Hi

 

 

 

Just wondering if anyone have any knowledge about

 

the RIVAL tandem?

 

 

 

Looking to purchase from Solomon's but have never heard

 

about it.

 

 

 

It's got Ultegra on and XT at the rear.

 

 

 

Thanks

Name does not mean much. I have an el rapido Tandem. ...... Handbuilt by an Spanish frame builder ..... if I want to impress the incredulous, but a straight plain Kinesis frame ( most aluminium bikes are built by Kinesis) that I repainted and gave my own name.

 

Point is, what type of frame is it?????, aluminium??????. What type of wheelset, hubs rims, spokes? Does it have any stickers about origin? What is their price?

 

I will look at it on Friday when I visit the store.

They don't have it in yet... saying it will be in on Friday.

 

I'm doing the 70.3 on Sunday so wont be here on friday.

 

Sale's guy says it's made by the same guys who makes Cannondale....? So very eager to see it.

 

Will be Aluminum frame.

I inquired about the Raleigh and then was told about the Rival.

 

How tall are you and your partner? and what size frame are you looking at?

I said tall...not wideWink

 

Raleigh tandems are one of the longest tandems, which gives the stoker a bit more place at the back. I have seen a Rival tandem before and they look pretty short

that's why I sold my Titan... want more room at the back.

 

 

 

Cannondale are known for room at the back.

 

 

 

that's why I thought that the Rival will be good...(made by Cannondale)

 

 

 

Have not ridden on a raleigh - will look at it again if you say it's got room at the back.

 

 

 

We are 180 and 181

when you guys say space - what do you mean ?

 

 

 

The distance between seat pillar and handlebars for the person at the back.
