New Fender for ‘Nasty’

I’ve finally managed to order a new rear fender for the Vortex. Well, actually its a SKS front fender. The old fender was a tiny bit too short and its silver color didn’t quite fit as well. I think it … Continue reading

Blue ICE got a Nose

Since this summer is fairly wet, I’ve mounted the KingCycle nose fairing to the Blue ICE. The nose fairing looks quite nice with the white Ortlieb X-Press panniers. The mirrors mounted to the fairing offer a perfect rear view.

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

‘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.

Changed the front wheels to a wheel set with sturdier rims (DMR DeeVee 32-507), shod with Schwalbe Shredda Evo 50-507. The worn-in Shredda handle much better than the new Kojak. The brand new drum brakes felt a bit weak yesterday, … Continue reading

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

The postman came and delivered the new handle bar and chain. I couldn’t resist and made ‘Nasty’ roadworthy. She rides actually a lot smoother than I though. The rear fender definitely needs a little ‘spoiler’ similar to the fender of … Continue reading

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 Vortex 2 DNA.* Her 24″ front wheels were built with 25-507 Alienation Insurgent rims to fit a pair of 24″ Kojak’s. Unfortunately, … 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).
