This TerraCycle made Battery Mount for ICE Trikes comes with a shelf drilled to allow the mounting of many different batteries.
Batteries are dense and difficult to carry. This mount lets you attach your BionX, or other battery to your ICE trike down low and out of the way. In fact, it lets you put the battery so out of the way that you can fold the trike with the battery attached!
Down low is important for handling and stability—you don’t want something as heavy as a battery on top of a rear rack of a trike. And out the way means you still get full use of your rear rack if you have one.
All parts machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and black anodized. All fasteners are stainless steel.
Fits all ICE rigid rear trikes from 2011 onwards. It may work on earlier trikes, we haven’t had a chance to test that.
The primary attachment is to the mudguard strut tube. A pair of clamps attach another sideways tube. A mounting plate goes up from outside the chain up to the rear rack attachment point. A shelf attaches the the bottom of the mounting plate to hold the battery. The shelf is drilled and tapped to accept the BionX downtube mounting rail, but other batteries can be easily mounted.
The battery Shelf is 6 x 3.25in (15.25 x 8.25cm) and has 15 M5x0.8 threaded holes for attaching batteries or battery adapter plates. 13 of the holes are in 2 rows with bottle boss spacing used by many batteries.
Mounting hardware are provided for the rear rack attachment point for trikes with and without a rear rack.
Both the vertical plate and the shelf are made from 1/4 inch (6.35mm) thick aluminum. This means it is both very sturdy and easily drilled to modify needed for your particular battery system.
