I first considered buying a Rover but decided that my area was too hilly and I'd need more top and bottom end on the gears. Plus, I thought the seat would be difficult to get in and out of on the Cruiser but it turns out not to be a problem. The cruiser I tried was very comfortable. My last issue concerns how well this bike travels on dirt. About 2/3 of my riding will be dirt trails and roads. I am also considering an ICE because of the suspension, but it is much pricier. I can't really tell if the suspension really matters enough to spend that much more. Anyone ride a terratrike cruiser on fairly well groomed dirt trails? Do you feel that the ride is harsh?
