  • Excuse me for trying to help you figure out the load limit for a water bottle holder. You did show a link to the Blackburn holder.
  • You must be running low rear tire pressure.

  • May not believe it but Wind would seroiusly create a issue with ride and handling with those large panels.

  • I've seen pics of people using p vc,ramps
  • From the Blackburn website: Mounts to 2 standard bottle cage bosses Three sets of mounting holes to fit different size frames 6mm alloy tube construction 4kgs/8.8lbs carrying capacity 164g w/ straps $24.99
  • All else fails use a piece of PCV pipe however long you need and cut it in half lengthwise. That will give you two ramps.
  • Wonder how much Trump's tariff will effect imported bike/trike goods. Most bikes/trikes have a bunch of foreign parts,even those assembled in the USA.
  • do they provide paper name tags so we can figure out who we are ? Could use real and forum name.
  • never say never. that's why I ride with a cell phone and $50. Somehow I'll get back to the car.
  • I'm doing everything ! Then I'll pop a couple Advil and drive two hours home. Once there I'll be so stiff I'll need to crawl out of the car. Big fun.
  • I'm searching for a place to ride my age this fall, probably in October.

  • Those little trailers bounce a lot. I'd work on the rack solution.

  • Nice program you have, good luck going forward.
  • Look at the one listed in Austin, Texas for $650.

  • I found this in their How to Ride section on the T.T. website. We recommend that every trike be equipped with some sort of foot restraint to make sure that each of your rides is safe and trouble free. Clipless pedals, PowerGrip pedals or our heel…

    in Rear Tire size Comment by TCEd July 4
  • I'm thinking the goat heads will be a problem regardless what type tire you use. Also avoid the overly aggressive knobby tire, they are overkill in most scenarios.
  • yup, for a chain or cable to lock the trike
  • The accident I had a bike rider was riding against traffic on a dirt shoulder and was obstructed by objects along the road. I pulled out from a intersection and hit him, never saw him. Fortunately he walked out of the hospital later that day.
  • I posted on Recumbent Trike F.B. over the winter about my car and bike accident last summer. The bike rider was fully at fault per the accident report.
  • My wife was involved in a road rage incident two years ago. She was in a group ride that was just leaving a park in a residential area and a driver came up on them and verbally insulted them and drove very close almost merging into the riders. One o…
