ICE


Since starting Lightfoot in Montana in 1998, Rod Miner and company have designed over 50 distinct human-powered vehicles, including velomobiles, quadracycles, handcycles and recumbent bicycle models, both for their own line and contractually for other enterprises. We could call him Rod "Headroom" Miner for the abundance of ideas that float out of the Big Sky space in his head.


BIGFOOT

The Bigfoot fat tire recumbent bicycle is a true recumbent all-terrain bicycle. Its large-diameter wheels climb over logs, rocks and curbs. The wide tires float over soft substrates of mud, sand and packed snow. The long wheelbase spans bumps and barrow pits. The height of the seat lifts the rider above brush, cacti and buzzworms, and provides good slow speed balance when maneuvering. The wide soft tires are easy on vegetation and have minimal impact off-road.

RANGER

The world's first recumbent mountain bike. Don't let the lack of pavement stop your ride - take on gravel and dirt with the Ranger. Unexpectedly agile with stellar front end geometry connected to just the right handlebar system. An ultra tough road cruiser, or get lost on your favorite mountain tracks. The Ranger -- because 99% of the world is unpaved.

ATO / ATC

The versatile ATC (All Terrain Cycle) quadracycle. Four wheeled off-road capability and all-season stability, made possible by big wheels, an articulating frame and a wide stance that fits perfectly on any road or dirt track. We are suggesting going all the way with the super-fat-tire ATO (All Terrain Off-road) and optional two-wheel drive.

AZUB. From the Czech Republic, a recumbent company focused on expedition recumbent cycles. When Honza from AZUB visited us with 3 cycles, we were impressed with the high quality workmanship, beefy construction, especially in critical areas like the rear swing arm area where AZUB has tried as many as 22 variations in the design process of some models. A universal AZUB quality is their amazingly quiet drive train systems.

MAX

Our experience with the AZUB MAX was the solid feel of the bike from its stout design, excellent handing on pavement, and its capabilities off road from the 41" wheelbase giving heel strike free maneauverability not possible in other SWB recumbent designs. 26" and 24" wheel formats. Dual suspension options with real mountain bike forks.

The TRIcon is AZUB's top line trike that is first class in handling, beautiful construction and ultimate compact dimensions for travel and transport. A more rearward weight bias improves off road traction compared to other trikes.


AZUB's integrates a mountain bike rear suspension into the TRIcon. You can choose either the standard coil/oil or the oil / air. Overall strength is supported by the large diameter pivot axis along with the position of the shock absorber.


Ultra Touring worthy rear rack. Fits 2 pairs(4) of panniers.



RAMBLER FAT


Note: This was a limited run project and they sold out! If you have interest in a Ramber Fat, please call us, we have 2 available.

TerraTrike Introduces World’s First Production “Fat” Trike

The Rambler “Fat.” This limited edition “Fat” option features hand built Velocity wheels (using their tried-and-true Psycho rims) and 20x4-1/4 inch tires and tubes all around. The fat trike also only uses the Sturmey-Archer 8 speed internally geared hub to offer better ground clearance and the optimal amount of gears needed. The Rambler “Fat” is available now in very limited quantities paired with the Orange Rambler 8.

The Rambler “Fat” was developed to offer customers a better option for off-road and all-weather triking. The cushy balloon tires can be filled to 40 psi for smooth trails, or to as low as 10 psi to gain traction over rocky paths and dunes. TerraTrike recommends riders carry a mini-pump along to adjust the pressure and get the best performance across different types of terrain.

ALLROAD RAMBLER & SPORTSTER





 

 

After a season of real world excursions into the Michigan woods with 7 different configurations of wheel size combo's, Terratrike introduces the AllRoad Rambler and Sportster trikes.

The secret sauce turned out to be 24." What you see here are 507 format 24" wheels with a special double wall rim of extra width. This diameter rolls over the rough stuff easier and raises ground clearance to keep the obstacles well away from the frame. Tires were given equal scrutiny where the Schwalbe Land Rover 2" wide format rose to the top. Bite when you need it in the soft stuff, and a rib like center so when you're on the hard pack or pavement, your AllRoad rolls.

Spring 2014 availability.

CRANK IT FORWARD.

Rans' Crank Forward lineup continues to refine and expand. These bikes fuse elements of an upright bike with elements of the recumbent.  For off road the Alterra geometry is the most nimble and off road worthy. The Sequoia a more in the saddle idea but maintaining steering agility.

 

Here’s how the personalities break out:

CF2

New Alterra 29r w/ 2 5/8 x 2 1/4 downtube set up as Adventure Touring cycle.

 

ALTERRA 29r

Swinging to the opposite world, the Alterra 29 is an easy to enjoy mountain bike with in and out of the saddle capabilities without the wedgie butt. Compact drive cranks keep the ground clearance up, rolling over the rough stuff with ease.

7005 heat treated TIG welded frame is standard. Angletech Spec features top line SRAM XX, Velocity Blunt, and Avid Elixer components.

alterra seat

SEQUOIA

Rans had a 6'7 guy on staff. He needed a Crank Forward of his scale. The Sequoia was born. A Dynamik spec bike done for the big guy.

Longer rear oversize stays and oversize down tube deliver power without flex. Weight distribution improves for the tall rider, placing more weight toward the front. Curved down top tube makes it easier to get on and off, especially with a load.

 

This Sequoia in Frost Blue shown with options: Sykes Zebrawood fenders and bottle cage, Redline Mag Platform pedals, Rock Shox fork, B37 Bars, IRD Thumbie shifters, Avid BB7 disc brakes, Schwalbe Marathon Supreme 26 x 2 tires, Silicone Grips, and Rans Rack.

 

ADVENTURE

The Adventure series is suited for touring and is an excellent choice for cruising along your favorite trails. The Ergo Flow mesh seat sets the stage with ergonomic side bolsters, contoured bottom pad, and zipper sealed upper compartment. The Adventure comes in 3 series, Adventure is a hard tail with a folding frame. The Adventure RS adds rear suspension along with component upgrades and a broader gear range. The Adventure FS is full suspension, and the Adventure FS+ steps the components up one final level to SRAM TT500 bar end shifters, 9-34 10 speed cassette, hydraulic disc brakes, and standard disc parking brake. All details are shown side by side in our Specifications and Prices link below.

What brings a lot of people to the Adventure is the unique seat / crank relationship compared to other "tadpole" trikes. At 12", the seat height is at least 4.5" higher than many tadpole designs so getting in and out is easier. The crank position is lower than your hips as well, so if you always liked the tadpole format, but preferred the lower crank position, the Adventure is your trike.

Top line Schwalbe tires are included on the RS and FS trikes. An adjustable seat angle range of 44-49 degrees. Ground clearance is 7", so off road temptations along the way are an easy choice.

ICE Road Response rear suspension has 4" of travel and anti squat geometry for hill climbing integrity. Ice Road Response front suspension features a leading link design, 1.57" of travel with built in anti dive geometry for smoothness without drama.

Folded dimensions:

37.4-46.5" L x 31.3" W x 22.4 - 24.8" H depending on format.
