  • Thanks for the thought. I'll check on the welder.

  • Elrique What are you pulling for watts during the climg? Whats the motor temp? How much PAS do you have programmed ?
  • For the "trikes" Don't forget The Terra Trike "Wedge". I know there are some mixed reviews but I really like mine. I was a lot more comfortable with it. Money well spent

  • Trkebirder No I did not. I did call and find out what they have to offer, and for my application it just wasn't enough. I original looked at the EVO and I this that setup which is basically a electrified Rambler would be great for suburbia with g…

  • Low rider rack order today along with the "Market Pannier" . Worried that it will hang to close to the ground.

  • ok thanks that's a big help. Looking at Hub motors with PAS.

  • Thanks everyone. I'm going back to the drawing board. I will keep the trike as is but will remove current Electric assist as it does me no good. Anyone here have good experience with climbing 12-16& grade hill over 1/2 mile please send me you co…
  • Here is the trike. If I could climb the hills un assisted I really wouldn't need assistance.
  • The TT guys are good. Really couldn't help much as there is nothing wrong with the trike. Will have to see what BionX comes up with to correct the issue.
  • Thanks for the ideas guys. I think I will call TT tomorrow and talk to them directly. I have tried just about everything I can now. I am up to 10 miles a day on the flat so my legs are getting better. Hope TT has some ideas.
  • wow that's good. wish I had that problem.
