Cannondale's passion is to be the best bicycle company in the world. Their focus is on people, the people who work for Cannondale, and the people who buy their fine bicycles. Quite simply, Cannondale wants to build the tandem that you've dreamed about!
Nowhere are the benefits of large-diameter aluminum tubes showcased more dramatically than in a Cannondale tandem. Conventional chrome-moly tandem frames have a reputation for being heavy and inefficient - courtesy of the extra-long tubes used in their construction. Cannondale's use of aluminum results in a frame that's up to 25% lighter and stiffer than just about any steel frame on the market.
Where are the 2013 Cannondale tandems? As explained in our 2012 catalog, Cannondale moved their production from Pennsylvania to Asia. They did this so that they could continue to offer the highest quality bicycle at a reasonable price, bicycles that would live up to the Cannondale name and reputation.
Unfortunately, the 2013 Cannondale tandem didn’t make the transition. Tandems, Ltd is in close contact with the Cannondale team, and we have been assured that Cannondale believes tandems are a viable product and will be returning to their production line-up in late 2013, but no details have been officially released as this catalog is being prepared. Anything printed or posted on-line as of April, 2013, is only speculation.
