White Brothers is the only option for high quality suspension for your Tandem, recumbent, or recumbent tandem. We use the same stiff, strong 32mm platforms, but have custom tuned the spring and damping systems to accommodate for the different weighting applications these disciplines require.

This is a lightweight 100mm double crown fork with enough options and adjustments to meet the needs of most teams. Using the Air Assist and external damping you can adjust the ride of this fork to fit an amazing range of team weights and ridding preferences.
Their support staff worked with me from design to finish on this project. There was a clearance issue in the rotor/fork/hub interface when I went to assemble the front end. This was due to the fork having tight clearances and the rotor on the Hope Mono6ti using a fatter aluminum arm assembly. I emailed them with a description and photo of the problem. They were very responsive, including a couple of calls and shipping me a new lower to be sure that wasn’t the problem. In the end it wasn’t their problem, but they were there working with me to resolve the issue. Awesome!
Bike Setup: IBIS Cousin It (tandem), XT shifters, XTR derailleurs, LX cranks, 11-34 cassette, White Brothers TM 1.0, Hope Mono6ti (205mm rotors) front and rear, Phil Wood Disk/Mavic EX 729 wheels with a Continental Vertical Pro Tection2.3 on the front and a Continental Survival Pro Tection 2.3 on the rear

I didn't expect that this would be a major crash given that we weren't going that fast (maybe 15 mph), but in fact both of us dented our helmets.
It occurred to me that ... Read More »
