To purchase a bike equipped with S and S Couplings, have S and S Couplings retrofit to an existing bike, find out if your bike can be retrofit with couplings or to purchase cases and accessories, please contact a retailer or framebuilder listed on this web site.
S and S Machine does not attempt to determine whether you bike is suitable for retrofitting or not.
Only a framebuilder can make that determination. Some framebuilders are more interested in doing retrofits than others.
Looking at our photo gallery of retrofitted singlesand tandems may be helpful in finding a builder to retrofit your bike.

To ask technical questions that can't be answered by a framebuilder or to get coupling pricing (pricing is for professional bicycle framebuilders only) please contact us
