ICE Adventure HD 26 Retired Demo - $2899

The ICE Adventure has long been one of our more popular trikes in the store.  The HD version is a bit wider and sturdier, for riders up to 325 pounds, and designed for a wide range of uses, including loaded touring and trails.  27 speeds, 90mm drum brakes, Schwalbe Big Apple tires, and lots of ground clearance makes this a really versatile trike.  On top of that, it folds for easier transportation and storage!  New this trike would cost about $3500, and this one has only been ridden on test rides near the shop.

Kidz Tandem - $999

A great family bike, the Kidz Tandem puts your youngster in front of the adult, who steers, shifts, and brakes from behind.  That way you can keep an eye on the younger rider while riding, and it's easier to communicate with them.  This is an older one, but very well cared for, and decked out with an array of bells, horns, streamers and a child seat.  New these are selling for $2100, so here's a good one for less than half that.

Barcroft Columbia Tandem - NOT AT STORE - $2500

A compact high performance recumbent tandem, purchased in 2003. The short size makes the bike more nimble and easier to transport on a standard car rack than other recumbent tandems. It can make a U-turn inside a 12-foot circle! Front captain position is similar to a short wheelbase recumbent. Rear stoker position is similar to a long wheelbase recumbent. Very comfortable.

ICE Trice QNT - $2699

An older but very nice ICE trike, from back when they sold them under the Trice name.  The Q-series had the lower slung frame similar to the current Sprint series, and NT means Narrow Track, where the distance between the front wheels is a bit narrower than the standard (27" instead of 31").  This comes in handy when you're dealing with going in and out of conventional doors, or on trails with bollards.  A really nice riding trike!
