I've bought my first trike!!!

Postby gudism » Fri Feb 14, 2014 12:08 pm

Just had to share, I've got my first trike!

After years of wanting one I finally have it in my hands.

It is a Peformer F trike (folding)

Tiagra Disc 30s
Main Frame: Steerering / Alloy
Rear fork: Cr-Mo
Seat: FRP w/headrest
Shifter: Microshift bar end shifter 10S
Lever: Tektro : CL520
Front Derailleur:Microshift R439
Rear Derailleur: Shimano Tiagra long cage 10S
Crankset: Shimano Tiagra 50/39/30 170L
Cassette: Shimano Tiagra 12/30t
Wheelset: F/mono 32H R/chosen A5017 32H
Tires: Kenda K193 20/26 x1.25 100psi
Brakes: Avid BB5 Disc Brake
Pedal: Clipless

It is only 6 months old, picked up for $1000. Has rear rack, panniers as shown as well as a full set of fenders. Retails new in Australia at around the $2000 mark with no extras (rack, panniers, fenders), so I am pretty happy with it. The seller had 6 people reply to his ad in 2 hours so many others thought it was a good buy too, but I had to day off work so I got there first!

Had a little ride when I got it home to break my virginity on a bent trike, and it was awesome!.......definitely a different experience and I'll need to ride more and more to get my bent legs and get used to riding one. Can't wait!, though I am having a little seat issue due to an odd design I cant seem to get a pin to hold the seat in properly on the bottom bracket........

Don't forget to add a few photos of the beast to our "Show off your ride" thread.
