SKU: TDM-FAN-DC9 Category:


Your team can really FLY on this one!

A fantastic singletrack weapon, a comfortable dirt tourer, and a competitive race rig right out of the box, the DC-9 is our most popular model for good reason! Now with added capability – Choose our classic 29 x 2.35″ wheel/tire setup, new Plus-sized 27.5 x 3.0″ wheels and tires, or get the better of both with a 29″ x  2.6 – 2.8″ wheel/tire setup.

The heart of the DC-9 is our Made in USA Fandango 29’er 6000 series aluminum hardtail MTB Tandem frame, combined with the lightweight and capable MRP Loop 100T or Ribbon tandem fork. Optional Cane Creek Helm or Ohlins RXF 36 also available for select builds!

Fandango’s frame design and geometry is geared towards responsiveness and efficiency on off-road, singletrack trails, yet still offers a comfortable and user-friendly platform with features such as extra frame clearance for fenders and rack mounts. A true all-rounder, the DC-9 will eat singletrack for breakfast, and then spend the rest of the day dirt road touring or acting as the family pack-mule. Opt for either of the optional wheelset sizes (or just have 2 wheelsets) and enjoy even more versatility on varied surfaces!

The DC-9 offers our premium build kit, which offers great performance, durability and longevity, while keeping the tandem weight (and cost) at a reasonable level. 

The DC-9 offers the best “bang for the buck” in off-road tandems! Check out the details and see what a great value Fandango offers!

Note: Some colors shown are optional. Compete tandem weight is around 40lbs. depending on frame size and build kit options.
