Description

This listing is for an ice-cream Trike WITH pedal assist electric motor to help with riding.

We have been selling Ice Cream Trikes for many years and they work great!

They have a combined fridge/freezer which can be used to sell ice cold drinks when the unit is set as a fridge, or when set as a freezer, it can be used for ice cream, or frozen products like shaved ice etc.

The base is a factory modified cargo trike with the freezer mounted on the front and a tall wooden box  on the rear, closest to the rider.

The wooden box is made so you can install a sink or any other accessories that you wish. At the bottom of the wooden box is the battery. The battery is a 12 V AGM deep cycle battery of 50 amp hours. This is enough to run the fridge/freezer for up to 8 hours when away from a power point.

This will give you many hours of complete autonomous operations down on the beach, the markets or anywhere else you may be going. When you are back to normal power, just plug the unit in and it will run the fridge/freezer and recharge the battery at the same time.

These Ice Cream Trikes are supplied in white. The freezer unit has been manufactured to be covered in self-adhesive signage to display your products, pricing etc.

When you open the fridge/freezer lid there are sliding glass drawers, so people can view your products without letting all the cold air out.

Easy to ride and maintain, our ice cream trikes even come with a large umbrella to keep you in the shade when set up and selling.

Electric Pedal Assist Details

  • Australian legal 250 w motor, 36 Volt 10.4 AH (374.4Wh) battery.

Note: it is our recommendation that the minimum rider height for this tricycle is 5’2″  (155cm) tall.

Specifications Ice Cream Tricycles

These tricycles are specifically designed for efficiently running a fridge/freezer in a typical mobile vending setting. The tricycle frame is robust, constructed from heavy-duty steel.

Each unit is equipped with a front-mounted fridge/freezer and a wooden box at the rear, capable of accommodating a cash drawer, battery, charging cables, and any other necessary items. Additionally, a large black umbrella is included, providing an ideal surface for signwriting.

The versions available include standard pedal and Electric Pedal Assist, both featuring a standard 7-gear setup for easy operation.

It’s important to note that the fridge/freezer can only operate in one mode at a time. For instance, if you’re selling drinks, the units should be set just above freezing. On the other hand, selling ice creams requires setting the unit to -18°C or below. The freezer reaches the desired temperature in less than 2 hours. Both versions come with a 12V AGM deep cycle battery of 50 AH, capable of running the fridge/freezer for up to 6-8 hours without access to mains electricity.

It is recommended to consider upgrading to a higher-capacity lithium battery, especially if the freezer is continuously opening or if operating in extremely hot environments. This provides longer running time with less weight, eliminating concerns about the battery running out during the day and risking product loss.

All units are supplied in white, ready to be customised with stickers for business promotion.

While operating the ice cream tricycle is generally straightforward, it is advisable to opt for the electric assist version if your route includes hills or if you are carrying more than 60 kg of product.

Setting itself apart, the Trike Bike showcases an exceptional weight-bearing capacity, supporting riders up to 150 kgs. This remarkable strength ensures riders of all sizes can confidently set out on their adventures with a harmonious blend of comfort and stability.

We understand that personal comfort preferences vary, which is why our trikes feature wide and well-padded seats. These seats provide exceptional support and comfort, catering to individuals who are overweight, elderly, or find conventional bicycle seats too narrow.

Moreover, we have considered the needs of riders with restricted leg movement. Our trikes are designed with a low frame step-over height, facilitating easy mounting, and dismounting, ensuring a hassle-free riding experience.

The seating position on our trikes is designed for maximum comfort. The forward crank position and nearly vertical seating position minimise strain on your arms, allowing you to enjoy your ride without discomfort.

To further enhance your overall comfort, all our trikes come with adjustable seat and handlebar heights. This feature enables you to customise the fit according to your preferences, ensuring the perfect riding position for your body. Additionally, we have incorporated super soft and comfortable handgrips, guaranteeing a pleasant and enjoyable riding experience.

Adding to its versatility, the Trike Bike features expansive front and rear baskets, offering generous storage space. Whether commuting to work, running errands, or enjoying a leisurely ride, these baskets provide convenient options for stowing your belongings. The strategically positioned rear basket ensures a seamless experience when transporting larger or bulkier items.

Furthermore, the Trike Bike excels in its cargo-carrying prowess, accommodating approximately 50 kg of cargo. A perfect choice for those relying on their bicycles to transport goods or equipment, it delivers a reliable and efficient solution for various purposes.

One of the standout advantages of the Trike Bike is its unwavering stability, even under full load. In contrast to traditional bicycles that may waver under heavy loads, the Trike Bike maintains impeccable balance, eliminating the risk of toppling over. This inherent stability not only guarantees a smooth and secure riding experience but also enhances the safety of both the rider and their cargo.

Whether you’re a professional utilising the Trike Bike for business or an individual in search of a dependable and versatile mode of transportation and exercise, the Trike Bike epitomises innovation and practicality. Unleash the full potential of your rides with the Trike Bike, where robust carrying capacity meets unmatched comfort and stability, providing a truly reliable and enjoyable Tricycling experience.

Safety

Your safety is our utmost priority, and our Trike Bikes are designed to provide unparalleled protection in countless ways.

With the added stability of a third wheel, Trike Bikes are an excellent choice for various individuals, including the elderly, people with disabilities or balance issues, mothers with young children, and those who need to transport loads such as groceries or tools on a worksite. In the event of any unexpected situation, simply apply the brakes, and your Trike Bike will gradually come to a halt, perfectly balanced on all three wheels.

We understand the importance of visibility on the road, which is why we offer a wide selection of Trike Bikes in colors that stand out to other road users. Every Trike Bike comes equipped with yellow wheel reflectors on all three wheels, yellow reflectors on the front and back of the pedals, a white reflector on the front handlebars, two rear red reflectors on the mudguards, an LED headlight and on some models a tail light with brake light. The headlight not only illuminates the night but also serves as a crucial visual alert during daytime rides, as it can be set to flash on and off continuously.

To protect your clothing from getting entangled in the chain and sprocket, all Trike Bikes are fitted with a chain cover. Additionally, a bell is included to alert pedestrians, and one of the most vital features of your Trike Bike are the disk brakes, these provide exceptional stopping power even when carrying a heavy load or in an emergency.

Our Trike Bikes are renowned for their exceptional build quality, guaranteeing reliability. The frames are crafted from high-quality aluminum and most models come with a lifetime frame warranty, guaranteeing long-lasting durability. In our electric models, the front forks are equipped with suspension, enhancing the overall riding experience.

Featuring alloy wheels and general purpose tires, our Trike Bikes offer remarkable tracking and grip on all surfaces. The larger wheels provide an added advantage, as they are less prone to damage from roadway obstacles compared to smaller tires.

The Trike Bike boasts an aluminum three-piece crank and quality bottom bracket, highlighting our on-going commitment to quality craftsmanship. Premium bearings are utilised throughout the construction, ensuring smooth, efficient and lasting performance. Importantly, all three wheels are equipped with mudguards to keep you dry, even in wet conditions. The rear mudguards are reinforced with special supports, ensuring their durability and strength for many years of ownership.

Gears

Trike Bikes come equipped with genuine Shimano 6-speed gears, ensuring a smooth pedaling experience on both flat terrain and hills. Our latest models feature the advanced Shimano Tourney Smart Shift, allowing effortless gear changes for an enhanced riding experience.

Try to avoid pedal tricycles with just a single gear. While a single gear may suffice for perfectly flat surfaces, it falls short when faced with hills or the desire to ride faster or carry additional luggage. To fully enjoy the versatility of your Trike Bike, multiple gears are essential.

Unlike traditional bicycles, Trike Bikes are inherently heavier due to their unique design. However, our specially designed first and second gear ratios are intentionally lower, making uphill rides a breeze. With this thoughtfully crafted gear setup, conquering inclines becomes easier and more enjoyable.

*  Please note that some of our electric models may have a single-speed configuration, as they rely on the power of the electric motor for effortless movement.

Carrying Capacity

The Trike Bike offers a significant advantage in terms of carrying capacity.

With the ability to support riders weighing up to 150 kgs, equipped with spacious front and rear baskets, and a luggage carrying capacity of approximately 50 kg, the Trike Bike becomes a reliable workhorse capable of handling various loads.

Unlike a regular bicycle, the Trike Bike remains stable even when loaded with items, eliminating the risk of toppling over.

Warranty

Trike Bike products carry a full 12 month warranty against manufacturing defects and faults for residential use and a 3 month warranty for commercial use unless specified otherwise.

Shipping Information

Every Trike Bike Tricycle is meticulously wrapped in bubble wrap, providing secure individual packaging to minimise the risk of shipping damage.

While the likelihood is low, there may be instances of slight damage or scratches to parts upon arrival, particularly when shipping to remote locations in outback areas with rough roads and frequent handling of packages.

Despite the use of robust 7 or 10 layer cardboard boxes and thorough bubble wrap protection, occasional damage or scratches may still occur. To mitigate potential issues, insurance is available during the checkout process. Insurance is especially recommended for orders to remote areas.

When placing an order for your Trike Bike, please bear in mind the possibility of shipping-related challenges. While we make every effort to assist in case of damage, it’s important to note that we are not liable for shipping-related damages.

If you do not agree with this shipping statement and you opt for delivery without insurance, then we kindly request that you refrain from placing an order if a small scratch is upsetting.

To be absolutely clear, if you decide not to opt for insurance coverage, we will not be held responsible for any damage or even complete loss in the event of any mishap. Once a package leaves our business we have no control over its handling or delivery and therefore no responsibility for damage or loss. We strongly recommend that each delivery carries shipping insurance as required.

However, if you have chosen insurance coverage, we will extend our assistance to meet the full coverage requirements.

Additionally, please note that Electric Trike Bike products are classified as dangerous goods, which can occasionally lead to short shipping delays due to special handling.

Delivery Options

1. Express Courier Delivery
This is the most common choice for customers. Your Trike Bike will be delivered by courier in two boxes – one large box and a second smaller box. The Trike Bike comes partially assembled for your convenience, but most models will require at least 1 to 2 hours to complete assembly for the average person.

2. Click & Collect Boxed from Varsity Lakes QLD
If you prefer to save on delivery charges, you can choose to pick up the boxed Trike Bike yourself. Simply drop by with a normal-sized car, and we’ll have it ready for you to collect.

3. Click & Collect Assembled & Ready to Ride from Varsity Lakes QLD
If you lack the skills or time to assemble the Trike Bike, don’t worry!

Our skilled mechanics can handle that for you. For a fee of just $125 (applies to the original, Standard Pedal or Electric Trikes), we will assemble, test ride, and fine-tune your Trike Bike to ensure years of enjoyable rides.  (some tricyles cost more for assembly)
Please note: that if you opt for an assembled Trike Bike, you’ll need a ute, van or trailer for pickup as they are too large to fit into an SUV type vehicle.

Why an Electric Tricycle ?

If you’re considering a new mode of transportation, an electric tricycle might be the perfect choice for you. Not only does it provide a unique and enjoyable way to get around, but it also comes with a variety of benefits that other vehicles simply can’t offer.

Firstly, riding an electric tricycle provides a low-impact form of exercise. It can be a great way to improve your physical fitness, without putting too much strain on your joints. Plus, the convenience of having a motor means you can take it easy on hills and tough terrain.

Secondly, an electric tricycle is incredibly comfortable. The upright seating position and wide handlebars allow for a relaxed and enjoyable ride. You won’t have to worry about hunching over or feeling cramped, like you might on a traditional bicycle or scooter.

Finally, an electric tricycle is a convenient and affordable mode of transportation. Unlike cars, there are no expensive maintenance or running costs to worry about. You won’t have to sit in traffic or search for a parking spot when you reach your destination. And, unlike motorcycles, you won’t need a motorcycle license or protective clothing to ride it.

All in all, an electric tricycle is a smart choice for anyone looking for a convenient, comfortable, and affordable way to get around. It’s especially useful for older riders who may struggle with traditional bicycles, and those who need to carry a lot of luggage. With no license or registration required, and a minimal cost of only $1.00 to travel 100 km, an electric tricycle is a practical and fun solution for all kinds of transportation needs. Just make sure to wear a bicycle helmet for safety!

Nerd Statistics

Fuel prices are rocketing, the public is looking for cheaper forms of transportation and we are getting asked almost daily…… how much does it cost to charge and operate an electric Trike Bike Tricycle?

The calculations are easy, and the example is made using the peak electricity price in Queensland of $0.33 per kWh.  Your rate may/will vary depending on your location

We need to work out the cost of charging a typical Trike Bike battery.

Trike Bike batteries are normally 36V and 10 AH capacity, to convert this to watt hours the calculation is 36 × 10 = 360 watt hours. You then divide by 1000 to get the kilowatt hours so 360 ÷ 1000 = 0.36 kWh

To work out how much a complete charge will cost, we multiply the battery capacity in kilowatt hours by the electricity rate, 0.36 × 0.33 = $0.118800 or if we round this off it costs just $0.12 to recharge the battery using the peak electricity rate and around $0.07 cents to charge the battery at off-peak rates.

The average range for a Trike Bike utilising pedal assistance is 40 km. This means you can travel up to 40 km for around $0.12. or, to break it down even further it will cost you 0.002970 cents per kilometre to travel on the Trike Bike….

Travel to the shops and back, doing about 5 kms in distance will only cost 1.5 cents!  Pretty cheap!

Federal Regulations Electric Devices

Electric Tricycle rules.

An electric tricycle, also known as an e-bike/e-trike, is a type of vehicle and can be assisted by power when riding.

You can ride an electric trike on all roads and paths, even where bicycles are prohibited. When riding, you have rights and responsibilities just like all road users.

You must follow the normal bicycle road rules and obey the general road rules.

You don’t need a licence to ride an electric tricycle, and they don’t need registration or compulsory third-party insurance.

Riding an electric tricycle

You propel an electric tricycle through pedaling with assistance from the electric motor. The electric motor is used to help you maintain speed while riding, and may be helpful when riding uphill or against the wind.

At speeds up to 6km/h, the electric motor can operate without you pedaling. The electric motor will help you when you first take off.

At speeds above 6km/h, you must pedal to keep the bicycle moving with the motor providing pedal-assist only.

When you reach a speed of 25km/h the motor must stop operating (cut out) and you need to pedal to stay above 25km/h like a normal tricycle.

Source of power

For an electric tricycle to be legally used on the road, it must have an electric motor and conform to the following:

A pedalec, is a tricycle with an electric motor capable of generating up to 250* watts of power, but the motor cuts out at 25km/h and the pedals must be used to keep the motor operating. Pedalecs must comply with the European Standard for Power Assisted Pedal Cycles (EN15194) and must have a permanent marking on it that shows it complies with this standard.

Non-compliant electric tricycles

Your motorised tricycle is non-compliant and can’t be ridden on public roads or paths if it has any of the following:

  • a petrol-powered or internal combustion engine
  • an electric motor capable of generating over 250 watts (depends on state rules)
  • an electric motor that is the primary source of power.
    For example, if your tricycle has a petrol-powered engine attached before or after purchase, it is non-compliant.
    If your tricycle’s electric motor can help up to speeds in excess of 25km/h without cutting off, it is non-compliant.
    If your tricycle has non-functioning pedals that do not propel the tricycle , it is non-compliant.
    If you can twist a throttle and ride your tricycle using the bike’s motor power only, without using the pedals, it is non-compliant.

Non-compliant tricycles must only be ridden on private property with no public access.

If a non-compliant tricycle is to be ridden legally on a road, it must comply with the Australian Design Rules requirements for a motorcycle and be registered. Electric tricycles do not meet these standards.

All Trike Bike Tricycles comply with federal road rules and can be used legally in every Australian State or Territory.
