Thorn Discovery Tandem size 22"/19" bought new in 1996 to fit us at 5'10 and 5'9 respectively (but with room to adjust either way).
531 steel frame with pinchbolt eccentric shell (not grubscrews). Sun CR18 26" rims on Shimano 48 spoke hubs front & rear. Stronglight needleroller headset bearing; thudbuster rear seatpost.
Chainset 50/38/26 with 11-34 8-speed cassette. Rear chain, cassette and thumb shifters are new. 170mm cranks. Another 11-34 8 speed cassette will go with the bike (bought when I thought 8-speed might go out of stock!)
Shimano Deore XT shifters front and rear. Two normal vee brakes and a drum brake operated on a friction lever.
Original Brooks saddle front and Selle Italia 'Lady' on rear. Blackburn racks front and rear and clickfix mount for handlebar bag.
This has been our main holiday touring bike and has served brilliantly. Frame has all the chips that a bike can acquire in 20+ years (some thanks to baggage handling) but is very sound. Ready for fully laden touring and copes easily with towpaths and roughstuff. We've spent our pension on a replacement but will be happy for this to go to a good home.
Collection only from BN44 3FN West Sussex
