Riding a tandem with friends and family should be easy. The Periscope Scout allows back-seaters of different sizes to get comfortable. You don't even need tools to adjust the seat height! The Periscope Scout is an outstanding entry-level tandem that is handbuilt with care in Eugene, Oregon. Co-Motion's own tandem-specific butted chro-moly steel frame offers high strength for precise handling as well as light weight. The Periscope boasts 40-spoke alloy wheels, ensuring durability over years of riding. Continental's UltraSport tires, bringing a smooth feel and confident handling to every mile. Cable-operated Avid disc brakes aren't just for riding in the rain, but also make stopping distances clearer. Mounts for a rear rack and up to 4 bottle cages add versatility for day-long excursions.
When tackling hills and inclines, a generous gearing range is more important than ever on a tandem. The Periscope Scout's alloy triple crankset and wide range rear cassette offers a less-than 1-to-1 gear ratio for climbing steep inclines. The Periscope Scout features Shimano's 10-speed Deore derailleurs and RapidFire trigger-style shifters, boasting easy operation.
The back seater's (or, stoker's) handlebar and stem are adjustable, including a telescoping feature for simple adjustments. Up front, an alloy handlebar and stem add an upright fit for relaxed riding.
