Test ride a 26/20 bent in the GA/SC region

I'm looking to purchase a 26/20 bent for my wife. I would appreciate an oppurtun ity for her to test ride your 26/20. I can be a Bacchetta Giro 20, Rans V-Rex, Volae Tour or any other 26/20 format. You don't have to have one for sale - just one that's available for a test ride. We'll worry about finding one for sale later. Of course if you do have one for sale, that would be a plus. We live in Augusta, GA so we would like for the test ride to be within a 4-5 hour drive, if possible.

I understand that if you are looking for the Giro20 you are looking for a short wheel base.

I checked on the bacchetta site again. You might want to try...

I have a Giro 20, but I think that Little Rock is a bit far to drive.

Found a bent

We went to Greenville and bought a Giro 20 from Scott at TTR.

Great Bike!! I bought mine in June and have over 1100 miles on it and am absolutely in love with it. Since buying the bike, I have ridden my first metric century and doing my first century in two weeks. It is nice to ride a bike for 6 hours without any pain whatsoever.
