This is mine in its current state. Its a Rivendell Hubbuhubbuh . It was in the bottom floor of my house that was flooded in Hurricane Ida. The fork, headset, and eccentric got put in the dumpster with the soaked box. I was able to purchase a raw fork from Rivendell. The frame and fork will be getting a new matching paint job.
The hard part has been finding a box to ship the frame in. No local bike shops have any tandem boxes and I'm worried two normal boxes taped together will just break apart. I think I may wrap it well in bubble wrap and see if the UPS store can find something to fit it into.

Here's a video on packing your tandem with 2 regular bike boxes. They just tape it heavily. I've put 2 boxes together with zip ties which has worked well. Just poke a couple of holes through both boxes when you have them lined up and run a zip tie through them. Of course you still want to bubble wrap or some other wrap the frame in the box, but if you are just shipping a frame and not a bunch of parts there is not much there to ruin your paint job.

Thanks, I'll probably try that.

Thanks, I'll look into that.

Here is our first tandem. Told the wife we would see if this is something she would be interested in doing on a regular basis since I cannot get her on her single very often. It's a 1993 Santana Vision. I will need to change out the brake pads to get us into a better stopping place. We upgraded the saddles to Selle Anatomica and she is more comfortable. We are looking into new handlebars for her as she hates the drops. The wife is having fun so far and is looking forward to longer rides. She is a social butterfly and loves the attention it gets from folks.

For the type of riding we do these days it works great. The rear caliper is a Paul's. Toying with the idea of trying a different rotor. If we ever start doing steep stuff again, we may go with a disc up front. Our previous tandem had a front disc, and we dearly miss it descending. Anything over 40 mph gets uncomfortable.
