Nazca Fuego Do it all semi-low racer with touring kit when required • Fits a wide range of riders

The Fuego has introduced more people to reclined riding than any other bike we’ve sold. First introduced in 2003 this comfortable tourer can be adjusted through a huge range of heights. For riders under 1.8m it’s actually one of the only bikes where both feet can be placed flat on the ground. (Unlike higher bikes where you may have to put front of foot or toe down - which can be tricky for newer riders). The frame adjusts in three steps, going from lower and longer with more ‘trail’, to a higher more upright ride. The seat comes in three sizes and adjusts to give extra ride positions in conjunction with the frame adjust. All adjusts are done by QR levers meaning the Fuego can be re-formatted from a bike you can ‘hand-stand’ to something higher in a matter of seconds. Nazca make the Fuego in the Netherlands with Rainbow in Aalten doing the fabrication and providing a lovely range of powdercoat colours. Yes, it’s steel but with enough alloy parts to make it not too heavy. The Fuego in its lightest configuration has been raced by Peter Haan in NL. The most common spec sold uses XT gearing. This combined with a 48/36/26 Chainset gives you enough gearing to tackle almost anything. The Fuego though can be fitted with a Rohloff 14 speed hub or a SRAM Dual Drive if you want. Accessories - there are loads. Top one is the underseat pannier rack which can carry standard large panniers and keeps the weight right in the centre of the bike. This is one bike that rides fully laden just as well as unladen. Users have taken it across Canada in ‘pack mule’ mode.

The Fuego is well worth a look if you’re in the market for a recumbent that will be fast and exciting without being crazy (or crazily expensive!), especially if versatility and all-weather riding is important to you. The sturdy build quality and predictable handling also make it ideal for those who picture themselves bashing over cratered moonscapes or playing in rush hour traffic. Dave McCraw

Packing onto a train or standing vertically on its back wheel is easy. The Fuego packs a lot of bike in a small space and its aerodynamic profile means it can shift quickly. I would categorise it as a streamlined hybrid and although it can be fast it is not a ‘Sportive’ machine. Not that you would expect it to be as it comes with a small rear rack and mudguards. I always recommend fitting the short stubby kick stand too as it doesn’t add much weight but makes it very functional. For sportives a Nazca Gaucho 28 is more suitable but the Fuego can handle most daily commutes with ease. All in all a very practical bike that’s a joy to ride and one that sets its own standard. The Fuego comes in two frame sizes, the medium covering riders from 1.60m to 1.85m. The larger Fuego covers 1.75m to 2.00m and is slightly lower as the seat drops between the longer wheelbase.

ICE Sprint 26 Do it all folding trike • Fits a wide range of riders

Featuring the ICE Flat Fold system, the ICE range of trikes covers distinct groups. For those wanting a more upright ride slightly higher off the road then the Adventure is a natural choice. However the ICE Sprint 26 has been a trike that many have come back to as it can cover the middle ground between the flat out speed design of the VTX and the more upright Adventure. Using a 26” rear wheel also makes it comfortable enough for many - that said full suspension trikes still have their fans. By using a ‘hardtail’ design the Sprint 26 still folds enough to fit most situations whilst being able to keep a very affordable rigid rack in place. So what’s the deal with the Sprint 26 that makes it a choice for this book? I think you can say it’s a practical, affordable, comfortable machine for anyone that finds leaning on handlebars stressful but doesn’t fancy having to ‘learn’ the art of riding a two wheeled recliner. The ICE design is all very relaxed. Underseat steering with bar ends puts everything at your fingertips. (In fact the steering is so easy and well balanced you can steer with your fingertips!). Handling is great with little pedal steer and the ability to scrub round corners. For those looking for a lighter wheelset and 30 speed gearing with a bigger range ICE offer the Sprint 26X. Owners have covered vast distances on these machines and the confidence of having three wheels means that this could be your winter trainer on days when a two wheeler might not be safe. So much more refreshing than cycling indoors! As far as ‘road presence’ is concerned the Sprint 26 comes with a flag and the rack has mounts for a tail light. Add to this the mirror supplied as standard and most riders feel pretty secure even though there’s only 4” between them and the road. The fact is that modern triking is a lot of fun and the ICE design means anyone can try it. We’ve had customers ranging from a Commonwealth Gold medallist to people with mobility issues use these. Whoever the customer then ICE has an answer. Accessories are extra and you can fit mudguards, a rack, front light mounts and other items to make this trike very much your own. ICE trikes are available in three colours, red, blue and black. Whichever one you pick you’re aspect is amazing – bound to have a lot of fun!

The comfort you just sit on a nice mesh seat and pedal – no strain on wrists, arms, shoulders, neck or back. My longest ride to date has been 105 miles... apart from feeling a little tired afterwards I felt surprisingly fresh. There’s no way I’d have felt as good after 105 miles on an upright bike!

Circe Helios Tandem Verstatile solo • Fits range of riders with stokers from 4 years old upwards • Lightweight and easy to pack

When people see a tandem you usually get comments of how they rode one once and they haven’t seen a new one for years. The Helios though is no nostalgia trip as this is not just a bike for two with small wheels. Designer Richard Locke made the first Helios in 2011 after years of producing Airnimal folding bikes and selling many other brands such as Bacchetta recumbents. His brief was to make a compact tandem that would fit everyone and even allow a small child to pedal. To achieve this the rear seatpost uses the telescopic seat tube already used on his Airnimal folding bikes design with the seat post going through the frame in front of the rear bottom bracket. This ingenious design had never been used on a tandem before and means that as the seat post goes up it moves away from front saddle. The folding and recumbent bike industry already had started using BMX 20” (406) sized wheels for many designs. With 36 hole rims and Schwalbe Big Apple tyres these are tough but still give the Helios a reasonably smooth ride. For adult ‘stokers’ a Cane Creek suspension seat post is worth fitting to remove any remaining harshness. The Helios is a very light bike with a basic weight of around 15.5 kg. Even with mud guards, pedals and extras this bike is light enough to pick up and stand on its rear wheel. When you do this you can see that length wise its around 1.9m with front wheel turned in. Short enough in effect to wheel vertically through a doorway, something impossible with large wheeled tandems.

We’ve found the Helios ideal for a car free family. Both our children have used this bike, first childseats and then pedalling from the age of 4. The Helios is also easy to ride solo and allows you space to hang extra bags on rear handlebars as well as panniers. Light and easy to adjust for riders of very different heights. The ideal machine to take your family across town and beyond. Sara Dorman, Circe Helios owner

Further compacting of the bike can be achieved by removing the seat posts and using the QR to release the steerer and bars plus taking off the front wheel. This produces a package that’s very low and light - ideal for stowing inside many vehicles. Carrying on a train isn’t a problem as the Helios is only slightly longer than a large solo bike. Customer feedback has been great with many using the Helios as their school run machine. Unlike a trailer bike your small co-rider does really help to cycle their weight and once they have been dropped off the remaining bike is just as fast. It’s all very neat and continental influenced users have equipped their Helios tandem with Alfine hub gears and front lighting hubs. Adult users too have toured on the Helios in Rohloff equipped versions and Circe have now introduced one that breaks down into smaller sections. Lastly Circe have launched several specialist racks including the heavy duty Titan and the Cargo back with extension to give a carrying platform instead of the rear seat. All very innovative.

Paper Bicycle Fits a wide range of riders • Fully equipped city bike • Integrated lights, brakes and rack • Custom built

Cycling should be for more than just ‘cyclists’. With this in mind Nick Lobnitz designed the Paper Bicycle with a low step design for the 21st century with low maintenance well matched components. There is a matching rack should you wish one - powdercoated to match. Add to this a large integrated chainguard and you need never tuck your trousers in your socks ever again. Handling wise the Paper Bicycle rides superbly. The Big Apple tyres roll well over all surfaces and with an 8 speed Sturmey Archer hub gear you can visit city streets normally fit for mountain bikes. The Paper Bicycle also uses 70mm Sturmey Archer drum brakes meaning wheel rims stay clean and unworn. The overall appearance is one of minimal clutter. Add in a Sturmey Archer dynamo hub on the front wheel and you can have lights anytime you like. The front light is a Busch and Müller Lyt with a rear LED light all wired in neatly through the frame onto the rear mudguard. One nice item is that this Scottish produced bike allows you to choose a wide range of colours. Options like wooden chain guards are available too as are white tyres. The Paper Bicycle might look like a pure style machine but it does earn its keep as a commuter and is generally nice for promenade riding anywhere. Don’t expect to be going more than 15mph though, except downhill! The seat angle allows an upright ride style, like the Urban Arrow. Nick Lobnitz says that the UA’s Dutch designer Wytze van Mansum was influenced by this design which he takes as a compliment. Both these bikes can adjust to a wide range of rider heights due to the rake of their seat posts.

It handles beautifully, it’s comfortable and quick (within the confines of quick as defined by aerodynamics and the upright position).

Of course there are hundreds of other low step through bikes with chain guards available but the Paper Bicycle has a one frame size fits all layout. Smaller riders find the Paper Bicycle allows a more comfortable ride and a better fit with 26” wheels and balloon tyres. One last neat touch is the integrated kick stand which was influenced by a love of vintage motorbikes. On mainland Europe special versions of the Paper Bicycle are in daily use on several bike hire schemes. All in all a tribute to its versatility and robustness of design.

Most importantly, it allows you to buzz around in your ordinary togs looking as sharp as a razor (whether or not you like to outstrip strangers who happen to be on bikes at the same time as you or not!) Dave McCraw

Urban Arrow Fits a wide range of riders • Fully equipped load carrier • Bosch Electric Assist

Away from an interest with out and out speed we like the idea of bikes that can be used everyday. I suppose the analogy would be like owning a nice pair of shoes. Nowhere else is this mode more prevalent than in places like Amsterdam and Copenhagen. Cycling there is as popular as walking and is supported by all shades of political opinion. Once you do have a market for bicycles then you can expect innovation. This is all about making the cycling experience less technical with machines that have usability at their heart. The Urban Arrow was designed in 2013 by Wytze van Mansum. From the start this aimed to take the best parts of the existing Azor Bakfiets with its wooden bucket and make it with more modern components allied with a Bosch electric assist. Modular frame design allows this to be shipped in more compact boxes to address the large export market possible as cities seek to clean up air quality and discourage private car use. The 2015 version of the Urban Arrow look very similar to the original but with improved access to a neater, 400 Watt battery. The motor status indication is on a single HMI display in the centre of the bars. The level of boost (Off, Eco, Tour, Sport, Turbo) are all at hand on the left hand side. No need to take your hands off the bars except to put on the integrated front and back lights. On the right hand side a twist grip allows you to access an infinite spread of gears with no clicks between on the rear Fallbrook Nuvinci hub fitted to a sturdy Ryde 26” wheel. the bike has an inbuilt frame lock and the same key unlocks the battery when it’s time to recharge.

We’ve been using our Urban Arrow on hilly city streets for journeys where we would have used a car. Typical load for me is two children plus bags. For winter use we’ve fitted spiked tyres. Having builtin lights is very handy and the the gearing system’s nice to use. Locking up is great. Battery life is also pretty good with a very accurate indicator. Fiona Burrough, Urban Arrow owner

Design on the Urban Arrow is so good that you don’t really need a handbook. First time though you do have to dial in the distant feel of the 20” front wheel. As with all good load bikes and tandems, the ‘feel’ of the bike improves when laden. The UA can carry up to 100kg and parents regularly carry two children plus luggage on the school run. It seems to be looked at as an extra car replacing a small city run about. The sturdy double kick stand allows it to be laden before pushing off. Urban Arrow are constantly looking at ways to improve the model and offer a box version in addition to a flatbed. Colour choice is limited though to black and white but with vehicle wraps available people can make them their own. Country of design: Netherlands Frame material: Aluminium


Nazca Quetzal Tandem Fits a wide range of riders • Top handling, fully equipped tourer - ‘cycling for two’ in great comfort • Folds or splits for transport Many people who ride a recumbent wish their partners and friends, who maybe cycle less, could share comfortable cycling with them. Enter the Nazca Quetzal, which is arguably one of the most complete pedal powered machines ever built. Nazca owners Henk and Monique had ridden thousands of miles on solo recumbent bikes and brought this experience with them when they launched the Quetzal in 2013. For the tandem design they essentially built a Nazca Gaucho for two. Originally designed as a 26” wheeled bike, success with a wider range of riders made Nazca add a Quetzal with 24” wheels to the range. Henk designed the Quetzal to be rigid but also fold at plates half way along the cantilevered frame. The rear swing arm is extra heavy duty with two suspension shock units. The front fork features a hydraulic disc brake. The rear is a BB7 disc with optional rim brake if required. Since producing this remarkable tandem all their recent bike holidays have been on the Quetzal. Our customers too have used the Quetzal for some ambitious long distance trips including across Canada from Vancouver to St Johns in Newfoundland. Packing on a plane means separating the bike into two halfs - not that difficult to do. Taking on trains is possible, the Quetzal once folded is shorter than a standard bike. Book two bike spaces and off you go. Gearing is a Rohloff 14 speed hub or Shimano XT 30 speed. Handlebars are the ‘aero’ type - ideal for mounting stuff like smartphones. Like all bikes the Quetzal can have a SON front hub to provide lighting and power top up. Lighting cables go inside the frame with neat plug to separate when required. Our models have used B+M Luxos front with Line rear. The rear brake also has a splitter. The Rohloff click box unbolts easily so that goes The Quetzal oozes quality and is with front of bike if you split frame. All very easy to do with minimal tools! clearly a labour of love, from its

impeccable manners to design highlights like the dual rear shocks and the ingenious stoker bottom bracket (which slides on the main frame). It can easily be ridden solo but the ride comes into its own when laden as intended – the Quetzal is a very solid and confidenceinspiring bike, vital when you are responsible for another person as well as luggage for two! Dave McCraw

Riding comfort and stability is superb. Choosing either 24 or 26 you should get both your feet flat down, Your partner just stays clipped in on the back and sets pedal angle for a clean push off. Some riders fit a freewheel for the ‘stoker’. Having tried both I think I prefer my co-pilot linked as easier to synch pedal strokes on steep hills. Average speeds though are normal and you are riding heads up in great comfort. Luggage has to be on rear rack a bike trailer being useful if you need to carry more. Level of adjust is very good with two tensioners keeping the chainline correct. If you use Rohloff then this is particularly easy with their powerful tensioner. The front seat can be moved forward to accommodate very tall rear riders. There are other tandems available but the Quetzal covers all options very well with a well worked out adjustable design. Tandeming has never been more comfortable or more fun! Country of design: Netherlands Frame material: Steel


Airnimal Joey Fits a wide range of riders • Folder with real gear range and proper pannier rack

Folding bikes are a major part of the bike market now, so much so that they have become commodity items with online offerings at very low prices. Airnimal have always looked at their market as a travel bike as much as a folder. Initially Richard Locke designed the Chameleon which uses lightweight 24” (520) wheels to make a package that would fit in a specially designed flight case. The Chameleon also has a small suspension elastomer similar to a Brompton. Airnimal then added to the range with a 24” (507) wheeled bike called the Joey. This is a ‘hardtail’ design that unlike almost any other folder takes 3x9 speed or 3x10 speed gearing .The Joey range offers a variety of specs which mean that you can have a Joey to do everything from a stripped down 9 speed lightweight city commuter to a ‘round the world’ Rohloff equipped tourer. The other notable thing about the model is the fact it will take standard panniers. Having larger wheels means the racks are higher from the ground. To complete the fold it’s necessary to remove the front wheel and reverse forks before ‘nesting’ the back frame with back wheel left in situ. This rear frame is held securely in by a QR lever - a very rigid but light arrangement. If a front mudguard is fitted you’ll need to pop the front stays out their plastic holders. Once folded the bike can rest on its back rack or on a special frame bracket. The telescopic seat post goes through the frame to lock it in position. A commuter kit bracket can hold the front wheel onto the rear with another bracket to hold the handlebar with stem. If required a carrying bag can be supplied. For air travel a special flight case can be bought. The Airnimal makes a lot of sense Both wheels come off and are located in the lid. The bike frame is packed neatly between thick foam. The case can become a for someone looking for a great trailer with a neat set of wheels and ingenious frame.

longer distance commuter or just a bike rider who is limited for storage space at home or the office. The Airnimal is thoughtfully designed, beautifully made and the performance is unique. It’s light, fast, stiff, looks great and is very good value for money. Bicycle Buyer Magazine

Apart from ‘trekking bike’ versions the Joey frame can be configured to a lightweight racer with carbon front fork and drop handlebars with STI shifting. This Joey Elite version uses the same 520 wheelset of the original Chameleon but can even be fitted with a rear rack. If you’re looking for a folding bike to cover more than a few miles on then the Joey range delivers. Sure there may be concept folder that appear more integrated but the Joey allows you to fit all the extras you’d expect on a full sized model. The ride quality of 24” wheels are also very close to those of 26” - allowing you to do some rougher roads with a good choice of tyres.

M5 CHR (Carbon High Racer) Effortless high speed carbon road bike • Rides like a low racer with 700c wheels • Handles beautifully

Riding a recumbent you are often reminded of why they aren’t supposed to work. ‘Cycling’ it seems is all about perceived speed mixed with fashion. Recumbents sometimes do neither. Personally I blame the riders ;-) Road riders lust after bikes such as the Pinarello Dogma as they try to buy the last bit of mechanical advantage over the ‘competition’ - generally riders like themselves who like to go out on a Saturday morning. If a bike is used by a ‘pro’ then more reason to get it for yourself in an effort to close the gap with the best of the bunch. What happened though if someone made a 700c wheeled bike with a light and rigid frame and around 60% of the drag of even a top pro bike? Chances are you’d be looking at the M5 CHR - a bike that looks like a concept has been growing in popularity since its launch in 2006. Bram Moens in the Netherlands was already many years into designing and making his M5 range before the CHR (Carbon High Racer) took shape. It was this experience as the holder of several records himself and supplier of winning bikes to others that helped him create such an advanced design.

Don’t get me wrong – the M5 Carbon High Racer *is* the fastest bike I’ve ever ridden over mixed conditions on real world roads. It’s really quite tempting as a prospect to replace my High Baron... For casual riders, I’m not convinced the M5 Carbon High Racer is such a good choice, especially if it would be your only bike. As a first recumbent this would be a very courageous choice indeed. Dave McCraw

The frame is 2.5kg carbon fibre using the FEM method. (Finite Element Method). Not the lightest but very rigid so all the power goes where it should. The long wheelbase means the seat is lowest in the 700c class which also helps with handling. The M5 CHR can be ridden no hands (with practice!). The bars don’t move but your ‘in the bike’ position feels just right. You can choose rim brakes or disc. If you want a rear bag a ‘rack’ made of carbon is fitted. When you have saved some more money you can buy a carbon tailbox that slides onto it. The front boom does slide in but smaller riders may have to use shorter 155 cranks. Below 1.8m you will have to fit a 26” front wheel. Either way you will be fast and quite comfortable. The seat only adjusts with spacers so this is a bike you’ll tune up for yourself. With 250w effort the bike will move along at 30mph - a figure only surpassed by velomobiles. The chain line can be raised to keep clear of front wheel. A headrest might be required - also handy to mount lights to. Several frame colours can be chosen if you don’t want black carbon. This is a bike that moves and feels like no other.

Hase Evo Kettwiesel - Shimano STEPS edition Fits a wide range of riders • Fully suspended ‘car replacement’ trike • Human/electric hybrid powered vehicle • Comfort at any speed Hase starting building ‘alternative’ bike designs in Germany in the 1980s. Over the years they have concentrated on developing their half recumbent / half upright tandem and their range of trikes. One of their ‘signature’ products has been the Hase Kettwiesel trike. This clever design has really dominated the ‘delta’ trike market and thousands have been sold. One area that Hase have really looked at is the electric assist market. The objective here is to produce a practical ‘car replacement’ human / electric hybrid and after twenty minutes test riding, I think this suspension Evo variant really delivers. Firstly it has a simple gearing system which actually works well with the assist. This is the Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub gear mounted on frame below seat and tensioned by the Hase’s new neater easy adjust system that allows a variety of riders to be set up without changing chain length. This in turn has a transfer chain to the rear axle where sure footed drive to both wheels is assured with the Hase differential. Latest versions have the rear Nexus hub equipped with Shimano Di2 electric shift. Either way the gears and Shimano STEPS assist are all designed to allow this machine to ‘motor’ along at 16mph more or less all the time. Even uphill. ...my mind started imagining The front and back suspension allows fast cornering with the best amount of isolation from rough surfaces that I’ve ever tested. The how I could use the Evo on rear swing arms have an air shock each with the air pressure level everyday life. Hase has a printed on them - a nice touch. Each rear swing arm has a covered drive chain and combined with the differential the drive is steady model that looks seamlessly and well balanced. The main drive chain is also nicely routed in a integrated and set to tackle metal pipe chainguard so all very neat and protects the chain and your clothes. The fold over fairing is well thought out and can be all eventualities in comfort removed quickly enough and stored in the rear bag. The rear bag and style. clips on and has wheels. A fold down handle means that you can park and then take your luggage with you in style. Only criticisms is Howard Yeoman, Velo Vision the low load weight assigned to this. I’m sure though that as this is the mark one version that Hase will continue to improve. Basically this machine defines a new category. Not bike/trike, not car, not motorbike. All weather transport that can still be lifted or stood up on its back wheels. It’s really the Sinclair concept built by a company that loves and understands cycling. Users get a nice sporty ride and as much exercise as they want by selecting the mode in a machine that is well worked out to do everything from a run to the shops or a tour of 30 miles.

Quest Velomobile Carbon fibre full suspension human powered vehicle • All weather covered cycling

Can a Human Powered Vehicle ever do the job of a car? It’s a recurring theme in a world where concept bikes and trikes abound. At the shop we do like stuff that has actually been proven in use and that’s where the Quest from Velomobiel.nl excels. Designed in 2005 by Allert Jacobs over 1200 examples have been produced so far. Both examples here use carbon fibre shell with a quality gel colour of your choice. The Quest has no chassis - the two 20” front and the single 26” rear wheel plus a pedal boom are mounted on subframes to the monocoque shell. Unlike many suspended trikes the Quest uses McPherson style suspension struts. Both machines sold have a Risse Racing shock rear strut which improves all round handling. Powering up the Quest you’ll notice how easy it is to get to 20mph. In fact on the level 30mph is quite easy with moderate input (250w). The controls are SRAM twist grip on a movable steerer which can be located neatly in a ridge in the shell giving you space to slide in and out in kayak style. Gearing on the Quest is generally 27 speed with the rear mech neatly protected within a removable fairing. Braking is With the development of the from 90mm Sturmey Archer Drum brakes activated from one central lever. The chain is protected inside chain tunes but is also Quest we searched for a bike streamlined and protected further by a the bodywork. This can with the best specification be seen as an off-centre keel when the Quest is rolled onto its side for servicing. As you can see the Quest is a neatly finished for speed and daily use. all round package that produces a lower drag coefficient than Speed is an important aspect 99% of anything else with pedals. The suspension soaks up the road well and speeds of over 40mph can be achieved easily on of comfort. Even if you are downhills. Undulating roads will bring in average speeds that not interested in riding fast. outperform bikes less than half the 30kg weight of the Quest.

that you can ride at “normal” speeds with little effort which means you can cover a longer distance in a relaxed way. Velomobiel.nl

Examples have regularly completed Audax events such as the Paris Brest Paris. For smaller riders an XS version is produced too. Owners regularly commute in their velos as with a removable hood and three wheels it’s fairly weather proof. The Dutch Velomobiel company continues to produce three wheeled Quests although a four wheeled QuatroVelo model has now taken off with many recent orders on their very accessible order site. The objective with the QuatroVelo is to have more luggage capacity and even better handling. With Velomobiel.nl the desire to develop will always continue it seems!
