That really looks nice. Now you just have to find some matching yellow water bottles. Your placement of the pump is interesting. We put our pump behind the stoker's seat tube because the space...

Looks great. The gearing look like a big improvement over the arrangement we used for 40+ years.

It does not look like Tom built this bike for a hub brake; however, you can find the necessary...

We put together a tandem based on Tom Ritchey’s Double Switchback frame last March. This replaced the tandem – also made by Tom – we had been riding since 1977. We loved that older tandem and only...

I know your problem

We are one step further along on your decision.

Last March we replaced the tandem we rode for 41 years. Our reasoning was much like yours. We enjoy hill climbing but did not like the marginal...

I don't know if you are familiar with riding in Northern California, but most of the interesting roads involve a lot of climbing. For example, for many years our standard weekend ride was 65 miles...
