Tandem Club Discussion Board

Bootham School - Tandem Challenge

Date: 8 May 2009

Hello All,
The plan is to organise a team of students to do-up and then cycle a tandem from Lands End to John O'Groats in the summer of 2010, to raise money for charity.

We have lots of people who are good with bikes, though none of us have any experience working with tandems so any advice would be much appreciated. We have managed to source a tandem frame, its from about the 1950's and needs just about everything.

To summarise any help in any form would be much appreciated, if anyone has experience of parts in the York area then we would love to hear from you.

Just a couple of questions to start us of:

1) Do we need special wheels for a tandem bicycle

2) How does the transmission system work

3) How heavy is a normal frame (as the one we have seems very heavy)

Many Thanks
James Mitchell
