We have a Ritchey Double Switchback Breakaway tandem. We are running Spinergy 700C wheels from House of Tandems. It has done some long gravel rides on towpaths in France and some cow paths in the Scottish Highlands.

It is setup as a flat bar touring bike. I am running Hope V4 brakes with the vented rotor in the rear. I originally used Hope E4 brakes and they were not up to the job. I contacted Hope and they told me in no uncertain terms to switch to the V4.

It has also done some MTB single track in France when Google Maps sent us down a MTB trail when the EuroVelo6 route was less than 1 mile away! That was not fun at all, but we made it.
