Brompton P6L Demo - $1599

Every so often we cycle through our Brompton demonstrator bikes, and now it's time to release a couple into the wild, so to speak.  Here's a very nice P6L in the Stardust Black metal-flake finish that is really eye catching in sunlight.  Complete with a Shimano dynamo hub based lighting system, telescoping seat post and front carrier block, new this bike would have been over $2050. Ridden on short test rides around our lot and on the W&OD, this is a great deal on a low mileage Brompton.

Brompton S2L-X Demo - $1699

Every so often we cycle through our Brompton demonstrator bikes, and now it's time to release a couple into the wild, so to speak.  Here's a nice S2L-X Superlight with titanium fork and rear frame, as well as a few other light weight options, bringing the weight to around 22 lbs, about as light as you can make a stock Brompton.  Complete with a  front carrier block, new this bike would have been over $2350.

Catrike Expedition recumbent trike - $1800

For many years, the Expedition was Catrike's most popular offering, and it's still a great tadpole trike.  Utilizing Catrike's space frame design, integrated seat and direct steering system, you get a light, responsive trike with great handling.  This one is in very good condition and includes a rear view mirror, rear cargo rack, and neck rest. The previous owner also installed locking brake levers on the trike, a feature only recently introduced on Catrikes from the factory.  All in all, a great riding trike for a very good price.  New the trike alone is $2550, and the extras would easily add $200 or more to that cost.

One of the more popular Terns since the brand was introduced a few years ago, the Link D7i is a great little bike for commuting and combining with other forms of transportation.  20" wheels give you a nice compact fold, while the rack and fenders make the bike practical in all weather and capable of carrying your stuff.

Jamis Nova - $450

Here's a very nice older bike... designed for cyclocross, but the original owner bought it as a bare frame and built it up as more of a hybrid or flat bar road bike.  Really excellent mix of parts... Shimano 600, 105, XT, etc. and very well cared for.  Set up with Mavic MA-2 rims, it's great for day rides, commuting, etc.  Put some stouter rims and tires and a rack on it, and it would make a nice flat bar touring bike... it even has mounts for a front "low rider" rack for panniers.  Frame size if 54cm center to center.
