ICE 2014 VTX (Vortex)



Quote:
Based on the pedigree of the ICE Vortex and building on ICEs design heritage, the ICE VTX represents the epitome of specialist design, incorporating decades of technical knowledge culminating in a new breed of recumbent trike. Sleek, lean and finely tuned, the ICE VTX delivers superior performance, speed, and precise handling to even the most exacting rider.

A speed-optimised frame featuring a hydro-formed back-end and unique lightweight boom ensures a ride with stiffness and optimal power transfer whilst remaining lightweight. A one piece handlebar and specific cruciform geometry ensure nimble and stable handling at high speed, providing responsive feedback and enabling rider confidence even in the most extreme circumstances.
More in the press release.

Would really love one of these, but must get Sinner Bikes Mango first

My Tour Easy is the lowly budget SUN made LE model, reviewed favorably on this forum, I saved a garage queen, like new, 50 miles if that on the bike, $1000
Sold my Sun EZ-1 for more than I paid for it, bringing my cost on the Tour Easy down to about $440

I can only Imagine how nice the GRR is to ride,,, I cannot Imagine the Stratus being anywhere near as nice, to me IMO, My LE model is perfect..

Just sayin
,
,
I added an Avid BB-7 on the back and a fatter rear tire, not in this pic tho,, I will never sell this Bike.
