This tandem frame is custom built in England by Bob Jackson's and lead time is currently 3 months
The Summit Sapphire is the perfect tandem for couples wanting a fast day riding tandem and it's perfect for sportive riding too. The price of £6,500 includes 4 couplings allowing the tandem to be split into 2 hard cases for flying with.

Every frame is hand made to order by Bob Jackson Cycles of Leeds, so we can create a tandem that fits you perfectly. Bob Jacksons have been building frames for over 80 years and this experience shows in the beautiful brazing and finishing.

Because each single Summit tandem is made to order the specification can be varied to suit your exact needs, the Sapphire can be built with Rohloff gearing or with a 30 speed groupset, the specification below shows it with drop handlebars, but we build with flat handlebars too.

The Summit Sapphire frame is designed using modern geometry and built mainly with 853 Reynolds air hardened tubing. The location of the couplings can be varied and we also build a 2 coupling version which reduces the price by around £700.

The tandem is then assembled in our Gargrave workshop, using top quality components from companies such as Shimano, Sram, Continental, Tubus & DT Swiss.

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

Weight around 19kg depending on frame size & specification.
