We are pioneering tandem mountain bikers, pushing the boundaries of what two people can do on one bike. We’ll take on pretty much anything, from Down Hill and Enduro racing to all day back country epics.
How we got started on tandem riding
It all started when Rose wanted to ride in the race around Lake Taupo- but she didn’t want to ride the full 150Km on her own. So who better person to do half the work? Jackson, boyfriend at that time. After that event, they were hooked on riding in tandem. Being mountain bikers true at heart, they brought a touring tandem and converted it into a mountain bike tandem. Soon however, they were exceeding it’s capabilities, it was time for a new bike.
Not being happy with the mountain bike tandems on the market at the time, Jackson decided to build one himself. Bruce the tandem was created, a full suspension tandem that was capable of cross-country racing, cycle touring and many back country adventures. Jackson and Rose moved to Christchurch in 2011 and found the terrain they enjoyed riding there required a bigger bike. So Jackson got to work again and Trev the tandem was created, a full suspension trail bike with 200mm travel all round.
With the new Mountain Bike Park being constructed in Christchurch, Jackson is now building a DH mountain bike tandem… watch this space!
Jackson has designed and built all their tandems from steel, and quality parts have been obtained with the help of Torpedo7. We can trust the staff in our local Christchurch store to find all sorts of unusual componentry for our specific needs.
Three words that best describe us:
Enthusiastic, pioneers, in balance (in more ways than on the bike)
