Xootr Swift Folding Bike - $499

Not a used bike in the usual sense, this bike has just been on our sales floor a bit too long, and it's time for it to go.  Previously priced at $799, this is a great deal.  A very nice riding bike, it feels just like a conventional hybrid when riding.  Simple fold, though not the most compact.  It can, however, be broken down small enough to fit into a suitcase, which is a plus for travel.  This is what Xootr calls a Medium size, typically suitable for riders around 5'5" - 5'8" tall.

Schwinn Voyageur GS - $175

A good, basic, comfortable hybrid bicycle with suspension fork.  A nice choice for those Sunday rides with family, or put a rack and some bags on it and take it grocery shopping or running errands.  Frame measures 18" from center of crank to the top of the seat tube.

Specialized Allez Pro - $400

From the early 90s, a really nice road bike with lugged steel frame and aluminum fork.  Equipped with the Shimano 600 "Tri-Color" component group (now called Ultegra) with integrated brake/shift levers, 8 speed rear, double crankset, for 16 gears.  An older bike, but really fine quality and in great shape.  Comes with the interesting Scott Drop In bars, where they take a turn inward at the bottom of the drops to give you yet another hand position.  The seat tube measures 52cm from center of crank to the top of the seat tube.

Ridekick Power Assist Trailer with Lithium Battery- $799

The Ridekick is a clever little product... a trailer with a built in electric motor and battery!  Can be used with almost any bike, and if you don't want to use it, it's easy to disconnect and ride your bike normally.  With a small cargo compartment for carrying your stuff.  This one has been upgraded to the Lithium battery, and new would normally retail for over $1300.

Dahon Speed Pro TT - $849

A visually striking and great riding folding bike from Dahon, the Speed Pro TT was one of their higher end models, with bullhorn handlebars, integrated road brake/shift levers, and light weight, high pressure tires for a quick ride.

Rans Fusion with Bionx Electric Assist - $1899

The Fusion is what's known as a "crank forward" bike, which puts the rider on a wide, comfortable seat, with feet further forward of the seat than on a typical bike.  A very comfortable position that also allows you to put both feet down when you stop, while still having proper leg extension when pedaling.  Included in this package is a Bionx electric assist system to provide an extra boost on long rides and hills.  Also comes with a frame bag and mirrors.  Come on in and check it out!

Tern Link D7i w/Luggage Truss & Kanga Rack $699


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. The 7 speed internally geared hub is reliable, simple and very low maintenance and accommodates a cover for the chain to keep oil off of you and dirt off the chain.  This one also comes with Tern's Luggage Truss and Kanga Rack on the front for carrying more stuff!

Hase Pino Allround Tandem - $3999

A bike we rarely if ever 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, and the seller is including the spiffy Arkel rear bag with the bike.  With a new price of around $6000, this one, in very good condition with low miles, is a great deal.

Rans Stratus LE with extras - $1099

Long one of the most popular long wheelbase recumbents, the Stratus LE offers great comfort and handling, as well as Rans' excellent handlebars with a great deal of adjustability.  This one comes with several great extras... TerraCycle Easy Reacher under seat cargo rack, Axiom water repellent panniers, and a Windwrap fairing (not shown) for aerodynamics.  Now in 2017 a brand new one sells for $2600, without all the extras, and those could easily add up to another $500 or more.  This is the "standard" size Stratus, suitable for riders with X-seams from 32.5" - 43.5".
