    My Tandem full squish Mt Bike was stolen, cross post AZ

    Hello
    I ask you to spread this about as I know some has seen it.



    so a little more news it was a custom build, here in Tucson AZ
    It was known as the grasshopper it had 12" of wheel travel a corner.
    each rider had there own Mt bike 18 speed trans and the rig had a hi and low shift for all input
    It was stolen from the down town Tucson ... years ago.

    The movie that was just converted to web from VHS....

    I don't know what it is, but it sure looks *****in'.

    I'm assuming there's a transfer case for the rear passenger (stoker)? Wild. And the dorifto is awesome.

    The stoker has a "8" in the chain then that persons input was combined with the front persons. The combined out put went to the #40 chain driving the rear differential.

    You made me look up the word dorifto, guess it fits. On pavement with two strong riders one could push it hard enough to lift the inside front tire off the road.

    It was also good at flying off jumps and loading dock drops.

    Yes that is my Grasshopper! Thank you!

    I am in contact with the person that has it as of a hour ago, he sounds like a good guy who came by this at a bug swap.

    wow I am so happy !
