For about three years I've been riding my Streetstrider outdoor elliptical bike at Minto Brown park several times a week. I've gotten countless (more or less) smiles, thumbs-up, and positive comments:
"Cool!" "Looks like fun!" "I want one!"
Well, that I want one sentiment is now much more easily within grasp. I've donated my yellow 8-speed Streetstrider to The Northwest Hub, a not-for-profit community bicycle co-op here in Salem.
So here's your chance to get a great deal on my 3-year-old Streetstrider AND help out The Northwest Hub, a Salem organization that enables low-income and no-income people to own a bike and be able to get around town.
Watch this video that I made to learn about the Streetstrider and The Northwest Hub.
I donated my Streetstrider to The Northwest Hub because I like what they're doing. I'm also helping them find a buyer for the bike. Yeah, it's a strange bike, but it's strange in some wonderful ways. Lots of fun to ride. Terrific exercise. Gets lots of attention from adults and kids alike.

The Streetstrider comes with a 2-inch hitch rack that I used to transport the bike. It also comes with an Indoor Trainer accessory that I've never used. This lets you use the Streetstrider as an indoor elliptical bike. I'll be glad to give the buyer of the Streetstrider some riding and maintenance tips.
The suggested price, which basically is a donation to The Northwest Hub, is $595. The 8-speed Streetstrider 8r and hitch rack cost me about $2,000 three years ago. It's in good condition. Plus, you get the Indoor Trainer, a $200 value.
