Bilenky Road Tandem - $2200

A really fine, hand built tandem from Bilenky Cycle Works of Philadelphia, this is very cool bike that has the added feature of being built with S&S couplers that allow you to break the bike down into pieces for travel.  Equipped with high end Shimano components and an Arai drum brake for use as a drag brake on downhills.  Sized for a tall (5'-10" or taller) captain and shorter (5'-0" - 5'4") stoker.

Trike Carrier for Car - $150

Adjustable to a wide variety of trikes, this carrier connects to a 1-1/4" hitch receiver on your vehicle. With an adapter (purchased separately) can fit a 2" receiver as well. Designed for carrying one trike.
New these are typically $350 or more.

Hase Pino Allround Tandem - $2999

A bike we rarely see on the used market!  The Pino is a very special tandem in that the "captain" pedals, steers, brakes and shifts from the back seat, and the "stoker" pedals in front in a recumbent seat.  What does that give you?  Well, both riders can see ahead, and communication is much easier between riders.  In addition, unlike a conventional tandem, the captain is well aware of how and what the stoker is doing at any moment.  Equipped with a freewheel mechanism that allows the stoker to take breaks from pedaling, it's a great bike for riders of different ability levels.  The Allround model includes fenders, rear cargo rack, and dynamo powered lighting system.  With a new price of around $6000, this one, in very good condition with low miles, is a great deal.

Greenspeed Magnum recumbent trike - $1600

When the Magnum was first introduced, it quickly became one of the more popular "tadpole" trikes here at the store.  Designed to accommodate riders up to 400 lbs, it's a sturdy, rugged trike for all riders.  It's also one of the few tadpoles that allows for seat height adjustment as well as angle adjustment.  To top it all off, it folds, and the front wheels have a quick release mechanism, making this trike one of the easier trikes to transport these days.  New the base trike sells for $3290, so with the rear rack and headrest, this trike would sell new for over $3400.

Vision Thoroughbred "Crank Forward" - $250

Before Electra Townies and their "flat foot" design, even before the RANS "crank forward" series, there was the Vision Thoroughbred.  Vision was one of the more popular recumbent makers at one time, best known for their R-Series bikes.  The Thoroughbred took the design of a conventional bike and moved the cranks and pedals further forward in relation to the seat.  The design allows the rider to have proper leg extension while pedaling and also allows them to put their feet down when they stop, while still seated.  A very comfortable riding position that takes weight off the shoulders, neck and arms.

Ti Trike T-150 Demo - $2695

We've used this trike as a demonstrator for a few years, so it's time to sell it!  It's got very few miles on it, mostly around our parking lot.  New they sell for $3195, and while this one has some shop wear it is mechanically excellent and should give many years of service.  With a higher, comfortable seating position, titanium frame, drum brakes and Patterson 2 speed front crankset, this is a very cool machine.  Come on in and check it out!

Electra Townie Go! 8i E-Bike - $1699

Electra bikes have long been known for their "flat foot" design, which puts the rider's feet a bit further ahead of the saddle than most bikes.  This allows for both proper leg extension when riding as well as allowing the rider to touch the ground from the saddle when they stop.  Add to that, this bike has the Bosch Performance System electric assist motor drive to help you get up those hills and get around without wearing yourself out.  New these sell for $2600.  This bike is about a year old and in excellent condition with fewer than 50 miles showing on the compute, so it's a great deal.  Come on in and check it out!

A good trike for kids with special needs from Freedom Concepts.  This particular one comes with a few optional features, including larger pedal platforms and an additional brake lever on the push bar in back, so an attending adult can activate the brakes if needed.  In excellent condition, not heavily used.
