For Sale: Penelope, Versatile 006
Under 6000km completed before I bought her almost 4 years ago, I have ridden 15500km, so 22000km in total, or less.
As I am no longer riding her (due to Millie the Milan) and my new Quattrovelo will arrive early next year, it’s time to find a new home for Penelope.
Here is her specification:
Rohloff 14 speed
16.5 cm cranks
70mm drum brakes
12V lighting system
2 x B&M 60 Lux lights to the front (upgrades) + one rear light
LED strip red/white lights on the sides.
Mats for the floor
Mount for Garmin (currently for Oregon but can be changed for other Garmins)
Front wheels have Schwalbe Shreddas, rear wheel has Schwalbe Marathon Greenguard.
British flag can be easily removed!!!
Last maintenance April 2015 at Ligfietsshop Tempelman: Rohloff, swing-arm, transmission cables, general check-over. Penelope has not really been used over the last year since I bought my Milan, she has been sitting in a garage, therefore I have decided to sell her.
Bodywork in very good condition for a Velomobile of this age, just scratches on the sides and a small crack on the side towards the nose (repaired from inside and covered with the vinyl wrap). As she is an early model the panel fit isn’t brilliant but she is pretty waterproof in normal usage with the Versatile Roof.
Approximate weight with normal luggage (toolkit, spare tyres etc) 45kg. She is pretty quiet in normal usage (although you do hear the noisy Rohloff gear ratios) and you never get anywhere near the chain, it is completely encapsulated, so you don’t end up oily at all. It is not possible to fit an electric motor to this Velomobile.
In February 2015 we added a vinyl wrap to cover the scratches on both sides (from rolling onto her side) and then also LED lights across the sides. http://www.auntiehelen.co.uk/penelope-gets-a-makeover/
