I'm in Durham, riding a ICE VTX and a Performer Cantus. If anybody is around this way give a shout out.

Re: Turbo Trainer with KMX Trike

I've not had a problem with that, all what I can say is I've tried 2 or 3 turbos and none of them are as good as the rollers.

No not really, I've not had any problems just plonk the trike down and off I go. I use the Elite E-Motion rollers witch has 3 settings of resistance, and with the gears on the trike it will keep anybody happy.

Re: Turbo Trainer with KMX Trike

Re: Pictures of your recumbent

After playing around with the bars and stems to get the steering right (taking a hacksaw to them), and changing the seat to a Thor Trike seat (the Performer seat is far to narrow) it's a lot of fun.
