Re: Wheel builders in Brizzle area

The other option would be the Bristol Bike project. They operate an evening session called the bike kitchen where experienced people can have access to the well stocked workshop and that includes at least 1 wheel building rig.

Re: Synthetic sleeping bag

If you are concerned with the packed size of the sleeping bag you could always look at a 2 season bag and a liner

Re: Carradice Super C panniers

Would you sell the rear panniers and the rain covers separately?

Re: carrying a water baldder on a recumbent

I have successfully installed a bladder into the back of the mesh seat on my TriceTNT, but it wasn't a straight forward install. I now have two bottle cages fixed to the rear of the seat frame. The bottles are accessible on the move and easy to refill and clean. As these are in addition to the centr...

Re: Camino by Trike?

I would agree I much prefer a circular route. Especially as transporting the trike on public transport is difficult.

Re: Avon Gorge Cycle Path (Route 41)

The surface of the track is at best compacted gravel. Much of the surface passes through the edge of woodland and the surface has a lot of leaf debris. It is therefore a fairly dirty surface but no deep or impassable mud. I have ridden it on a Dawes galaxy with full touring kit, an MTB, and now a re...

Re: Double brake lever , cable pull

I have 2 recumbent trikes both of which had a single lever operating the brakes on the 2 front wheels. The ice trike has SA drum brakes the KMX had mechanical disc brakes. Both trikes have a rear disc fitted but this is only a park brake. If a rear brake is used on a tadpole trike it will force the ...

Re: kmx steering pivot replacement

I upgraded my ICE to front suspension and had to replace the front bearing cups and races and soon realised it was the same as an upright bike. However the KMX is a lot less sophisticated, no cups and ball bearings. Just a sealed bearing unit in a plastic cap which is set into the square frame secti...
