Please also look at our separate section on front-steer tandems.

The main advantages of a steer-from-the-rear tandem over ‘normal’ tandems (front-steering) are that the rider sitting at the rear can see and communicate much more easily with the front rider and monitor their wellbeing more easily. Steer-from-the-rear tandems allow the front rider to enjoy a view of the road ahead and feel more involved in the ride. Three wheels means this kind of tandem is much more stable especially when getting on and off – and no more so than when the front rider needs a helping hand.

Many steer-from-the rear tandems have an ingenious clutch integrated into the transmission system between the two riders. This makes it possible to disengage the pedalling for the front rider using a lever on the rear handlebars, so the front rider can be obliged to pedal, or allowed to freewheel, at the flick of a switch!

We import and refurbish delightful classic Dutch tandems which are made to last, and designed for all-weather use (they are Dutch, after, all). All cycles are professionally refurbished to a very high standard in our workshop, with new parts fitted where required.

These machines are priced individually. We aim to sell them at half the price of the new equivalent, and we give a year’s guarantee. Making these available at lower cost is part of our remit as a not-for-profit community interest company.

You can visit us any time during opening hours, but only through an appointments system can we be sure that the specialist able to help you most will be available, and that the ideal demo cycles are at base at that time. Appointments mean we can give you the full support and time you need to try a wider selection of cycles and possible adaptations.
