Sunday Service: Drivetrain DIY

Contact:

Explore the elements of a tricycle drivetrain from the pedals through the cranks, chain, rear cog or cassette, and into the wheel.

The drivetrain is the critical element of your trike. It is also one of the key consumable systems, meaning: it wears and needs replacement through use. We'll cover methods for checking wear and replacing elements of the drivetrain. What do you need special tools for? What can you do with the tools around you?

Morning snacks and caffeine provided. Workshop begins when the caffeine kicks in. Bring your conundrums and puzzles. We can work on them together.

We will have an HP Velotechnik Gekko FX26 folding trike outfitted with a Bionx 350W electric-assist system in the shop and available for test-riding on 27 August 2015.

This is a very nice system and hard to find.

On trikes with no derailleur post we are often challenged when mounting a front headlight.

This trike has already been heavily customized. We put a 700c / 29'er rear wheel on with a road tire. It often sports a TerraCycle fairing.
