    Trike short list and why...

    Yes, the hand throttle does provide a more gradual torque to the wheel. Still get a bit of spin, but not as much as engaging via peddle. I could use a .5 speed step.

    Trike short list and why...

    I notice at 30 psi, less of the tire makes contact with the pavement resulting in more slippage when taking off. It is nearly impossible to go from a dead stop without some tire spin on asphalt. That, I believe, is where most of my wear is coming from. Maybe my driving is more aggressive than...

    How is the wear on your front tire doing? At 120 miles, mine is 50% worn. 98% of my riding is on asphalt. I wonder what brand/style tire I should get when I'm ready for a new one? Certainly one that is better than 200 - 300 miles!

    I have around 90 miles on her. All the difference in the world with front fork tightness since I figured out what fits over the stem screw to hold everything together. Now THAT was a brain fart! Front basket is nice and tight - next I need a liner for it. I haven't yet taken my Chihuahua for...

    M-360 headlight switch

    Upon noting that the on/off and headlight dimmer switches didn't do what the Addmotor manual for this trike said they should do, I inquired of Addmotor. Here is their reply: Sorry for the late reply. We just confirmed this problem with our factory. The rocker and switch both control the...

    Here is the reply from Addmotor: Hello Gerald, Sorry for the late reply. We just confirmed this problem with our factory. The rocker and switch both control the headlight on/off. The brightness of the headlight cannot be adjusted. Best regards Addmotor That's ok with me. I doubt I would...

    I received the same video as you. But in viewing it again I saw that the washer/shim for the hold down screw was in the wrong place. I corrected it and now the front fork is as tight as it should be. However, I noticed a new quirk, this time in the electrical system. The headlight on off...

    Trike short list and why...

    Got reply from Addmotor. Descriptive words in English are not enough for them. Words like "loose fork", "how to eliminate wobble on front fork/handlebar assembly." They request a video that doesn't show the problem as well as words describe. Perhaps Addmotor techs are English as second...

    Thanks. I just sent Addmotor the same blurb I posted. I expect to hear from them Monday or Tuesday. In the meantime, yes, I will take you up on your offer. It's best to correct this sooner than later.

    Neat video and riding venue. There is one issue I have with the trike. I'm not sure if it is typical/normal or something amiss. But despite the steering stem appearing to be fully seated, there is front to back play in it. This is particularly evident when braking the front wheel - the top...

    Installed front basket to semi-recumbent trike

    My new Addmotor M-360 now has a front basket. It is a black wire Wald from Amazon. Only slight mods were required to fit. One was to increase the separation between the 2 clamps to the handlebar. The other was to tape and hose clamp the bottom of the basket to the stem. I have a thick felt...

    David.. What was the source of your basket insert? Did you have to modify it? By the way, the "cool factor" for this trike is off the charts. I get a conversation or thumbs up from whoever I pass.

    Well, I received the M360 early this afternoon. Here are my observatuons: Delivery: The Roadrunner truck driver brought the very large box into my garage. The box: As expected, large, more unwieldy than heavy. The seat mount post was sticking up through 3 layers of heavy cardboard. I took...

    Yes, delivery due Tuesday. And yes, I purchased 6 hours prior to end of sale.

    2019 Evelo Compass Trike

    To add to Dave's comment, I was considering a Compass - it was among the top 5 e-trikes I was evaluating for a time. However, the cost of the replacement battery given its comparatively modest amp/hour rating gave me pause. Additionally, inspite of the Compass's semi-fat 2.2" tires, the 4"...
