Bike Friday Twin Air Q - Ad ID JAMESE

March 23

For sale is a 2005 Bike Friday Twin Air "Q". This bike is a very limited edition from Green Gear Cycling in Eugene, Oregon. The titanium seat beams flex just enough to provide a great suspension ride, but the main trick is the ability to transform into a single bike, and as most Bike Friday cycles, they break down easily into suitcases for traveling.

There were very few of the Twin Air bikes built, and even fewer of the "Q" models. It always turned heads wherever we rode and kept up with any of the big wheel tandems out there. I ordered this bike so my daughter and I could ride the RAGBRAI ride in 2005 before I deployed to Iraq. In later years it was ridden in the Honolulu Century ride in 2006, RAGBRAI in 2015 and 2016 and the RAIN ride in 2017 in tandem mode, and my daughter rode RAGBRAI 2014 in single mode. My daughter is grown with children of her own now, and I ride my Bike Friday Air Llama, so the tandem sits idle and needs a new life.

The bike is in very good shape, and it comes with two suitcases with packing materials. If one is clever, it can fit into just one suitcase.

The drive is a SRAM Dual Drive with a 9-speed cog (11-32). The beauty of the SRAM is being able to shift the 3-speed hub easily and quietly even under some load. The low gear is such that we never walked this bike up any hill. The bike is also very stable at speed, reaching 55.2 mph on one ride and braking quite adequately, even without disk brakes.

Included with the bike is the wireless speedometer, lights and saddles, as well as manuals for most of the components that came on the bike.

Price: $2,500 OBO.

The bike is located in Greenwood, IN. I will be glad to negotiate shipping arrangements with prospective buyers. It packs into two suitcases, roughly one half in each. The suitcases measure about 31 x 22 x 12. The bike weighs, total, about 36 lbs, and the cases are about 15 lbs each with packing materials.

Calfee Dragonfly - Ad ID Steven

March 13

We bought this tandem five years ago used from a guy in southern CA. It has a couple of scratches and nicks, but nothing that is very noticeable until you look really closely. We paid to the have the lifetime warranty on the frame transferred to us by Calfee. I think they are still doing that, so you could do the same.

We have only ridden it a few hundred miles, and it is super fast and agile and the best riding road tandem I have even been on. Now it's been in storage for almost three years. We just pulled it out and took it on a quick ride, and it is riding great! We are selling it as we are selling the house, and it's just too nice of a bike to put back into storage.

I changed to a wheelset that was better rated for tandem weight (Topolino) and added a Gates timing belt using an external Eccentric bottom bracket from Germany called the Exzentriker, which has worked great.

The bike has a full Dura-Ace 10 speed drivetrain and FSA carbon cranks. It also has new Michelin Pro4 28c Endurance tires. (That's about as wide as this bike will take, though maybe it will go to 30?)

I just measured it and compared it to Calfee's geometry chart, and it measures up as a Medium/Small. That surprised me, as I typically ride a large. With a 110 stem on there I don't feel like it's too small, though, and I am 6'2".

It's 27.5 pounds right now with pedals and the bottle cages and toolbag. Likely under 26 with all those removed!

Price: $4,500.

The bike is in Golden, CO. I can ship it if need be.

1987 Santana Arriva S - Price Reduced

March 12

I have owned this tandem since new. I purchased it to enjoy fast, flat centuries, and it was great! With a strong partner, everyone wants to try and hang with you! Now, this isn't the lightest tandem out there, but you will be glad this bike is as solid as it gets. When you have a long down hill, the last thing you want is a bike that twitches and scares you!

Leaving the wheel suckers gasping for air is worth it! Ask yourself, "How fast do you want to go?"

When I bought bike, I was told the Arriva "S" is rare, and that the frame is a Sovereign road bike with a Shimano groupo, instead of the Campagnolo component package.

The bike has never been wrecked, and it has been stored inside.

This tandem has less than 500 miles on it since new!

Price: $1,000 OR BEST OFFER. I am seeing prices from $3,000 and up to the moon on new road tandems.

I am in Cincinnati, OH. Cash, and it's yours. No shipping.

Rare Mike Melton Custom Tandem for Sale - Ad 39535

March 12

This Mike Melton tandem was custom made for my wife and I by Mike Melton in 1981. The frame is in near mint condition. There are a couple nicks (stone chips) in the original paint, but only a few. The original paint and decals are mostly just as Mike produced it for us. It was created in his Delaware, OH shop. I have the original invoice as well.

After Mike Melton made the frame, I originally built the rest myself from components including building the wheels. The wheels have since been rebuilt and new brake levers replacing the original Mafac levers and flat bars replaced the stoker's dropped bars.

I will list the components that are currently configured, however, the real draw of this opportunity is the frame itself:

Components can be upgraded/replaced, but this frame is quite a gem. This frame was not a mass produced version, but hand built/supervised by Mike himself. Mike is no longer with us, but he was an innovator and leader of framebuilding in his era. Mike has Olympic gold as his legacy, and this frame was crafted by those same hands. Some of the leading cyclists of his time sought out and rode Mike Melton framesets. For more information about Mike go to this website.

I am asking $2,200 for this piece of tandem and bicycling history.

The location is in Dublin, OH. I can transport a reasonable distance, but long distance would be at buyers expense.

For the real Mike Melton afficiando, I have a single Mike Melton road frame that is my personal ride. I could make a package deal for someone that would like both a tandem and single road bike produced by Mike Melton. A photo of this bike is included in the photos linked above.

Santana Cabrio Triplet / Tandem - Ad ID ANDYBA

This Santana Cabrio Triplet/Tandem bicycle converts between tandem and triple bike using S&S couplers. The process takes about 20 to 30 minutes by removing/adding the frame center section and reconnecting cables. It's awesome for families with younger children and travel! The bike is even airline compatible with cases.

We used this bike for a 14 day tour in Spain and a couple of smaller tours since, but it has not been ridden in a couple of years. We are selling it because our daughter has outgrown touring with her parents.

This is a 2013 bike. A new version of this bike sells for almost $9,000, and the specs have changed little. There are some minor scratches/chips to the paint. Touch up paint is available from Santana.

We will include in this sale the travel case for the center section. The other two travel cases are negotiable.

Shipping to be covered by buyer.

Co-Motion Big Al(uminum) - Ad ID ponti3

March 6

This is a 2002 Co-Motion Big Al(uminum) tandem bicycle that was just under $5,000 new. It has a new upgraded Wound-Up carbon front fork and a suspension stoker seat post. The weight is ~35 pounds, which is super light for a tandem. The bike rides and handles much like a single. The bike is in exceptional shape for the age, and it has always been kept indoors.

I am the second owner, and the mileage is estimated between 1,200-1,500 since new. The original owner's wife did not like to ride, so he sold it. We live in downtown Tampa, and there is too much traffic to ride locally, so now we have decided to sell.

Price: $1,500.

The bike is located in Tampa, FL. I can assist with ensuring bike shop packaging and arrangements for shipping.

Santana Sovereign - Price Reduction plus Case and Rack Now Included! - Ad ID KSHAWT

March 6

This Santana Sovereign tandem bike is a great starter tandem with a light weight frame and solid components. The size is "medium". (We are: captain = 6'00" and stoker = 5'4"). Santana says the bike is designed for inseams of 80-87 cm (front) and 72-91 cm (rear). A Thule / ATOC swiveling roof rack ($500 new), and a full-sized, hard shell tandem case (no longer in production, but original price was >$500) are included in the price.

We are the second owners of the bike. We bought it from Bicycle John's in Burbank (on consignment) around 2000. I believe it is a 1998 model. Over the years, we have updated and replaced various components, but its largely configured as it was originally. The rear wheel was rebuilt this summer with all new spokes.

For about five years, this was our everyday bike. Then, in 2005, we got a coupled bike for touring, and so this one saw less use. We've taken delivery of a new tandem and so, we are selling the other two.

The bike has a number of scratches from lots of years of use, but is ready to ride just as-is. Or change the gearing and upgrade as you see fit; it’s a very light frame that would really sing with some new light wheels.

Specifications:

Also included in the sale are: four water bottle cages (silver); Blackburn frame pump; wired Flightdeck computer.

Price: asking $1,100.

The bike is located in San Luis Obispo, CA. In person pick-up preferred, or I'll deliver it anywhere between here and Los Angeles. Otherwise, I'll arrange to have it packed and shipped at buyer's expense.

For more information please send an email to: KShawTreo [at} att [dot) net

Co-Motion Primera - Ad ID shanno

January 8

"Hand built in Eugene, Oregon" for us in late 2014, purchased through Cycology in Maryville, this is a very-good-condition Co-Motion Primera disc-brake tandem road bike that's seen less use than I'd hoped it would. (That's an okay thing--as my wife has independently become more active in her own single-bike road and mountain biking activities). Still, a very nice bike, looking for a new home, always kept in the basement or garage, never wrecked, just a few nicks in the paint here and there. I'd say it would be on the high side to estimate that we've even clocked 1,000 miles on it in the past five years.

The bike has a hand-built frame and wheels, rack and fender mounting points. It's a size Large. I'm about 6'-0" & my wife 5'-8," but as can be seen from the photos, there is a fair bit of downward adjustability in the seat posts for those not quite as tall.

The color is a medium blue metallic to tropical green metallic fade.

Also included in this sale are the SPD pedals shown in the pictures, if desired.

Our purchase price was $4,687, and we're selling this almost new bike for just $3,200. Cash only (PayPal a consideration). In-person transactions only.

We are about an hour east of Knoxville, TN. I'd prefer a buyer come to me, but I'd be willing to take the bike as far as Knoxville, Asheville, or Johnson City/Kinsgsport.

da Vinci Joint Venture - Ad ID DONPLE

December 13

Are you looking for a "little something" under the tree? Well, you're in luck. This da Vinci Joint Venture Sm / Sm Tandem is for sale!

The bike has a Reynolds 7005 Aluminum upgrade frame with Independent Coasting System. It has four front chainrings and 9 rear ones = 36 gears! The gears range from 18 to 140 gear-inches. No other tandem gives you that many gears or that kind of range. You will always have the right gearing!

da Vinci Designs Independent Coasting System (ICS) offers you a riding experience both on and off road that equals or surpasses the best you've had on a single or tandem bike. The ICS makes for a far more intuitive, comfortable and efficient ride. This newfound ability to independently or collectively coast, pedal and position your cranks at will offers these advantages: Starting, stopping and going through corners are as easy as on a single bike; Captain and stoker can independently relax, take a drink, adjust seat position, stand for a few seconds to relieve weary sit bones, even take a moment to gaze at scenery, while the other keeps pedaling.

The bike has Zipp Sl-70 Aero carbon bars for the Captain and the Stoker. The front also has a Zipp stem. Upgrades also include ceramic bearings in the wheels, front and rear disc brakes, a Wound Up Carbon front fork, White Industries freewheels for the ICS, Cane Creek 110 headset, House of Kolor Snow White Pearl paint and House of Kolor Kandy Apple "Flames." This also has 5 Carbon Bottle cages and a "Click Stand".

If you ordered this bike new, it would be right at $8,000.00.

We live in Kansas City, but... I am headed to Orlando in about very soon and could bring it there or anywhere along the way.

The pictures with the HED wheels show an upgrade we can do. Contact me for details.

The bike is also advertised on Craigslist.

Santana Sovereign - Ad ID GOLDEN

December 11

For sale at fixed price or best offer is a vintage Santana Sovereign tandem in better-than-new condition. We are the original owners. The bike has never crashed, and it has been fully refurbished. It has, most likely, less than 1,000 miles on it.

The size is 62cm / 56cm. I am 6' 1" tall, and my wife is 5' 8". The bike has many new parts, and too many spares are included to list. It was built and maintained by me... a professional bike mechanic and a and cyclist for over 40 years. Health forces sale.

The bike is for sale on eBay, where there are full details and gorgeous pictures.

Story: A respected friend (finished both RAM and PBP) tried our tandem with his wife, who is no slouch herself, with 10,000 miles last year on our local bike path. The bike didn't fit them, but they responded that they had never ridden a bike that felt so trusted or shifted so smooth as our Sovereign. We would not offer for sale a tandem any other way.

Price: $1,200 or best offer.

Pick-up at owner's location in the Kansas City, MO area. Sorry, NO SHIPPING as the bike would never ride the same. With prepayment I will deliver the bike within a 250 mile radius of Kansas City for $50. Returns with negotiation only.

PS – I can't begin to tell you what this tandem has meant to us. It's probably something only another tandem couple would understand. I captured my wife on this bike. We laughed, we cried, we dodged tornadoes, we crawled, we flew, we dreamed. A life has rolled past on these wheels and the bike needs to continue rolling and living. If couples only knew that tandems are "Miles of Smiles Machines"! Forget Marriage Encounter... buy a cheap tandem and hammer and talk!

Thanks for looking, and safe cycling.

1980 Rodriguez Custom-Built Touring Bike - Ad ID ACROSS

November 19

I have a custom Rodriguez touring tandem that was built in late 1979 and delivered in early 1980. The bike was hand built by Angel (Ahn-hel) Rodriguez himself, and I convinced him to add several features that he originally claimed he no longer provided: chromed chain stays; custom Campagnolo Record cranks converted to triple; crossover chain drive cranks connecting stoker and captain.

This is a serious touring tandem. I had it equipped with 27" 48 hole rims because if a tire needed replacement in a small town, the local hardware store or gas station was much more likely to have a 27" tire than a 700c, and we could limp home.

The bike has Phil Wood sealed bearing hubs treaded for Arai drum drag brakes which were never installed. There are braze-ons for four water bottle cages, a frame style pump, fenders, and front and rear racks including provisions for lowrider racks.

I can provide you with a Dropbox link that has the hi-res photos (9 pics in all).

I will include Yakima crossbars, the fenders, 2 water bottle cages and the pump if I get my selling price of $3,000 (buyer pays shipping).

The bike is located in Orcutt, CA.

This Santana has a double diamond frame style due to the small size of 20.5" by 19.5".

It has never dropped or crashed. It was ridden extensively, but always meticulously cared for. Health issue forces a sale.

Price: $1,500

Pashley U Plus 2 Tandem Trailer-Cycle

November 15

Does your cycling entourage include two young children? This is a Pashley U Plus 2 tandem trailer-cycle – the Rolls Royce of trailer-cycles. It has a very stable tricycle design and is solidly made in Britain by Pashley.

The British-made Pashley tandem tag-a-long for two children attaches to the seat-post of the towing bicycle (hitch included) by an adjustable chrome-plated steel tow bar. Construction is a fully brazed steel frame with a tricycle rear for maximum stability. It fits children with 19.5" to 27.5" inseam (front) and 17.5" to 22.5" inseam (rear) with adjustable handlebars and seat posts.

This trailer-cycle is very gently used and in excellent condition. These tag-a-longs are often passed along from family to family. In fact, the manufacturer could not compete with the used market and discontinued their trailer-cycles. Now they are very hard to find.

Price: $1,200.

The Pashley is located in Mount Vernon, ME. Shipping is negotiable. I might be able to deliver it or meet part way.

Burley Samba - Ad ID CHESTER.

October 15

I purchased this Burley Samba tandem for my 50th birthday in 1999. It was moderately used in the early years and once or twice each year in the last five or so. It is in good condition and has never been wrecked. It was used for rail-to-trail and paved bike paths—no road trips. It has evolved over the years to favor comfort and upright pedaling-as you can see from the image. My wife liked the soft-ride technology and thought it was a valuable option on the bike.

The bike has no new additions to the stock bike in 1999 except the saddles and handlebars. It has a twenty-one gear drivetrain.

Price: $700.

I live in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia near Washington DC. I will travel up to 200 miles to deliver or meet.

Santana Team Ti - Ad ID AGMANF

October 8

My wife just bought a new e-bike and has lost interest in riding tandem!! This is a beautiful and light Medium Santana Team Ti. Ride is smooth as you would expect with a titanium/carbon frame with carbon front fork and rear chain stay.

Spynergy wheels add to a smooth and fast ride. Dura Ace Di2 electronic shifting takes the work out of shifting and the oversize rear mechanical Santana disc brakes gives you incredible stopping power on those long descents.

The bike has been taken on a couple of Santana trips and used lightly on local rides. It's in excellent condition with plenty of extra cables and parts from an upgrade.

We are asking $8,500 OBO. If you price new Santana Team Ti bikes, that price is a steal!!

This bike is located in Lancaster CA. I will deliver it to any So Cal location or shipping can be arranged, as I have an XL bike box.

For more information, please text 8{Won]8-47(Too}-68(Fore!]0 or please send an email to: agmanfamily {at] gmail (dot] com

Bob Jackson Tandem - Ad ID: WORLDD

August 19

I've owned this Bob Jackson tandem since 1972, when I purchased it used from a pro shop in Alameda. At the time I owned a bike shop in Florida and wanted a pro grade tandem to race to promote the shop. Bob Jackson was one of the foremost frame builders in that era, and was from Leeds, England.

Over the years I've performed various upgrades, but basically the bike is Reynolds 531, and most components are Campagnolo.

The "bent tube" at the stoker seat post is designed to shorten the overall wheelbase for cornering purposes. The long chain provides an optimal chain line from the front triple and rear 6 cog freewheel. Bar end shifters are SunTour. Gearing is equally stepped from 36-118 gear inches. Hubs and one crank are Phil Wood, the other Campagnolo.

The bike was recently stripped, professionally painted, and rebuilt. So was the car.

Price: $5,500. (Car not included.)

This beautiful bike is located in North Plainfield, NJ. I prefer local pick up, or I will cooperate with shipping arranged for and paid by buyer.

For more information please call 573-six2zero-threezero14 or send an email to: worlddean {at] gmail (dot] com

Santana Team - Ad ID SIGNET

August 13

This Santana Team bike is in near perfect condition. The bike was repainted this February by Santana and was professionally rebuilt by Speed Merchants Bike Shop in Rockford MI. Everything is working in as-new condition. The bike is ready for you to ride.

As described by Santana:

"Our custom tubeset starts with the strongest grade of aluminum, 7000 series, then adds scandium for increased strength and stiffness. This allows us to use very thin butted tubes for light weight and superior ride quality. The Bi-Laminate feature of the Team Scandium adds carbon seatstays and co-molded carbon/scandium down and bottom tubes for the vibration damping effects of dissimilar materials and a beautiful, unique look.""

This bike is a custom frame designed was designed to fid a child stoker as short as 4'10" and still be able to have a captain of 5'11" with the extended stem. There is a lot of flexibility to fit many riders. This bike is very light and responsive.

The bike has been upgraded with Pro build components:

Treat yourself to a great tandem!
