Best day to drive a Triking?

The answer of course is every day but.... Took the Triking out on a 25 mile run today on quiet Norfolk roads with a mix of tight/open corners, long straights, mostly smooth road surfaces and perfect gear changes (yes - it makes a change!). Best of all though, it was a crisp Autumn day with bright su...

Re: Donor bike V5 and reg number

It seems best to keep the frame and V5 from the donor until the Triking has passed the MSVA and is registered. The frame can then have the number ground off before you sell it though my experience was that no-one is really interested in buying a secondhand frame - in the end I got rid of it with a b...

Re: Dolly Towing

I found this on the Barlow trailers website... A-frames and dollies If you attach an A-frame to a car in order to tow it with a larger vehicle, the car plus the A-frame counts as a trailer. If you use a dolly to tow a broken-down vehicle, the dolly counts as a trailer. In both cases, the usual safet...

I did all my suspension measurements with the Triking resting on it's wheels - the logic being that you want the various degrees of caster/camber/toe in to be effective at the point where the suspension normally resides. Of course the drivers weight, fuel load, road conditions will effect that but i...

Wide wheels, camber, castor

Triking with wide front wheels I've been meaning to post this up for a while, the recent Castor posts have prompted me to finally do it..! Regular forum readers will no doubt be familar with my desire to make a Triking build as difficult as possible. Instead of being content to build a standard Type...
