The Very Last One

...they always say that.

Except, it is. The last one they built.

Wow, congrats!

I remember talking to Tom and Jeff about a steel tandem some years ago, and they commit to building not many of these due to the labor involved...yours came out fantastic and I bet it will ride even better.

Awesome! Would you mind posting a pic of the full fork?

My wife and I so want to try a tandem, but at 6' 5", 5' 11" and a combined no bike weight ~400 lbs tandem shops just look and laugh informing us that there is nothing stock out there that would come close to fitting us well enough to yield a positive experience.

Fork: 1.125" steerer, all steel, 380mm axle to crown. Double plate crown and reinforced blades.
100X12 through axle, ISO brake mount. Tom included the adapter for 203mm brake disc, which is a nice touch.

THAT's an appropriate work stand(/lift) for a tandem....

Tom and Jeff do phenomenal work. Another steel beauty with a great choice on colors.

Slowly getting there.
Wheels are 40 spoke Phil hubs with Astral Leviathan rims (thanks Colonel), 40mm Schwalbe tubeless.
Finding seatposts in 30.4mm has not been easy.
Groupset is Ultegra Di2.
Need some cables and hydraulic lines/connections, and should be done.
