    Hi all,

    I have finally decided to sell my two wheel recumbent, my left knee is jiggered and cannot support
    me well when I stop so I'm switching to my trike only. Can anyone recommend the best place to
    advertise the bent? Any advice appreciated.

    Small ad in Velovision or CTC Mag seems a likely one. What flavour is it?

    I check them out thanks, it is a Challenge Wizard OSS model with a few nice things like hydraulic
    brakes, de or hubs and dereilliurs, it is a shame to sell as the bike is really nice to ride, very
    comfy and suitable for commuting or touring, but this falling over at junctions thing is getting
    very depressing, only a matter of time before blind woman in Volvo runs over my head as well.

    And what's the asking price for sales to far-sighted recumbenteers whose Volvos are rarely used on
    the Public Highway, if one might make so bold?

    About £800 I guess, would cost about £1300 new, I'm probably going to sell this and my Kett Wiezel
    trike, and get a more racing orientated trike.

    No, last long distance I did was last year, the knee is not inspiring me with confidence, have been
    restricting myself to 30 to 50 mile rides lately.

    Cycling Plus seems to be a place where recumbents crop up with regularity.

    The CTC mag may be worth trying, tho' when I've tried to buy things they have often already been
    sold, perhaps due to its long lead times and a two-monthly publication schedule.

    I think both are free (the latter for members only)
