  • If you are happy and familiar with BBsHD why change? 30-35 mph might be a little too much for an unsuspended high trike like a Rambler. Better figure on some Big Bens and look carefully at you chainring/cadence combos, particularly w a 20" rear whee…
  • 85F and bright sunshine in PCB this aft. Lovely ride this am. Azaleas are popping out all over. Return to the frozen north is looming.... shudder

  • NO. 10,000 km w,o prob
  • You don't take or split the caliper apart to remove pads. There is a tiny hex head pin that goes through the top of both pads.... other side of your picture...and then the pads just drop out. Your pads in pictures don't look worn out . Clean them up…
  • Need the gear sensor for safety ot the IGH otherwise danger of crunchy
  • Probably have Alhongas. Should say on actuation arm. Two align and hold caliper to mount. Two hold out to frame. One nut for actuator arm
  • Cable packs generally are cheap and come with the cable with two ends swaged on already. You cut off the end that you don't need.(Different shifters/controls use different ends) and insert the cable into the old or new cable housing. Also will need …
  • Rotor is supposed to bend as only one pad moves pushing the rotor against the fixed pad.
  • Chonk Would suggest in a new forum, the search function have ability to search only the title of the post for a word or a phrase rather than the whole post. Too much repetition if it searches whole post

  • Took the photo. See them most days. 20 mph wo eassist today but tailwind. L5 assist 200 watt against it. Only other trikes spotted this year two Sun deltas. Doing 50 km daily

  • James R has it down pat. Easy if you understand what you are trying to do and how the disk brakes work
  • My Avid BB7 kit came w a torx wrench for removing disk bolts and ease of adjusting pads. one in each wheel set
  • My first one failed around 10000 km l outside. Right outside is a little 'rough' and I will replace in spring. It is 17,000+ km. They are inexpensive and I have several spares. The trick may be extracting the old bearing from the hub. might need a b…
  • Finn Did greasing the bearings smooth out the rotation completely? Curious.
  • Know finding specifics on Alhonga brakes can be a pain, but the procedure on adjusting mechanical disk brakes is the same whether bike or trike and there are a lot of YouTubes out there that can help. RJ The Bike Guy has a great set of Videos on a l…
  • Whoa!! Which model trike. On a Rover the wheel nuts are both right hand thread!!
  • Easy enough to change, but some newer ones apparently require reamer after installing in cruciform. I have 17,000+ km on mine and still can not detect significant wear with calipers. BUT very important to grease them regularly -twice yearly- and adj…
  • Agree with TrikeBirder's points. The N380 is a fine piece of equipment but expensive particularly if you opt to go eassist later as it would restrict you to a mid drive or relacing a wheel with a hub motor and something other than a Nuvinci in the r…
  • Don't think so. Probably want to run in the middle of your cassette from a wear standpoint. 5th is 17th for me and like to start in 4th 20T, or 3rd 23T for hilly , both usually with a bump on throttle. Just replaced chain,derailleur, and cassette b…
  • I have the 48 T on a Rover and it is fine but I set the controller for 10 settings and reduced the 1-5 settings to space the speed ranges in there closer together. Custom programming the settings is not difficult but understanding what to change is …
  • Made it back to the Beach from Canada and then from Orlando. Lots of branches and trees on ground east of Tallahassee. S Ontario, Michigan and Indiana were brutal -15 F Jan 2 in Indianapolis. Missed biking because of travel and cold/flu .... hopeful…
  • But it depends on wheel and tire size. I have 24 " rear and 20 front, both with 2.12 tire size. I'll throw a tape on it tomorrow (if I remember) Found a tape ... to top of metal side support at front, from the floor is approx 19.25 inches
  • An expansion on previous posting That was a Rambler and a RamblerAT. Today stopped at their main store in LadyLake, The Villages. They have an extensive stock of both TerraTrike and Catrike models there and were very friendly accommodating folks …
  • What about a TerraCycle Universal battery mount . Expensive but solid rep for quality
  • Stopped in The Villages where they had a Rambler and Rambler on diplay. Looks like the difference between sa half ton and a Mack truck. Sits high. At tires. HD rims, granny gear frt rings.. 41T rear 10sp cassette. Versa bars. Look and feel complete…
  • Removing Rover wheels. First one to go was on left and pulling it off the spindle pulled the inside bearing out of the hub. Enough corrosion on axle to keep it from sliding off. Used some emory cloth to clean it up and put two new cartridge bearing…
  • Had to head north today to visit the gene pool for a few days. Made it to Nashville and still looking for the cold 35F Left the trike in the Condo. It locked it's brakes and refused to move an inch from the Beach. Detroit tomorrow and then slip int…
