|1985 Ritchey mountain bike tandem|
Some pictures of a Tom Ritchey tandem from 1985. There is no serial number on it. We got it from Point Reyes Cycles, in Point Reyes, Ca. They had 4 of them in different colors. I would guess that he only made 4 of this type of bike.
It’s a double diamond design, it is unusual in having a very slack headtube, about 66 degrees. The handling is a bit odd as tandems go, but easy to get used to.

|The entire bike is fillet brazed. Lots of brass in this seat cluster, applied with great skill. Ritchey stoker stem.|
|Rear seat cluster.|
|The roller cam brakes with Magura levers do a great job stopping this bike.|
