"This is a very fun 2 person bike made my Cignal Melbourne Express. It is in good condition and will turn heads when cycling down the street with a friend. Two person bikes are pretty rare and Charleston is the perfect city to own one. Contact me if you are interested, thanks!"

Have a double or a triple on demand!

https://richmond.craigslist.org/bik/6033650894.html

Bike Friday Family Triple Traveler or Tandem - $1200 (near west end)




condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Bike Friday
model name / number: Family Triple Traveler


This bike can either be a triple or a tandem. So it is both depending on what you want. If you are a bike whiz - you can quickly go from double to triple. As you can see in the video below. It comes with all the parts, and longer chain to go to the triple.

We have loved this bike - it was a birthday present for me so we could ride longer distances with our kids, we biked to school and even took it with us on vacations. Because of the way it comes apart we could fit it inside our van. The bike also grows as you kids grow which is genius. But now our kids now ride their own bikes often faster and farther than I can. We do still use it but not enough to justify keeping it. These are very hard to find, I could not find one for sale anywhere. Bike Friday does not make the triple anymore but they do still work with them and will help you with any issues or customizations you may need. New they ran about $3700+. The photo show it set as triple and tandem- currently ours is set up as the tandem (that is our against the wooden garage doors).

The original Family Tandem was designed by Cofounder Alan Scholz to be a family heirloom bike -- a sturdy, reliable tandem that can be handed down from generation to generation. The Family Tandem Triple Traveler sports adjustability, allowing it to be set up as a tandem for two adults or an adult and a child or as a triple. Kids and other stokers feel at home closer to the ground, and the small wheels make it easier to handle for the Captain. The Family Tandem can adjust as a child grows. The beauty of Bike Friday tandems shines in the ride, which is enhanced by 20 inch wheels and easy step over tube. The Family Tandem does not fold, but can be disassembled easily to fit into two Samsonite Travel Cases for easy airline travel. We also could easily remove the front stem to get it to fit into our van to transport as a tandem.

Additions included : Pedal extenders, we started our daughter very young so we opted for pedal extenders so she could initially reach the pedals at 6 years old. Different front stem: we are both tall and needed more clearance so Bike Friday made us a custom stem to give us more space -- but we have both stems. The people at Bike Friday are wonderful. Computer: VDO, and two spare tires.

We used this video to go from tandem to triple.

Interesting sight on the local CL today, three tandems visible onscreen at the same time. Don't see this every day. The Cannondale is priced at $1800.

There are a ton of nice tandems on central-northern California Craigslist right now, including a triplet Friday for $1500 in SLO, a 2010 Cannondale for $500 in Sebastopol, a coupled Santana for $1300 in Cayucos, a $300 hybrid KHS from the v-brake era in West Sac, three Paramounts...

...and the usual slate of 27" Burleys and Santanas dying on the vine, which I guess will soon be joined by V-brake 26ers.

Craigslist tandem search link

It would be cheap af to get onto a tandem around here right now. I have this idea you could run a business rebuilding 27" Suntour tandems into 700c Shimano bikes, but I guess the price wouldn't be something anyone wanted to pay.

Think of it as a "sociable," one of those side-by-side tandems.
