Tandem Bicycles

On this page: Cannondale 21" x 19" tandem | XL Santana Noventa | 53.5cm x 47 cm Burley Samba Tandem

A well-designed and well-made tandem is a joy to ride. And making a good tandem isn't simple. It requires both art and science to make a bike that is both comfortable and yet stiff enough to withstand the force and weight of two riders on two wheels. The tandems we have for sale are from builders with extensive experience in creating bicycles built for two. They have well-earned reputations for making excellent tandems.
