Lower gears for Trike

  1. I have an S&B tadpole trike currently with a single 34 tooth frt (lowest possible at 110BCD) and a
    11-32 cassette. Looking for a way to get lower gears without going to expense of Schlumpf drive or
    SRAM 3X8 hub. A 34 tooth cassette wouldn't get me that much lower. Do not need high gears. My
    thought is to find a single spider to take a 22tooth chain ring. Anyone know of such a crank? Or
    have any better ideas?

    We had an S&B trike and traded the rear wheel for a 20" (406) for stability improvement. A change
    like this also gives a much lower gear.

    Jack Baker traded us equally for the wheel but even a new one at your LBS wouldn't be a
    great expense.

    You -could- put an SRAM 3x9 hub on the back.
