Filament carbon tandems

Hello all,
I've been making more custom carbon tandems. The black one is for track racing and the blue one is for gravel riding. I hope you find these photos interesting.

Hi Richard, I thought that I would add another Filament tandem to showcase your workmanship!

Hi all,
I've been busy making more tandems. Each one is different and some of the varied features here are couplers, different calliper mounts, aero tubes, long stoker sections, and even an extra diagonal tube for a track sprint team.
I'm hoping to see some of these competing at the Tokyo Olympics next summer.
Happy riding!

Beautiful bikes. I have a question for you. What is the strategy for having a post on the stoker top tube vs the captain seatpost for the stoker handlebars?

Thank you. The stoker stem and pilot seat post can be adjusted independently and it avoids the risk of twisting the pilot's seat during the starting effort.

Here's my latest work for a team in Sweden. This will hopefully be used at the Tokyo Paralympics, now postponed until 2021.
I hope you're keeping well and still able to ride outdoors this spring time.

Here's my latest work. It's a TT tandem for a national federation. There are some upgrades at the rear with changes to the chainstays and dropouts. The main tubes are a little slimmer too.
Optional 2nd down tube added.
