Challenge Fujin SL – Sold!…=-)

9 02 2009

Price reduced to $3100USD for Fujin SL as shown in photo below less soft bags + free shipping. This offer is valid until Fri 13 Feb when I leave for a month long MTB road trip in UT & AZ. Ideally I’ll take the Fujin with me and ship from the US. If I don’t work out a sale before I go I’ll offer the bent at the original price when I get back and the riding season is closer at hand.

I’m offering my lovely Challenge Fujin SL for sale.  I’m just not riding it as my friends don’t ride bents and I’m feeling social these days so I need to let it go to free up some bikey capital for other projects.

You can figure out the details pretty easily by reading my old blogger Lazy Rando Blog.  In broad strokes I’ll sell it as shown above less soft bags delivered anywhere in the US or Canada for $3100USD.  This bent is dialed in and setup for fast long rides.  All the bags and accessories shown above are included except for the GPS.  This price is l~60% of what a new Fujin SL with similar spec would cost plus free shipping – you’d be at about $5000USD to replicate this bike.  The bent is in excellent condition with all components less than 25% through their service lives.

If I get back into bents a Fujin SL would be my first purchase.

I’m leaving for a month of mountain biking in Utah & AZ next weekend so first person to meet my asking price gets the bike.  I can pack it and ship from along my route in the US so an American purchaser will not have to deal with any cross border hassles.

The price is firm and I carefully evaluated current costs as well as the condition of this bent to make sure it was a great deal for you while giving me a reasonable return on what I invested.

Ah… I’ve seen this one coming. Bummer to see ya selling the ‘bent, but good to see ya putting a bike ‘back into circulation’ so it can get ridden. No sense having ‘em collect dust for too long. And glad to see lots of fun being had with your other bikes.

I’m starting to ponder about selling my Lightning Phantom, my first ‘bent, been with me eight years. With the Quest and the XtraStreet, that covers most everything for me right now. I’ve got a Santa Cruz Heckler gathering dust as well, but I can’t come to thinking of parting with that one yet.

Ah well, don’t forget about us down here in recumbent-land. ;)

I pretty much agreed to buy an ’09 Santa Cruz Nomad and head to UT and AZ for a month of product testing/photography…it’s pretty clear to me bents are not fitting into my bikey needs at the moment so I need to let ‘em go….I’ll be back at some point.

I just commited to my raptobike purchase today or this might have caused me some doubts and wavering between options. I am sure someone will enjoy the great deal on this wonderful lowracer.
