Cannondale tandems - end of an era?
Saturday 29 July 2017, Filed in: General
It has been confirmed that Cannondale tandems are not going to be available for 2018.
They have had a chequered history over the last few years. Around 7 years ago the company was taken over by the Dorel Group, who moved production of Cannondale bicycles to Taiwan. Cannondale tandems hung around for a couple of years as there was still stock which had been made in the USA, but by 2012 the stock had run dry.
In 2014 they came back and we have had a steady supply of their road tandems and 29ers ever since. However, the availability of tandem specific components has reduced significantly recently as several manufacturers have withdrawn their tandem offering and whether this is the reason Cannondale are withdrawing from the tandem market, or if it's because the sales volumes are too small to make the line profitable is anyone's guess.
So if you fancy a Cannondale Road tandem don't wait until 2018 as you'll be disappointed. We only have 2 road tandems left in stock, 29ers are sold out.
