Reduced! Custom Tour Easy Recumbent Bike!

This Easy Racers "Tour Easy" is a fantastic, custom model put together by Angletech of Colorado.  The bike is less than 6 months old and has about 1,300 miles on it.  It's a smooth-riding, fantastic bike, great for a trip to the store or across the country.  Recumbents offer a "heads-up" view of the world not to be missed.  I've loved this bike, but it's a bit long for my current needs, and I want to go back to a more compact model.  I've invested almost $4,000 in this fully equipped touring bike.  You'll only need to add a few basics to this rig in order to strike out cross country.  Easy Racers has been a leading US recumbent designer and manufacturer for 25 years.  These bikes are built to last.  This one handles like a dream, even when heavily loaded, brakes smoothly, and shifts like melted butter.

Here's what you get:

Full tinted Super Zzipper fairing (some scratches) and mounts suitable for lycra body sock

Adjustable stem for incredible ergonomics

Shimano Dura Ace barcon shifters

Shimano XT rear derailleur (w/Rollamajig for even smoother shifting)(some slight scratches) and 443 front derailleur

Suntour Superb cranks with Salsa rings (24/38/48)

Mega-range cassette (11--34)

Philwood stainless steel  bottom bracket

Ritchy Pro Hubs and and WCS "Lifetime" Headset

Avid brakes:  "7" Speed dial levers, Arch Rival front and Ball-Bearing disc rear

Cyclestar mirror

Velocity Aeroheat rims w/black spokes: 700c rear/ 406c front

Tires: One touring set of Schwalbe Marathons and another set of slicks (hardly used)  Unused folding rear tire for touring spare also included

Rear rack and mounts for Tail Sok (pictured) for visibility and aerodynamics

Cool back seat (slight scratches low down)

Two kickstands: a light-weight, single-leg model AND a very stable, expensive ESGE two-legged model--great for touring

Frame bag for tools, tubes, etc. AND a handlebar bag for misc. items

Pedals, pump and computer found in photos not included.  I will include some basic pedals and toe clips, however, and some tubes!

The touring finale: Also included (featured in the photos with me on the bike) are the Llooongg under-seat panniers (bags) and rack.  

In short, this is a bike almost ready to go.  Just add pump, tools, water bottles, and a pair of legs, and you're ready to go.  It breaks my heart to auction this baby off, but it's just not the right bike for me at this time.  For more information, you can check out the manufacturer's website:
