ICE Sprint DIY Battery Bracket

Sometimes comes the question, where and how to mount the battery to a trike. The best place I found, is mounting the battery directly to the seat tubes, hanging low under the seat for enhanced cornering stability. The worst place … Continue reading

Nasty got new wheels

This gallery contains 4 photos.

Yeah, I know… I had every intention to ride with the 20″ front wheels for a while, but it was raining on the weekend. I got bored and instead of watching TV, went on a little wheel building spree. Five … Continue reading

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

Wheel size change

This gallery contains 4 photos.

Today, I’ve installed new IGUS rod end bearings and a older 20″ front wheel set with 28mm wide Sun Rhyno Lite rims, shod with skinny 28-406 Schwalbe Durano. The rear wheel got a 50-559 Kojak again. While handling is very … 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.

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

Building an ICE Vortex bastard?

A used ICE Vortex cruciform is coming my way (for those who don’t know the term, it’s the front part of the trike frame, reaching till about halfway under the seat). Since I’ve already got a spare ICE Sprint 26 … Continue reading
