Trikers Jen and Tony … the Australian Journey

 UPDATE MAY 2017 – TRIKE UPGRADE FOR AUSTRALIAN TOUR!

Trikers Jen and Tony just got two Greenspeed Magnum trikes for their big tricycle adventure in the outback. Below are the capable Greenspeed trikes, followed by a note from Jen about the trek:

Hi Steve, just an update on ‘Triker Jen‘. I have managed to buy a secondhand Greenspeed Magnum with SRAM Dual Drive. Tony has bought. Magnum XL. These will now be what we will be doing our big outback trip with in July. We believe these will be able to manage the roads and loads we will be taking. No trailer. All will be on our trikes. Our biggest concern is carrying water for three days. We have been experimenting with different bags that we are buying from op shops to set up under our seat area. I have however bought a Sea to Summit 6-litre hydration pack that I hope will fit under my seat. It hasn’t arrived yet. Because I like my seat on the lowest position it doesn’t leave a lot of room. It is fun working all this out though. Tony’s headrest wasn’t comfortable so he made himself one that he said will also do as a pillow when we camp. Keep you posted. I have also set up a blog on WordPress that I will try to keep photos and stories on for our trip. Will pass on the link soon.

Trike Hobo discusses his pannier setup

Over the years I have been operating this Trike Asylum website, I have been asked many good questions about riding recumbent tricycles. Back in January 2010 when I first created TA, the reason was to simply put some potentially helpful trike information out there in one easy to find place, as recumbent trike websites were highly scarce at the time. I never expected it to amount to much more than giving me something to do in my spare time. Well, after a while, more and more people began visiting here, and it became apparent to me that these cool three-wheeled vehicles were pretty darn popular all over the planet (except Antarctica, for some reason).

These days, having written hundreds of thousands of words about trikes, both on this website and in my cycling books, I’ve covered quite a few trike-oriented topics. I’ve written so much at this point, and it’s spread out over hundreds of electronic and paper pages, that not everyone has read, or even found, it all. So, I get questions about things I’ve detailed already along the way, but they haven’t had the chance to stumble upon it yet. One of the most frequent questions I am asked is about panniers, and how to carry cargo on a recumbent tricycle, especially without having to pull a trailer.

Wishing to avoid spending hours re-typing responses to people with pannier questions about things I’ve already covered, I decided it might be a reasonable idea to produce a movie presentation about this very topic, thereby creating a place where all the folks with pannier questions could simply go and watch a movie about my thoughts. My personal pannier system has evolved over time, and an article I wrote in 2011 might not accurately reflect my current thoughts. With this new movie, all the thoughts in my head as of 2017 are documented for anyone to experience, and since the setup I am now using is probably the way it’s going to stay for me, this should be the definitive answer from my brain. I don’t think I’ll be changing this pannier setup because it flat works, and very well I might add. So after watching this, you’ll know all that I know (which is rather limited) …

This can be expanded to full screen by clicking the four little arrows next to the “Vimeo” word.

PS: I will put this movie on other appropriate pages of Trike Asylum, so once this post becomes ancient history, the movie will still be viewable. Heck, once I’m dead, you’ll probably still be able to watch it because I don’t think Vimeo or YouTube cancel accounts just because the account holder checks out. That’s the great thing about the internet, even dead people can keep right on yakking away at the world. The permanent URL for this movie is: https://vimeo.com/216942101, and my Vimeo page is: https://vimeo.com/wildsteve. But I have more movies available over on my YouTube account, which is found here. Vimeo is a classier presentation platform, thus the reason I began using it a while back, but there are a bunch of followers on YouTube, so I keep it active.
