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!

Freedom Concepts Adaptive Trike - $1800

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 -

The DCP 16 is our original model! Today, it’s the bike kids want for its awesome design, fun colors, and smooth ride. It is small enough for an average 7-year-old, but adaptable to fit most kids in their early teens, making it an ideal choice for children expecting a growth spurt. Riding the DCP 16 is a great opportunity for kids to feel the independence they crave as they enter their teens and leave their childhood behind.
