    Comments Off on ICE Trikes releases 25th anniversary special editions

    ICE Trikes celebrates its 25 year milestone with brand new colour editions, launched at Cycle-Con in Xenia, Ohio, 15-17 Sept, ready to pre-order.

    To celebrate this major anniversary, the brand have created beautiful new 25-year Special Editions that include new matching accessories. The new ‘ICE Cream’ colour scheme will be available soon on all folding trikes for a limited time. All 25-year anniversary trikes will come with a new matching mini seat-pod storage bag with a very snazzy magnetic easy-release buckle and 25-year colour detailing, a handy top-tube bag and ICE water bottle.

    The company shared, “Like cold drinks on a sunny day, we anticipate the new contemporary and classic British design-inspired ‘ICE Cream’ colours will be very popular.”, whilst encouraging customers to “be first in the queue, and reserve your build slot for a trike model of your choice to be delivered to your local dealer as soon as we start shipping. We anticipate shipping will begin in late October.”

    ICE Trikes is also currently seeking customer feedback with an optional survey, closing October 2 2023.

    Inspired Cycle Engineering (ICE Trikes) has been producing industry leading three wheel recumbent trikes in Falmouth, England since 1999. It can trace its history back to the original Trice first produced in 1986. This hard earned experience coupled with the sheer pleasure of developing unique recumbents drives ICE Trikes on to continually refine its designs and hone the comfort and performance of each machine.

  2. Alligt launches innovative front chainwheel

    Leave a Comment

    Alligt has made a new, lightweight 70 teeth chainwheel with a fixed protective edge on both sides. It is at least 20% lighter than Alligt’s other variants. So far, the chain wheels had been milled from one piece of 15 mm thick aluminium. Alligt has now reviewed that process and was able to considerably improve it. The new chainwheel has been made of one injection-moulded piece of high-quality plastic. This is an innovation in the sense that never before a chainwheel has been produced with this technique in the (recumbent) bicycle business. It is specially designed for recumbents and fast velomobiles with a 20″ rear wheel.

    Due to the increasing use of cassettes with ever more gears and a bigger range, the need for front gears has decreased. Consequently, a growing variety of vehicles have only one chainwheel in the front. Therefore, a derailleur that guides the chain is no longer needed, whilst the chain can come off more easily. Hence the increased need for two fixed protective edges on the chain wheel.

    The consumer price of the new Alligt chainwheel is € 120. The plastic injection-moulded chain wheel with integrated double protective edge is available to be fixed on the crank with a 110 and 130 mm pitch circle with 5 holes as well as for the Bafang mid-engine with 60 mm pitch circle with 5 holes.

    LEVA-EU member Alligt is a Dutch specialist producer of component parts for recumbent bikes and velomobiles as well as parts (wheels and idlers) for cargo bikes. Alligt has unparalleled know how of velomobiles.
