Re: Removing and refitting rear wheel on bike

Tigerbiten, I would probably manage with the trike on its side just as you describe, but our Adventure RS also has a battery on the rear rack and a hub motor on the rear wheel, making it a much heavier wheel to work with. By having the machine upside down, gravity helps. I've tried with it on its si...

Re: Removing and refitting rear wheel on bike

We carry two short lengths of offcuts of plastic downpipe on the ICE Adventure trike. One is cut with a vee end . It is of a length to support the frame cross tube near one wheel when the trike is upside down . The support bar clamped near the other wheel, supports the other end. The bar end change ...

Re: Folding an ice trike

For local trips I can put the Adventure RS trike in the car if I remove the pedals and cover the chainrings, then drop the back of the seat as far as I can. It can be pushed in to the car so that the cranks and front of the boom are between the front seats. Hence the reason for covering the chainrin...

Size 6 EEE width Ladies shoes with recessed cleats

Is there such a shoe available? It's for my wife to use on her recumbent trike . It's a safety issue because if your feet slip off the pedals they could be caught under the frame while the trike keeps going !!!! Currently she has toe clips and straps but reaching forward to fasten or release the str...

Has nobody booked a boat bike tour using De Amsterdam as the river boat on the Southern Holland tour in 2019?

Re: Cycle lights regulations in France, Belgium and Netherlands

I didn't expect to stir things up this much.

I wonder why mjr thinks a flashing light is a waste of energy?

I have for example a Cateye rear light which will last only 3hours on steady but 30hours on flashing. How can that be a waste of energy, surely it's conservation of energy. Yes or no?

Re: Cycle lights regulations in France, Belgium and Netherlands

All good stuff. Many thanks To mjr, a wee bit of information. The lights are for a different reason to the flag during day time .The lights can be seen from well over 500yards so that there is plenty of early warning to traffic from front or rear. The flag is invisible at that distance, although the...

Cycle lights regulations in France, Belgium and Netherlands

I have read conflicting reports about the use of flashing lights on the continent. Can anyone clarify what is allowed and what is not allowed in these three countries. The battery life of a rechargeable light can be so much more on flashing mode that it makes the choice of lights of a decent brightn...
