Oddly, the cost of my two trikes was roughly the same. My first was a Trice QNT purchased directly from Inspired Cycle Engineering. My second, received just last month, is a Sprint 26 with slightly tweaked gearing. That too was purchased directly from ICE. They are the same 'middle child' of ICE's trikes between the higher, more upright touring and the low, laid back speed demon.

When I started looking into the prices of ICE's updated trikes, I was quite surprised to see the prices hadn't changed much between 2006 and 2012, particularly with the redesign of their models. I think it was the only reason my husband agreed to replace my beloved Trice. Well, that and the fact that if I had a machine with the derailleur high enough that it wouldn't get banged around on chunks of ice and ruts, I'd be able to take the dog for runs even in the winter.
