Recently, I bought a second hand TerraTrike Tour and so far I am having a great time.
However, on long trips (+20 miles), I get sore knees and I need to reduce the pace. A good night rest will do the trick.
I would have thought that my muscles are well developed as I have been in training on a stationary
recumbent bike for 6 months now. Granted, the position on the stationary bike is higher than on the trike, so maybe not the same muscles are being used.
I have some questions maybe some of you can answer.
1. Are there any ergonomic guidelines how to sit correctly on a Terra Trike to avoid knee pains. Am I sitting too low? If so, can I raise the seat?
2. I am 6ft 1inches tall and I can calculate my Xseem. But how can I tell if my bike is the right size for me. In other words, how do I calculate the size of my trike? My trike came with two booms of which the longer one is installed.
I would like to know if any of you have experienced such pains and if you were able to solve this problem
as I really would like to continue to do long trips on my trike.
Thanks for your advice
