    Strength:

    Great value in a fully capable off-road tandem. We have had the tandem for less than a month and are both experienced off-road riders (over ten years)and it is our skill more than the bike that holds us back! The bike will do whatever we ask of it - and does it well.

    Weakness:

    The paint chips easily at the drop outs, but the point of these Fandango frames is to get people out on a quality tandem without breaking the bank. The frame is solid and fits well.

    We are VERY happy with the bike and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an off-road tandem. We were a bit hesitant to purchase a tandem on line - without the chance to ride it - but it turned out to be all that we expected.

    Strength:

    Good value, proper off road capability, cool looks, incredibly helpfull backup and advice from suppliers

    Weakness:

    Paint finish a bit poor in places, sugio XD triple crank poor design and needs adjustment.

    The component list says what great value this bike is. Basically we were guided by alex at mtb tandems and between us we came up with this set up to suit our weight and riding aspirations. Living in the UK, our best route was to get alex to box up a heap of components and ship them over. Alex then answered dozens of e-mails as we put it together. We didn't feel that the Julie tandem stoppers were quite powerful enough for the style of riding this bike encourages us to do and have since upgraded to Hope M4s. We took a chance on whether tandeming would suit us, but this bike is so much fun that our other bikes are gathering dust. We have raced it, left our mates standing, ridden up stuff most folks are pushing on and teared downhill at speed. Most crucially it is all black and looks soooo cooool. Its great to have a bit of kit that everyone stops to admire. If you are thinking of getting an off road tandem, its essential that you talk to alex at mtbtandems.com first.

    bomb proof frame. excellent dirtworthy components for the price.

    Weakness:

    yeeehhh a little on the heavy side, but hey this is a tandem

    solid tandem bike for mountain road. I'm an avid rider but my wife is very timid about off-road riding. Me & my neighbor got two tandem bikes from Alex and we're having quite a blast riding 'em. I'm able to take my wife out on trails that she other wise would not do it. Haven't pushed the limit of the bike yet. the stock hydraulic Magura Julie was too difficult to iron out the drags so i downgraded to a pair of 2004 avid mechanical disc 203mm. Now the bike is perfect. Nice frame geometry, excellent values. Highly recommended
