We are the proud owners of two well cared for, similarly equipped Bike Friday New World Tourists from the 90s. We've decided to switch models after all these years, so we're offering up our well-loved steeds for sale to make room.
The bikes are currently in the hands of the factory, who recently refurbished them, including new cables and housing, bar tape, and chains. Bike Friday will professionally package them and ship them to your location. Standard shipping within the contiguous United States is included in the price. Can ship worldwide for additional cost.
Both bikes feature a 56cm effective top tube, which coincides with Bike Friday's current standard medium size. That said, they should fit a wide range of riders.
These bikes are premium wide range 21 speeds with h-bars for multiple hand positions for long rides. With sealed cartridge bearings, front and rear rack mounts, fender mounts, and 3 water bottle mounts, these are ideal bikes for touring or commuting. They have certainly served us well and we're sure they will serve you well, too.
