TRADE IN DEMO / FOR SALE Nazca Gaucho 28 XT 700/700 with 30 spds XT 10-speed, carbon large seat, carbon Enigma CX disc front fork, red frame, Avid BB7 disc on front / calliper on back, tiller, tyres Continental Grand Prix, shifters XT, crankset Shimano 105 triple 50-39-30, cassette 11-34, Ventisit, Air shock. The Gaucho is the lightest model in Nazca's range and blends the comfortable seat and frame adjustability of the Fuego with a lighter 700c wheelset. We fitted 165 cranks to provide a more relaxed knee angle. All in all a very nice machine for riders taller than 180cm. This model is the more reclined version of the Gaucho which we feel works nicley. Luggage can be carried with a Radicla Aero bag if required. For heavier touring we recommend the Gaucho Tour 26. This also comes in twin 24 and twin 28 (700c) versions with a wide range of steering and equipment options.
NEW DEMO 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
