MODELS TO ACCOMMODATE ANY RIDING STYLE AND BUDGET!
More and more people each year are discovering how Triking is a fun, easy, emission-free way to keep fit. TerraTrikes offer a great view of the scenery and an immediate relief from the aches and pains of traditional bicycles.
They are great at replacing your car on short trips while laughing at gas prices. They are well respected in traffic due to their curious shape, and they are easy to transport on traditional bike racks or on a TerraTrike specific hitch rack. TerraTrikes have a comfort level and a cool factor that cannot be denied. Treat yourself to a test ride today, and be part of the solution.
I was watching the Olympics this morning and they showed how Koreans used to ski on wooden skis. The woodworker used fire to bend the front end of the skis. Do you think that would work for your fenders also?
If you are headed down near Miami, there is a group called the South Florida Recumbent Riders on Facebook. I never was able to meet up with them and they like to go 20-30 miles which was out of my range. But, they ride almost every day. There is …
Southpaw, it is hard to get a trike in the back of an SUV. If you put it in forward, it's hard to balance. Backwards, the pedals hit the ground while you are lifting it. Ramps would be your best option. A few years go I saw some thin ones made t…
So, I see you guys have been online today rather than outside. It's a beautiful,sunny 75 degrees here. I thought about taking the kayak out for a spin but may ride instead. I love this part of Florida. We get 6 months of spring and fall.
Here's what I've done so far:
24" wheels all around
Extended and modified handlebars (wide on bottom, standard on top)
Terra Cycle dual cup holder, added PVC tube to hold Hydro Flask bottle
Added used Patterson crank on front
Cheap rack from Wa…
Buy a 2-inch U bolt and place it behind the seat on the beam. Also, buy some rubber to put between the U bolt and the beam to protect it. That will keep the seat in the same position all the time. I struggled with this same problem and this is th…
That's a good plan Finn. I think about it. So what have you got to carry my kayak to the beach?
If you get one person on each of the front wheels, the trike isn't hard to lift onto the Alpaca. I don't always have someone else around.
Sorry Finn59, I just now understand what you were asking. I thought you wondered if everyone bought new trikes annually.
Yes, I have made many changes and still need more but funds are more limited now that I ought a home. And, I'm more concern…
That second example looks a lot like the tool used to tighten spokes. I used to have one of those.
I'm thinking it might be smart to carry a second chain but I still need the chain puller to put it on, right?
I usually wear sweat pants and they keep my legs warm but air goes up the ankle opening. I was thinking of finding some kind of athletic boot that would cover the ankles and put foot straps on the pants.
We hit 74 with sunshine yesterday so I'll…
Good idea about the gloves. I bought garden gloves that are rubber in one side and cloth on the other. They would work for working with the chain.
Where would I buy a chain breaker tool and a master link?
Gordon_O, how does your trike fit lengthwise in the RAV4? I have a 2010 Ford Escape (old design) and after putting the 24" wheels and tires on my Rover, it won't fit inside. I've tried angles and everything but it just won't make it. I have the m…
Do you have to replace the housing? I had my shift cable go bad because my leg was hitting it as I pedaled not long after I bought the trike. The lbs only put a new cable in the housing and it still works fine three years later.
I had the lbs r…
