Re: Trident Trike

Hi Stef, welcome to the wonderful world of trikes. I bought my first trike without even going look at one, with no regrets may I say, direct from ICE. I can't ride a bicycle any more after coming off the loser fighting with too many cars (the 4 bikes were killed so can't complain) . I've got two ICE...
