This is the touring and commuting-specific recumbent bike I rode from Korea to Switzerland from July 2006 until April 2007; a journey of just under 12,000km across Asia, Central Asia, Caucuses, the Middle East, and Europe, as part of a 25,000km around the world journey by bicycle and skateboard.

The website of the journey is at To see photos of the bike during the journey, click here:

The bike is in very good mechanical condition; I serviced the drive train every few months of travel. A few surface scratches are present, of course - some of the roads I took were very rough (

The bike was bought new in January 2006 for NZ$6,500. It is a high spec version of the standard GTe, and is set up specifically for touring. Includes quality Ortlieb panniers and SPD pedals.

I am not presently in New Zealand at the moment, but will be in Christchurch to pick the bike up and take it to Auckland on the 13th of July. Please email me at if you are interested in viewing the bike in Christchurch or Auckland.
