Granite Tandem Design

A storied account of custom built tandem bicycles and the places they take us.

Sometimes it’s easy to find your next bike that will take your further, faster, and climb higher effortlessly, but as we shopped around over the course of 3 years (we’re overly analytical) we just weren’t finding what we wanted. We wanted our travel bike to be our favorite bike AND our fast bike. We wanted to ride in tire eating mud AND fast tarmac. We wanted our bike to fit us perfectly AND accommodate our growing family. We looked at our options and we just weren’t satisfied, so we built our bike from scratch. We loved it so much, we built this company to offer the same experience to others.

Change is inevitable, and for the most part, a good thing. No matter the sport, as time passes technology influences the design of our equipment. Advancements are made in performance and durability. And, even the sport evolves over time. I know many people that remember when mountain bikes were introduced, then front shocks, followed by full-suspension. Each evolutionary step allowing riders to take on more terrain. Form follows function. That’s our philosophy. We strive to push those evolutionary steps forward with tandem design so that you can conquer your own frontier.

Our own frontier wasn’t necessarily gravel, hillclimb, travel and touring, family rides or racing, but all of those things. We wanted to create a tandem that didn’t compromise our diverse interests. We wanted to bring our favorite bike traveling, able to take on mixed-terrain, but not slow us down climbing. We realize not everyone has the exact wishlist as us and that’s why building each bike based on the individual riders’ interests is so important. You get exactly what you need to for your intended riding without the compromises.
