I'm not sure what I've done...

Open Road!
I can't backpedal anymore on the trike. The chain comes off the top of the front rings the moment I try. This is awkward if I don't position my feet correctly for accelerating when I come to a stop.

I think the idler wheel under the seat has stopped passing the chain backwards but I don't know why this should be.

You're in the right place for expertise. More backpedalling done in Canberra than anywhere else.

It turns out that the cross tubes supporting the seat have snapped loose from where they're supposed to be.

One of them is now resting on the idler wheel & preventing it from turning on a backpedal.

Looks like I may be up for a new seat...

Still until I get a replacement (or at least a borrowed) seat the trike is NOT really roadworthy...
