Trek T50 // at 01:25
One of my many bicycles.
A tandem at last — No collection of bicycles is complete without at
least one tandem.
- 40 hole Shimano XT hubs
- Velocity Dyad rims
- Shimano Ultegra shifters
- Shimano Deore DX 9-speed rear derailleur
- Shimano 105 triple front derailleur
1750mm long, with the wheels removed, a trifle cumbersome to carry up and down the stairs or to put in the car! So far, so good, and it is lots of fun.
I'm sure it doesn't get used as much as it should, mostly due to the pain of taking it anywhere; major expeditions so far have been a nine-day Bicycle NSW tour and the minimal 80km version of the Audax Alpine classic.
