I am an uberclyde who barely fits within the weight limit of the sturdiest trikes. Specifically, I am looking at purchasing an ICE Adventure HD. However, I am not certain whether I should be looking at the suspension model or not. There are no dealers nearby, so I cannot just go for a test drive.
I have tried out one without suspension on city streets and it was OK. However, it was only a quick 30 minute test drive, so perhaps that opinion would change if I have to ride on bumpy roads for hours.
I hve no previous experience with trikes (but plenty with upright bikes). My riding is exclusively on paved roads, though not necessarily well maintained roads. Does a full suspension trike benefit me here?
My previous experience with suspension has been quite negative - it just bottoms out and I end up with no suspension anyway Of course I have never actually bothered to have the suspension adjusted - perhaps systems actually built for my weight can actually handle me.
My only goal is comfort - I do not care about speed.
So... suspension or not? What do you recommend?
