Overall Rating:4
Submitted by Andy Robson a Racer from Warwickshire, UK

Date Reviewed: May 6, 1999

Strengths:    
Cheap, very cheap. Great fun.
Cheap parts.


Weaknesses:    
forks cracked, rear wheel bust, chainset folded!!, seatpost bent, uncomfortable OE saddles


Bottom Line:   
The most fun you can have for the price?? In the Uk it retails for ~£399 and for that cash you can't get so many smiles per mile as you do on this beast! And the looks you get from people as you rag a tandem down your local trails are amazing! Go get one but be prepared for it to need a lot of repair ork if it gets hammered as much as this one does (ever seen a tandem go down steps and do bunny hops???)! Oh yeah, forgot to mention that the steering is dodgy to say the least - the dawes is a far better (more expensive) option but you may feel guilty dishing out so much abuse to a quality bit of kit!
