We are pleased to announce the GiGi line of Fandango gravel tandems.
With the increase in interest in gravel and dirt road riding, we decided to put our own spin on the category, and create a tandem specific to the needs of gravel and path riders.
More than just warmed-over road design (or warmed over mtb design), the GiGi is what we envision as the best platform for exploring roads of all types, from smooth pavement to “there used to be a road here somewhere” and everything in between.
The result: GiGi! Made-in-USA Fandango 6061 Aluminum frame with the requisite Fandango craftmanship. Clearance for 29 (700) x up to 2.6″ tires to accommodate exploration on all road surfaces. Frame geometry that uses the best of both mtb and road frame design, combined in a very versatile package.
Short version: GiGi is designed around drop bars and big tires. Here’s where we go a bit out on our own limb: GiGi also offers a 60mm travel suspension fork option for the rougher roads and paths. Also, we’ve learned over the years of building MANY MTB tandems over the years what works in less-than-ideal conditions, so GiGi drivetrain options include SRAM AXS 1×12 wireless shifting, SRAM 1×11 conventional shifting, and Shimano 2×11 shifting.
GiGi is all Fandango, assembled to order for you. Yes, we can do substitutions and changes in your build. Yes, we still build our wheels in-house. Yes, each Fandango is built one at a time specifically for you when you order. And yes, GiGi is backed by MTB Tandems’ usual and customary high level of customer service and support.
We’re excited about this new project and addition to the Fandango family. Check out the various GiGi models and let us know what you think!
