
  • Ever wish that TT would have an accessories sale?
