What is a tandem bike frame?
A tandem bike is operated by two people. The frame allows you to sit in a streamlined position, with one person steering at the front. These bikes can reach higher speeds when compared to regular bikes thanks to having twice the manpower, so if speed is what you want, a tandem could be the perfect choice for you.
What are the benefits of a tandem bike frameset?
Tandem bike framesets offer riders increased stability. This is due to the improved balance resulting from having 2 riders on the bike, which allows it to stay stable and upright on terrain of varying difficulty.
Additionally, a tandem bike frame allows for improved communication between riders as they sit close together. This allows riders to tackle difficult terrain more easily.
Tandem bikes are also generally more visible on the road due to the bigger profile created by having a larger frame and 2 riders.
Is it hard to ride a tandem bike?
In some ways, riding tandem can be like learning to ride a bike again. However, once you get the hang of it, it can be a fun and enjoyable experience.
Which size tandem bike frame should I order?

Are tandem bikes faster than regular bikes?
