Custom Tour Easy
This is my pride-and-joy custom Tour Easy that I vowed I’d never sell. Never say never. Those of you that visited the Recumbent Blog are very familiar with this bike. It was built up from parts that I hand-picked and collected over the better part of a year. I like to imagine it’s what a Rivendell recumbent would look like if they built recumbents (they don’t). It’s a perfectly comfortable, smooth, and confidence inspiring bike that can be used for anything from commuting, to long distance touring, to toodling around the neighborhood. It handles wonderfully at low speeds, yet it runs as if it’s on rails at speeds over 25 mph.
The bike is in perfect condition and comes outfitted with a brand new, never-ridden set of Schwalbe “Marathon Racer” tires. Also included are an extra front fork, seat back mesh, and seat base foam/cover (all brand new). The Riv bags, water bottle cages, bell, and kickstand are not included. All other listed accessories are included. It’s being sold on consignment at Gold Country Cyclery in Shingle Springs, CA. Contact Rick Steele at Gold Country to set-up an appointment to see the bike or discuss pricing, shipping options, etc.
