    Hey now that’s cheating, an old style 20″ wheeled ICE ‘T’ can be fitted out with a larger rear wheel, like 26″ and will then take a 2,4″ rear tyre. Then fit 20″ BMX tyres to the front and you’ve got a mini version of the Full Fat beasty. Set up this way the old ‘T’ may not match the Full Fat on larger rocky terrain or in deep sand but it will give you a run for your money on any other surfaces. My much modified ‘T’ is 7 years old and still going strong; 27 thumb shifter gears plus reverse and free air-con’.

    Greetings Alonzo,
    Steve mentioned to me at the end of August that if I posted any material comparing an ICE T trike to a ICE Full Fat trike that it might prompt a response from a chap in England named Alonzo. So, I did some snooping around on the website and discovered that he had posted some images of your ICE trike with beefier tires on it. I agree with you that it really looks quite tough. – Adam

    For readers who would enjoy seeing this, below is additional source material: (a post Steve did this past summer) (scroll way down once on page)
    And here is the trike as described:

    Good old Steve stirring things up as per usual. Since that photo was taken I’ve made mudguards/fenders for both front and rear wheels, all painted in matt black. Unfortunately I haven’t persuaded my son to go with me to ride the forest tracks again. My crazy actions last time scared him too much as I had all three wheels drifting sideways on the bends at close on 30mph. Anyone interested in a quick spin around Grizedale?
