    Vintage Tandems?

    '88 or so Ritchey Skyliner. This is my first tandem, so I have nothing to compare it to, but it's stable, smooth and rides like a dream.Vintage Tandems?-imageuploadedbytapatalk1372692379.806161.jpg

    Is 1990 vintage?

    Seek: Koski Trailmaster. Breezer Series 2, or 3. Fillet brazed Ibis Custom. Cunningham Racer. Otis Guy (but not that softride model). That's all I need I don't need anything else... except... except for an old Mountain Goat bar stem combo. And that's all I need. I don't need anything else. Except.....

    Bought new at R/E in 90!

    Old picture. Outside of the skinny tires that is very close to the original build.
    Still hanging in the garage, been through several different builds. Some years it get's ridden a lot others not so much. Depends on whats going on in my life.

    I'm curious to know how a Duke fork designed for a single bike handles tandem duty. Are you running extra stiff springs and thick damping fluid?

    Impressive, and it obviously gets used off-road.

    That Duke would make me nervous. Glad it's holding up.

    Agreed Shawn. Some of my most memorable rides have been on the tandem. From cruising around the neighborhood with my mom, to trying to pass singles on some narrow singletrack.
