I purchased this immaculate time capsule of a tandem from the original owners via consignment from a friend/shop manager who had originally sold them the tandem new. It has a number of custom options/features from Ibis, as well as a slew of modernized, high-end parts that I purchased and installed. I had big hopes of getting my wife out riding more, but we only rode it twice since we purchased it, with less than 30 miles on all of the new parts. Here's the thread I started when I bought it:

This is a beautifully-spec'd bike that would be perfect for gravel riding and/or touring. The beauty of Ibis "road" bikes is that they also used 26" wheels, which means you could easily hit some single track with these or more aggressive mountain tires.

The optional (spendy) splatter-paint is a great touch, and a snap-shot out of the early '90s. The frame pump, and both original stems are also painted to match.

Top Tube C-C (Captain): 56 cm (22")
Seat Tube C-C (Captain): 19" (21" Center to Top)
Standover at middle of top tube (Captain): 31.25"

Price is now reduced to $955 (does not include the Blackburn rack, and the tires in the photo have been switched out for a set of Bontrager 26" x 2" MTB tires with smooth-rolling center tread.

This price is over $400 less than we have into the bike.

I dig steel-framed bikes of all shapes and sizes.
