    • Creaking from boom clamp

      Noticed a creaking noise when pedaling hard up hill and traced it to the boom clamp. When off the trike and pressing down hard on the clamp it reproduced the same noise experienced when riding. When the clamp was loose, the noise stopped.
      Problem was solved by tightening the clamp when sitting on the trike so that it was pre-loaded. Would be interested in any explantions for this.
