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.
