Rover Tandem review on BROL
September 8, 2011
BentriderOnline.com has reviewed the Rover Tandem attachment:
TerraTrikes entry-level Rover has been an unmitigated success. It’s sold in huge numbers and has brought a lot of new riders into the recumbent trike segment. It’s also proven to be a very adaptable design that has spawned several rather major modifications. The most major of these is TerraTrike’s $899 tandem attachement. I got a chance to try one of these out with my son recently. We didn’t ride it long enough for a full on review, but I thought I’d share what we learned here
At first glance, the Rover tandem looks like… well… a Rover tandem. The tandem kit retains the same square tube, industrial look of the single. I don’t think that anyone will ever call it pretty but it works. I didn’t have a scale handy but when we moved the Tandem around I found that it didn’t feel nearly as heavy as I expected it to be.
My stoker was my 12 year old son. He’s about 5’2” and around 90 pounds. I’m 5’11” and about 200 lbs. We both fit on the Rover Tandem just fine with plenty of room for adjustment either way..
