  • My big lunker tried to take off with the trike while i was standing alongside. He went about 15 feet and turned and the trike sorta jackknifed which got him all flustered. I keep him away from the trike for a week before reintroducing him to it. He'…

  • I'd wear a helmet on that trail also. We rode in Moab on MTB's a few years ago and that country can hurt you. Additionally : I'm still not sold on high C.G. trikes on dirt trail like these. On a MTB your legs and knees are part of the suspension, on…

  • I try to make people aware of leg suck because it isn't addressed adequately by the manufacturers and community. Helmet use gets significant discussion on the web. In both situations I leave it for the rider to decide. I do wear a helmet when I'm on…

  • Great idea for trikes with chain tubes, won't work with front idlers and exposed chains.
  • Agree with JamesR, my ride has whatever white grease ( natural or synthetic ) that was applied during assembly four years ago and I can steer using my thumb and forefinger. It's most important that the assembly is done correctly.

  • There are a number of brands that make rider type clothing that contain a reflective fiber woven into the fabric. I've seen black outerwear at night being highly reflective with the reflective weave. Contrary to beliefs you don't need to ride aroun…

  • I have a 1977 Toyota Land Cruiser, the best theft protection is a manual transmission and no power steering.
  • If anyone wants to consider a good upgrade think about trigger shifters, simple finger tip actuation. Hot, cold, wet hands or gloves make no difference.

  • A distracted bike/trike rider or runner/walker or vehicle driver are a threat to everyone. If you're self absorbed in whatever you're listening to or watching you're distracted.
