Duplex

Custom-built here in Glasgow, the Duplex tandem tricycle is perfect for stable, fast touring with two people. Built entirely out of aerospace-grade seamless 4130 steel, fillet-brazed, it has S&S frame separators as standard to make it much easier to store and transport.

Because it is built to order, anything is possible, but the “standard” specification shown here is a good mix – three chainrings and a 3×9 rear wheel to give 81 gears in a very wide spread, twin hydraulic front disc brakes, a rear disc brake with parking lock, mudguards and carrier.

    Could the Duplex tandem trike be equipped with electric assistance? I was thinking of a Bafang bottom bracket kit but this wouldn’t be suitable for the front as shown (left side chainring) and it looks like the rear would obstruct the motor. Could a rear wheel drive work?

      Yes, a rear hub motor like a Heinzmann would work, in combination with a rear derailleur – no hub gears of course.

    Could it be built with an upright stoker position?

    • admin says:

      Theoretically yes, but I’m not sure how stable that would be – the high stoker would be very far back from the centre of stability, so it might be prone to tipping over in corners. And of course it wouldn’t be like a Pino, the stoker would be much higher up than the pilot.
