    Hi, I already have a Rover but would be interested in the sandals if you would consider selling them separately. I've looked them up new on Nashbar, but I'd just as soon give you some money as them.

  • Not sure if this is ok first of all I don’t own a trike yet.. I had a friend who said I should look into these bikes. I had a tumor remove from my spine which left my leg mess up I made my mine up to look into electric bike in case I need assistance I’ll pretty sure I’ll need it. While looking at them I noticed the tires range in size and with . Is there any recommendations for a beginner ? My first day looking

  • I want to buy a trike but am not at this time able to get to a store to purchase one. I briefly rode a basic Rover several yrs ago in a parking lot.
    Since I can’t get to a store would buying direct from the be my best bet. I’m pretty sure a Rover with a nuvinchi (.) is my best choice. I hated fumbling with gears when I had a bike thinking the nuvinchi would be a good way to go


    I have read they ship assembled. Is that correct. How much putting together adjusting would I be needing to do before I can go riding.? I’m thinking I should also get: rack and market bags, lights with brake lights, flags, air pump, water bottle holder, chain and lock. And what else

    I'm somewhat confused on this note. I accidently found it. Still learning this forum.

    So, thanks for the invite. I am in the White mountains of AZ, at 6300 ft.

    We have used low gear, as we need it around here. We did not hear/feel it rubbing. If necessary I'll build a hanger bending tool.

    Thanks again.

  • Had to dodge out of a New Plymouth Parade invitation due to a projected 107° F temperature. Have fun out there, Roger. Hope he fares well.

  • Thanks for your comment. We have made three trips from Michigan to Georgia in the last year and half to ride the Silver Comet. The Silver Comet ranks right close to the top of our list of favorite trails. Additionally, I have to say that we have been very impressed with the state of Georgia over all. It is a beautiful state.

    We make two to three "destination" trips each year. This year we went to GA in February, and then SE Minnesota in April. We are considering a trip to PA next spring to focus on the Great Allegheny Passage. In between these destination trips we make many day trips all over the state of Michigan. Michigan has over 3,600 miles of Rail Trails, so there are plenty of beautiful trials from which to choose. We are leaving tomorrow for an extended weekend in Northern Lower Michigan to ride two or three days. All told, during the summer we probably average about six days of riding each month. It is an activity that my wife and I can share and totally love.

    Hello wondered where you lived, if close to Southern New Mexico you could bring it over, I'd be glad to help you for free. You DID buy it at a real TT dealer? They should have set it up correctly for you. You never rode it in low low gears, so you would have felt/seen the cage rubbing earlier? One thing you can do is raising the trike and put it in high/high gears, and look from behind to see that the chain-line is straight up and down. There should be a straight line thru the cassette sprocket and the two derailleur pulleys. Here is a video that might help. https://www.parktool.com/blog/repair-help/rear-derailleur-hanger-alignment

    You can get by without the $75 Park tool by eyeballing it. Good luck!
