Ritchey / Skyliner Tandem / 1987

Tom Ritchey has produced the most beautiful and well-built tandems of all time. The Skyliner Tandem was named after a boulevard near Tom’s shop - Skyline Boulevard. The Skyline was designed for rigorous mountain biking with over-sized frame tubes, wide gearing, and clearance for big tires. Tom’s fillet-brazing work throughout the entire frame is unmatched.
