  • Can't find a working website for them now. I know there are old videos of a collaboration with TT on trike wheels. Evidently, no go.

  • I see they have since removed, as it has been a while since I have been on here. Aero Spoke is the expensive carbon fiber wheels, these ss wheels were aluminum and somewhat heavy, but cool looking. Too bad, I liked the look on my tandem.
  • When I ride, never away for long and always try to stay in visual with trike. Otherwise, cable lock thick enough that thief must carry heavy duty cable cutters(like bolt cutter). I think a tracker chip could work? Most times, my dog goes with too, s…
  • I too have a tandem pro. I bought it second hand and I like it. Idler system is a little cumbersome, but I am to convert to teracycle idlers and eliminate a few that are not needed.
  • I have a hybrid, I had bought it in 2012 on a whim. Okay I guess, but not worth the extra cost. Resale on higher mileage cars is not there. Not worth much. Fuel savings doesn't pan out either. that same year, I had bought a regular gas powered compa…
  • I had bought a set last year. Trouble is that when you went to tighten axle nut, interference from the washer/spacer, would not let wheels turn. Terra trike techs apparently hadn't heard this. I sent them back with the understanding that they would …
  • Certainly cheap enough!

  • May I ask as to what the complete set-up runs $$$?

  • Ironman, you are hired! I am shipping my trike to you tomorrow, LOL! I just can't buy any time to work on the trike this winter. Always something coming up. Maybe we'll have another cold snap to keep me indoors so I can finally do all my trike chore…
  • Thanks for the invite Ironman. Some day I hope to have all my work done so I can play all day....LOL!!!
  • LOL!!! Only thing is, my wife is downwind on the tandem!
  • OOps, don't know how I added to that other link.

  • Found the videos on you tube. Guess I just didn't look hard enough. I am redoing the brakes on my tandem, so we'll see how it goes.
  • J.....the poop, well sometimes... Aside from the ice cream and beer, I find myself eating far less as a direct result of the trike.....thus I am full of poop less often, although some friends may disagree!
  • My before stretching routine amounts to lacing up my riding shoes... My mid ride stretch is usually getting off the trike to pee and get an ice cream..... My post ride stretch/exercise is typically a barley pop.....or two!
  • I bought some led rope lights on ebay and attached to flag pole as a lighted whip. Very bright. Multi mode. Works for me. Mine are powered by 3 AAA batteries.
  • Chonk, I am glad to hear that. Sometimes I am accused of being in my own little world, but I knew I couldn't be the only one.
