For Sale: Thorn Explorer 20/18"By: Roly Cockwell/br>Email: firstname.lastname@example.org/br>Location: Cambridgeshire/br>Listing ends on: Wednesday 15th December 2021/br>Price: £850/br>
Very reluctant sale of Thorn Explorer tandem; it deserves to be used but my stoker has other ideas.
Excellent condition for its age, barely used since 2008 but always stored indoors and well maintained. Tyres, tubes, brakes, bar tape all recently replaced. Frame size 20/18" would suit riders in the range 5'4" (1.62m) to 6'2" (1.88m) as either pilot or stoker. It is very flexible; we have used it successfully with the smaller rider either front or rear.
This is an outstanding touring or recreational bike and was well used in its early years. Built in 2000, it cost £1400 new (and would be a lot more today). Bombproof 26" wheels on 48 spoke Sun Rhyno rims; 26x1.50 Panaracer Hi-Road tyres; 24 speed Shimano / Suntour gears with 24/40/50 chainrings and 11-30 cassette; Shimano bar end shifters; V brakes; Rolls and Brooks saddles; full SKS/Blumels mudguards; four bottle cages. Braze-ons for front low rider pannier rack and Suntour disk / drag brake (all included but not fitted) and standard rear rack (not included). Fitted with combi SPD and flat pedals so it can be ridden with or without cleats.
Payment by bank transfer before collection, or cash please.
