TerraCycle - ICE Idler Kits Sport

TerraCycle Sport series idlers are tough, good looking, have super performance and are about half the price of their Elite idlers.

ICE Dual Under/Under Idler Kit: The ultimate kit for all the ICE trikes including the newer models. This kit allows you to dispense with most or all of your chain tubes and optimize the drive train for the least amount of friction and the highest performance. On the newer trikes you may have to retain a run of power chain/return chaintubes in the rear to protect the frame during folding. If you do not fold your trike then you can remove the bulk of the return side tubing. Composed of side by side TerraCycle idlers. Sport idlers include Aluminum cogs and ABEC Bearings and ensure great performance. The kit also features a beautiful aluminum chain keeper. All high quality bolts, spacers and nuts required are included in the kit for easy installation. If you wish to experiment with keeping a minimum of chaintube in the rear of the trike for protecting framework or the folding mechanism, you can take a look at the TerraCycle Floating Chaintube Holder as a possible solution, especially on the newer trikes with the side folding hinge mechanism.

  • NOTE: Do not use the Dual Under/Under Idler Kit on the ICE T, as it has a very flat return chainline. The ICE T Over/Under Idler kit is recommended instead.

    ICE Power Idler Kit: The perfect kit to get better performance from your ICE. This kit is composed of TerraCycle's toothed power idler with Aluminum cog and ABEC bearings(Sport series). The mount allows the idler to float, improving the chainline and reducing friction and noise. The idler bolt is stainless with a beautiful machined aluminum chain keeper. Includes a holder for your existing return chain tube. This kit is for the ICE Owner that wishes to keep the existing drive train configuration, but seriously upgrade the quality of power idler carrying the chain. The smoothness, quietness and increased feel of power to the rear wheel will be noticeable on your first ride.

    ICE Over/Under Idler kit: This idler kit replaces the existing idler on your ICE T and lets you remove all the chain tube. By adding a clamp on mount further back, the chain is controlled enough to make it past the pivot without undue contact. And, by routing the return chain up and over, it's kept very nicely under control as well. Available in Sport Series with Aluminum cog and ABEC bearings.

  • Notes: the chain rerouting done by the over/under kit reduces the ground clearance of the trike by about 50mm (2"). If this is a concern to you, we recommend you get our ICE Power Idler Kit, which mounts to the original idler mount. Also, since the vertical position of the power side chainline is different, you have to be aware of potential effects on the suspension. To reduce "pogo", or pedaling induced suspension bobbing, it's important the power side of the chain is nearly in line with the rear suspension pivot. If the chain goes too high or too low, pedalling will pull the rear swingarm in and make the trike bob up and down. Basically, the clamp on idler mount moves the power side chainline down. This means that you need to be able to adjust your suspension so the rear swingarm swings up more, moving the pivot down to meet the chainline. The amount of pivot movement required, assuming you already have the suspension adjusted correctly, is about 1" to 1.5". To check your suspension adjustment, shift into the middle cog in back. Sit on the trike, put gentle pressure on the cranks and have someone sight horizontally into the pivot. The chain should ideally be within 1/2" up or down from the pivot. If you can then adjust the suspension so the chain is 1" to 1.5" too high, you can use our idler kit without any pogo.
