    I haven't got either trike, but just curious. Apart from God like thighs and a couple of titanium bolts what would you need to blast past a Ice Sprint on a Pashley PDQ3?
     
  2. A large hill, and a lot of courage.

    Has anyone investigated the effect of the Gofasterstripe© ?

    Adds eight mph to your average speed.

    Plus another five if you have nice looking tyres.

    Ice trike owners should fit whip Ariel's they are way cooler than flag poles.

    Firstly, I'd need a Pashley PDQ3.
    Then I'd need a run up. 1400kms would do it. Less if the Ice Sprint is stationary. :biggrin:

    Removal of the sprints left wheel would only even things out. But that might create brake steer.

    By the time you'd finished your run-up, you'd have nothing left for the overtake.

    Red paint?

    Losing the extra wheel on the PDQ3 would help a lot. My PDQ bike was a pretty nippy little thing.

    That's strange - my PDQ was very slow.....now I come to think about it all my bicycles and tricycles have been very slow - where should I buy a fast one from?

    Your PDQ was slower when I had it!
    I only rode it a few times. I was a bit scared of it.

    Late entry .......
    Take the Ice Cream freezer cabinet off the trike to reduce weight and improve the windflow by dropping the sunshade
    Did you say the Pashley was a number 3 or 33 or 99 with a flake ?
    My UK record top speed with a Pashley 33 downhill was 28 mph with both legs bracing the box and one hand clutching the extra large brake lever in the middle and still tugging on the rod pull brake .....all with little or no effect .
    Talk about the runaway train :eek:
    I still hire them out ....only for static shows and fetes and weddings .
    Still think the ICE Sprint is "cooler" over the PDQ 3 "Daddy long legs " and before you ask ....yes .....I sell both :cheers:
