Hi there

I bought this tandem from Tim ( tiboltrider) a couple of weeks ago.
The bike is in excellent condition for its age.
Changed a few things like the v brakes from the canti brakes on it, because I plan to use it now and again in the woods.
Fitted new new cables, flite saddle up front, new shifters an xt rear mech.
Took it for a test ride and nearly wiped out into a wall.
Should have plenty of laughs.
Planning on doing the Devon dirt on it in May across dartmoor

Kirbdug :D

Took the tandem upto haldon today.
Had such a blast with plenty of laughs
No blood was lost
Did the blue and parts of the red because an enduro event had closed sections
Was a bit sketchy through the rock garden half way through red route


Will get better pics and spec soon
