    ryan duplex tandem

    Hi!

    I am looking at buying a used Ryan Duplex Tandem. I havenít found much on the internet about them and was hoping someone might give me some insight and what a fair price would be. The seller thinks it was made in 2000Öthe tubes are square. The following are the specs.

    Rear Derailleur: SRAM SX long cage, 1:1 (Accurate Shifting!!!)
    Front Derailleur: Shimano 105
    Shifters: SRAM ESP 9.0 Grip Shifters (3 front, 9 rear)
    Handlebars: New conventional bars, chrome,
    Front Chainring: Triple 28-39-48
    Rear Cassette: 11-34, 9 speed
    Cranks: Sugino 450, 170mm
    Rear Wheel: Rim being replaced....., 559 diameter, 36 spoke, Shimano Deore LX Hub
    Rear Tire: Kenda Kwest 40-559, 100psi
    Front Wheel: Sun CR18, 406 diameter, 36 spoke, Shimano Deore LX Hub
    Front Tire: Kenda Kwest, 50-406, 100 psi
    Brakes: V-brakes, not sure what brand, Handles, same thing...
    Headset: Shimano Deore LX
    Stem Extension: Chromoly tube....this is strong.....
    Pedals: I will supply the original platform rat traps that came with these. I added clipless after I got it and will want to keep my clipless pedals.
    Seats: AD Carson Fabricated seats, adjustable with two socket head cap screws on each seat. Tilt is adjusted with a telescoping boom on the captain seat and two threaded rods on the stoker seat.
    New chain.

    Tiller: 12.5". Grip to Grip: 24".
    Stoker seat height: 24.5"
    Captain seat height: 23.5"
    Weight: 50#
    Wheelbase: 96"

    I would appreciate any advice.

    Thanks.

    I PM'd ya as well, but contacting Greg @ www.longbikes.com (actually just get the number and
    call) and I bet he can answer any questions you have, seeing as Ryan is now Longbikes. Greg is
    very knowledgeable on the older Ryan stuff...
