What We Do


Tandem Test Rides

We offer test riding (with training if required) on all of our tandems and – please call us to make an appointment so that we can ensure the correct tandems are available for you.  We have traffic free trails and quiet country lanes with suitable length routes to suit any fitness level.

You may try out as many tandems as you wish, please bring your own particular pedals if you have them. We will require a photo ID and need to take a pre-authorisation on a credit card. Further details here.

Tandem Training & Try-Out’s

We offer through our Tandem Experience the ability to come along for a day, have your training and then ride for as long as you wish on a tandem of your choice.

Tandem Sizing & Fitting

Our sizing experience goes back to literally hundreds of couples over the past 30 plus years.

We will be able to make sure that your fit is as best it will be for you and your tandem.  If you currently have a tandem and wish to have advice on the fitting then this will suit you too.

A full sizing for both riders is included as part of our service when you order a tandem from us. If you choose to have a fitting but do not order at that time, we charge for this service and if you order later, that charge is reunded.

Tandem – Custom built for you both

Majority of our business is custom building  to our customers specifications.

Based on riding and building Tandems for over 30 years you can be assured that our expertise is part of our service.

If you wish to build your own tandem, you can order all of the Tandem Specific parts with your Tandem Frame-Set from us. With all the other parts that can be purchased from your local quality bike shop (please do support them and not the on-line suppliers) you can have the satisfaction of your own build.  However, we must stress we cannot be involved in advising you on your own Tandem build up, as we are sure you will respect that our time and expertise is spent building Tandems fully for our customers. If you do need us for this advice & assistance, then we charge for our time at £40 per hour.

Tandem Wheels

We only use the best quality components for our tandem wheels and will not compromise strength over weight.  However, we do build light and strong tandem wheels. All parts of our wheels sets are available separately if you prefer to build your own wheels or have a local professional wheel builder that you use.

Tandem Refurbishment & Servicing

There will come a time when your Tandem will need a refurbishment or service. We obviously have extensive knowledge and experience in do both.  Give us a call to discuss your needs and in the case of older tandems, advice on the viability of such work.
