Twin Rider® tandem bicycle
26" wheel - 24-speed
The Twin-Rider tandem bicycle is very light at 48 pounds however because the tandem is made with oversize aluminum alloy tubing, it is very strong. A real plus for a novice or shorter rider is that the minimum stand-over height for the stoker is only about 20". The tandem can accommodate tall and short riders as the alloy seat posts allow for a 9" range of seat height adjustment. With the standard saddles and pedals the stoker inseam can be between 26" and 35" and the captains between 28" and 37". The Twin-Rider has extra sturdy wheels made with double wall alloy 26" rims, large hubs with front and rear quick release and 48 stainless steel spokes (bikes usually have 36 spoke wheels). Tires are top quality semi-slick pattern suitable for road and some off road use. A 24 speed Shimano Acera transmission with 11-34T cassette and Shimano EZ Fire shifters allows for great performance and smooth shifting. The mechanical Shimano front disc brake combined with the rear V-brake provides all the braking power the tandem bike needs. Additional features are: alloy mid-rise handlebar for the captain and a taller 3.25" rise for the stoker; comfortable saddles; large soft grips; and an adjustable stem for the captain and the stoker. The cranks are 7" alloy with chain wheel covers. An alloy kickstand is standard and there are two water bottle locations. The Twin-Rider's high quality features together with a reasonable cost make it a super value. Two people cycling together can add a whole new dimension to their enjoyment of bike riding. Color choices are a beautiful brilliant blue and brilliant red.
