Dear CR List Members
   I have a chance to buy a used Alenax bicycle. The price is to be negotiated.The owner was asking $200.00 for a used Alenax.The bicycle is not as rare as the current owner told me....only one of three ever made...... I have found a second source who claims he has 100 NOS,NIB models of the Alenax bicycles,for $200.00 plus shipping My question is are these (ALENAX) a bicycle worth having in a collection if the price is right? JEFF ARCHER AT FIRST FLIGHT BICYCLES HAS A PICTURE OF ONE (ALENAX bicycle) on his website. The bicycles reportedly were made (invented) around 1982 and were a flash in the pan as far as changing the bicycle industry. Any feed back on these "stair stepper" type bicycles would be appreciated from list members "in the know". I saw my first Alenax just two weeks ago while out on a club ride. Yours truly, Martin Walsh in Vienna,Va.
