Easy Racers Tour Easy Recumbent (not at store) - $1850

If you like to ride a bike (or like the idea of riding), but hate the sore butt, the sore neck and shoulders, and the sore hands and wrists (and wish you could actually look up to enjoy the stuff you're pedaling by), a recumbent bike is something you should consider.  A recumbent successfully addresses all these issues.

Easy Racer bikes are a well-established mainstay in the recumbent world. They have been made in the US since 1979 (and are still made here). Custom versions are revered for having set many human-powered land speed records. One of those record-setting bikes--the Gold Rush, built by Easy Racer founder Gardner Martin and ridden by legendary cyclist Fast Freddie Markham--is at the Smithsonian; the bike exceeded 65 miles per hour in 1986, winning the heralded DuPont Prize. (That was on perfectly flat land.)

Of course, 65mph on a bike is not your goal. At least, it shouldn't be. The point is that these bikes are easy and comfortable to ride. Ridden by a highly-trained (and slightly insane) cyclist like Fast Freddie, yes, one can go 65. Ridden by the rest of us, you can go any speed you wish, and be happy and comfortable doing it.

HP Velotechnik Gekko FX 26 w/Go Swiss Electric Assist - $6000

Here's a great trike with the added feature of a 250W electric assist motor system.  AND it folds!  Since it's introduction, the Gekko has been very popular with our customers, and this year was the first time HP Velo offered it in the US with electric assist.  A sophisticated control system and powerful motor (in the rear wheel) can help power you up any hill.

With rack fenders, as equipped, this trike would cost about $7000 brand new.  In like new condition, with very few miles on it, this is a great deal.

Learn more about the trike here: Gekko FX 26

And the assist system:  Go Swiss

Yuba Boda Bodas!

These are not technically "used" bikes, in that they've never left the store, but we've had them around and getting test ridden long enough that they're not shiny new any more, so we are marking them down drastically.

The Boda Boda is a "medium tail" cargo bike, designed to carry 250 lbs of stuff or kids, using the integrated rear rack and/or a variety of bags.  We even have a Pea Pod child carrier for them if you're interested.

We have a standard Boda Boda (with a dynamo lighting system), originally priced at $1199, now marked down to $849.

And then there's the EL Boda Boda Lux... the "el" is for Electric, because it has a Bionx electric motor system to help you haul your stuff around.  Very handy for those giant shopping trips!  Originally $3018, now $2199.

We've also got some Yuba accessories as well... all 20% off!  Come on in and check them 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.

From the Freedom Concepts website -
