T-Cycle Easy Racer Idler Kit Return Side Elite
210000003959Regular price $84.00 Save $0.00
The Easy Racers Return Idler Kit allows you to get rid of that old stock S bend jockey wheel setup or fixed chaintube, and mount a high quality TerraCycle Return Idler directly to your existing idler tab. You'll find the upgrade is smooth, easy to maintain and ultra durable. Installation is super easy, especially if you're only replacing a chaintube. The tensioner has more parts to take off, and you should do a quick chain length check. On most bikes, you won't need to change anything, but on bikes that were set up with a bit of extra chain, you may want to shorten it by 1 or 2 sets of links. A quick shift into the big-big combination and you'll know.
T-Cycle Floating Chaintube Holder with Flared Tube
210000003952Regular price $28.50 Save $0.00
TerraCycle's floating chaintube holder allows you to use short sections of chaintube which will have the ability to move up and down, left and right with the chain, while staying in place fore and aft to protect your frame from chain rub. Traditional methods of fixing chaintubes to recumbents usually result in the tube fighting the chain, causing friction and noise since the chaintubes are fixed in place or minimally movable.
This new system follows the same philosophy as their floating idlers- it's best to allow movement as you change gears and let the chain go where it needs to go. This is proving to be the solution for many bikes/trikes that need some frame protection without adding additional idlers. Hostel Shoppe offers the mount in a "Universal" version that attaches to the frame with Zip Ties. It's possible to put this version almost anyplace.
Chaintubes have a reputation for being noisy, draggy, and prone to filling with chain crud. While this can be true, it doesn't have to be. It's possible to have a chain tube that is almost friction free, and unlikely to get gunked up.
Here's how to do it:

T-Cycle Double Sided Clamp On Chain Keeper
210000003950Regular price $32.00 Save $0.00
The Clamp-On Double-Sided Chain Keeper is designed to maintain your chain on an Over/Under Idler. The double-sided and single-sided Clamp-On Chain Keepers are TerraCycle exclusive products. Nowhere else will you find a chain keeper that clamps onto the head of an idler bolt. Clamping on means freedom to float your chain keeper side to side with the chain and the idler, and it means super easy setup and maintenance. The abrasion resistant nylon arm, stainless steel fasteners and high quality machined aluminum means your Clamp-On Double-Sided Chain Keeper will be with you a long time.
These clamp on chainkeepers were developed to enable idler float and to make everyone's lives simpler. Since the chainkeeper attaches itself to the head of the idler bolt, it is completely independent of everything else. That means the idler bolt can be tightened without squeezing the idler or chainkeeper. This allows the idler to float side to side with the chain for better efficiency. Also, since this chainkeeper clamps itself on, you don't have to put it on until everything else is done- very handy for maintenance. Install the idler and any spacers needed to keep it from rubbing on things and tighten the idler bolt. Lay in the chains, and THEN install the chainkeeper. How easy is that?

If more than one person rides your trike, then a Universal Boom Adjust Chain Tensioner is perfect to eliminate the worries of whether the chain is too long or too short!
