    There is the Ritchey Tandem, as well as a few other "vintage" rides too,

    I did have a set of 700 cross wheels set up that can go on Mary or Papa , with Studs for winter, and can slip some slicks for summer... so both bikes can share the wheels Still have to put an adaptor on the Sugar for the 7 inch front rotor, it will be in next week

    I love the Mary, i switched out the mechanical avids for some Hayes nines, so both the 29'rs are set with the same set up, The 255 weirwolfs roll smooth and float well in the snow, I can through the studs on for ice rides, with the spare wheel set. Love the steel, and was pretty happy with her right out of the box. I am considering putting a mary ss in the swag prize pool for the cycleo de mayo

    Cool.

    The new GF frames are very cool. I love my 2006 Cake 3, but this is giving me the fever.

    Yet another reason to make a trip north in May.

    And if you ever decided to sell that tandem, give me a call. That is beautiful. I love the fork that is on it - one of the best looking forks ever made.

    It is a beautiful peice of functional art for sure, You will have to take the Tandem out for a spin ! a little long for tight singletrack,, but can rail with a good capt and stoker. My bigest worry in May is how much Time I will have to ride as "Master of Ceremonies" But I am actually off from the 3'rd through the 6th for trail marking and post event clean up. So I will get lots of trail time regardless

    I really like the Dual Rear brake as well with the roller cam and Canti with a toggle in the lever, That rear brake lever is HUGE

    That's a pretty cool set up. Did you request that, or did Tom do that on all of his tandems at that time?

    The color of yours matches mine pretty well (pictured in the hills above Boise).

    Wow! Love that tandem!

    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    Tom did dual brakes until 5, before the roller cams, he did a drum with canti. In 86 he switched to single rear brake. The lateral changes as well in that period from a split lateral to the axle to a lateral to the base of the rear seat tube.

    You and I must ride the same size

    I did order my Timber comp with front and rear rollers, and the custom fade imron, as well as having the pump painted to match from the factory.. You can see it in this pic I think.

    Love the shot of yours with the panniers! I run a set myself from time to time and on commutes.
