Well, we've started the process of getting a new road tandem frame built. We had a custom mountain tandem frame built a couple of years ago and figured that it was time to swap out the frame of our crappy Chinese tandem.
We're still staying with a triple drive train and are getting things built into it to allow us to upgrade down the road. e.g. caliper rim brake mounts as well as disc brake mounts.

Finances tightened up a bit on us so I delayed the order. Working through that right now.

It is a Giordano Viaggio. It is not a bad bike just a normal Chinese aluminum frame.
It will be up for sale once I get the new frame in and parts moved over.
