We will come to US at the beginning of next month and will bring large selection of our bikes and trikes for testing. Come to Chicago to visit the RCC and test ride our bikes.
We would like to invite you to visit our presentation during SPEZI where we will have three stands where you can not only see, but also test ride our bikes and trikes.
There are many questions comming from our customers every day. And we think it make sense to post them here together with our answers so you may find here an answer to your question.
Frequently Asked Questions
We will add them here one by one as they come and later we will try to sort them out somehow.
If you have any other question, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will answer it as soon as possible.
Why the Avid BB7 upgrade for T-tris is more expensive than for the TRIcon?
The T-Tris has a standard king pins in its basic version (Alivio components). These king pins are without quick releases. Those can be used only with drum brakes. So if a customer wants disc brakes he has to pay for those better king pins which we call "UNI king pins" and also for disc brakes.
On the other hand the TRIcon as a top level ultra folding trike, has the UNI king pins in standard also for drum brakes so the customer asking discs need to pay only the upcharge for the disc brakes.
Can you tell me if i can transform AZUB MAX into the AZUB 5? Are the frames same?
The MAX, 5 and MINI have different frames and you cannot change it into another model. The only possibility would be to change from MAX to MINI, but also in this case the steering geometry is not really perfect. But it works quite fine.
It is the same with Ibex, Apus and Bufo.
If I will use the Max and put the front boom for the paddaling inside the frame so that I can crank it comfortable, I am concerned, that I touch the wheel with my shoes when making a sharp turn - is this the case?
It is quite common on all recumbents with the short wheel base concept (SWB) and "yes", it will probably happen also on the MAX. The question is if this is really a problem. After getting used to the bike you will forget it. You will find a way to pedal sharp turns the way you do not touch the wheel or you will not pedal at all at such times. At the end it is not danger as your heel always move aside. Problem would be in case the crank touches the wheel, but this never happen on our bikes.
We can explain it even more by e-mail, but really: Do not worry.
