RANS Velocity Squared recumbent - $1100

The RANS Velocity Squared (V2 for short) was a very popular model a few years ago, featuring a long wheelbase design and slightly higher crank position that bikes like the Tour Easy and similar LWBs.  A smooth comfortable ride, this one comes with a rear rack, rack top bag, fenders, and a fairing for better aerodynamics.  An added feature of the fairing is it makes winter riding a lot more pleasant!  New this bike was around $2400, without the extras, so this is a really good deal.

TerraTrike Sportster x30 - $1999

Not used, but a trike we ordered too many of and we'd like to see the last ones find a good home, so we've marked them down.  Originally $2799, the Sportster is the top of the line TerraTrike, with an aluminum frame and higher end components, with a 26" rear wheel and 10 speed rear cassette and derailleur, matched to a triple crankset up front for 30 speeds.  The x30 is no longer available, replaced by the x20 (2 chainrings instead of 3), so this is your last chance to get this version, and at a great price!  We only have two left, so hurry before they are gone!

Ti Trike T-150 Demo - $1999

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!

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.
