Re: Hase Kettwiesel recumbent trike £250

My guestimate was slightly under. It’s 18.5 kg.

Re: Hase Kettwiesel recumbent trike £250

It's 188cm long, which can be reduced by 35cm to 153cm by removing front wheel and turning fork. It's 84cm wide. I'm not sure of the weight, my guestimate would be 35-40lbs but I'll check with the bathroom scales.

Hi Bob,

Yes it's just one wheel drive and doesn't have a differential.

Re: Long tail cargo (possibly e-bike), or regular bike for commuting with 1 child in hilly town

I tried a few child carrying options over the years; Brompton with IT Chair brilliant solution for carrying 2-4 yr old where you might want to include public transport for part of the journey and/or have limited storage space at home or unsafe parking at destination. Child seat on a standard bike wa...

Re: Genesis Vagabond

I keep thinking about getting one of those framesets too. I've got a pair of WTB Nano 29x2.1 ready if I do. They come up a little bigger than 2" Big Bens (which are really 1.8"), seem to roll at least as well on road and have better grip off road. Probably not as puncture resistant, but I ...

Re: Brompton mods - 2x3 gearing to 3x3

That makes sense Brucey. Mind you on my Brompton I chose to change from 3 speed to singlespeed, which was fine at the time for the routes I was using it on.

Re: Brompton mods - 2x3 gearing to 3x3

May have been all in my mind, but I felt the 5sp SA was more draggy than the 3.

Probably be worth contacting Ben at Kinetics in Glasgow www.kinetics-online.co.uk as he’s done several Brompton gearing upgrades including Shimano Alfines and Rolhofs.

Re: of a tyre like a Pasela, but larger volume

Depending on your weight you probably could run them lower. The 30f, 45r I was using is for my 86kg weight. Certainly worth giving running a lower pressure a try.

Re: of a tyre like a Pasela, but larger volume

I was tempted by the Compass Rat Trap Pass tyres, but I passed because of my concerns over mud on the road. Whilst I wait for a larger vol Pasela I've decided to let go of my weight concerns for now and try some 26 x 2.15 Big Ben's (760g each for the 'Lite' skin version eek!). Before I put the Pasel...

of a tyre like a Pasela, but larger volume

I like the folding bead 26 x 1.75" Paselas. Supple enough, light enough and just enough tread to make riding lanes with occassional bits of tractor mud OK. What I'd really like is the same features with a bit more volume. A real life 26 x 52mm (the Paselas come up 42mm) would be ideal. Big Appl...

Re: Advice/Info Please on *another* Dawes Galaxy

My Galaxy is the same vintage. It has the same rear brake and is fine with 700 size wheel. The original front I've swapped out for a tektro very deep drop caliper I had, so I'm not sure if the original would have accepted a 700 wheel. The slightly smaller 700 rim size has allowed me to use 700 x 37m...
