Gear Talk / Four chain ring set up
« on: January 21, 2019, 08:48:55 pm »
 I have a trike that I had thought about installing four chain rings for a wider range of gearing. The set up would be: 22-30-42-52, the spacing is right if the derailleur will shift that far. I also have spacer washer to go between the 22 and 30 chain rings.  Has anyone tried this set up and what was the out come ???

  I have been looking at different trikes and found the Ice trike Adventure interesting. My question is, how safe are these trikes on the road and touring with them in traffic. I road one and my head was about even with the grill of a car. Is this a normal feeling?

General Discussion / mountain bike

I need information on mt. bikes. I Owen a trek 4500 mt. bike 24 sped, and the rear cassette is 11/30 and the chain rings 42/32/22  which is four years old. I  am pondering the thought of buying a Trek 4900 disc. The 4900 cassette is a 11/36 and the chain rings 42/32/24. Question, would it be wise to try and up date my old bike or go ahead and buy the new bike.
