Correct Sizing

To allow us to recommend the most appropriate size of tandem we would like you to measure your solo bikes or tandem and provide your ride heights.

See the image on the left. Please make sure the pedal is set at the furthest point away from the saddle. If you are planning on buying your tandem mail order we also need to know the distance from the nose of your saddle to the centre of the handlebars, and to know if your handlebars are higher, lower or level with your saddles. If you need any help or advice with sizing then please get in touch. If you are planning on test riding then we only need to know how tall you both are.
