Learn more about ICE recumbent trikes at http://www.icetrikes.co This instalment of the ICE Tech Guide contains everything you need to know to adjust and fit your handle bars, boom and seat correctly. Adjusting the seat angle is very easy. Undo the quick release lever located behind the seat to release the seat bracket. Lift the bracket off the quick release. To choose a slot turn the bracket like this, then place the bracket back over the quick release and tighten. Try some different seat positions to find the angle that feels most comfortable. Once you've ridden your trike for a while you may want to change the recline angle. Always set the angle to suit you - there is no right or wrong. Now you can set the handlebar position. The handlebars can be tilted forwards and backwards, and can be made wider or narrower. To adjust the handlebars undo the quick release levers which are located under the seat. Sit on the trike and adjust the handlebars so that they feel comfortable then tighten the two quick release levers. Now you can adjust your boom length. The boom is the front part of the frame on your trike. This slides in and out of the main frame to give a huge range of leg length adjustment. The boom has a measurement guide etched into one side. This gives you a reference when you adjust the boom length. Loosen the frame clamp bolts with a five-millimeter hex key. Adjust the boom length by pulling or pushing. Sit comfortably in your seat. Make sure your body is pressed firmly into the base of the seat. Don't stretch or slouch. Place your heel on the pedal at its furthest position. Now adjust the boom until your heel is against the pedal and you're leg is straight. When the boom is the correct length, twisted so the guide lines up with the sticker on the frame, tighten the bolts to lock the boom in place. Now put your feet on the pedals and turn the cranks. Your legs should extend fully without your knees locking or your feet pointing. Take your trike for a short ride to see how it feels. You may need to make some fine adjustments to make your trike as comfortable as possible.

Learn more about ICE recumbent trikes at http://www.icetrikes.co Over Christmas 2013 a British woman will attempt to become the first person to cycle to the South Pole. Racing over 400 miles from the edge of the Antarctic continent Maria Lijerstam hopes to beat two other male contenders to claim the world record. Maria, aged 35, will face savage conditions with temperatures as low as -35°C and wind speeds up to 50 miles per hour. She will have to overcome dangerous obstacles such as crevasses, shifting ice shelves, glaciers and snowstorms. This audacious challenge has been attempted before by riders on standard winter bikes known as Fat Bikes, but none have yet succeeded. After two years research Maria has taken a radical new approach that could help win her the title and re-define the future of polar expeditions. "Fat Bikes fail because they get blown over in the high winds, or can't ride fast enough through the snow to stay upright. I knew I needed something that would overcome these limitations." said Maria, who runs Multisports Wales. Maria will ride an extraordinary polar cycle designed specifically for the challenge by the aptly named ICE Trikes, based in Falmouth, UK. The custom-made machine is a recumbent trike, which is stable and aerodynamic. Riding in the recumbent position Maria can focus her energy on progressing through the gale-force winds and hazardous terrain. "The trike is amazing. It's completely stable, even in extreme winds and I can take on long steep hills that I'd never be able to climb on a bike" said Maria. The design is based on a standard ICE Sprint recumbent trike, with modifications to ensure it can tackle the rigorous challenge ahead. The frame is made from an aircraft grade steel selected for it's strength and fatigue resistance. It is fitted with 4.5 inch wide snow tyres for unsurpassed traction and float over snow and ice. The gears are effectively twice as easy as a standard mountain bike, which will allow Maria to climb 1-in-3 gradients. "This is a beast of a trike. It's very special and there's nothing else like it in the world. Our standard trikes are highly sophisticated and they retail from £2000. Maria's trike would cost in the region of £20,000" said Chris Parker, director of ICE Trikes and designer of Maria's polar trike. Maria's preparation has included training and equipment testing in Siberia, Norway and Iceland. To replicate the severe cold of Antarctica she has endured a day cycling in an industrial freezer -- much to the surprise of factory workers who continued to stack shelves with frozen food. Maria has identified a route to the South Pole virtually untested by polar explorers. She will start her bid for the world record by climbing the Leverett Glacier before heading due south for the South Pole some 400 miles ahead. The route she will take is used by American scientists based at the McMurdo Research Station on the Ross Ice Shelf to transport fuel to the South Pole. The radical approach of using a recumbent trike on a new route could re-define the future of polar expeditions. Maria predicts that extreme tourism companies will offer trike expeditions in the near future. "In a few years' time companies who now run polar ski tours will also offer polar trike tours" said Maria. As manager of a company that organises adventure races and training, Maria knows the industry well. She is accustomed to extreme sports and in 2012 came second in the Black Ice Race -- a 400 mile winter cycle along the entire length of Lake Baikal in Siberia. Maria is now well and truly prepared to take on the challenge ahead. "I have met Maria, seen the polar cycle and spent time with her on her training trip in Iceland. I am convinced she has a very good chance of making it" said Emil Grimmsson, CEO of Arctic Trucks who will support Maria during her world record attempt. ITV will be broadcasting Maria's story in a documentary in January 2014 but in meantime you can watch the drama unfold live on her website http://www.whiteicecycle.com Visit the ICE Trikes channel for more great videos: http://www.youtube.com/icetrikes Subscribe to receive new videos in your feed: http://owl.y/qk1Y6

Learn more about ICE recumbent trikes at: http://www.icetrikes.co The ICE Compact Flat Twist (C.F.T) fold on an ICE Adventure 26". The fold is standard on all ICE trikes. The folding is based around a lightweight heat treated aluminium hinge on the main frame. This allows the rear of the trike to pivot so that the rear wheel fits snugly between the front wheels. To fold, you simply release the seat by unscrewing the retention knobs and a quick release lever, once this has been done the handlebars are folded by loosening a quick release lever, from here it's just a quick release on the main frame and you're ready to go. Folding the trike is normally completed in well under 30 seconds.The time it takes here in the film is really how long it takes. The fold has been designed to work with ICE accessories such as our racks and our Performance Tailbox. Whether it's putting the trike in the back of the car to visit a local trail or loading it onto a small airplane for the tour of your life, the ICE C.F.T fold provides the convenience and portability you need.

Chris Parker from ICE Trikes explains how he designed and built a recumbent trike capable of being cycled across Antarctica to the South Pole. The cycle needed to withstand temperatures of -30 degrees Celsius, and be capable of traversing ice, snow and the steep gradients of the Transantarctic Mountains via the Leverret Glacier. The expedition was self-supported, with the rider carrying necessary equipment and supplies for up to 20 days riding. In December 2013 Maria Leijerstam, from Team White Ice Cycle, used the trike in her world-record attempt to cycle across Antarctica to the South Pole. After 10 days, 14 hours and 56 minutes, Maria reached her destination, becoming the first person to cycle across Antarctica to the South Pole. Explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes said "This was an extraordinary polar journey" Visit the ICE Trikes channel for more great videos: http://www.youtube.com/icetrikes Subscribe to receive new videos in your feed: http://.owl.y/qk1Y6

Derek and I took our Catrikes out for a hill climbing ride in Anaheim Hills. We spotted a few new trike riders on the trail on the way to the hills... one of them several times! Hills are your friends... because you get to go really fast down the other side.
