When you’re riding the Speedster you’ll experience Co-Motion’s quantifiably better control that other tandem bicycles simply lack. The advanced design and unmatched construction may make you forget you’re on a tandem at all, which may explain why the handling of Co-Motion tandem bikes is often compared to top-quality single bikes. The Speedster steers nimbly and quickly, but better still; the precision of handling Co-Motion tandems for which they are famous equates to better safety as well. This tandem is remarkably lightweight and fun to take up long climbs, yet rock solid and stable on winding descents.
The Speedster’s frame is constructed with exclusive Reynolds air-hardening steel tandem tube package, a Cro-Moly steel unequaled by any steel alloy used by other tandem manufacturers. As on all Co-Motion models, one-piece top and lateral tubes keep the frame straight and strong with no interruptions at the center joints. These zonally-butted tubes, made to their stringent specifications, produce a lighter tandem frameset than any other Cro-Moly tubing. The result is that the Speedster delivers a ride that is crisp and comfortable at the same time.
A roomy stoker compartment, simple sizing system, and numerous stem selections for captain and stoker make a great fitting tandem bike a reality for just about any team. The Speedster’s high level of component specifications will leave you completely satisfied that you own one of the best tandem bicycles the world has to offer. And the good news is: you’ll be absolutely right.
The Speedster has led to the development of the new Carrera, a bike that Tandem Cycle Works is pleased and excited to offer to our customers in 2014!
