• The best folding full-suspension hydraulic rim brakes tandem money can buy! Lucky you.

    you're not wrong!

    I had wanted one of these for ages and ages.
    despite many of the features seeming like novelty items, I believe in the wizards at Koga Miyata.
    I don't own a car so how else am I going to get a tandem on the train?

    a few months ago, saw a father+daughter on one near Waterloo. had to ride like mad to keep up with them. I asked if they were good and he said "yes, so good we own two" and then rode off into the sunset, jones bars pointed straight ahead.
    after that I watched Marktplaats like a hawk and made use of some dodgy european man and van company to plonk this on my doorstep.

    as for the features:
    folding - first time was easy and it took me less than 5 mins
    hydraulic rim brakes - they feel lovely
    extra drag brake, controlled by rear - nice to have on the steeps
    full suspension - rides like a cadillac
    six bottle cage mounts - great, I love hydration
    framebag space - eyeing up a @Tijmen folding compatible double luggage solution

    the only thing I don't really like is the butterfly bars, but they fold in this really cute way, so maybe I have to keep them.
