Re: Introductions - tell us about yourself

Morning all. Found this forum whilst looking for stuff on recumbent trikes, so been nosing around since.

Re: TRP Spyre Vs Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes

I've not used the TRP's, but have 8500 miles on my BB7 Roads on the commuter. Very few issues, the occasional inner pad adjustment is all I've done. As others have said, make sure you get the road version if using with 105 'brifters' as the pull ratio differs from the MTB ones.

I've since removed the fairing as I'm a fair weather triker, likewise the front mudguards. Lovely machine though, ICE Trice Q

Re: Family cycle carrying vehicles - any ideas?

I use a VW T5 camper with the VW tailgate rack. Manages my lot with 4 bikes. A 29er mtb, 700C hybrid, 700C CX and 24" mtb. Bit of an art form getting all the pedals etc in the right places, and that's why I take a photo on my phone before we head off on holiday every year
