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...

Re: Trice Borealis shell for sale.

Ooh.... that’s interesting... What are the fittings etc? (I.e what are the hard points needed on a trike?) There are 2 clamps on each arm of the cruciform, and 2 that are held on by the rear rack points. 2 straps pull the rear body towards the seat to prevent side to side movement of the shell. Wit...

Trice Borealis shell for sale. NOW SOLD!!

Due to a change of commute, and a 2nd family car, I am no longer using the Borealis as it doesn’t mix with cycle path obstructions. I am looking mainly to sell the shell, as the mint Trice QNT underneath is easy to carry over said path obstructions, and I’d like to keep her, but I would consider sel...
