I need your expert advice here. My husband John is still trying to assemble my trike after 3 days now. It is a tadpole Tricruiser recumbent trike.
I noticed during today's test 4th test ride that it felt like something was holding it back, especially when using my bikeE right next to it. It can't coast downhill effortlessly.
So I suggested we look at the wheels and they all seem too tight. If you pick up the trike and try to spin the wheels backwards, they don't spin but for a second.
The front wheels, the tightest, have disc brakes on them and the back wheel has a caliper brake. All wheels seem "too" tight.
Does anyone know how to loosen up wheels so that they work effortlessly? The back caliper brake does not seem to be rubbing against the tire but it's hard to tell since it is a little wobbly when it spins.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much,
