Model description (provided by builder)
As the only builder with the experience and know-how to make such a bike, we didn't mind at all! In fact, Co-Motion Cycles opened the door for this category with the Sky Capp's custom predecessors.
Now you can have the Sky Capp without the added cost and longer delivery time needed for a custom tandem. But that doesn't mean we've spared any of the details that make this a great tandem. As with the Co-Pilot, we have integrated the couplers into the frame sensibly, for simple and trouble-free compactability and reassembly. Each BTC is fully supported in the butted section of the tube, including our oval-round-oval bottom tube. Our Apex frame design, which puts far less stress on the top tube than other beam designs, is ideal for the Sky Capp and an unbeatable way to support the Softride beam. To facilitate packing and reassembly, we have also added a quick-release pin to the Softride beam's nose-mount.
Making your travel tandem your best tandem has never been easier.
