New LandShark Road/Gravel Travel tandem

Well Santa arrived just in time. This past weekend we visited John Slawta in Southern Oregon to pick up our new Travel tandem. Since we are getting up in age, we asked him to build a Shimano Steps equipped tandem with S&S couplers. Also because John is artistic we gave him free range on the paint job. We were surprised by the colors, but nonetheless very pleased. He said he imagined the bike roaming all over Hawaii and this is the result. I especially like the script "LandShark" on the downtube and stoker top tube.

Really nice tandem. How large a tire could you fit?

i think it could take 38-40 rather easily. We asked him to put on 28s for now as we have no plans to ride it on gravel just yet. But he transmission is definitely geared like a gravel bike.

Great setup and paint job (except for the temp pedals of course !

Curious which mfr/model fork was used?

Also, maybe join the FB - eTandems group and post the pic of your pretty ride... https://www.facebook.com/groups/488732581842946

Regarding the carbon fork, I figured he built it, but next time I speak to him I’ll ask

Its the new larger Shimano 630Wh battery, BT-E8016. While heavy, it gives the most range. After 1 week of use I think we get about 60-70 miles of range when only using low to middle assist for climbs and headwinds.
