Motobecane Inter Club tandem mods

Posted By: Steve Gibson
Date: 4 June 2009

Hi there. I have an old Motobecane Interclub tandem that I purchased with a view to using with my sons when they got a little taller. Now they are big enough I've noticed the gearing isn't that great, especially when going up hills. I'm thinking of upgrading the front cog to 3 instead of the current 2 to give me 15 gears instead of the current 10 (5 cog rear hub).

Does anyone have any idea

a) whether what I'm proposing would have the desired effect; and

b) whether standard UK replacement components should fit OK?

I believe Motobecane is French and I'm guessing the bike is of late 70's to early 80's vintage.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Kind regards

Steve
