    Thanks for the kind words. We love this bike too. Letting this one go will prevent me from doing something stupid and re-injure myself.

    We still are keeping our road tandem and full suspension tandem. This should pose less risk to my back. Ideally it will be real good when healed, but from talking with others who have similar injuries, it can be a long way to get back and even then you MUST be more careful not to injure it again. I have no plans to ride off-road until healed. Plans for road riding are not even considered yet and will be easy rides for a while.

    With luck, someone will buy a nice Fandango with a good build, their purchase will absolutely keep me off a hardtail tandem MTB a lot longer.

    If only I had a DeLorean with a Flux Capacitor...

    FWIW, this 2x9 setup is easily made into a 3x9 setup. Add an outer ring and replace the 2x9 SLX front derailleur. Depending upon the team, they might also consider swapping the 36 tooth current big ring into a 34 tooth middle if it becomes a 3x9, The shifter and cable is already 3x9 capable.

    One nice feature of running a proper 2x9 front setup is this is the best shifting bicycle, in regards to front shifts, I have ever ridden. The change from big to small or small to big is quick and precise.

    If not having a 3x9 is a stumbling block, I will build it into a proper 3x9 if needed.

    No doubt the fork has some folks worried. I can reduce the price and remove the fork allowing the new owner to install the fork of their choice, or if you buy the fork and get the fork here, I'll install it.

    If you like the bike but not the price, ask, maybe you will have an offer I like.

    It is a fun, dependable bike. Needs a new home.

    Ya gotta stop poppin' wheelies on the tandem! It's really hard on the back. Sorry you have to let your baby go. There will always be more bikes to buy and build when the time is right.
    May the air be filled with tires!

    Wheelies, ironically our old now gone MT3000 did ride a wheelie during a steep climb on John Brown at Santos. Also we've had one tandem airborne, that was pretty cool. Actually the injury is just cumulative of several.

    As for more bikes to buy and build, no doubt.

    I just hope someone that can really use this machine is the buyer. This bike can run and will with the right team.

    I really don't want to part it out...but that DT 540 rear hub is tempting me to build some race wheels for the road tandem.

    Not sure how it happened or when, but somehow MTBR changed my listing to "SOLD". This is incorrect and the Tandem is still available.

    If interested send me a PM.

    Tandem is relisted in the MTBR classifieds today. Not sure why or how it was shown as sold, but it is still available.

    Rob, it may be the most economical deal for you...I know you have no money, but you would save big on shipping being local. Plus the bike could make you faster since it already knows the cool tandem trails locally and up through central Florida.

    As a free bonus I'll let you know, this bike is not afraid of Alligators.

    The market seems slow unless I want to give it away.

    Is there any interest in the frame, fork, or other components?.

    Considering some options, including parting it out.

    If the interest was there, I could easily make the change to a 3x9.

    I'd love something like that, but as a grad student won't be able to afford it for a couple years, until I've got a real job. Good luck selling it, and I hope for your sake you don't still have it when I've got the money to buy

    Make an offer. It's just sitting here not being used.

    tandem fandango

    Hi,
    I'm interested in your tandem. I tried to PM you but as a new user the site won't let me.... quite frustrating.
    I live in Michigan. I gather the bike is in Florida. I have access to a friend of a friends fandango that I will demo this weekend. I'm concerned about frame size for my wife and I. I am 6'1", she is 5'2".
    I'll be in touch, or feel free to call me. or cell 231-620-0526
    If the frame size is right, it checks out with a bike shop, and you are willing to wiggle a little on price, this might work out.

    Dan

    Dan, I am not sure if you got through to PMK w/your PM but I can tell you I am about your size, my stoker is only slightly taller than yours, and we ride a large Fandango like PMK's. FYI, Paul is a bit shorter than me and he claims he has short legs. This weekend I tried my friend's new (small) Fandango and I really didn't feel much difference in the standover. What I did notice was the length. Way too short for me. You need the room in the cockpit for both captain and stoker. I really noticed this when we got a road tandem and stoker was up in my business more than usual. PMK's rig should fit you well. Good luck, Jamie

    Back is healing and I am being well behaved by not riding off-road until some official promises to the stoker are fulfilled.

    If we do TDF again, I'm riding the KTM as a solo rider. She can ride something else.
