SOLD!! da Vinci Designs In-2-ition Tandem w/ S&S Couplers, Travel Case

Sold!

Travel capable tandem without extreme airline fees, or expensive roof racks on your car or crashing your bike AND car at a drive through!  Equipped with six S&S Couplers and screw-to-join cable splitters allows easy transport in one (included) or two travel cases.  da Vinci Designs custom builds very high-end frames and complete bikes with their patented ICS or Independent Coasting System which allows EITHER rider to pedal while the other can coast as needed and join when more power is needed.  With this system, you are NOT locked together and each rider can clip in or out without affecting the other.  This is ideal for beginner tandem riders and is the system chosen by many long-time veterans.  My starting price is WELL below market value, cleaned up, bikes like this often sell for 50% or more of their original price.  Most S&S coupled tandems sell used for $3K to $6K.

The daVinci frame is the foundation and heart of your tandem. Every tube has been designed for the exact stiffness, strength, weight and ride characteristic we are all seeking, nothing is off the shelf. They had custom dies made for every tube and the results were well worth it. And, every daVinci tandem has the patented Independent Coasting System (ICS).  Hand Built in Denver Colorado

Aside from the benefits of the Independent Coasting, you will find that daVinci Designs tandems are the most comfortable, fast, precise, agile, and stable tandems you will experience. Customers tell us their da Vinci rides more like a single than any other tandem they have ridden. We attribute the ride quality to the race proven geometry, large diameter tubing, careful placement, laser straight alignment and flawless construction.  Chrome Moly Steel is built for strength and durability and even simple repairs in far away lands if needed.. Steel gives the riders a lifetime of enjoyment. For long distances, this frame has enough flex to be a comfortable ride day after day. This specific bike is outfitted with the optional S&S couplers.

Original price: $4495, S&S Couplings add $1600 so $6,095 plus tax if you want to order one new. S&S tool is included. This bike is well used, has scuffs and scrapes as seen in the pics and more.  Some scrapes from trips and packing have been touched up and others not but there is nothing that can't be cleaned up and there are no dents or other damage to the frame.  Now the bike comes with all of the custom Velcro tube protectors shown in the pictures to prevent future damage. 

The drivetrain is due for a significant cleaning and overhaul but everything is included, including the chains and newer rear Shimano cassette.  The extreme wide range gears (four chainrings, enough for any steep hill) with the ICS all work, the rear brake has the optional brake booster for added strength on long descents and a nice luggage rack and bottle cages are included as are the Sefras and Terry WSD seats.  Pedals are not included but can be added, contact after purchase for options.
