Re: Website with trike routes?

I don't use OSM, I prefer OS or IGN for Spain & France. I use Viewranger on my phone for plotting and recording tracks and prefer to download gpx files from the likes of Wikiloc (which is brilliant for Spain) and then following these when I'm out on the bike or walking. Sometimes Open Cycle Map...

Re: Website with trike routes?

Nothing to stop people from adding to OSM already - but to go and reference OSM you have to know where you're heading for (i.e. have a route in mind).

I read that OP is looking for recommendations as to where to go, rather than looking up where they can't go ?

Re: Website with trike routes?

I'd suggest then we get a simple "sticky" thread going within this sub-Forum. Then those who have already found a route that works for three-wheelers can share. How about - "Trike-friendly UK Routes" or "TfUKR" ? Each Reply to start with key info: Route name, location (...

Re: spoke supplier recommendation

Small wheel spokes from JE James Cycles, nothing bad to report so far, but that is based on my yearly average build (n=1) :lol:

Re: 24" wheels for trike

I have a couple of 24" rims (matching, black) off a project if you want to pay the postage ? You could then re-use your existing hub arrangement, and just buy new spokes to suit. Would need to know how many spoke holes your existing hubs have - IIRC, the spare rims are 36h.

Re: Set of three 20inch ICE Adventure recumbent trike wheels

Not sure if the seller is including axles (Q/R or standard) for the front wheels? If they're not and you need them, an option for you (at about the same price per wheel) is to build your own front pair with new components: A) About £20 incl delivery from JE James cycles, for 74 (36x2, +2) plain s/s ...

Re: In for a penny - trike vs velomobile

I've thought some of the advantages a velo would offer over a trike - aerodynamics, protection against foul weather, increased carrying capacity - would be outweighed by the difficulty you'd have with its storage and transport. For example, I can carry my trike, folded, safely around the country in ...

Re: Performer JC-26X - where to order in Europe

Hello Pajel, some of us have had good experiences dealing with Performer directly, as they do not have a wide dealer network. Myself and Davyboy have found their sales manager (Christine) very helpful - it was a few years ago, but I think you can still email her directly christine@performer.com.tw H...

Lighted small Ebob.jpg A few years ago we were kindly loaned a Raleigh BOB, an aluminium-framed 26" wheel MTB-style bike. At the time it was so much lighter than anything my wife had ever ridden, and meant both of us were now taking bikes on holidays, and using them for pub outings - evenings ...
