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".

Bike Friday Sat R Day folding recumbent - was $899 NOW $599

Here's a bike you don't see often nowadays!  Bike Friday is best known for their upright travel bikes, but for a few years they made this recumbent that packs down into a suitcase for airline travel.  This one is the original version with 16" (349mm) wheels, with a 27 speed drive train.  Included with the bike are a variety of spare parts, a bike cover and the suitcase, which has been equipped with Bike Friday's trailer conversion kit, so you can tow the case behind you with your stuff inside.

AZUB Max Recumbent - $2400

AZUB is a recumbent bike and trike maker in the Czech Republic, making very high quality bikes and trikes.  Relatively new to the US market, they're not as well known yet as some of the other makers, but I think you'll be hearing lots more about them in the years ahead.

This bike is a high racer with 26" wheels front and rear, with rear suspension, disc brakes and a very comfortable, adjustable hard shell seat.  You can learn more here:

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.
