M5 CHR Recumbent

Bought in 2015 & used for 9 months. I then went back to DF riding.

The spec is standard frameset with medium seat stool.
Sram X0 Gripshift 3x10
Sram Rival long cage mech
Shimano 105 triple front mech
Shimano Ultegra 12-30 cassette
Shimano 105 50x34 chainset with 150mm cranks
Campag lateral pull front brake, Tetro dual pivot rear
H Plus Son rims (20F 28R) on Dura Ace rear hub & Bitec Front
I also have a rear mudguard, home made headrest & a bag which fits over the back of the seat to carry tools, tubes, pump, food & 1 litre Camelback.

I'm looking for around £1500. I see that the M5 frameset alone is now 2750 Euros.
Located near Oxford.

Any questions, just ask.

Hi Peter,
Essential not to have any clash between the end of the crank & the tyre. I'm 5' 11" with an inseam of 33" & there is a gap of 35mm. This is helped a lot by using the shorter cranks (also a lot kinder on the knees). The seat is also drilled for mounting 45mm further forward which would give a lot more room.

I think I’m m too small based on that info.

I’m just less than 5’6”
