We just came across the Bike Friday tandem bikes and thought they deserved some attention. Tandem bikes are a good choice for those that are riding with a child or companion that is not yet ready for independent riding, or for those couples that, well, can’t bear to be far apart from one another. Bike Friday even makes a tandem that folds. Now you can take your tandem with you, greatly expanding your opportunities to enjoy it.
Bike Friday makes a few different tandem including the entry level Family Tandem, the Traveler XL for more heavy duty touring and travelling, and the Two’sDay, which is their folder. The Family Traveler starts at $1,998, while the Traveler XL starts at $2,650–pricey but still a good choice if tandem is your style. Construction is sturdy and components mid- to high-end. For example, even the entry level Traveler includes Avid disc brakes and 24 speed touring gears.
