  • @Finn59 The business cards come with wildflower seeds embedded in them, so if someone just drops it on the ground, it's not really littering. It's a unique idea.
  • How thick is the case and the diameter of the neck on it? And the length, over-all? This may or may not work for you: http://shop.terratrike.com/product-p/tt600343.htm I have one, and it barely fits my largest tripod in it with the end pockets…
  • @hooktribe Salute Brother! As a fellow disabled Navy Veteran, I am more sorry for your loss than I can express in the limited emotions of a forum. 22 of our brothers and sisters take their own lives every day in the U.S. That's a frightening numb…
  • For any mid-drive motors, I would use the right gear sensor for your setup for any hub, other than the NuVinci. This is the only hub that doesn't require you to unload the chain in order to shift. Use the IGH designated sensor for any IGH gearing.…

  • Here's a link on various recommendations for mid-driven IGH's: https://www.electricbike.com/mid-drive-kit-igh/ The SA-8 isn't listed here. I've read from other sources that this hub can be broken if you try shifting it under pedal only load If…

  • There are two major different motor systems when it comes to ebikes and etrikes. The first is the hub motor system. The motor is basically the wheel so it doesn't matter one whit what type of gearing you have on it, because the motor is complete…
  • JamesR wrote: » doesnt quite work that way, elrique - on a hub motor, chain only moves when the pedals are turned. Knew that already, which was exactly the point I was trying to make. Thanks for the confirmation, though.
  • It is interesting to note that the thread you linked to has a picture of a BBS02 "inspired" by Elrique64. I am the same Elrique64 that inspired that particular build.. The person there and I had been in contact quite a bit during his testing/devel…
  • Spindle size isn't an issue at all if you use a mid-drive motor. Since you wouldn't be replacing the rear wheel at all... The biggest advantage of a mid-drive motor would be the ability to use the gearing in the rear with the motor. (Which can'…
  • Externals also require you to unload a bit when you shift. And for that reason there is a gear shift sensor just for externals. (Second paragraph in my reply above mentioned them, too.) The only real advantage I can see for externals is, you ca…
  • Mount it on the off side's seat back bar. Then use a bungy to tie it down to the onside bar. It will bring the dog closer to the frame, which could be a downside to this idea, though.
  • The hub (or cassette) you have, and the range it provides is going to be a factor in the motor's ability to assist you. If the low range on your hub is different than someone else's, your results are going to be different than his would be. My N…
  • The display I had at that time of that ride didn't give watts. The one I have now gives watts, but it only gives it right NOW, and nothing historical. I would guess it was pulling about 1200 watts, though, since that's the highest I've seen the cu…

  • I have a Bafang BBS02 motor on my Rover. With it I can climb almost any hill I've encountered here in Western Washington (Paved or graveled.) and still maintain 6-10mph while pedaling with the motor providing assist during the climb. (Some of them…

  • That Low Rider Rack is a really great way to mount batteries. I have one on each side of it, for better than 25AH of juice available by just swapping out one for the other. I think you will be very happy with your battery pack mounted on it. It's…

  • @TrikeBirder thanks, man. I hope everyone takes something positive from these forums every time they come here. Part of being in a community like forums, is sharing knowledge, but it's also learning about the other people on the forums. Even th…
  • If you are riding on concrete or pavement, watch his feet, too. Like @TCEd said, the pads aren't as toughened as an older dog's would be, so he could injure them and you wouldn't know it until you saw bloody foot prints on the carpet. Watch him …

  • There used to be a video on youtube that had a trike with skis on it. The guy was riding in the snow... Spinning what we used to call broedies. I think there was another one where a guy was speeding down a hill, taking a pretty hefty turn at the …
  • The Schlumpf drives require a chamfer on the BB in order to work correctly. This isn't a deep chamfer, but one that takes about half of the thickness of the BB's shell width. There is a tool that Schlumpf makes and sells (as well as rents) for put…
  • If you want to go a bit higher in the price range, you could also look at other Internally Geared Cranks. There is the Schlumpf Mountain Drive, which gives a 2.5:1 down. (Giving a 32T crank down to an 13T. Effective if you want to go sub-10GI.) …
  • How many user s on BROL have done this mod with a Traveler? That's the first thought you should have, when you read about them doing this mod. You are going to raise the front end by roughly 3" at the wheels. So at the cranks, more like 5-6". …
  • You are never going to be as fast on a trike as you would be on a bike. There are a couple of reasons for this. Probably the most important, the trike is heavier than a bike would be. But you also have more contact with the road with the third …
  • You can get the tubes designed for the tires. I think they are sold on Amazon. I am still using the regular 2.125" tubes, though. I should be using wider rims as well. But haven't bitten that bullet either. Right now, what I have works, so …
