Hello everyone!!! My wife and I got a Burly tandem MTB late summer of 2012. All her idea ...
I have been doing gravel grinders for quite sometime and she was looking to get into it as well. So we decided a tandem might be the ticket. So far so good.
We picked the bike up cheap. Had to do some nessasery upgrades for fit and cool factor. The bike hadn't been ridden much at all. I think its about a 1999-2002. Now that we have logged a good chunk of miles before putting her away for the winter.(Wife don't ride when it's cold. We live in the mid west.) I have been toying with the notion of a whee lset up grade along with going to a 9 speed. Currently the stock wheels are a 40 hole Weinmann. With the age of the bike and the lack of care from the previous owners the rear wheel is damn near impossiable to true. The spoke nipples are so corroded.
So with all that babble what would be good recommdations for wheels and hubs. I do ride for a local team/shop so I can get parts at a good price and have a few guys who build great wheels for me.
We ride gravel and dirt roads 95% of the time. Very little single track I'm working on getting her comfertable on the trails. Its a work in progress
