Are these still available? I've looked on the for sale page and can't find any trace.

Hello Tilley.

Yes, they are still for sale. Are you interested in all three? Are you building something yourself?

Cheers

Ok. Yes Tim, there were photos. I will hopefully be able to get a photo added tomorrow. The brakes are 70cm drum.

Cheers, John

I guess you mean 70mm!

Excellent brakes those...

The original posting in the for sale section was removed after the regulation period of time so I am setting the asking price which may be different. I have no record of the original.

£100 each including postage and packing.

If you want to know more about them, please ask.

Not sure if the seller is including axles (Q/R or standard) for the front wheels?

If they're not and you need them, an option for you (at about the same price per wheel) is to build your own front pair with new components:


A) About £20 incl delivery from JE James cycles, for 74 (36x2, +2) plain s/s spokes and nipples :

https://www.jejamescycles.com/halo-stainless-steel-plain-gauge-14g-spoke-with-nipple.html


B) Approx. £27.53 incl delivery from taylor-wheels_english (EBay), for 2x Buechel Robust single-wall rim 20-inch 406-19 black from taylor-wheels_english (EBay)


https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Buechel-Robust-single-wall-rim-20-inch-406-19-black/331540682735

and

C) £153.98 for pair of Left and Right NEW Sturmey Archer X-SD Single Sided 70mm Drum Brake Hub from practicalcyclesuk (EBay)

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Sturmey-Archer-X-SD-Single-Sided-70mm-Drum-Brake-Hub-left-or-right-mount/222665758331?var=521518289804

With braking at the hub rather than the rim, getting perfectly true (lateral) wheelbuilds won't be critical (just rewarding).


I haven't costed the rear wheel, but a half-decent shimano 135mm Freehub and 9-speed cassette will be less than the SA hub for a front wheel. You'll need to pay attention to whether your rear wheel will need an offset/dished build, or not (if heading for an ICE trike frame, you'll be wanting to make it un-dished ; IIRC all ICE trikes have an offset rear frame, so there's no need to dish the rear wheel).

Depending on how much time you've got, it's an option.

What's for sale is exactly as per photos. Bolts were needed for replacement wheels from ICE which had the 90mm drums. The original brake levers, cables and adjusters were reused so the levers and adjusters in the photo are brand new..
There is no rim tape on the rear wheel.

These wheels are genuine ICE wheels.

The rear wheel for sale was used for about a month from new, then replaced by a new wheel with an electric motor hub when an e assist kit was fitted.

The front wheels for sale were used for short undemanding runs for under 500 miles from new. Even so, three spoke nipples per wheel failed under their heads at the wheelrim surface so were rebuilt by The Bike Works in Edinburgh at a cost of £40 each. The Bike Works do regular servicing and repairs for the legendary David Gardener of Laid Back Bikes, Edinburgh and work to the highest standards.
