Thorn Discovery tandem
Bought in about 2001/2002, and mostly very lightly used since then; hardly at all in the last 7 or 8 years. I can’t remember the original frame dimensions, but I’m 5’11”, and my stoker is nearer 5’4”
Reynolds 531 steel throughout, including the tandem forks.
3 x 8 drivetrain and bar-end shifters, with an XTR 8-speed cassette, and XT front & rear mechs, LX cranksets (175/170mm F/R) and nearly-new Specialites TA chainrings throughout, built into a 30-40-50 chainset. LX (SPD) pedals at both pilot & stoker.
40-hole XT tandem hubs and Sun Rhino 26” rims all in good/excellent condition. Panaracer Hi-Road tyres; front is fine, although the rear is probably due for replacement soon.
Suntour SE rim brakes with XT pad carriers and pads.
Stronglight threaded headset.
Zefal high-pressure frame pump on the boom tube. There are two bottle cages installed, with fittings for three more on the frame.
The rear seat post is USE Shockpost.
There’s a rear rack fitted, and I have a pair of Blackburn aluminium front racks if you want them.
There is the original Union bottle dynamo and front light (not terribly powerful, granted)
A Datatag transponder is installed, and paperwork for change of owner is available.
The rear quick-release skewer is fitted with the bobbins for a BobYak trailer, and the original XT skewer is available if you want that too.
