This tandem frame is custom built in England by Bob Jackson's and lead time is currently 4 months
The Summit Tour brings traditionally built steel touring tandems bang upto date. This model has been created for couples who want a nice fast, yet comfortable, day riding tandem that rides equally well loaded up for touring.

The frame is hand-built, exclusively for Orbit Tandems, by Bob Jackson of Leeds. Bob Jackson have been building frames for over 80 years and this experience shows in the beautiful brazing and finishing.

The frame is designed using modern geometry and built with Reynolds 631 tubing, an 853 option is also available.

S&S couplers are fitted as standard, making this tandem not just a dream to ride and stunning to look at, but easy to travel with. A 6 coupling version is also available, this adds £1,000.

The Summit is built in our Gargrave workshop, using top quality components from companies such as Reynolds, Rohloff, Schwalbe, Tubus & DT Swiss

Every frame is made to order, so we can create a tandem that fits you perfectly.

There's a choice of nearly 70 different colours and some of the most popular are British racing green, viola metallic, ruby red, green, amber & royal blue flamboyant.

Available in 26" & 700c wheel sizes

The larger of the 2 pieces when uncoupled is 1.54m long for the 3 coupled model and of course much smaller for the 6 coupled version.

Weight in medium size, as pictured, 21kg
