Ritchey TandM Break-Away Gravel/Travel/Adventure Tandem

The Ritchey TandM Break-Away tandem is Tom Ritchey’s take on a travel tandem. The frame can be disassembled into 3 sections for packing into the included travel cases. The frame will fit either 700x40mm or 650x55mm wheels/tires, thereby offering lots of versatility for many different road surfaces.

If you want a travel tandem that will hold up to heavy use and can travel on all road surfaces, this is your tandem!

We've added our 1x12 Cable-Actuated drop-bar adventure build to provide the ultimate in simplicity, durability and versatility in a traveling tandem.

For all of your adventures, near or far!
