Fandango Drop Bar Gravel Tourer – Premium Build


SKU: TDM-FAN-DC9-1 Category:


The Fandango Gravel Machine!

After numerous customer requests, we took a clean-sheet,  approach to creating a gravel/dirt performance Fandango. With a real-world road-ready weight of around 38lbs, this Fandango redefines the performance 29’er hardtail Gravel Tandem  category.

The heart of this lightweight speedster is our Made in USA Fandango 29’er 6000 series aluminum hardtail 29’er frame, paired with the lightweight. Add a steel thru-axle fork designed for both gravel and touring abuse. As with all current Fandangos, this tandem frame and fork can also accommodate 27.5 x 3″ tires/wheels (should your gravel be more gnarly…).

Yes, it’s still a Fandango, the best-handling and most capable hardtail tandem frame available today. Street tires on a Jeep? Yeah, sort of the same with this tandem. There should be no limits to what you can ride, right? As with all Fandangos, our 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. This is still a Fandango and as such, still quite the all-rounder. Eat singletrack for breakfast, and then spend the rest of the day dirt road touring or even acting as the family pack-mule.

The Gravel Tourer features our Premium build kit, which offers top-level performance at the lowest practical weight. Optional Shimano DI2 drivetrain is also available.

We think the Fandango Gravel Tourer represents the best performance alloy hardtail gravel and dirt/touring tandem currently available!
