DEMO Kidz Tandem - $1599

Another "retired demo" situation, where we've had the bike in the store for a season and it's time for it to find a home, so we're offering it at a great price. A great family bike, the Kidz Tandem puts your youngster in front of the adult, who steers, shifts, and brakes from behind.  That way you can keep an eye on the younger rider while riding, and it's easier to communicate with them.  Normally $2100, we're now offering this one at $1599.

DEMO Bacchetta Giro A26 - $1999

Long one of the most popular short wheelbase "high racer" recumbents, the Giro A26 is a quick and sporty bike that's a lot of fun to ride, and super comfortable to boot.  The larger front wheel puts the rider in a more aerodynamic position and the higher crank allows you to put more of your back into pedaling.  This one has been on the shop floor most of the season, so we're offering it at a discount as a "retired demo" bike.  Originally selling for $2300, this bike has only been ridden on test rides near the shop.  There's some shop wear (scratched paint on the fork), and it has a 3x9 drivetrain instead of the 2020 spec 2x11.

Dahon Eco C6 - $199

A few years back this was Dahon's basic entry level folding bike with gears, and it still makes a great, practical commuter or shopping bike today.  A 6 speed drive train will give you plenty of range for most riding, and the fenders will keep water and crud off you and the bike in all weather.

TerraTrike 3.0 - $799

Another of TerraTrike's more popular models in the past, the 3.0 is a nice, comfortable tadpole trike.  Equipped with a 27 speed drive train with bar end shifters and disc brakes, Shimano SPD dual sided pedals, as well as a rear rack, flag, and rear view mirror.  This would make a very good first trike at a great price.  The size is small, suitable for riders with an X-seam of 39 - 43 inches.  Measuring X-seam: https://www.terratrike.com/resources/sizing/

TerraTrike Cruiser - $699

No longer made, but one of TerraTrike's more popular models in the past, the Cruiser is a nice, comfortable tadpole trike.  Equipped with a 24 speed drive train and disc brakes, as well as a rear rack and front light mount and rear view mirror.  This would make a very good first trike at a great price.  The size is medium, suitable for riders with an X-seam of 42 - 46 inches.   Measuring X-seam:

Dahon Ios S9 - $599

A very nice folding bike from Dahon, the Ios features 24" wheels, a 9 speed drivetrain, along with hydraulic disc brakes and an articulated handlebar stem that allows a wide range of handlebar positions.  This one also comes with a rear rack and a bell.  A very nice riding bike that folds up compactly for commuting or taking it in your car without needing a carrier on the back.

Hase Pino Allround Tandem - $3999

A bike we rarely 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.  With a new price of around $6000, this one, in very good condition with low miles, is a great deal.  This one was ridden by a father and daughter, who have been customers and friends of the shop for many years.

Kidz Tandem - $999

A great family bike, the Kidz Tandem puts your youngster in front of the adult, who steers, shifts, and brakes from behind.  That way you can keep an eye on the younger rider while riding, and it's easier to communicate with them.  This is an older one, but very well cared for, and decked out with an array of bells, horns, streamers and a child seat.  New these are selling for $2100, so here's a good one for less than half that.

Barcroft Columbia Tandem - NOT AT STORE - $2500

A compact high performance recumbent tandem, purchased in 2003. The short size makes the bike more nimble and easier to transport on a standard car rack than other recumbent tandems. It can make a U-turn inside a 12-foot circle! Front captain position is similar to a short wheelbase recumbent. Rear stoker position is similar to a long wheelbase recumbent. Very comfortable.

ICE Trice QNT - $2699

An older but very nice ICE trike, from back when they sold them under the Trice name.  The Q-series had the lower slung frame similar to the current Sprint series, and NT means Narrow Track, where the distance between the front wheels is a bit narrower than the standard (27" instead of 31").  This comes in handy when you're dealing with going in and out of conventional doors, or on trails with bollards.  A really nice riding trike!

A basic hand powered cycle for casual use, the Sun HT-3 has a three speed internally geared hub and a coaster and hand brake.  The higher seating position makes for easy mounting and dismounting, as well as transfers to and from a wheelchair.  New they typically sell for $1099, but we've had this one as a demo for awhile.  In very good shape, with a bit of shop wear.
