This is the second Double Vision that we have owned and there is not a much more comfortable bike to ride. We are only selling it because I am not as stable on the stops as I used to be and we will be getting a recumbent tandem trike to replace this ride. I am the 2nd owner of this bicycle. It was originally purchased in Chicago. I brought it to Indianapolis, Indiana and only rode it for one season. This bike does NOT have Independent Pedaling System (IPS) but I love the under seat steering which is very comfortable for long rides. This also a very fast bike that is lightweight. I have a carrier for sale too if you need one of those as well.
The Vision R-8X tandem recumbent is a great bike that was made by Advanced Transportation Products (ATP) in Washington State. The seats and boom adjusts to fit a Captain that is up to 6’4” all the way to 5’4”! The rear seat will adjust to fit riders under 4’8″ and up to 6″+. The flexibility in sizing helps this bike fit most any size It is very comfortable and rides well. The long monotube frame flexes enough to smooth out bumpy roads making this an extremely comfortable. If you have not ridden one before, you will need to experience it for yourself.

The TCA cannot guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of any ad placed on this website. Therefore, buyers should be mindful that internet-based transactions — long distance, or in person, have certain inherent risks. Buyers and Sellers are both at risk for theft by fraud and any face-to-face meetings also present risks related to theft as well as personal safety. Please take time to do some research about buying and selling from one of the many articles that you’ll find on line, such as one of these:
http://www.kbb.com/car-advice/articles/protecting-yourself-from-online-fraud/ (it applies to bikes also)
You may also want to think about the following (courtesy of Mark Livingood):
Ideally, most buyers and sellers prefer to find one another in close enough proximity to permit a face-to-face meeting, a physical inspection of the tandem and, of course, a test ride; perhaps even an extended test ride. Fortunately, at least in all my dealings with private sellers, buyers and tandem-specialty dealers or builders, long distance transactions have always been quite pleasant and ended up with no surprises. So, while there is some degree of risk, if you’re willing to trust your “gut” on a long distance transaction neither you nor the other party should end up being any worse for wear if everyone keeps their cards on the table throughout the transaction.
NOTE: A detailed sales contract should be drawn up for all long distance transactions. Language should be included that spells out all provisions regarding who has responsibility for the tandems shipment, under what conditions the buyer may decline to accept the tandem at the time of delivery and who will bear the responsibility for shipping costs. As an example, sales agreements should plainly state if the seller clearly mis-represented the condition or features of the tandem, or it was damaged in route, they bear the burden for a remedy subject to approval by the buyer. If the buyer simply changes their mind for any reason and no longer wants the tandem, they bear the burden for all shipping costs. In some cases, buyers and sellers may want to use a trusted, local bike shop as an agent for receiving and inspecting the tandem to protect their mutual interests.
The use of a third party escrow service may also aid your transaction.
