Re: 11th International Gathering of Portafolds & Ansfolds (2019)

Hi Mathew, having completed the 600 mile round trip to the Isle of Man and back I have every confidence we can get it to this event this year. If you still have room for us. Last year was very unfortunate due to a family bereavement .
Please remind me how to pay

Re: Hydraulic brakes

A frame question

Hi all, playing with the Portafold on the back of my Trike I found it’s a nightmare to reverse mainly due to the very short A frame. Has anyone ever found the need to lengthen there A frame. It would also lower the nose weight .

Re: Hydraulic brakes

This is the no spill hydraulic coupling. Very easy to connect and disconnect. My Trike weighs 750kg. Nearly twice that of a Reliant robin. This would work very well with smaller cars as well
