Battery Mount TerraCycle for Shimano Steps
This TerraCycle made Battery Mount for ICE Trikes comes with a shelf for Shimano Steps.
Batteries are dense and difficult to carry. This mount lets you attach your Shimano Steps 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. And out the way means you still get full use of your rear rack if you have one.
If you have been struggling with how to carry your battery, this elegant, simple solution is what you've been looking for!
All parts machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and black anodized. All fasteners are stainless steel.
Fits all ICE non suspended trikes from 2011 onwards.
The primary attachment is to the right side of the suspension pivot tube. A special Z shaped arm goes under the power side chain and attaches to the mudguard stay frame tube. A mounting plate goes up from outside the chain up to the rear rack attachment point by the seatback adjustment QR. A shelf attaches the the bottom of the mounting plate to hold the battery.
Spacers and mounting hardware are provided for the rear rack attachment point for trikes with and without a rear rack. Only one or the other sets of hardware is used.
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.
