Sunday Service: Schlumpf and Patterson

Contact:

We're all familiar with internally geared hubs... from those three-speed Sturmey Archer hubs that are so ubiquitous to the ultra high-tech Rohloff 14-speed and Shimano Alfine 11-speed. But, how many people are familiar with the internally geared cranks? Even a good fifteen years after we produced our first Schlumpf PBW folding bikes, the Schlumpf has still not gained in the public eye and the recently introduced Patterson Metropolis is a rarity. At this workshop, we'll show these drives, explain how they might help you, and work through the details of what it actually takes to put one on your trike. Morning snacks and caffeine provided. Workshop begins when the caffeine kicks in. Bring a flat tube to fix and tire conundrums and puzzles. Go for a ride on nearby American River Trail afterwards

The Road and the Speed were the first two recumbent trike models designed and built in the USA by Catrike. The Road is now being discontinued and follows in the Speed's footsteps from several years ago.

A customer loaded his ICE Full Fat recumbent adventure trike on an inexpensive hitch-mount platform rack.

With a solid strap-down system, it works.
