ICE Adventure RS trike - $3200

The Adventure RS ( with rear suspension) has been one of our most popular trikes for several years now, and here's a chance to get a very lightly used one for a good price.  This one is set up with a rear rack, fender, mirror, Shimano SPD pedals, water bottle cage and cage riser, as well as a small bag on the back of the seat for tools and spare tube.  New this would sell for around $3900, but we're selling this one at $3200.

1982 (?) Proteus Design Road Bike - $750

Here's a bike you don't see every day.  Proteus made some great bikes... Tim owns a good example himself.  For lovers of classic lugged steel bikes, this is a gem.

From the seller:

Made in College Park, MD, this is one of the finer examples from one of the Mid-Atlantic’s better known shops.  Proteus is still a bike shop, but in the 70s and later it was also known for the Proteus frames built in-house, frame-building kits, and The Book on frame-building for amateurs.
This is an extremely well-preserved, first-class, vintage criterium bike – note the angles and wheel base. It is a wonderfully responsive bike, but not squirrelly.
I fell in love with it for  what is, but I’m getting older, and my interests are shifting away from these criterium bikes toward classic touring and long-duration road bikes that emphasize comfort over ultimate performance.  So, this bike needs a new home.  Will ship within continental USA, and can negotiate parts change-outs or sale of frame-set alone.

More info available, just ask.

Tern Link P7i - $950

One of Tern's higher end offerings in the Link series, this bike comes with an internally geared 7 speed Shimano Nexus hub, chain protector, and a built in dynamo lighting system powered by the rotation of the front wheel.  Unlike most of the Link series, it has an articulated, adjustable handlebar stem that allows you to fine tune the handlebar position for maximum comfort.

Motobecane Super Mirage - $200

A nice older road bike, this would make a great bike for long rides on the W&OD.  Made in France with mostly Japanese components, this was a good mid-level bike in it's day, and still a good one today.  Sized for someone around 5'-5" to 5'-8".

Greenspeed GT1 trike - $1600

A very popular and great riding trike from Australia, the GT1 also folds into a compact package for transportation and storage.  A proven design and a great handling trike.  This particular one comes to us with virtually no miles behind it, such that it would be hard to tell it from a new one.  New these sell for about $2200, so $1600 is a great deal.  Come on in and give it a test ride!

Peugeot UO-8 "City Conversion" - $200

A nice older Peugeot that has been upgraded with many new parts, including alloy wheels, North Road handlebars, new drivetrain, etc.  It would make a very nice commuter or errand bike for the right rider.  With a 25" frame, that means a taller rider, probably around 6 feet tall.

DraftMaster Rack - $300

Here's a lightly used rack for carrying two conventional bikes and one short- to medium- wheelbase recumbent at the same time.  The bikes sit vertically behind your vehicle, rather than hanging cross-wise.  You can see the basic idea here:

And a photo of the actual rack is here.  New this setup would cost over $600, so here's your chance to get a great deal on a lightly used older model.

Your vehicle needs to be equipped with a 2" receiver hitch to use this rack.

Bike Friday with Suitcase/Trailer Rig - $800!

A very nice older Bike Friday travel bicycle, in excellent shape.  Included in the price is a suitcase for packing the bike AND the Bike Friday trailer kit that converts the suitcase into a trailer for your stuff.  Very handy for the touring and traveling cyclist.  This feature alone is now $500 from Bike Friday.  The bike is a small one, best for those 5'-2" or shorter, I'd say.  It comes with a variety of extras, including a taller stem, to fit a rider who is a bit taller.

Novara Randonee Touring Bike - $300

Novara is a "house brand" of REI, and they've offered nice bikes for many years.  The Randonee has been a popular entry level touring bike for many, many years, and this one dates to the late 80s.  A lugged steel frame and Shimano components, along with sturdy wheels and front and rear racks make this a very affordable bike to try out bike touring.  Load it up with a tent, sleeping bag and panniers, and you're ready to ramble to your heart's content.  Touring bikes also make ideal commuter bikes... just put some fenders on, panniers for your work stuff, and away you go.  The size is 57cm.

Here's a fun version of the Kidz Tandem... set up as a road bike with drop bars front and rear.
