    Posted: 08 June 2017 at 11:36am
Trice
no longer makes its line of "custom" trikes, and when they were
available they cost a LOT of money ($7450 in America in 2006) - so this
is quite a rare machine. The Micro is described on the ICE history pages
as "the lowest, most aerodynamic Trice ever built" and in reviews as
one of the fastest trikes made. It is nevertheless a versatile machine -
Micros have been ridden successfully in BHPC races and have completed
many UK Audax events, including London-Edinburgh-London.<br id="yiv1704528819yui_3_16_0_ym19_1_1465467149764_3689">
<br id="yiv1704528819yui_3_16_0_ym19_1_1465467149764_3690">This example
has been meticulously maintained and always kept indoors. Its current
lady owner saved it for sunny days, so it is in excellent condition. It
has now been replaced by a less sporty electrically-assisted trike, and
is much too nice to sit unused so is for sale.<br id="yiv1704528819yui_3_16_0_ym19_1_1465467149764_3693">

Hi there. Three questions: 1) what size rider can the bike accommodate? 2) is the price fixed or are you open to offers? 3) where are you located? Many thanks.

I'm sending a PM with e-mail address and phone number.

The trike is in Shrewsbury. Price is already very low for this deluxe model, but might be negotiable a little.

It is currently set up for me - height 167cm, saddle height on an upright 68cm. There is scope for extending the boom to fit a taller person, but I don't know offhand how much extension is available. It could also be made shorter. We can discuss your needs and set it up for you if you would like a test ride.

Hi Judith, can I assume that the trike is now sold?

Hi Judith, I am genuinely looking for a trike, however I am a complete newcomer to the world of trikes and aren't able to make a snap judgement about suitability like other more experienced individuals on the site. But from your description and included photos I am very interested in the trice micro as advertised. My only real concern is whether it is big enough in terms of boom extension and possibly seat size. I am about 5'8" tall with relatively short legs and fairly slim build, so maybe that isn't a problem. I suppose the obvious solution would be to take a look at it, although how easy that is depends on our respective locations. I live in a place called Beverley in Yorkshire. In the meantime perhaps we could have a quick chat about it. My number is 07817442016 or I could call you if that's preferable.
