Eagle Detail pics

Well, as promised here are better pics of the venerable Eagle trike.

It has two wheel drive, but one is the main drive wheel, always driven, and the other only comes under power in higher gears because it's secondary.

Here is the secondary drive wheel:



As you can see, the derailler is non cabled as it is intended not to change.

Here is the main drive wheel


Moving to the front, we have the, you guessed it, front wheel! Tada!


Here's the drivetrain in a nutshell:


Pedals with three chainrings drive a mid-drive cluster with eight that drive the main wheel and secondary wheel via a jackshaft. The main wheel has eight more that are changeable and the secondary wheel is pretty much set.


Here's the mid drive


This is the main wheel side of the jackshaft.


Here's the secondary drive wheel side, this extension and the bearings, and such cost me around $300, but I think it'll be worth it.

remove the seat pad and lift the seat sling and you see:

Which also shows the seat clamp.

Coming up on 3AM, I'm beat!

That'll have to do until next time!

You sure have a lot of chain to lube on that trike. It looks like a well-built, sturdy unit. Thanks for the pics!

Wow! I've never had that many gears to choose from!! You could spin this thing up Mt. Everest if you got some studded tires.

Pretty ingenious set-up.

Very impressive bit of engineering going on with that puppy. I enjoyed the detailed pics a lot, and look forward to seeing more. I have seen trikes on group rides, but never really checked one out up close. Next time I come upon one I will ask for a closer look.
