Trike Servic Stand
 
I built this stand to get the rear drive wheel off the ground for chain and drive service. Very easy project and all parts are listed.

And this one shows how the trike is used on stand:

Thats a great idea. Think I'll b off to the hardware tomorrow :D .
Just a question though; does the rear fall off that stand during high cadence pedal action and gear changes? I use a brick and my trike always seems to fall off (the brick) at some point, due to the unloaded rear moving around :( . Does the stand eliminate this annoyance?

If you notice in the photos I created a notch so that the dropout does not slip in the mount. I also place a brick in front of the front wheels to prevent the trike from moving forward. I used it yesterday while turning the pedals real fast and shifting through the gears. Didn't fall off once. A lot depends on shape of rear dropout. Also you can shorten part "F" to lower it a little more so the angle is not as large. Adjust "F" for your trike. The length for mine is for a 26" 559 wheel.

Great idea for a stand. I have a Trice T arriving in a few days and was wondering how I would manage some of the simple maintenance jobs without a stand that would hold the trike. Your ideas are elegantly simple and inexpensive. Thanks so much for sharing them!

Your welcome enjoy the trice T.
