Yes, it would make the ultimate Valentine’s Day gift for the tandem mountain biking couple that has everything (including an extra 8 grand lying around), but we don’t suspect too many will be given as gifts today. And that’s a shame, but then again, this is hardly one of those purchases your want to spring on your significant other. Best to discuss it first. The only part that should not be open for debate is the wheel choice. Pay the extra $500 to get it as a 29er, and have the ultimate high speed, cross country mountain bike built for two. It’s an awesome design to behold, and as a former tandem owner myself, I feel compelled to share it with our readers. We went big on the photos too.
