Getting it dirty…. what it was made for.

AMPeirce tandem testing

Tammy and I finally got out on the new “beast”. We put some flat pedals on and  ran it through mud, slush and snow and it handled great, the big tires and slacker head tube angle are definitely an improvement . We managed to stay on it most of the time. Ever run a tandem in the snow, slush and mud? Great fun, can’t wait to get it on some dry dirt….. but for now the wet will have to do.

    That’s a really terrific bike. Good to see it in its natural element, and I bet it’s tremendous fun. Even better is to know that you’re not just the builder, but the owner who gets to appreciate the ride.

    I talked with you briefly on Friday and Gary a bit more on Saturday. Through Cass’ blog, I’ve seen and admired your handiwork. I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with next.

    Andy, glad to see you wasted no time getting out on it after the show. It does look great with the mud! It was a pleasure to meet you and Tammy this past weekend. I took a look at your site and was quite impressed. You are a very talented builder and fabricator. You put a lot of work into that tandem and it all turned out awesome. I look forward to seeing what you create in the future.

    I think it’s even prettier with mud on it!
