Ritchey Skyliner Tandem 1994
Tom Ritchey only made 108 Skyliner tandems and this was the last one. He built it for a good friend of mine who worked for him for many, many years. That rider/owner quit riding it in 1998 and I bought it from him in 2008. Of course, the fillet brazing is second-to-none and its a fantastic purpose-built bike for riding dirt roads and trails. We’ve ridden it in two double centuries and other road events, too, with 1.4″ road slicks, but it’s most at home in the dirt where it rolls beautifully and attracts a lot of attention.
This is the personal bike of Chris Kostman.
