    Oooh, forgot to post here. I bought the member formerly known as Trikeman's fully suspended ICE Trice Q a few months back. Only covered 100 miles on it so far for various reasons, but I love the thing and it's a keeper.

    A new (to me) n+0.75, care of eBay.

    25% discount for omitting the handlebars.

    I love the way we grin when riding a recumbent. Good video. ^_^

    Nice bike. Speed and distance are very different masters to reconcile, so its testament to the good design of the Encore that it'll do both.

    If you're looking for a removable, (relatively) affordable, and flexible way of adding more luggage without impacting weight and drag, I had some wins with Ortlieb bike packing accessory packs this summer. If you're moderately handy with a needle and thread, you can deploy them as side pods (per below). 7 Litres for the pair, at about 400g all in. This configuration gave me the confidence to tackle longer distances and the freedom to bring drinks, snacks and clothing :smile:

    Oooooh ! A pair of Schlitters :wub::wub::smooch:

    Were I 10 years younger ... :cry: - but I was talking to LaidBack Dave G t'other day and he was saying all is not very well in Schlitter-world right now ... :sad: A Watch-this-space situation. :unsure:

    That doesn't sound good. Bacchetta have expanded their range of carbon bikes since the Encore was launched and they are a reliable brand.

    My understanding was that it was more to do with the European manufacturer of Schlitter doing it all themselves, rather than having the US part ... or something. My impression was that Schlitter bikes will still be available but maybe under a different name ???
