    1989 Racing tandem

    I found this article in a 1989 Winning magazine. It was interesting how much more specialized tandems have become over the last 20 years.

    hehe! It was a simpler time ...

    All those components were basically the same as I ran on my singles around that time - Campy hubs, mavic 36 hole GP4 rims, Superbe derailleurs, and around that time I'd have had Campy calipers, a Suntour New Winner freewheel and sawn-off handlebars with Suntour bar-end shifters!

    Actually, most of that, except the later Suntour stuff, was the equipment on my buddy's Bob Jackson tandem that I used to stoke on back in 1974. Just standard Campy with Suntour rear der and bar-end shifters, SuperChamp Arc-en-Ciel rims, 36 hole, tied-and-soldered.

    Me too, I ran some of almost everything in the 80's. Most of my bikes were pieced together from whatever someone else at the local bike shop didn't want. To long a story. Come to think of it, my bikes today are still somewhat like that....

    Co-Motion referred to that frame design as 'tri-lateral.'
    Nice/stiff design.
    Designed a custom one like that for folks who really needed something special. He: 6 foot 7 inches; her: 5 foot 3 inches. Also utilized Bullseye eliptical cross-over chainrings with custom crankarms for pilot at 220 mm! Needless to say had to design it with a higher than normal BB.
    That tandem's still being ridden today with over 30,000 miles on it.
    Pedal on TWOgether!
