Sounds good to me. You may want to test the difference between a crash stop using the front brakes only and then the rear one and then both. My guess is that you won't find too much advantage in using the back as well as the front as there will be very little weight on it. My SA Drum brakes on the Trice will just lift the rear wheel, at that point the braking effort from a rear brake is approximately zero.tdr1nka said:The X has front disc brakes tied to the one lever, they stop on a dime and are easy enough to balance.
Maybe I just need to set the rear brake a bit squishy for drag on the downhills and just avoid using it the rest of the time?
Cheers BBM! It's good to hear from another KMX rider.Badbackman said:the winzip brakes on the KMX are excellent but if they are binding on movement it sounds like an adjustment problem, on my X class it holds enough to stand the bike up with no "binding or rubbing " problem when on the move
The Trice is a case in point as it evolved from square tubing... when I bought mine in 1994 it had just changed to round. ICE used to have pictures on their site, but they have been removed.Badbackman said:Ive got a kmx X Class and had a lot of fun on it, it was my first recumbent it certainly gives you a workout though, tried a secondhand Trice this Easter weekend and that was a very old model with view to purchasing and was amazed at the difference, there is no comparison the trice was very light way faster and nippier and totally different experience my son is now hammering the KMX (its built for it) while im flying lighter than air. Possibly only really feeling the benefit because of time spent on KMX earlier.
