Busy today taking brake levers and shifters off of handlebar units. I put the tube on the non-drive portion of the chain. And having done that, I had to go out and test ride it on the street again. There are definite speed limitations when you can only use the small gear on the front. With no brakes, leaning into a turn, slapping the bars as far as they will go in one direction -- I am amazed at how tight a turn it will make!!! Severe fun!
FYI - It is 24" between the tips of my handlebars. Has anyone crossed their brake lines? I'm thinking of it because there would be less tight turns and concerns with the cables. The tires on the front wheels are airless. That makes a bit more noise and drag ... but would probably last longer than normal tires, if the trike was motorized.
