    Here are a couple of pics of a new Tandem we picked up.

    Hello All,
    I'm new here but I figured I would add some info and pics here.
    I have been wanting to get my wife into biking so I decided we would search for a tandem. I have been a avid bike builder for many years and actually back in the day i was the guy who did most of the building and repairs at a bike shop in Elizabeth NJ.
    So we set out on our quest to find a tandem bike. Not to easy to find around here so I ended up with a old Fiore Tandem in need of a rebuild. Many of the parts have been upgraded now running Shimano derailleur and some alloy wheels from a specialized. The bike has only seen about 50 miles so far but I expect it see 500 by this time next year. ( I Hope! :-))
    One of the things we like about this bike is it is not too long and easy to transport on a carrier.
    Here is the before and after picsOrig.jpgFinish1.jpg

    I had done some research on this Fiore but could not figure out the origin or manufacturing date. Any information from others would be helpful.

    Hi there. I bought this last valentines Day for the Wife. (Romantic huh?) Its a cheap Viaggio off Amazon. I didn't want to spend $$$ to see if we liked tandem riding. Turns out we love it. In all honesty its been a great bike. I put 105 brakes with salmon pads and new cables on it right away. 1800 miles last year. Including 400 on RAGBRAI. We are going to keep it a few more years so I am putting 105 derailleur's FSA road crank and jagwire pro cable kit on it this month. All in all Im really happy with it.
    I put a 12V Lipo battery system on it to run a couple phone chargers, LED strip lights on the frame, computer speakers for some tunes and a back up camera with 4.3" screen so she can see behind us easier in a pack. Yes I am a geek. Lol.

    Hi all I'm new here still trying to figure out this Forum stuff LOL.
    Well her goes.
    I was looking for a tandem for my wife and I to ride and since many are very l o n g it is hard to transport them. I found this old Fiore that needed a rebuild so that is what we went with Pics below B4 & after. There seems to be little information about this bike on the internet so i have no idea what year it is. I have upgraded the wheels to alloy from a specialized and new Shimano derailleur. Alloy seat posts and handlebars new saddles and chain otherwise the balance is all original ( not much left ). She rides nice very comfortable and best of all compact so I can hang her in the back of the car.

    Hi, do you know if this (Fiore?) is cro-moly steel or Hi-ten?

    I don't know for sure is there any way of telling?? the bike is not as heavy as most tandems its only about 45 lbs. I still continue to search the internet for them but never find very much information if any.

    We recently bought a Fiore tandem and have been trying to do research also.
    From pictures on the web of Fiore tandems, there are 2 frame styles, differing in the rear triangle. On ours all three tubes go to the dropout. On yours, two merge above the dropout. Our bike has a 7 speed Shimano rear hub. Shimano has date codes on components. Our rear hub was made in Dec. 1990. The front of the frame has a sticker that says made in Taiwan. The serial number on the bottom of the front bottom bracket begins in M87 followed by seven numbers. Taiwan, would suggest Giant as the manufacturer. M87 might indicate a Giant serial number for Dec, 1987. Giant begin making OEM bikes in 87. They had been making bikes for Schwinn since 1977. I've found some pictures of older Schwinn bikes with the same style frame. Still no idea of what retailer sold the bikes origionally. I think I can peg ours as made between 87 and 91. I suspect manufactured by Giant in Taiwan.
    components on ours include:
    Shimano Exage front and rear hubs, HG50
    Shimano SIS rear deraileur.
    Weinmann aluminum front rim. rear looks the same but without Weinmann name on it.
    Tracer aluminum cranks with aluminum chain rings.
    I think the components would be compatible with that date range.

    I have about half a dozen bikes so my wife and I decided to get a cheap tandem as we're not sure we'll really get into it.

    We bought this bike for about $250 on Amazon (new) and we've been riding every weekend since the last four months or so. Very nice bike, but no independent pedaling.

    Let me be the first to post a pic in 2015. This is a '97 or '98 Co-Motion with ghosted decals. Doesn't get ridden much with both kid stokers now grown adults on their own.

    edit - oh, man - can't get the best photos to load.

    The story in a nutshell - Bought tandem so wife could enjoy cycling with hubby (me). When we rode the only thing she would say was, 'What would happen to the kids if a car took us out?'. So she only rode a few times. Luckily, my 2 back-up stokers (son & daughter) took to it pretty well and cycled with me for a few years each. Whenever I mention selling it the family chorus is a resounding NO. Just bought Schwalbe Maratons in 32mm for a softer (than 28mm Conti) ride in search of new stokers. Long live the red sled.

    Not sure if I've posted our tandem pics or not. So, here they are. The frame is steel, custom made by someone named Reidell, we think out of California. Pretty awesome paint job w/ some great graphics/pics/words. We love it! It's a heavy beast of a bike though. Still trying to get used to riding together. I think I, as the stoker, need different handle bars, risers, maybe?

    It also fits in our Honda Element, with the rear wheel riding up front with us. Love live the Element!!

    Don't tell me I'm not supposed to be here, because this is where I am.

    "That pretty much sums it up. I'm 43 and my max is ~178-180. If that HR chart was mine or Froome's, we'd be on the verge of death. But for you it probably looks like a normal workout." -TLG

    I have been wanting a tandem for a number of years, but it never happened. Then I found a Ritchey breakaway tandem frame brand new on e-Bay and... well, I had a few bucks burning a hole in my pocket, so I bought it.

    The wheels and brakes are Hope. The brakes are their E4, with 203 mm floating disc. Wheels are Hope Enduro 29ers. The crankset is a Bontrager carbon. Gears are SRAM 1X10.

    The saddles are Selle Italia because I like them. Most of the other bits are Ritchey.

    We have about 400 miles on it so far, and it is a nice ride. The plan is to take it to Scotland this fall to ride across the Highlands.
