Custom Tandems

custom tandem

Our broad selection of standard tandem models will meet the needs of most tandem pairs. But perhaps you have some requirements that our standard models don't provide. A Co-Motion custom tandem is the ideal way to get exactly what you need, with your fit and your specifications met right from the drawing board.

You can start by determining which of our standard models has the features you're interested in. Or, if you don't see what you're looking for, don't hesitate to inquire! Co-Motion makes an incredible variety of custom tandems, and we have the experience to make your dream tandem a reality. To tailor a perfect fit for you, use our 13-point fitting guide, which can be completed quickly at your home or at your Co-Motion dealer.

After receiving your order, we'll send a CAD drawn design for your approval. Construction of your tandem begins only when you are satisfied with the design.

A few examples of custom tandem styles: triplets (for three), quads (for four), dual Softride™ beams, tall stoker/short captain, extra low stand-over clearance, MTB and hybrid, any wheel size, and all styles are available with S&S couplings.
