FOUNDER'S DAY...

...is on Sunday July 18th this year apparently. Usual Stanford Hall venue, this year's themes are 75 years of the Vintage Motor Cycle Club, and more relevant to us, 100 years of Moto Guzzi.

See you there?

Re: TRACKING

Hi Richard.

Thank you for the kind offer; yes, I'd love to borrow one to have a go!

I'm a bit overwhelmed with other work at the moment (in fact the Triking is behind a wall of DIY/clearance junk at present) but as soon as I've managed to get a bit of free time I'll contact you.

Thanks again!

Re: TRACKING

Thanks for the replies.

Both are a definite improvement on string. I'll knock up some wooden tracking gauges as per the picture whilst keeping my eye on Ebay for a cheap Trakrite.

TRACKING

I'm a straightedge and string man myself, but is there a 'best practice' method for Trikings? And what's the consensus on toe-in amount?
I found a bit of feathering on my tyres so must have cocked up last time I adjusted...

Re: LOOSE SPOKES

An update on my wheels... I disassembled the wheel to check the hub spoke drillings. No cracks, no wear, thank goodness. On reassembly, I found that the wheel had been rebuilt previously with quite a few replacement spokes. Unfortunately the replacements had been ordered too long and cut down to fit...

the holes were elongated and made it impossible to set up the wheel correctly.
Will check for this - have had this on an old outfit, with the same effect, so long ago I'd forgotten!

Thanks for the answers, chaps.

LOOSE SPOKES

Simple question - why do my spokes keep loosening? I have a Type 1 and despite a regular checking and retightening, when I push the Triking back into the garage after even a gentle trip, there's the 'orrible crinkling noise from the front wheels. Even on the rear wheels of sidecar combinations I've ...
