St Charles, IL: HP Velotechnik introduced a new high-performance folding trike into a booming trike market.

The Gekko FX-26 has the foldability of the proven Gekko travel-trike, but now gets the better-efficiency, comfort, and handling performance of a 26" drive-wheel.

St. Charles, IL: At Recumbent CycleCon 2014, Inspired Cycle Engineering (ICE) introduced its new 26" drivewheel suspension.

The Sprint 26-RS brings the efficiency of a 26" drive wheel to rear suspension comfort, reducing the comfort vs. speed tradeoff.

Once again, we had the opportunity to turn out in support of Kyle Bryant and his band of amazing people.

350 riders rode whichever ride worked best for them: 60, 40, 10, 5, or 1 to raise funds for research to cure FA.

An incredible $110,000 was raised as well as the hopes of all.

Rivendell Rohloff (now, for something completely different)

Submitted by hugh on 23 March 2014 - 6:30pm

It's quite an honor when someone is so happy with they work you did on their recumbent trike, that they want you to do a really special thing on a different cycle they own.

Recently, a gentleman with a Rivendell touring bike came to me for a Rohloff customization request. The challenge is to put some kind of do-hickey on the bike that will accept a conventional Rohloff torque arm system without actually requiring the hassle of using a torque arm (they make tire fixing more of a challenge than it needs to be.)

Congratulations, T, C, and J on successful completion of the Shifting Workshop and passing the Practical Exam with flying stars!

There's no fooling you with random adjustment of limit screws and barrel adjusters.

Next time, Alignment. We'll make some nice alignment tools and use 'em.
