    tandem photos

    I'm sort of new to this forum and to tandem cycling. I noticed this on the road bike and MTB forum, and I haven't seen it here.

    I would love to see pics of your tandem, as I don't really know what's out there. POST them! Please!

    My wife and I recently acquired a 1960's Columbia Twosome. We have had a blast riding our rusted piece of metal. It doesn't do well on hills though. I'll post some pics of it as soon as I take some.

    Here are a few pictures of our 1991 Burley Duet. The captains bars are bullhorns and the stoker has drops because that is what each of us prefers. That's Mount Rainier in the first picture.

    Wow, some good looking tandems!

    I don't have any "good" photos yet, but here are just a couple I have thus far as I'm a new tandem captain as of the past couple months.

    Well we already want to upgrade for longer rides. But the Fuji is a nice entry level around the neighborhood bike. It's a 21" captain, and a bit small for me, but fits my wife great. We would like nice pure road Tandem, maybe a Cannondale next year in a better fitting size.

    P.S. That 2002 Erickson S&S Travel Tandem is beautiful...

    Did that one come with the drop handlebars or did you put those on?

    1998 Cannondale MT3000



    ~2000 Ventana El Conquistador de Montanas

    Drop bars were standard.

    Mainly used off road, but as its a Dale MT2000 set up with Hope Mono M4 brakes, 200mm discs, Hope Big un Hubs on Mavic Downhill rims and Rockshox Boxers that have been set up for the Tandem, I suppose that is where it should be. Latest addition is a Cane Creek Thudbuster, but not had time to abuse it yet

    Very nice! Is that a carbon fiber frame? Also I notice you are the only one so far who is running the cranks out of phase.

    I should take a more current photo, but here's an older shot of ours.

    [edit] I've just uploaded a photo taken today, so this image is now current. Not much in the way of changes, just a few minor things, and the seats adjusted.

    It's titanium, with S&S couplers, titanium bars, SRAM X9, Shimano 203mm discs with Avid brakes. Nothing special in the US, but pretty rare for Australia.

    No, just the only one so far who's tandem was photographed while the cranks were out of phase.... We're switch hitters; depends on the terrain, purpose of the ride, how we feel, etc...

    Cheg: ariZona tandem is a custom c/f built by Bob Davis in Peoria, AZ. We've been pedalin' OOP since 1977.
    We are also probably one of the few tandemistas who still use toeclips . . . whatever floats your boat!
    OOPers are a bit in the minority in the tandemworld, but have persuaded other duos to at least try it, with the majority being in favor.
    Dubbelop (two-up) . . . is dit Marten van the Nederlandse Tandem Club?
