    winter riding The second replacement Cane Creek wheel started cracking after a month of use in the Spring The rim was again replaced without question I was surfing the Net one day when I logged on to the Cane Creek Web Site On their Web page they said they were interested in feedback so I told them my story I said that my treatment had been commendable but I had concerns about the toughness of their wheels I had been running on my latest rim for several months without problems and was basically sastified Cane Creek immediately asked for my mailing address and sent me a new 1999 rear wheel on the condition that I return my present wheel after receiving the new rear wheel THIS WAS WAY BEYOND ANY EXPECTATIONS AND THEREFORE I LOVE TO TELL THIS STORY I have also purchased a Cane Creek headset Lee Norton peilee vaxxine com Sun Jan 2 22 56 25 PST 2000 Have a 98 23 21 RT 1000 With the help of an outstanding bike shop Brick Wheels and salesman Shane was able to upgrade weak links in original spec s of bike Of course XT V brakes with QBP Travel Agents get the model with the barrrel adjust full 9 speed Ultegra STI Flight Deck computer Conti 3000 tires 700c x 28c at 120 psi and a few other minor changes over time Probably the best addition to the braking system was the Gore Ride On Cables can now lock up rear tire at 20mph The shop gave credit for the original never installed parts and added the price difference on to total All said and done the package was less than 2400 A lot of bang for the buck since an Aluminun Santana with the same component level was about 2000 more The tires may be reduced to 25c this year results of online tire surveys since we get about 1500 2000 miles from a set rotated front to back and directionally ever 500 miles Problems 1 Blew apart the Hugi rear hub star ratchet instead of pawl engagement system Cannondale replaced rear wheel with Shimano tandem no cost no problems in over 2000 miles 2 A flat tire due to worn tire 3 Replace chain every 1000 1500 miles as preventative measure and to keep shifting tight Also have added an old UNI style disc cover on rear wheel No problems in crosswinds of 20 mph Feels like it s on rails Again a lot of bang for the buck Other aluminum tandems may have some higher end components and customized items but for that 2000 you can get dialed in and still be a lot of money ahead Robert P Egan rpegan yahoo com Tue Jan 18 23 40 31 PST 2000 We own a 98 rt1000 and rigged it for time trials Inever used the original tires Conti 23 s work flawlessly for racing cornering conditions 300 pounds combined weight Replaced drop bars for bullhorns w bar end shifters left in place This is a great way to keep my hands on the bars while shifting in group rides We also upgraded the cranks and bb with Race Face after initial creaking they worked great j rich Sun Feb 6 18 32 02 PST 2000 Hi My 11 year old son and I have been riding a Trek T50 tandom We just bought a RT1000 Our combined weight is around 360lbs We have been known to break spokes I was wondering about going to a 48 spoke wheel verus a 40 spoke We Ride across Iowa ever year are the brakes really that bad I would love to hear from some of you Rick track willinet net Mon Feb 14 22 19 44 PST 2000 We purchased our 2000 RT3000 6 months ago and being our first tandem have really enjoyed the rides esp the speeds However we have broken in total 2 front spokes and 9 rear spokes Our local dealer has been great in trying to remedy the problem First they simply replaced the first set of broken spokes 1 front 1 rear Then they respoked to a thicker gauge This fixed the problem of the front spokes but alias not the rear Again they respoked the back the wheel to an even thicker gauge They dealer feels that the problem may be with the hubs edco Tandem disc 40 holes Our combined weight is only 142Kgs or 310lbs so this should not be a problem Apart from the spokes the bike has its orginal specs Tires IRC tandem 700 33c Rims mavic T519 40 hole and edco Tan disc hubs The orginal spokes were the black DT champion Stainless steel 14g I would appreciate feedback to our problem Flying Kiwi New Zealand Jared Ratana Ratana inspire net nz Wed Sep 27 06 56 32 PDT 2000 My fiance and I just purchased an RT2000 Surprisingly enough she did not find the ride any harsher than any of the steel tandems we test rode including the Santanas It was the only road style tandem she was comfortable on I was impressed by the precise handling of the bike The brakes do leave a bit to be desired and I ll have to change to a lower granny ring for mountain riding but overall we felt it was the best value for the money we had to spend George Rowland George Rowland growland rmi net Mon Sep 23 17 48 17 PDT 1996 We inherited the mountain bike version of this tandem about 1 year ago and converted it to road use When I ran into problems with converting the gears and replacing the brakes Cannondale was of no help Oddly enough Santana was more than happy to supply me with the custom parts and expertise I needed However now that we have made the modifications this bike is fast and handles well PS 26 wheels are wonderful for road tandem use but I have not yet found tires I really like Any suggestions Chris Hatch beth chris msn com Thu Sep 26 21 34 27 PDT 1996 Great bike Brakes had to be upgraded Mike Sandy Fox foxes foothill net Mon Oct 14 17 38 18 PDT 1996 BEST BIKE I EVER BOUGHT THE WIFE AND I ARE AT LAST ONE MIKE RITA MIKE RIMIKI AOL Wed Oct 23 23 11 45 PDT 1996 We bought one this summer The flat black version is quite a stealth The ride cushion is just fine with the now standard stoker shock post The brakes can be imporved quite satisfactorily by just replacing the brake pads with Ritchey s Very fast accelerating bike Good riding Bill Wylie TiSpoke aol com Thu Oct 31 20 00 57 PST 1996 A magnificently constructed bike Superb handibility I love this bike SINGAPORE wayne net hjk Mon Nov 25 23 51 57 PST 1996 Best tandem on the road period Prior owner of a Rodreguez just now realizing now realizing that real tandems don t flex Tom Shriey simple tc net com Wed Nov 27 11 20 58 PST 1996 First tandem we have owned We both love it This bike is as stiff as my Cannondale road bike Great speed on the flats 30 35 mph with a little effort and can cruise all day at 20 mph Jenny and I are both big people over 400 lbs total and the bike still performs like a champ The long climbs are really a drag but the downhills I start breaking at 55mph are a blast Due to our size and strength we stripped out two rear hubs but Cannondale was 100 cooperative and solved the problem The tires leave much to be desired I run the Conti s at 110 lbs and they are fine on the flat but tend to roll on tight turns I would like a more secure feeling tire Any suggestions I also replaced the bar end shifters and rear derailleur with Campy components This has worked out very well I just don t like taking my hands off the bar to shift The bike draws a lot of attention Seems the oversized tubes are a novelty One last thing When you get a tandem you become very popular on long group rides Everyone but the fastest riders will draft you Lee Jenny Horning poohbaah aol com Wed Dec 4 06 56 58 PST 1996 The Cannondale is our second tandem We don t know why the C Dale got a reputation for a harsh ride since with the standard stoker shock post the ride is great We changed the brake pads and adjusted the cables and it stops very well with good control Changed the bar ends for the Sachs shifter brake combo After re spacing the gears on the rear cluster it shifts beautifully Rides more like a single than a tandem Tom Spohn tspo aol com Sat Dec 7 14 56 08 PST 1996 We bought our C dale road tandem 7 years ago before Cannondale had complete bikes This was great because I wanted to custom build a tandem for speed and boy did it work A suspension post should be on the back of every tandem just because the rear rider cannot see the road warnings or not I ve geared the bike with a 60 48 32 triple up front a 12 28 rear Phil Woods BB s hold it together I use 42t timing rings This is a smooth silent durable combo Much to all the expert s shagrin standard 36 hole Deore XT the old black ones hubs front rear were used and have performed perfectly zero rebuilds Tires You won t believe this but Continental Grand Prix 700 23 s with wire beads are Awesome Zero flats or failures ever At this past summer s MTR in Appleton Ws I could not believe all the flat tires Crazy The Grand Prix is a very supple riding tire even at 120 lbs of pressure and wears like iron It is the perfect road tire I ve tried em all too The Cannondale frame is one of the best riding frames available It carves turns brakes well incredibly stable at high downhill speeds and has none of the frame deflection of most long bikes It is a lousy handeling bike at slow speed under 10 mph though If you are contemplating a slow cruiser I suggest looking at a mtn style tandem with geometry more suited to slower speeds But if you want ot really cover the real estate in a hurry look no further you ll have a ball and will never regret purchasing a Canondale tandem John Katherine Williams jrwpix ptway com Sun Dec 8 12 20 01 PST 1996 We got our Tandem the first of the year 96 and began ridding together for the first time in years We tested several models but fell in love with the bike and the ride We are still slow in going up hill but it is the fault of the engine and not the bike This is our fourth Canondale to date Three singles and our Tandem we call the Beast Yes you have to get used to the tubes but once you do all of the other tandems look skinny Bruce Elaine bbetker apci net Fri Dec 27 08 53 26 PST 1996 My wife Claire and I have been riding our tandem for 6 years now and have enjoyed everymoment of it Although we are very satisfied with our 6 year old Burley Duet we were looking at the Cannondale RT 2000 We would be interested in hearing from some of you that have experienced and compared both these Tandem PS I am taking early retirement in April and we will be riding for the following 6 months in the Calgary Seattle and want to ride the coast to Southern California We normally do most of our riding in the Ottawa Ont Canada area where we reside We would love to hear from Tamdem enthusiasts in these areas Michel Séguin mseguin idrc ca Fri Jan 17 10 36 34 PST 1997 We bought our Cannondale used from a dealer who used it for a rental It has had a lot of wear and tear scratches etc My guess is that it has well over 10K miles on it We ve put on over 5K with a mixture of flatland and mountain rides We have tried various tires and are now using Continental Top Touring tires 110psi Their noticeably very squishy if inflated at less than 100psi especially in hard cornering They are also quite heavy when compared to other tires Their extra mass does make acceleration on this bike seem more sluggish than with other tires Overall the bike is really fast stiff stable and a real thrill on fast long downhills We have only had to replace a rear wheel and freewheel We recently got a Tamer seat post that should help ease the bumps for my stoker Bob Sue George rdgeorge verinet com Thu Jan 30 18 27 33 PST 1997 This is our first tandem As a single rider of cannondales I find the tandem to be a lot smoother then my single My single 2 8 frame is harsh on long distant rides My wife has found the stokers ride very comfy with a coda suspension post I actually like riding our tandem better then our singles Warren

anyone know if there is a child stoker kit available for this type of tandem Any suggestions Thanks Steven Jackson HMRHED6707 aol com Sun May 4 04 54 54 PDT 1997 Our first tandem was a Trek T 100 We recently bought a 97 model RT2000 The brakes are LX and seem to work fine The conti tires flexed too much so I went to an Avocet cross tire which is what I used on the T100 They work very well Since I have a back problem we had the bike shop convert to upright handlebars with Sach shifters and Avid brake levers This works out very well for us We are very happy with our new tandem Rich Moore Supertick cyberhouse org Tue May 13 13 40 40 PDT 1997 Purchased the 92 version of this tandem in 94 from a shop in the Washington D C area that had no interest in selling tandems It is set up with Suntour XC Pro shifters and brakes and GripShift Barcons which initially scared me but have been flawless Gearing is 28 44 54 up front and 13 30 in back and we run out of gear all the time Because our frame is the 21 19 size my boys have been able to ride stoker with no modifications since they were 7 or eight years old a real plus The bike came with Michelin Hi Lite tires folding which I had replaced before it went out of the shop with Conti Top Touring 35 s Yes you do have to pump them to at least 100 lbs or they are squishy and very unpredictable in the smallest road surface irregularities Our wheels are 48 spoke Sun rims with the Sansin wide flange hubs and are silky smooth We ve broken only 1 spoke and our combined weight is 340 lbs I am a very strong 5500 mi per year road rider so breaking things and wearing them out is a way of life Ride is a bit harsh for the stoker as we still have a conventional rear seatpost but this is a FAST bike Generally I have had good experience with Cannondale Toured the entire Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway in June 96 loaded with tent and camping and cooking gear on a T 700 not the tandem a single bike and wouldn t go down those 45 mph descents loaded with a 190 pound rider and 35 pounds of gear with anything else If you re not afraid of hills that is a great ride BEFORE SCHOOL IS OUT I did it in 7 days 600 miles but would suggest at least an extra 2 days We do love our Cannondale tandem Only problem is findinf time to put more miles on it and we would also have to add some type of drum brake if we were doing lots of mountain riding John Debbie jbfam erols com Mon May 26 03 46 56 PDT 1997 My wife and I just purchased our first tandem and we couldn t have made a better decision than the C dale RT 2000 I ve made some changes and this bike is a virtual rocket The first change I made was the brakes upgrade as soon as you can I replaced them with Avid 1D 20 s When used with V dapters you can lock up the back wheel if needed I also replace the bar end shifters with Sach s Ergo which drive a new Sach s rear derailleur The standard wheels I replaced with black Aerospoke 700c which I mounted Conti Grand Prix s The bike is the flat black RTmodel and along with the black Aerospoke wheels this bike looks fast standing still Scott Cook indescott gbonline com Fri May 30 19 02 29 PDT 1997 A Cannondale Mountain

tandem and the very first ride we went on had to replace the gel saddles with our old favorites Brooks B72 and B66 The second replacement was the Peterson SE brakes which failed during some rough rainy riding We ve also replace both wheels with Phil Wood hubs and Weinmann rims After all that we ve had great riding about 4000 miles a year and have been doing loaded touring of 300 mile trips We also rode the tandem from Seattle to St Paul MN this last summer almost without incident We broke a Phil Wood hub when forced off the road in Missoula Montana Other than that we enjoy the stiffness of the frame when climbing hills Fran has a Brooks B66S saddle which has coil springs on it and that has successfully countered most road shock When we hit the pothole in Missoula we both felt it when we hit We have had many compliments on the bike and really enjoy it Tom Ostertag tostertag tcilink com Wed Sep 17 09 12 00 PDT 1997 I am looking for a suitable tire replacement for the cont touring tires

that I see I am pleased as can be I threw away the Scott Peterson self de energizers and put some XTR V brakes with travel agents to make them work better Campy ergo levers and rear derailluer I left the original Suntour XC front with its longer cage it handles the 28T granny I also have the Arai drum brake which is now hooked up with the rear V brake via another chi chi whose name I forget It took a while to set up correctly but works great now and we are looking forward to a great season of rippin downhills and twisting roads of N Cal 8000 days last year more power this season As for other peoples tire woes Conti GrandPrix s rule but they cut before they wear out and are way pricey in the folding versions The super sport ultras in 700x23C feel great and are a lot cheaper For training in bad roads and other road detritus try the Specialized Armadillo s in 700x26C they don t handle near as nice as the Conti s but the kevlar belt gives you a nice feeling of invincibility

when the tandem frame is 23 19 or 21 19 and fitted with the CODA suspension post when the post is inserted as far down as possible Any help would be really appreciated Thanks Chris Henkens henky2

change of tires Performance Kevlar belted 700x28 our group now has voted on a 27mph speed limit on the winding back road sections Otherwise we open it up on the straight and flat sections This is where the half bikes tuck in and HANG on Had some minor adjustments to get the shifting to work smoothly but its getting real close to where I want it Now I can drag any one of my family along for a

half bike riders as we stand up and motor over the rolling hills and cruise the flats However I would suggest swapping the Conti s for the Specialized Armadillos and when or if the RX100 front derailleur gets loose and doesn t shift well upgrading to the 105 triple it s a real improvement and can shift easily over the 54 48 28 we use here in the hills of Idaho Bill Smith smitwil1 isu edu Thu Mar 12 10 33 52 PST 1998 I got broken into tandems by a buddy of mine in 1982 on a Santanna Sovereign My wife and I bought a C dale June of 97 we almost didn t buy the bike as we had decided that we like our independence while riding too much to give up I knew that we were cutting the check however when I heard her say from the backsomething about being able to see things she couldn t see before while on her single This is nothing like a steel tandem Stiff and solid and it goes like a train without any sign of weave I swapped the stock inner chainring for a 28 tooth ring which takes some of the sting out of the hills C dale needs to pay attention to the brakes they spec stopping the two of us is a real handful A disk or drum in addition to the cantilevers should be standard equipment on ANY tandem Otherwise no complaints my wife and I wouldn t wait so long to get a tandem now that we know what it s all about Ted Smith ttsmithaia worldnet att net Wed Mar 18 18 31 16 PST 1998 I own a 2 to 3 year old blue version of this bike Of the twenty bikes I own this is one of the prettiest and most fun to ride It took several months of tinkering and part replacement before I dialed it in Cannondale could have paid a little more attention to the brakes and the tires Specifically the brakes are laughably ineffective I upgraded the cantilevers to Shimano XTR and the levers to Shimano The rear brake bridge is too near the yoke which limits adjustment and ultimately stopping power The Continental tires even after multiple miles squeak in the corners and do not provide the handling one would normally expect from Continental The shock post in the rear is an excellent addition which for those of us trying to convince our wives to ride is a big plus The rest of the components seem to get the job done and keep the price down Michael Laurie michael l laurie em fcnbd com Fri Mar 20 12 46 49 PST 1998 Wed Mar 25 05 28 06 PST 1998 My fiance got a diamond ring I got a Cannondale road tandem As a self professed steel frame fanatic I expected to be the last to extoll the virtues of aluminum However the extra stiffness really seems to make sense with the extra length you need for a tandem It is simply a joy to be able to ride for hours with my wife Before we couldn t ride together now its poetry in motion We use 28c Continental tires at 110 and have experienced absolutely no rolling I agree with the other writers that the brakes need some help on this bike but overall I am very impressed Just don t expect me to give up my Italian single road frame Randy McCalla Fri Apr 24 17 15 34 PDT 1998 We bought our RT2000 after our first ride on singles It was a 1997 closeout We bought from Aurora Cycle in Seattle and they were awesome They spent over 5 hours fitting my wife and I Although the kids don t let us ride much we just rode our first organized ride in May The bike is awesome on the way back from the Redhook brewery my wife the stoker told our single rider friends Well we are going to cruise for awhile so see ya later Boy talk about power arrogance Anyways we flew for 10 miles until we stopped and waited for them This tandem is a blast Frederic Lambert lambert1 gte com Thu May 28 18 30 44 PDT 1998 I am very close to purchasing a C dale tandem However I am having a difficult time choosing between the rt1000 and mt1000 The feedback on the rt s sound real positive Anyone have any experience with the mountain version that they might be able to share Thanks Walter wsiwanicki Mon Jun 22 09 24 08 PDT 1998 We are newbies to the tandem thing and are fast becoming addicted Purchashed our 25 21 C dale RT1000 in Mar 98 Have been upgrading all along XTR V s are a must Get the Quality Travel Agents and the STI levers work great Am

corgicymric prodigy net Mon Jul 6 13 44 37 PDT 1998 Since purchasing our 97 Cannondale RT2000 we have put over 7000 hilly miles on it What a great ride Whether on fast club rides or touring the hills of Arkansas our RT2000 is fast light and dependable We simply upgraded the brake pads to Cool Stops and now the braking is excellent The only problem
