Patterson Metropolis on Terratrike Rover

 

The Patterson Metropolis is an economical way to extend the gear range of an 8-speed Terratrike.

This morning we put one of these on an 8-speed Terratrike Rover. The drive installation went smoothly. Then, a Terratrike front light mount was used to reposition the front water bottle cage to a much more vertical angle -- much improving its ergonomics.

Simultaneously, a cable stop was positioned on the end of an attached bracket. The bracket was custom fashioned in the shop.

Shifting is via a Microshift twist shifter with the cable run along the mainline of the frame.

The result looks great!

Azub trikes are adventure ready

Azub will be at AlphaBENT on Wednesday, October 23 to show the latest Czech recumbent technology. Come to for test-rides, and bent-talk.

Catrike has made wider hubs with through-axles standard equipment on all large-wheel models. This change affects the following recumbent trike models: Expedition, 559, Dumont, and 700. The change promotes laterally stronger wheels and prevents movement within the dropouts under load at the expense of compatibility with equipment such as electric hub moters that are designed to the older 135mm dropout widths.
