This is the exact reason that I want to try them.

As well as having no way locally to try them I'm having trouble finding somewhere to buy them.

Re: Nazca Fuego or Back to the future!

I ride an ICE B1 with hamster bars (tiller steering) as well as a Qnt 26. I will be very soon going to Bikefix to collect a Challenge Fujin SL2 with tiller steering. I would like to try superman bars but everyone I've spoken to about it advises me against it. Also, I've recently read that for tight ...

In the past 18 months I've changed to a Qnt 26 and an ICE B1.

Re: Bicycle Chain by the meter

I'm not sure what make or model you ride but ICE in Falmouth sell the correct length of chain for a trike for similar price as a standard chain.

Re: Steering when starting

I've recently started riding an ICE B1 that I got from Neil. I think I had the same problem as you when I started but never gave it much thought on the flat I just persevered and got better. I do still sometimes get it on uphill starts. Looking at your pedals, would I be right in saying they are sin...

Re: Trike on a ferry

Many Thanks, I shall venture to France at some point in the future then. Is there anything else I need to know about cycling in France? Apart from the obvious, other side of the road. How about roundabouts? Sorry to sound daft but I've not been abroad very often. I've only been in the archery club t...

Trike on a ferry

I'm thinking of doing a bit of cycling in France. My incentive for this is an Archery club in Pontivy. As I'm a member of Tavistock Co. of Archers and Tavistock is twined with Pontivy we have an exchange each year. Last year they came to us, this year we go there. All of the arrangements are made fo...

Re: Oops, sheared bolt...

My brother has snapped that bolt and also lost that bolt. When he snapped it the first time he didn't realize what had happened (he's thick as two short planks) and ended up sawing into the frame. No matter what I tried I couldn't get the bolt out. I took it to ICE, they got it out and patched the f...

Re: Bottle dynamo placement. Am I mad?

Having used a dynamo on a rear suspension ICE S with the curved mono stay. Due to the width of the rear forks the dynamo wasn't at a very good angle, this caused a lot of cap wear on the top edge. I even tried putting washers in to get it closer to the wheel to get a better angle. Looking at your pi...

Re: Accident Insurance?

I had an argument with a guy at work a few years ago about this very subject. I said that as my ICE trike is a named item I had full cover with my house insurance, he insisted that I didn't. When I got home I phoned my insurers to ask this question. The person that I spoke to couldn't answer right a...

Handle bars, wraparound or hamster!!

As you might see by my recent post on the pictures thread I've got myself an ICE B1 with hamster bars. I was wondering if anybody is in a position to compare hamster bars to wraparound bars and which is easiest to get on with. One of the reasons that I ask is that with hamster bars and the front boo...

Re: Drive train changes....

You can still keep the bottom end gears when buying from a.n.other. When you get the new cassette very carefully grid off the rivets that hold the cassette together. Then not so carefully as it's not a problem to put the cassette back together take the 26 tooth sprocket off the new cassette and repl...

Re: Problem with drum brakes(Trice S)

I've had the same problem many times and suspect that I'm going to get it again very soon if I don't change my cables. Due to the "puddles" that I've had to ride through. Another thing that I do after talking to Neil at ICE is to put Milburn cable oilers in at the bottom of the loop. Then ...
