- "Does the frame accept most brands of Disk Brakes, or only the Tektro or Avid brakes as used on the complete bike?"
The frame comes with disc brake mounts according to the "International standard 2000", so you can mount all disc brakes that meet that standard, like Shimano, Avid and Tektro.
- "Can I register online for the extended 10-year-warranty?"
Currently, you can only register by postal mail with the registration form that was provided with your new bike. We offer you as original purchaser a extended 10-year warranty, if you register with us within four weeks after you bought your new bike. (The detailed warranty conditions are listed in your recumbent's manual).
- "What is the maximum load for the Spirit?"
The maximum load is 130 kg (286 lbs). The maximum total weight of rider, luggage and bike is 150 kg.
- "Can I use a trailer with my Spirit?"
You are allowed to use trailers up to 40 kg (88 lbs) with the Spirit. We recommend you to assemble it with the Weber-coupling Type E. Always check that the suspension and the trailer still work properly after you have mounted the trailer. Take care that the trailer does not damage the frame in case the bicycle falls over.
