Patrick from ICE Trikes has just posted on the Bentrider Online forum, offering a substantial discount against the price of an ICE VTX to the folk whose Windcheetahs are stuck in limbo.

A fantastic gesture IMHO. Smile

"Hi RPAnton,

We are very sorry to read about your plight with AVD. We cannot do anything to get your money back or anything like that, we are not in any way affiliated with AVD or Karl but we felt moved to do something for you and the other people who have been let down in this way by a member of the recumbent industry.

We would like to offer you and others in your situation a new ICE VTX at a significantly reduced price. If you are interested please send us over an email to sales@icetrikes.co and we will work out the details. 

Thanks, Patrick."

The first page of RPAnton's thread on Bentrider Online is linked below

Hi Mark ..........
Did you confirm pre-order all the key facts such as
your Height + Weight + X seam or and jean leg length.

ICE have made a very kind offer of a discounted brand new VTX to all affected WC customers .

You might have good reason to believe that the ICE VTX does not offer you the loading capacity that you require ??
But do you have the confirmed loading and  max capacity for your selected Windcheetah ?

I have  sold Speedy Windcheetahs when new in the 90's and later just *used versions .
* Bob Dixon decided he did not require dealers shortly after he took over 
Thinking factory direct was the way forward ??

I'am sure as an ICE UK Premier dealer
That ICE Falmouth would consider offering a more suitable trike such as the Sprint series 
if contacted to discuss options available .

Hope that helps you ..........Kevin D

Just to let you all know, after receiving the offer of a VTX from Patrick at ICE, I followed up with him.  He has been coordinating with my bike shop, The Hostel Shoppe in Wisconsin.  I just received a very generous quote on a VTX from ICE through my bike shop.  I have accepted the offer gratefully, and immediately (before anyone could have second thoughts Smile).  ICE is fantastic!  The Hostel Shoppe is as well!  I am happy.

That's great Russ.  I'm pleased for you. Smile

I hope that eventually you get some sort of recompense from Windcheetah too.

Thanks -- I've been in contact with Patrick at ICE, and I'll pursue it, though work and housework have been taking up all my time in the past few days.
