Re: New ebiker reporting in.

Ok until a couple of weeks ago when I started getting a creaking noise from the crank area. Looking online it looks like it could be the motor bolts need retorquing? I’m gonna get it into the dealers though as it’s only a few months old. Possible prob though is that I couldn’t register it on the UK ...

Re: Recumbent. A gadget?

Just rolling along on my trike and a roadie passes saying "a nice gadget!" before I could respond he had shot up the road. I regard my trike as transport. At what point is a bike/trike just a gadget or transport? Is your Recumbent a gadget? You should’ve caught him up to continue the conv...

New ebiker reporting in.

Hello! I’ve been on this forum for many years, posting mainly over on the ‘non standard human powered vehicles’ section as I’ve ridden recumbents 99% of the time on my commute. I still intend to do most of my commutes on the Catrike 700 trike, but yesterday I acquired a Giant Fastroad e bike. I’ve o...

Re: Rear wheel tight fit. Panda motor +9 speed. ICE recumbent

The 20inch rear wheel with a Panda electric motor and 9 speed on my wìfe's ICE ADVENTURE recumbent trike is a very tight fit and needs to be carefully fitted in the frame by entering the drive side first. It goes in, but my concern is being in the middle of nowhere with a puncture in the rear tyre!...

Re: Trike wanted.

As I’ve now sold the Borealis, I’m in the market for a trike. It’s gotta be fast, and it’s gotta be low, so if anyone’s selling a Trice, Sprint, Vortex, Catrike 700, Windcheetah or similar, give me a shout. I know there are a few on eBay, but nothing that tickles my fancy, cheers, Carl.

Re: Trice Borealis shell for sale.

Too expensive for me at the moment and I'm only just starting to dip my toes into the recumbent thing, although after seeing the advert I've spent an hour on youtube watching velomobile videos... I live in hilly Cornwall and dragging my QNT up the hills is already fairly slow, how much does the she...

Re: Trice Borealis shell for sale.

Reading up suggests the QNT or Sprint NT... would it fit on a ‘normal’ sprint? I’d say......yes (90% sure), however as the standard Sprint is 795mm? against the 695 Trice QNT, then the wheels would I’d guess be 50mm proud of the body either side....maybe a better turning circle though? Also, having...
