  • I have the 48 T on a Rover and it is fine but I set the controller for 10 settings and reduced the 1-5 settings to space the speed ranges in there closer together. Custom programming the settings is not difficult but understanding what to change is …
  • Made it back to the Beach from Canada and then from Orlando. Lots of branches and trees on ground east of Tallahassee. S Ontario, Michigan and Indiana were brutal -15 F Jan 2 in Indianapolis. Missed biking because of travel and cold/flu .... hopeful…
  • But it depends on wheel and tire size. I have 24 " rear and 20 front, both with 2.12 tire size. I'll throw a tape on it tomorrow (if I remember) Found a tape ... to top of metal side support at front, from the floor is approx 19.25 inches
  • An expansion on previous posting That was a Rambler and a RamblerAT. Today stopped at their main store in LadyLake, The Villages. They have an extensive stock of both TerraTrike and Catrike models there and were very friendly accommodating folks …
  • What about a TerraCycle Universal battery mount . Expensive but solid rep for quality
  • Stopped in The Villages where they had a Rambler and Rambler on diplay. Looks like the difference between sa half ton and a Mack truck. Sits high. At tires. HD rims, granny gear frt rings.. 41T rear 10sp cassette. Versa bars. Look and feel complete…
  • Removing Rover wheels. First one to go was on left and pulling it off the spindle pulled the inside bearing out of the hub. Enough corrosion on axle to keep it from sliding off. Used some emory cloth to clean it up and put two new cartridge bearing…
  • Had to head north today to visit the gene pool for a few days. Made it to Nashville and still looking for the cold 35F Left the trike in the Condo. It locked it's brakes and refused to move an inch from the Beach. Detroit tomorrow and then slip int…
  • Chickened out this winter. Rolling along through the fog in PCB, Fl. Pretty much just over 30 mi everyday. Probably be a little winter left for me in N. Ontario when I get home mid March, plus going back to Canada over Xmas to make sure the gene poo…
  • Put one on the rear wheel or fix up a boat anchor! Or just hit the snowbank
  • Layers. Hoodie under helmet. Wind jacket and pants on top of all. Double gloves. Hands cold at first. Warmed up and was fine. Head winds no prob w eassist. Tail wind could really fly. Out all morning
  • Snow didn't make it down to PCB, Fl, last night, but somebody forgot to close the door in Rainy River, ON so it was windy and cold here, but enough layers and two stops at McDs for sustenance and I made my 50+ kms. Trails were pretty empty except f…
  • That a pretty small chain ring on the inside may be okay for moderate climbs. It highlights the problem in steep climbs of using a rear e assist vs a mid drive like a BBSXX where you can maintain efficiency at lower ground speed by keeping the emoto…
  • As long as it's solved. Think the grease is positive on a Rover. On an adjustable round boom might be a problem
  • More likely the squeak was coming from one of the seat mounting bolts IMHO
  • Disagree. My Rover was getting severe corrosion inside . Grease solved the problem and properly tightened it does not slip.... either before or after greasing. Creaking was more likely from loose set screws, not lack or too much grease. No movement …
  • Probably just tighten on rear slot or Probably will move way less than one inch if you use the boom extension. Chain is long and a very small amount of wear will cause slop. Got over 5000 mi out my first and has lots of abuse. Never broke. If worrie…
  • The handlebar extensions (cheap, cheap) I used are clamped onto the inside edge of my handle bars, upsidedown, so they stick up in the air, sort of. And then the mirrors are mounted in the ends. Puts the mirrors at eye level so you are not glancing …
  • No decision is a bad decision. There are many many things to learn about triking and which trikes. It matters not which model you choose, chances are there will be something you won't quite like. I started with a Rover two years ago and have had a b…
  • Mount them on the inside of the handle bars or use bar end extensions from a DF bike to mount them up....actually works best
  • Make sure you place the flat washers appropriately. Two washers in each joint you want to adjust frequently.Do not over-tighten. excellent product
  • A 28-38-48 Front Chain ring will do that (cheap). You could spend a few more bucks and put a shifter on it but not necessary just to try. You simply grasp the chain tube and shift the chain onto the bigger/smaller chain ring. A $35/15 min upgrade …
  • 20 vs 30 speed has nothing to.do a top speed of bike. Look at the gear inches. A 20 sp could have exact top and low speed as 30. A 24 in rear wheel w 48t front will give you a top speed over 20 mph if you can pedal skustained that hard. Many 2 wheel…
  • So now that EVO Rambler is working properly, how is it performing in hilly country? I mean good steep longer grades. Appreciate a candid review.
  • Perhaps you can look at a smaller front chain ring to keep your cadence up or multi speed front gear box, or smaller rear wheel. Good luck
  • I have BBSO2B and have reprogrammed the settings to my taste. I have derated the settings as not interested in speed. Has lots of umph...more than I generally need. Mostly running flat country, but when i am in the hills I draw up to 500 watts where…
  • Battery connector intermittent? Clips in battery adjust, beND to grip prongs on cord to motor? Cover w vaseline. Drove me crazy until diagnosed. Also used straps w velcro to GUARANTEE battery cannot wiggle in quick release base Heavy enough wire f…
  • Had same issue intermittent on Rover. Generally corrected by giving a flush in the brake pad area with a nozzle on the garden hose. Just let it dry out after.
  • As long as there are no snowbanks go for it! Be there in a couple of weeks. rain and snow now three days running YUCK!
  • Check your cadence. Faster cadence is easier on the legs/joints and may help to build up endurance and speed or perhaps you would find e-assist up your alley. GT may be faster potential for stronger legs but think getting more speed could be acheive…
