D2 Travel tandem with two S&S couplings

January 24, 2013

We just completed and delivered our first two-coupling version of the new D2 custom magnesium travel tandem. With two S&S couplings, this super light weight tandem fits in a standard single bike case and weighs in at less than 50 pounds with the case. The bike itself, weighed in at 24.7 pounds with a wide-range triple gearing (30/42/55 & 11-30 Recon Ti cassette), Campy 10s shifters/derailleurs, FSA carbon bars and seat posts, San Marco SLR Flow saddles, Ritchey WCS captain & Zona carbon adjustable stoker stems, Lightning tandem cranks with left side Gates Carbon Drive timing belt, Campy Super Record dual-pivot f/r brake calipers, American Classic 420 Aero 3 wheels with Conti 25 mm Gatorskins.

The two-coupler option is a great option for airline travel as you will only be charged as if it were a single bike. The four coupler tandem fits in two separate S&S travel cases, and travels on airlines at no additional charge. The two coupling option is also great for carrying the tandem on a rear-mounted car rack or for carrying on a roof rack. The convenience of breaking the bike in half can also help with storing the bike at home. The possibilities are endless…..
