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.

  • Place a hydration bladder inside a TerraTrike Seat Bag. Easily done. Couple of other discussions on the subject: https://www.terratrike.com/ttforum/discussion/3179/water-bladder https://www.terratrike.com/ttforum/discussion/394/hydration-packs
  • You did a stoppie. Feather the braking, lightly. These are disc brakes, not cantilevers. Every small amount of pressure is greater than realized. Use two fingers on the levers, or one. Lightly pull back to reduce speed going down hill, but don't…
  • Often wondered how a tandem option would increase weight capacity since it is a longer boom with a seat, pedals, chain. That would be an extra 100# on the hubs, spindles, frame with an added extended beam in tow. Would think another rider would i…
  • Heard others put a hydration bladder in a TT seat bag. There are standard and deluxe TT bags available. Although I do have a Camelbak Lobo have not used with the Rover as of yet. Been using 3 water bottles, and have a water filtration system on h…
  • Would think the hub mounts would be the major concern. When I was 360# and considering a TerraTrike was told the Rambler could still be a viable option. When figuring in clothing, accessories, repair tools, food, water that would of exceeded the …
  • Lil over a month ago I rode to town as a thunderstorm was (supposedly) tracking far north. So went for a ride and saw lightning many miles away. About an hour later that thunderstorm grew much larger and I got wet. Very wet. The winds were throwing …
  • Never even seen them on their website. Was looking for a seat extension or an idea someone may have tried when I found the wheels posted through Google.
  • Have some thoughts on a prototype. Will see how to turns out.
  • That's not including the installation, which is used to chamfer the BB.
  • Get the Gran Tourismo if you can front the bucks. There are some new purple limited edition colors available again. I would go with the 20 speed personally. If it only had a 450# load capacity. LOL But if you are looking for packing/folding I …
  • Have to hiss the forum's edit function. Changed a URL and poof! Was a company that sold Rover look-a-likes that had a collar with a front post that could be mounted over their squared boom. I contacted them a few years back asking if it would fit…
  • @Lilypad runs a N380 on his Path with a Schlumpf up front. He crosses the Snake River Bridge fairly easily. Roger said many times he is quite pleased with the N380 though he did mention it is heavier. Though I'm not as agile and close to the gro…
  • BB7 stop quicker, having more pad to disc surface, and pad shape is superior of the three. From my understanding BB5 are smaller than Alhonga - so would be a step-down. Avid BB7 are also a whole lot easier to adjust, specially compared to an Alhon…
  • There's more to that $400 difference on the Gran Tourismo though. Look at the specs. Wished this website had the ability to use cells or a spreadsheet... x16 Gear Inches: 27-106 (AR) Crankset: FSA Tempo Double 165mm 34t/50t Bottom Bracket: RPM…

  • Have used a cable lock at church, and run locks through the end loops to the disc brakes. Cable is only good as a 'bare minimum' protection, which can be defeated by a pair of dikes/wire cutters. Cables are a bundled twisting of smaller cables, w…
  • Rover with Wide Handlebars, Versa Bars, and a Mirror. Ended up putting one on the other side later on. 2nd Year 3rd Year - Current The seat cushion keeps the ends of the seat bars from poking the back of the legs.
  • Some use hose clamps instead of squared U bolts. I did not want to mar up the paint as that would allow rust to set in.
  • Been there. You'll want to get a pair of square U bolts that fit across the boom. 2 inch ones iirc. Had picked up a pair of straight extenders, bolts, nuts & lock washer or nyloks per U bolt. Between the extenders I put leather material in be…
  • Extended Warranty: TerraTrike now offers an extended warranty for 2nd party purchased used TerraTrikes. The warranty is valid for 3 years and applies to all trikes except the Tandem model. It is available for $149.95 and can be purchased through ou…
  • Was in 7th gear a lot this evening on Rover and was in 8th twice. Cannot hold 8 on the highway or side roads for long, as it is a bear to pedal in. Has to be something more comfortable between 7th and 8th gears on the Sturmey-Archer I8 IGH. Never…
  • Geez, that derailleur really is low to the ground. Why doesn't TT use a shorter derailleur arm on their trikes?
  • TerraTrike Owners group: Anyone know if the riderfest group photo was posted anywhere yet? I have been watching for it hoping it would get posted here. Thx Not yet....Sydney has been working on the pics this week. They will be on Jeff Yonker’s…
  • Ahh, a Rohloff Speedhub. A mere $1,277 on Amazon.
  • 14 speed IGH?? What is it?
  • Idaho wants rain!
  • Aye, Efneo has equivalent of 3 chainrings in one unit. A big plus for that one, as more gear range! Think they have a US distributor now too.
  • Huzzah! Rover will be a good fit for you then. ... minus the wild hog charges. Might have to get a bull bar cage. (kidding) I would recommend getting a items that can be mounted to the Versa Bars.) Enjoy your ride!!
  • IMO, if you want 15 MPH while pedaling easier go for an external geared trike with chain rings up front. A Rover can be converted, although would be easier with external gearing. There are various internal hubs, fore and aft, that can help acquir…
