  • It was real easy to make and it weighs nothing, the rack was $97.00, and the aluminum angles were dirt cheap delivered from http://www.onlinemetals.com/. Then a minimal $$ for the bolts, nuts washers. I use two slip thru tiedown straps {anhttps://ww…

  • The pic of the bottom bracket bearings James R posted is what yours looks like. It really isn't rebuild-able. Too bad you don't live close I'd say bring it over and I'd show you how to check the bearings/bottom bracket. In order to check them you ne…

  • Finn those pads look great!1 Got lots of "meat" on them (Pad material). NO need to replace them unless they have had oil on them. I'd take them clean with sandpaper then alcohol and re-install adjust and go man go!
  • YES!! NO worries Glen my wife has a T&C {Grandma's van}, and my Rat fits perfectly LOTS of room to spare!
  • There are many youtube videos showing how to do it. "Some" bending of the rotor is "normal" didn't know how much yours bends?? Sram/Avid has instructions on how to adjust them also. https://www.sram.com/sites/default/files/techdocs/2006_BB5and7_Engl…
  • Got my RAT (Rambler All Terrain), last May and been working on it while sitting in a roll around shop stool. Have looked at many different DIY trike repair stands and thought perhaps one day I'll build one. I've built many a DIY tools for working on…
  • Looks Delicious!! That and good strong coffee and life is wonderful!

  • Finn59 wrote: » Ok. I’m shipping the wheels to you! I’ve repacked roller bearings before. This can’t be that difficult. Nope sorry I don't work on other people's trikes, I only teach them to work on THEIR bikes/trikes, LOL
  • Finn59 wrote: » Local shop is only open three days a week this time of year. Was going to hold off ordering online til I spoke to them. Can get 3 oz size for $9. Is that going to be enough if I repack them?? The adage of don’t fix what’s not broke…
