    So no suspension or hub gears, how hard will that be to ride? Is it just a cheap copy of ICE’s Big Fat? It’s true that you get what you pay for, so pay your money and take your choice.

  2. Howdy Alonzo,
    Azub is a top-flight cycling company, thus I suspect this new trike will be a fine rig for the backcountry, right up there with the ICE Full Fat. While I do not have the tech details at this time, it would seem logical that the gearing will be very capable of ultra low climbing speeds encountered in the outback. From what I’ve heard from riders of fat tire rigs, those huge tires provide a considerable amount of suspension simply from their design, and if running low air pressure as many off-road drivers do, this effect would increase. I believe ICE will be offering the Full Fat both suspended (extra weight of course) or unsuspended (meaning a dedicated shock absorbing mechanism beyond the softness of the tires themselves). I have been duly impressed by the Azub offerings I have studied in person during the past four years, and I bet this new one will uphold the company’s reputation for building strong and hard-core cycling solutions.
