In addition to a used Big Dummy, we have two Xtracycle equipped bikes for sale. (**11/30/09 – These bikes have been sold. We do sell used cargo and xtracycles occasionally, so stay posted, or join our email list for more info)
First up is a bike that was sold to a customer, used less than 10 times, then returned by the customer because she wasn’t able to use it. This is a Marin San Rafael Euro (now called the EZ Step), wedded to an Xtracycle Freeradical kit. Brand new, this setup retails for about $1,100. We are offering this used for $790 – over $300 off the normal price, for a very lightly used bike. The frame is 17″, designed for someone who is in the low to mid 5′ range, height wise. Please drop us a line if you are interested. Here are some pictures:
Second up is Morgan’s own used Xtracycle. She is building up a new Big Dummy for herself, with a slick continuously variable transmission by Nuvinci. So, sadly, her trusty Xtracycle rig has to go. This is a classic – based on a pink 1992 Stumpjumper frame made with Tange Prestige tubing and matching Specialized rigid fork. The bike has Deore XT components, a really nice Bontrager road triple crankset, platform pedals, and of course, the Xtracycle. Morgan is asking $525 for this, so it is like getting a used Xtracycle kit for $350 and bike for $175. Or something like that. Did I mention that it has the very comfortable Nitto Albatross bars? Or the SweetSkinz nightwing tires?
This bike setup is ideal for a tall(ish) person, 5’11-6’3 or thereabouts. Drop us a line if you’d like to see the bike, or inquire about having it shipped.
Now is a great time to get one of these – last summer, these were sold out nationwide for three months.
Gas will get expensive again….
