Challege Mistral SL (super light), short wheel base recumbent. Lighter than most recumbents (around 25 lbs. and can be stored more easily). Bike designed for touring rather than speed.

Frame is a combination of butted aluminum in front and carbon fiber in rear; adjustable aluminum boom; aluminum seat.

-Shimano 11-34 cassette with Shimano Deore XT rear derailleur; gear cabling all routed internally
-Shimano Ultegra front derailleur
-Velocity 20-inch rims
-American Classic hubs
-Cane Creek under-seat shock absorber
-Avid BB-5 mechanical disc brakes
-Schwalbe Marathon tires (still the original set of tires on the bike when it was new)
-Chain tubes to protect pants/legs from picking up grease

Bike can be folded down to pack for travel, but folding takes time and derailleur cable needs to be disconnected.

Visible areas of bike are very good cosmetically, but two small dents in areas of the bike that cannot be seen (underside of bike and on seat under seat cushion), and small scrapes on underside of the underseat handle bars.

Radical (Dutch) under-seat panniers included.

150,000 yen. Bike available for inspection prior to purchase; pick up in central Tokyo.
