I have ridden it for a short test-ride, and more of them will happen.Did you ride it now it is all painted?
It seems than september will be the time that campings are open again. So as you want yo ride in the Netherlands, September is probably the time that it is possible.
I am hoping for good weather then, so I can go and travel around a bit.
Thanks Ed'. It is just an attempt to be noticed. And it does/is.That is a very colorful thing of beauty.
I'll bet it was hard to find something with just the right colors.
How anyone can miss seeing 'them bright colors', is beyond me.
Oh, and your trike looks great as well.
Accident Report May 11th 2020:
The car park was empty of all vehicles and is currently closed to the public because of the current lockdown.
Hi Ed',Karma my friend...karma!
If the 'public' were to be there as well, you may have run into them as well.
Sorry to hear about your misadventure. Sounds like it could have been much worse.
Are the hub or spokes damaged?
I was more surprised than hurt Emiel. The being tossed out of the seat was pure momentum at work. It serves me right for being so "cocky" about how easily I was getting around the perimeter of the car-park without using my hands to steer. A good lesson has been learnt.I think that you made to much notice for the tree and that he punished you by dropping the tree-branch.
As long as you have noting, it's OK. The bike can always be fixed.
I had a few days ago a crash and landed on my side. I was coming down a bridge and I missed my exit, so I tried to do a 180. That went gor 90 degrees the right way and 90 degrees the wrong way. I rolled my Trike on the side and landed on my steer that broke.
It's welded again and I can ride it again. I wasn't hurt ad all.
If you have one to spare, it would be great Paul, much appreciated.Dan
Ohhhh painful , and full marks for fessing up to your misadventure.
Do you want one of the threaded parts which is now bent ?
I would love to know, where to get them.If you have one to spare, it would be great Paul, much appreciated.
Just to be sure we are on the same page.......It is this long threaded bit here with the 3 (well, 2 and a half) M16 nuts on.
But..... other than the unexpected and unwelcome stop the trike's handling and responsiveness was awesome. I was very impressed with the ease with which the trike could be steered. It might be better to put SPD pedals on it as that aids push-pull left/right I think. But it was very, very satisfying to be able to meander all over/round the flat car park with such ease. The turning circle is tiny compared to the tadpole for sure. I was just a bit too eager/cocky/careless (pick one). But overall I was very impressed with the quality of the ride. When it is repaired I shall take it on my longer-ride to give it a bit more of a shakedown. The 8-Spd is very well-behaved although not as good as the N380. The 34T granny-gear makes a big difference to the ease of use.
A mere flesh-wound, the trike made it home with a very wobbly wheel and axle and lives to tell the tale. I will be ordering a new rim and QR pin today.So sorry to hear of your misfortune after all that work. I can imagine how much you would have been enjoying the ride.
I have always mistrusted trees. That is substantiated by the fact that whenever a strongish wind blows, their branches throw a "sooky" and seek a position much closer to the ground to stay out of the wind. Storms are worse as more and more of them do it.
It seems that your colour scheme did not provide sufficient warning to those errant attackers to stay clear.
