  • Specs for all models new and old on TTWebsite
  • Yes, dealer in Suttons Bay, I rented from them once. Appx. 30 round trip, one good hill. couple grades.
  • Traverse City has a state park near downtown and the TART cross town trail runs next to the park.
  • That's why I suggested bending it as straight as he can and doing a alignment. Looking at the photo the bend isn't significant. T.T. may say to replace the part if asked from a liability position. Mechanical Engineer University of Michigan G…
  • I've taken the twist out of wood by wrapping it in a wet towel and twisting the wood in the opposite direction. It's a crap shoot but can work. Keep the wood wet for a day or two then check your results.

  • Todays flight from TVC cancelled, rescheduled for Wed. In the past ten years we've had appx. 50% of our flights cancelled due to weather, seems like one every year.

  • I would figure out a way to fasten the tires directly to the channel to prevent them from hopping out.
  • Are you sure your straps are holding ? Possibly loosening under road vibration ? You had straps loosen before if I remember correctly with a trike on the lid.
  • Bend it as straight as you can and redo the front wheel alignment.
  • Check Amazon online, there are a bunch of trailers available.
  • Problem is the load can be outboard of the wheel on a single wheel trailer leading to a side load placed on the trike also. Two wheel trailer will be easier to maneuver when disconnected also.

  • null No shifting issues
  • Here's what the twin cam chain rings look like. I'm staying with a conventional round middle ring and using the twin cam for granny and high speed.

  • Is the battery sealed ? If not check the fluid level, top off with distilled water or boil your own.
  • I doubt many bike shops stock a lot tools for sale as that cuts into the service department business. Car dealers and boat dealers I've known don't sell tools.

  • Since she is working borrow here mirror and post.

  • Thinking about lighter materials may help.
  • You guys come up with more ways to add weight to these trikes.
