MetaBike Recumbent for Sale.

For sale is my Red, Metabike recumbent. The bike is in near show room condition as it has done less than 400 miles from new and has never been dropped, crashed or ridden in the rain. It will be supplied with some accessories - full details below. If you are interested please read on. £1200 ovno.

New bike arrival and need for space means I need to sell this lovely bike.

The bike is the later aluminium alloy frame (with 4 holes for the seat mount - earlier models had 3). It is fitted with a medium sized carbon seat and ventisit seat pad and has the 700c carbon road forks fitted which will accept both 700c and 26" wheels.

This is a custom high spec build and a full parts list is given below:

Metabike Aluminium Frame (Red) with tiller handlebar
Carbon Forks 700c (disc compatible)
Medium Carbon Seat & Ventisit Seat Pad
Shimano 105 10 Speed 170 mm Double Chainset (53/39)
Shimano 105 Front Mech, & Shimano 105 10 Speed Rear Mech
Shimano 105 10 Speed 11-28 Cassette
Shimano 105 10 Speed Chains (needed 2 and a half)
Shimano Tiagra 10 Speed Flatbar Shifters
Avid BB7 Disc Brakes (F & R)
Avid HS1 Rotors
Avid Speed Dial 7 Brake Leavers
Jagwire Racer Gold Brake and Gear Cables
Token Lock on Grips
2x Zefal Cyclops Mirror
Continental Grandprix Tyres
Continental Inner Tubes (plus spares)
Fulcrum Metal 5 Wheels and hubs  (26")

I will include a Radical Designs Solo Racer Aero bag (in red) and a pair of Radical Designs Banana Racer side bags.

This is a fantastic, fast recumbent and deserves to be ridden more. The total cost for all the listed components and accessories would be £3000 my asking price is £1200 Rovno. I am based in Liverpool and would prefer cash on collection. If you have any queries about the bike please do not hesitate to PM me.

This is very adaptable recumbent and can be set up as a fast road machine or as a tourer (it has frame fittings for mudguards). It is by far the quickest machine I have owned (if you have a good engine!); I've tried it with 700c wheels and they make a significant difference to speed. I will be sorry to see it go. Please note the bike will be sold without the pedals shown.
