ExHire – Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem

ExHire – Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem

  ExHire – Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem Purpose made, the Draisen range of mobility and access bikes are some of the finest, toughest and most capable around. We have had our Quest88 supplied Draisin Wheel Chair Tandem on the hire fleet for four years, and it has been a fantastic enabler helping people enjoy the open air. Despite this, the tandem has had low use and has not been used at all in the 2016 hire season, so it is with regret that we have decided to sell the bike. We will however re-invest in a range of different kit such as youth/adult tags, stabilisers, support seats or a trike (if a suitable one can be found), so that we may still enable those with limited mobility to join in the fun of cycling. We are looking for offers and will consider part exchanges for the right kit. Price:...

Storm, more aggressive styling and full suspension makes this bike great fun on rough tracks and at soaking up pot holes.
