    Surly Tandem

    Yeah. I'd be hyped on a 1x1 tandem. Simple, cheap, single-speed tandem awesomeness. Just sayin'...

    It would probably be best if it was like a Troll so that it was a little more versatile. While the tandem market is limited, one that was as versatile as a Troll would be pretty cool. I doubt they'd ever make it.

    But if one is gonna dream, why not a tandem version of the Moonlander...

    It does make more sense to just have it be fat. You already have a wide rear hub spacing. Tandem compatible Mr Whirly?

    +1, I'd dig a Troll / Ogre tandem.
    Ride more!

    Was searching for "surly tandem" when i came upon this old thread

    The 2.75 dirt wizard tires work so well on my wife's 1x1 such that it made me think maybe a 1x1 style frame, or better yet a troll-style one to allow for gears (and also also allow singlespeed use), can be made into a tandem and, with clearance for semi-fat 2.75 tires, the ride will be awesome

    Full-fat tires will be overkill and so heavy for the type of tandem rides we do in my part of the world, but will definitely be a head-turner :-)
