THIS OPTION IS BEING REFINED so a bigger bucket also fits over most tandems. Optional locking lid ($55) secures 200 lbs; like a Madsen Cycle but 50-75% less cost. Two options built we're refining and coming soon are: 1) removable crank arms ($155) with chainrings that remain so tandem accepts bigger bucket, pedals don't flop around, 2) a 20" wheel with drum-brake to lower center-gravity ($175) and fit existing 26-29" tandems.
THIS ITEM MAY SHIP AS A KIT like Ikea® not RubberMade®. We're working with local furniture builders so it ships flat, at 50+% less costs and packaging.
TANDEMS ARE SUPER HANDY but sit 5x more often. Add a cargo-rack, bucket or motor and it's a powerful car alternative. We were disheartened the #1 seller of US-made tandems was far more interested to sell $10,000 Tandem/cruises than bikes people actually use. This could change that, as we sponsor eco/adventure tours to developing regions. Concept: we shipmore powerful racks/bikes to Africa/Southeast Asia, you tour longer, easier, then consider leaving that bike for local women to use vending - a better use of resources and (likely) far better adventure/memory for all parties. Give us feedback.
