New ICE Sprint 26 FS Pictures

ICE's new gunmetal grey color and redesigned logo is a work of art. ICE has really stepped up their came. I took a bunch of pictures while she is still clean and free of my add ons, like mirrors, lights, bottle cages under the seat and a FastBack SeatBack bag behind the carbon fiber seat. Although I already did add a carbon fiber bottle cage on the boom. 

I'll have more to say after I take a few rides. My goal is to have the fasted suspended trike possible. 

The two bars coming off the handlebars are the mirror mounts.

Shimano 6800 Ultegra pedals on a FSA triple 52/26 carbon fiber crank. I like the Shimano pedals because they can be adjusted to have minimal play to no play with cleat selection. The release tension can also be easily adjusted on the pedal. 

Rear suspension elastomers. Cool new colors. No more bright yellow and other neon colors to take away from the look of this beautiful trike. 

Front suspension.

Rock solid but very light rack for those times when I want to carry a little bit more. Attaches easily to the frame with only two bolts.

Headed Home with ICE

Carrie and I took a three and a half hour drive today to Bent Up Cycles to pick up my new ICE 26 Sprint. It's folded up and easily loaded into Carrie's C-Max. So nice to have a folder. It'll be so easy to take on trips. More picks and comments to follow.

Ready for another three and a half hour drive to get home. Looking forward to unloading my new ride.
Almost home, passing Pismo Beach.

ICE Sprint X 26 FS Ordered

A new trike to keep my 700 company.
I finally popped on ordering a ICE Sprint X 26 Full Suspension.
For me to be able to explore all the roads along the Central Coast I need
a full suspension option. There are some roads where the 700 is simply
not meant to go. More on why I opted for the ICE Sprint X 26 later.

Kinda like this one but in the new dull gray color. Also skinnier tires planned.
