    Meile Lupa Triple Tandem

    Hi all,
    I am hoping somebody may be able to help me out.
    We have a Meile Lupa Triple Tandem. And would like to find out more information on it.
    It has Decals that say "Made in Canada" and they look to be original. But these days I know that anybody could have added them. I have searched the web without any luck. And have worked my way through this forum without finding any info out on this bike. The only Meile I know of is a white goods company, that if I recall correctly is French? and not sure if they are the same company who built these tandems.
    It does not have any high end parts and is a steel frame. And Has 130mm rear dropout. Am after new cranks as an upgrade, But know nothing about what BB it may have and how comaptible the new cranks would need to be? Still looking and learning.
    Great fun, but am interested to know more about who built and how many there may have been out there.

    Any info is Greatly Appreciated, Thank you
    Austke

    Believe you miss-spelled the name of the company . . . it is not Meile . . .
    but Miele which (to our knowlwedge) is a Canadian company that builds bicycles.
    However have never heard of them building/selling tandems/triples.
    Looks like a fun setup you have there!
    Pedal on!

    Yes, you are right with the spelling, too many coffees
    sounds like the same company. low to mid spec grouppo on it.
    But yes, very fun. picked it up of Ebay for about $350, if I remember correctly.
    Thx 4 the info.

    Yes it was a "buy it now price" on Ebay from some charity company that had used it one in a 60Km ride. so at 11pm one night I noticed it had listed only a couple of minutes prior, to me seeing it, So I jumped on it. Hard to find Tandems, let alone Triples here in OZ. Impossible to find Santana, Como, Calfee and the like for sale here.
    And being Winter here now, low 20degrees celsius, right now, any hot drink is good, I'm freezing.
