Our tandems are built from Reynolds 631 oversize tubing using bronze welded lugless construction, and in the Double Diamond design. This configuration gives a responsive yet rigid frame, adequate for most touring needs and suitable for racing.
Claimed to be even more rigid than the Double Diamond. This model has a bracing tube from the centre of the head through to the rear seat tube with extra stays brazed onto the seat stays above the rear ends. This model is generally recommended for expedition touring. Braze on fittings are as for the Tourist model. It is not practical to build this model in a smaller size than 22”.
