So, I've finally decided to sell my 'bent baby.   :'(

It's a relatively rare carbon fiber (with aluminum lugs) midracer that I bought about a decade ago from boomerbents.  It's super fast and I've been dutifully having it tuned up every year except for this year even though I don't get to ride it anymore.

The picture is a little out of date in that the seat has been replaced with a carbon fiber seat + Ventisit seat pad & head rest and the handlebars are now more bacchetta aero style instead of the tiny "praying mantis" style shown in the pic.  Also, there is a digital speedometer/odometer mounted. 

I *did* wipe out ONCE on it (going too fast on the Columbia Scenic Highway), so the carbon fiber seat has some scratches (but nothing that would compromise the structural integrity). 

I'm not sure of the weight, but it's LIGHT, and FAST.  I am not a regular rider, but the last time I hopped on it after a couple YEARS off, I was able to maintain about 20 mph (average) on rolling hills for 24+ miles without any trouble.. 
 
Asking $1500. 

For more details, contact me via email as I'm not on OHPV much.  Email: themastercha@gmail.com

Thanks!

Recumbent Retreat / Re: 2017 Recumbent Retreat Registration is now OPEN :-)

Note received from WagonMaster Todd:

Okay people.. It's crunch time.
Registration for Recumbent Retreat 2017 will be closing Sept. 1st. This will be for both camping and non-camping registration, because we use the same on-line site for both. We will still accept event registration at the group site (F215) on the days of the event.
So PLEASE get off your butt "Jeff" and get online and register. We have plenty of sites available to fit any need.
I'm putting the final touches on the site assignments. I'll be sending out notifications soon. Here's your chance to add any preferences or requests for your site location.

Board Announcements / OHPV Meeting Wednesday August 16, 2017
« Last post by vangundy on August 16, 2017, 09:49:23 PM »
Minutes from the meeting of August 16th

Present were Lonnie (Acting President as Edna was ill) Jeff, Brandon, Todd, Pat Franz and Dave VG

1st item, the review of a new LOGO.  Brandon presented several possibilities and we are working to the final solution
2nd item, The Recumbent Retreat.  Discussed why reservations were "light". Figured it was a combination of web problems, date change and that people have been attending for the last ten years with only minor changes..
  Ride maps will be provided by Jeff. The only ride leader will be Lonnie M. for the in PARK trike tour, otherwise, follow the maps. The Lighted bike parade will be led by Jeff W.
  OHPV will provide water for the Potluck.
  We will have Door Prizes. If people would like to donate "lightly used" items as door prizes they will be accepted. We will have a "FREE" table for items people want to part
  with ;-).
  Registration will be Friday from 9 to 12 (noon) and 4 to 8.
  Treasure Hunt will be placed by Todd M.
  Potluck Set-up will be by Edna and Dave VG
  HATS have been ordered and are in process.
 If anyone would like to volunteer they won't be refused. This event is run by volunteers and many hands make for a light work load.
3rd item, discussed various future rides including the 3rd Annual Kirke Johnson Banks/Vernonia ride on Sunday Sept 3rd.
  Also discussed was having the "RIDE WAIVER" signed to limit the Club liability.
Respectfully submitted,
Dave VG (Acting ASST Sect)
