I've finally had to admit that my trusty tandem isn't getting the use it deserves, and it's time to find it a new home. It did me proud on a LEJOG ride, and was very reliable.
It's an Orbit Velocity Nine from JD Tandems, 18/14” aluminium frame, bought spring 2018. It has been ridden about 1500 miles, is newly serviced, and has always been stored indoors. A few cosmetic knocks and scrapes (see pictures), but nothing major.
Shimano Altus 27 speed STI's with 26/36/48 front chain ring and 12/36 cassette. Front V brake, rear disc, and third rear V parking brake. Schwalbe Marathon 700 x 35c tyres, 48-spoke wheels. Detailed specs, measurements and more photos available if needed.
The comination of frame size, raised stoker bars and long seat posts made it really adaptable for differently-sized riders - it worked for me as a 5'3" pilot with lots of room to go higher, and I had stokers ranging from about 5' to well over 6'.
Collection from NW Kent (20 mins from J5 M25), viewings and test rides welcome. I do still have the original delivery box so I could check cost for courier delivery if required.
