W   elcome to our Tandem page,   which, as you can see, is really a load of pictures of our splendid machine. The frame is made by the US company Cannondale and after that its almost totally custom kit. We purchased it from Scotby Cycles of Carlisle in 2008.

The photos below are really so I can discuss issues and general set-up with other tanden enthusiasts on the Tandem Club discussion board but feel free to click any picture to see an enlargement.

A few more detailed pictures of our Cannondale MT800 Tandem.

The new custom design 200mm rear disc and the skinny 180mm it is replacing. You can see the old one had been rather hot, blue in fact.
