Damm It

Postby Rowley Runner » Tue Jul 17, 2012 12:54 am

Doctors advice "No exercise for at least two weeks" Reason prepatellar bursitis :( (AKA housemaids knee) why did i get it? To many consecutive days at the driving range trying to improve my swing :shock: I think the moral of this story is clear to all :roll:

And get better via resting as well.
And I'm going damn it as well.
Since putting my fairing on the trike it won't go thru the door. Reason trike is too wide for the doors and I used to turn it on it's side.
Solution :shock:

Have you tried doing it rear wheel first, on its side to angle it through the doorway?

Yep tried that, that was how I was doing it first, rear wheel and then tip on side. Now that not possible with the fairing on as it makes the height too wide on it's side.
Gotta keep those double doors clear of pallets!!!!

What is the mount used with your fairing?

I was thinking that if the trike with fairing was just a tad over the doorway width then maybe if the mount had a pivot or quick-release on the post that sits in front of the seat you could drop it down. The fairing that you have had options for mounts, if you got the fixed mount this might still be modified, but only do so if it'll fit anyway.

Another option might be plonking the trike onto a furniture trolley or engine hoist, rolling it into the house that way and storing on that trolley standing up or at an angle. Giles Puckett did something like this years back when making his own full trike fairing.

Rebuild the door and jam to make them bigger? Oh, you mean an easier solution... maybe build a shed for it with a ground anchor to chain it to? Sell it and ride your DF? Make a QR for the fairing? Move house?

It's the terracycle gx fairing with stock with the One Point Mount Kit.
Rebuild door hmmm I've got a sledgehammer :twisted: Metal frame with glass surrounds

Sell my trike :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:
I think you get the picture.
Ride my DF :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:
Got a shoulder injury that prevents it

The One Point Mount Kit I have an issue with it. The clamp provided gave no tension and wouldn't clamp to the post. I got a hose clamp to fix it temporarily

Get in touch with the guy at Terracycle.
They probably have an answer. I think he did ask you to contact him re the original problem when you mentioned it on BROL. Check back on that thread.

If all else fails send it down here and I'll put it on my trike. :D
It certainly looks neat. Did you get a chance to see if it gave more speed? I reckon that and a tailbox ought to give a few kmh.

Are you renting or buying?

It could possibly be time to think about storing your Precioussss in a shed or something like Poiter's.

I had a slightly similar problem (just the trike without the fairing), so I solved it (albeit rather expensively) by getting an enclosed patio on the back of the house. There were other reasons for the patio as well, but it's certainly made life a lot easier to store two trikes, a mountain bike, a Dahon fold-up and a BoB trailer.
