    @IRONMAN1518, I'm not sure this is how to private message someone, but if you can either call me or text me your contact info I am happy to call you back. We don't always have WiFi, so I end up looking at email about once a week. I left my cell phone number in my post (cryptically, but in a way so as to not get it caught up and captured by snooping "bots" , so you can get that there. If you only have email, you can try me at birder73 at gmail dot com.

    Hello. The basic "carrier" is a Curt aluminum cargo carrier, model# 18100; got it @ Home Depot for $97.00. https://www.homedepot.com/p/CURT-500-lbs-Capacity-Bolt-Together-Aluminum-Cargo-Carrier-with-2-in-Folding-Shank-18100/205631477.
    I ordered the aluminum angle from http://www.onlinemetals.com/ I think I bought three seven foot lengths. {Sorry I can't remember}. I shall measure all the pieces I cut and send the dimensions to you. Can also send pics in detail if you wish. It's real simple to build seriously, as long as you can use a drill to drill the bolt holes. Mine is not "centered with the rack, so the trike is further behind the back of my car {Subaru Crosstrek}, so I can open the hatch back while the trike is in the rack. The rear of the trike doesn't stick out, the front does maybe about 8 inches out fro the side of the car. But it is a small narrow car. If you mounted it on a truck or bigger car I don't think it would stick outside the sides of the vehicle.njhg9y7ccok6.jpg

    Here a couple other videos I hope can explain it better for you. let me know about anything I can help you with. The first video shows very well how the components work and are connected.


    This one shows how to remove the BB (bottom bracket bearings), This is the same type that comes on a Rover.



    IF you think you do have a BB problem just take the chain off the chainring, so the crank can spin freely and spin it to see if it grinds or doesn't spin freely. IF there is a problem you replace the whole BB bearings (Yours is a complete sealed unit.) You CAN take one apart with lots of difficulty, here is a video showing how to do that: It is a huge pain most people replace it they can go for like $25- $30 or so.

    FWIW I'd be very surprised if your BB was worn, gritty.

    I got the u bolt and it helps. Still got a little movement. Mostly I think from having to keep pushing backup in the seat as no matter how the seat is set i still have to reach a little with shorter leg. This slides me forward. Next going to add small block on right pedal. Thanks for your help. Love my Rover and won't give up no matter how many adjustments i need to do. Thanks again.

    My wife got her Rover last April. It is a 2016 with the NuVinci 330 hub. I have a 2013 silver Rover I bought used in May for a lot less than a new Rambler that I wanted real bad. Oh well. Saved a bunch.
    It rolls nicely.
