LONGBIKES 500RS

The 500RS with Continuous Oversize Long Tubes (C.O.L.T.) provides a smooth comfortable and stable ride while delivering sought after performance. The true spirit of this hand-crafted tandem is immediately realized during acceleration, out of the saddle climbing, sprinting and emergency maneuvers. This is no wimpy tandem, something all teams are sure to appreciate. Be sure to test ride a Longbikes.

The 500RS, made from world renown Easton 7000 series oversize aluminum tubes, is an extremely lightweight performer. The unit pictured tips the scales at only 35 pounds with a suspension seat post!

The monster downtube and round boom tube deliver power efficiently to where it counts, the rear wheel.
