I recently got this awesome KHS Tandemania Alite. It’s comes with a rigid fork which will soon be upgraded to 100mm Marzocchi fork and the wheels will get pampered with a set of off road tires.

Priscilla felt that the rear flat bar was too low, so I changed them out to a beach cruiser bar and installed a pair of glittery jelly grips!

    How do you like it now after owning it for a while? I am thinking of getting one.

    This is an awesome tandem. Very well put together and reliable! One thing I’d change on it. The rear derailleur is a Rapid Rise. I would have opted for a standard deraileur only because that’s what I was used to.
