In July 1992 Peg and I took delivery of our new road tandem from Mel at Tandems East. Mel, in his laid back comical way, officially named our new bike "The Virgin Merry" and many years of riding fun began. A few years later I added the Aerospoke front wheel (custom painted by the original painter of the bike. (Fresh Frame in Reamstown, Lancaster County) and had Mel build a new rear wheel that I added a UNI Disc cover. The bike comes with two sets of wheels.
The frame is a Sterling, built by Steven Belinky in Philadelphia of ChromeMoly steel. Captain is 22", Rear Admiral is 20". Frame was painted by Fresh Frame in Reamstown, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
Both sets of wheels were built by Tandems East using Phil Wood Hubs. The Aerowheel was painted to match the bike color, which is a pearl white with red accents. The tires are Continental Gatorskins, 28mm. The spare wheels have no tires mounted. There are 7-speed gear clusters on both rear wheels, and both have a ARAI drum brake mounted.
The cranks are Specialized, with a 54-44-28 chain ring. The derailleurs are Shimano Deore XT, and there are Shimano clip-in pedals front and rear. The caliper brakes are SunTour SE XC front and rear.
The handlebars are Modolo Anatonic front and rear, Tioga T-Bone Stem, Profile Aero Bar on front. Shimano bar end shifters. There are five color-matched water bottle cages and bottles.
Asking price is $2,000.
I have no idea how to package a tandem for shipping nor do I want to learn. I would prefer any interested party to pick up at my home. I would entertain a delivery within a 50 mile radius.
