Hi,

I am selling my Nazca Fuego

It is a midnight blue medium frame with the following components

Large Carbon fibre seat with ventisit seat and ice head rest
Adjustable tiller steering, with tilt for getting on and off, foam grips.
Rohloff Quick Release 14 speed Speed Hub, chain tensioner, with rohloff twist shifter
Alfine 45t front chain ring with guard
172.5mm cranks with Shimano SPD pedals
Boom with derailleur post should you wish to convert to derailleur
Coil suspension
Rear seat mounted rack
Fairly new Marathon Green guard 559 x 40 , 406 x 40 tyres
32 spoke wheels
SKS full length mudguards, front and back
SON Deluxe Dynamo Hub
Edelux front light, mounted on boom
Rear Son dynamo light mounted on rack
Kickstand
Avid BB7 cable disc brakes front and back, 160mm rotors

I have had the bike from new, from Laidback cycles, and it has had three slow speed falls (when I weas first learning) in that time. Minor scuffing on carbon fibre seat trim; paintwork pristine. Rohloff oil changed as per schedule, an easy operation.

I also have some Radical Design banana racer bags, and a 7 litre rack pack for the rack that I can include for a suitable offer.

It's a great bike for a first recumbent, and easy to ride once you learn to relax your upper body! Super stable at speed, and no twitchiness, easy to get feet down. Find yourself in the wrong gear at the bottom of a hill, no problem with the Rohloff.

I am 1.80m with inside leg of about 33" , bike should fit anyone from 5'6" to 6'2" if you are wondering whether it'll fit you.  

Looking for £2,500 but as always any sensible offer considered.

Can't add pictures yet , as far as I can see. Will do as soon as I have permission.

Nice bike Phil, you might also like to put it on the BHPC Facebook page for an increase in viewing numbers?


Also with the state of the £ it might be worthwhile advertising on Ligfiets or the German recumbent forums.

I'm definitely interested but I'm 6' 4"so not sure it will fit me - I'm near Watford - what part of Herts are you in?
Best wishes
Philip

I have sent you a PM.  You are welcome to come and try for size.  The large carbon fibre seat will be fine I'd imagine but the medium frame may be a bit short for you.  Will really depend on how much of your height is your legs and how much is torso, and therefore how much the boom needs to (and can) come out.

In theory the frame is for 1.60cm to 1.85cm but David Gardiner of Laid Back bikes, who is 1.90 reckons he's fine on the medium frame.

Good idea, the state of the pound has to be good for something!

Do you have links for any suitable German forums I can join and post it on?  Sure I'll find the dutch one via a search.

As normal you will have to join the forum to be able to post, adding photos is a pain!
