Blue ICE with Kojak

Since the new 24″ Kojak’s needed some breaking-in, I’ve put them on the Blue ICE. Looks like the front wheels are probably a bit out of alignment (the rod end bearings are worn-out), since the tyres show some wear already … Continue reading

Completing ‘Nasty’

This gallery contains 8 photos.

‘Nasty’ is more or less complete by now. After some more rummaging in the parts bin, she got a head rest, a B+M IQ-X E (150 lux) front light and a third rear light. To move the handle bars a … Continue reading

Critical Mass in Hamburg

This gallery contains 2 photos.

Took ‘Nasty’ to the Critical Mass in Hamburg yesterday. That was fun! Haven’t attended in ages. There where only few recumbents, but I counted three HPV Scorpion RS 20 trikes in the same brownish-orange colour. Found a pretty nice video … Continue reading

More ‘Nasty’ images

This gallery contains 5 photos.

Today, ‘Nasty‘ got mirrors, seat bags, a speedo and some lights. Tomorrow, she get some faster tyres. The Kojak’s are ok…ish, but I’m curious how they compare to a pair of 24″ Shredda Evo and a 26″ Marathon Almotion.

First Ride

Meet Nasty

This gallery contains 5 photos.

This is ‘Nasty’, my new ride. The unholy offspring of a once dazzling ICE Vortex+ mixed with some Sprint DNA. Her 24″ front wheels were built with 25-507 Alienation Insurgent rims to fit a pair of 24″ Kojak’s. Unfortunately, with … Continue reading

Blue ICE – current setup

Looks like Spring arrived. The blue Sprint got a second B&M IQ Cyo 80 Lux front light and a new rear fender lately (its actually a 26″ front fender).

Aero Bullet Velomobile Shell

I’ve mentioned the Aero Bullet velomobile shell from AEM in Florida some time ago in an older post about velomobile shells for trikes. While the first production shells were made from fiber glass, they’re now made from carbon fiber. No … Continue reading
