SOLD Mike Burrows Ratracer SL for sale

by chris_n   June 1, 2013  

Mike Burrows Ratracer SL recumbent for sale.

Ideal starter 'bent - very easy to ride with stable handling, low maintenance drivetrain and reliable brakes. Easily adjustable to suit any height rider. Front wheel drive makes for short efficient drivetrain - no real issues with traction, even on damp 10% climbs. Offset rear wheel looks odd but makes no difference to handling and greatly simplifies construction. Wide ratio gear hub gives good range of gears. Very good condition - mostly dry mileage only, new tyres and tubes fitted recently, gears and brakes serviced before the winter and pretty much unridden since October.

Number 12 of 12 production models (+ 1 prototype)
Custom aluminium frame and steel fork.
Carbon seat with Ventisit pad.
24" wheels - 507-40 front, 520-23 rear.
Front wheel drive - 8 speed Alfine with Nexus gripshift, 150mm cranks.
Front brake - Alfine hydraulic, rear - single sided drum.
New tyres - Schwalbe Kojak front, Schwalbe Durano rear.

£1100 - viewing and test rides encouraged. Located in South Derbyshire. Courier possible but likely to be expensive - collection preferred.

Also included in price: Radical Designs Solo Aero tailbag, FastBack Carbon Slim seatbag, original Burrows seat, carbon head rest, side stand/light mount, touch-up paint, bottle cage fitted to frame and offset rear mudguard.

Thanks! Lovely, isn't it? Doesn't get ridden though, so it's got to go. Also listed on vv, ctc, bhpc and yacf.

Don't suppose you have any recumbent panniers for sale?

That's the last part of my kit I am after Devil

No, sorry - just what you can see in the pics above. The Solo Aero might fit?
