ICE a strange thing happened Part two
After contacting ICE and sending the Gear sprocket back to them.
They believe there is a problem with the softness of the steel in the bigger range of sprockets. It’s a manufacturing problem not of inspired cycle engineering’s making, and for me makes no deference what I think of the sprint it’s self, which is excellent. It’s a pity the part is faulty but I think fortunate that it’s come to light early on. ICE in there very attentive way, stopped sending the 10 speed sprint out to dealers for a short time till they sort out the problem with the Makers. I do believe they are offering a 7 or 9 speeds if you wish. Contact your dealer.
Once the hardness issue is sorted they have informed me they will send a replacement sprocket out to me, I would suggest  contact your dealer or ICE if like myself I had the trike delivered to my home  and put it together myself.   ICE have responded very quickly and positively about the problem which is a testament for me Just how good the product they make is and their attention to their customers.

 Strange thing happened today!!
Coming through Hayes on my way home just having completed 30 miles
The Chain started to Jump? I thought it may have been the Gear pack holding nut come loose as it would not run in the middle gear of the Pack however was ok top gears and bottom Gears, I took it easy to home keeping it in one gear.
On first inspection could not see a problem, so dropped out the wheel for a closer look and found one tooth tip bent over! And some damage around the tooth, not shore what has happened but looks like one of the studs that hold the tooth rings together may have broken  and the end looks like it may have bent the tooth. But I will leave that to ICE to have a look at, thankfully I had a new gear pack, I like to keep some Spares, running items a new chain and rungs and gear pack and wirers. However had a problem with the new Gear pack? I could put the main part of the gears on the wheel hub that the second part of the rings, but the last rings I just could not fit on and get the nut on! It just would not locate fit together; however the gear ring from the old pack fitted with no problem so in the end used that with the new Pack. Put it altogether and great ran well and after tuning it in worked perfect as it was before. Teething problems nothing to do with the trike its self
Just the Gear pack it does look like a manufacturing problem of the gear pack.
I do thing I was lucky I was not at speed when it happened as I had been doing some pushing to see what it would do and me. And it is a fantastic ride at speed.
We will see what ICE thinks.
