DEMO - NOT FOR SALE Schlitter Encore Carbon 700 700/700 with 20 spds Carbon seat, carbon fork, carbon frame. Bentrider (www.bentrideronline.com) say: "Schlitter’s mission sounds like an impossible one. They set out to make a custom carbon fiber highracer that was fast, versatile and cost about the same as the average aluminum recumbent. Oh… And they came up with a new cockpit design that no one had tried before while they were at it. That’s a very tall order for your first time out, but they’ve done it." These bikes are made to order so only riders in the 1.8 to 1.9 range may fit or demo. If you are shorter or taller that's no problem as Schlitter will make one for you! Worth looking at if you've ever thought recumbents were too low, too slow, too difficult to ride or too heavy. ALSO REVIEWED ON DAVE McCRAW'S SITE
