A great opportunity to get started riding a tandem or to upgrade to e-assist

You can read about daVinci Tailwind II Electric Road Tandem on their website. Even if you know about tandems check out how daVinci’s unique independent coasting works. We love being able to take turns standing or coasting which is not possible on any other tandem! See more photos at the very bottom.

We love this tandem and named her Tess for the Tesla we’ll never own. You can see her being built and our unpacking on this post. There are two years of documented bike trips with lots of photos on our website. Here are the 2021 trips and these are the 2022 trips. We’d stored her after the Nova Scotia trip last fall and then on January 10, 2023 she was stolen while locked in our building’s bike storage area. You can read the full story AND about how we recovered it two months later. In the interim, assuming we’d never see Tess again, we located and purchased a different tandem. Hence the need to sell this one! We hope to find it a good home. We’re in Seattle on Capitol Hill. Ideally someone in the Pacific NW will want her. But we can work it out if you’ll need shipping.
