ICE trike front boom for sale

Postby DGG1941 » 4 Dec 2019, 12:29pm

Front boom with derailleur post to fit ICE trike - marked as 7005 T6. £35
It's from my Adventure and is in good shape. It has been replaced with a new boom with a Pinion 18 gearbox as the Pinion needs a special fixture.

As an aside the Pinion is stunning!

I have had a Pinion box on my Velomo trike for three years now and it just gets better the more I use it. For recumbent use I think it beats a Rohloff hub hands down. The ease with which you can just swap booms makes it a very valid option. For uprights it is a totally different and costly proposition. Let us know how you get on.

DGG,

Where did you buy your boom and Pinion from?

Thanks

OB

Hello OB

It was the original build. A lot of the recumbent makers now have a Pinion option listed (it can take a bit of ferreting around on websites). If you can't get an original makers boom you might strike lucky if your boom diameter matches theirs. Failing that it is not a major job for fabricator or frame builder to cobble one up (diy?).

Good luck.

Mark

Ooh... That's nice to know.
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

My Pinion was supplied by Velomo in Germany, and I think they can supply most size booms. Fitting the new boom took a while but it is a good fit. Their customer service was excellent - Steffen can be reached on info@velomo.eu.

ICE are also very helpful... They fitted a Schlumpf HSD to the boom of my Gekko
