If you’ve been wondering what the differences are between the 2015 ICE trikes, this video should give you a quick overview of the Adventure, Sprint, VTX, and Full Fat.
While we were away in the first half of February, an ICE Full Fat was delivered to the shop and had to remain dormant until our return. It has since been sprung from its box, but far too early for Spring, which works out in this case because we got some great photos of it in the snow. This is a customer build, so it features a Rohloff on the rear with a Metropolis Patterson drive up front for a 2×14 gearing configuration. This is also a full suspension build, even though the fat tires on those Surly Clown Shoe rims provide plenty of absorption all on their own.
ICE Full Fat trikes start around the $8500 range. This one came in a bit north of that.
ICE Trikes earlier this year unveiled their upcoming Full Fat 26fs folding trike, a design based on the custom trike they built for Maria Leijerstam and her Antarctic ride.
The pictures they released were certainly lovely, but nothing communicates poetry in motion quite like some YouTube video. Enjoy!
The fine folks at ICE took advantage of the recent winter weather in Cornwall to ride their ICE trikes on, well, the ICE. Looking at the layer of ice on that loading dock, all I could think was “They would be so busted by OSHA in the US.”Continue reading »
We’ve received notice from ICE that they’re running a bit of a trike photo contest. All photos have to include a trike (any make or model, but I bet they’d prefer if it were an ICE) and can’t be radically altered in Photoshop (or Paintshop Pro or MS Paint or GIMP or MacPaint or DeluxeContinue reading »
You might remember all those photos we had of the then largely veiled 2010 ICE trikes from Interbike 2009. During that week, we begged ICE to let us shoot video of the folding mechanism, but they asked that we refrain so they could make their own splash with their successful launch. Well now the trikesContinue reading »
ICE sent along a link to a video at YouTube that features Dan, ICE’s chief mechanic, doing more than a bit of rock hopping on his trails bike. Add this to the list of “things you can’t do on a recumbent”.Continue reading »
ICE has released some new images and two short videos leading up to a larger announcement regarding the 2010 Trice line. In their press release was this line: “As many of you are aware, we’ve got some exciting innovations on the way for 2010.” You’re welcome. The videos can be found at ICE’s YouTube Channel.Continue reading »
For the sake of my sanity, I’m doing today’s update in a slightly different format: a huge wall of text followed by a huge wall of photos. It’s the only way I can do this quickly. You will perhaps want to acquaint yourself with the scrollbar along the right hand side of your browser windowContinue reading »
After yesterday’s sparse report, we’ve got loads to say about the first day of the indoor expo. Our first target was ICE, but on the way there we ran into Randy Schlitter at the test track where he was watching over a Trizard. A Trizard with mounted panniers. Hmmmm. We didn’t make it to theContinue reading »
