Featured Recumbent Trike: ICE Full Fat

Make easy work of challenging terrain with ICE's Full Fat recumbent trike. This expedition-tough rig rolls over mud, sand, snow, and rough trail, giving you greater freedom to ride wherever, whenever. Built of chromoly steel and 7005 aluminum, the Full Fat is stiff and durable. The ergonomic seat positions you for comfort, pedaling efficiency, and stability, enabling all-day excursions without back, neck, or hip pain. The 100mm of rear wheel suspension also helps out. And it's easy to transport, because the Full Fat folds for easy storage and transportation.

Buyer's Guide to Car Racks

One of the most frequent questions we get here at Basically Bicycles is “How do I put that recumbent bike on my car?” Although most recumbent bikes will fit on traditional style racks, some racks are better suited for recumbent bikes than others. We carry many racks that are well-suited for recumbent bicycles and trikes. 

Check out the Basically Bicycles buyer's guide to car racks for an overview of rack types and tips on how you can take your recumbent bike or trike with you.
