Life in Tandem. Simmonsohn channels Danish and Scandinavian influences across all aspects of design. We value the importance of practicality and functionality. Our designs promote group activities with the belief that we are stronger together.

Modern technology has continuously improved component and frame designs, because of this tandems are no longer considered a novelty item. Their resurgence in popularity is due to the very nature that they can be as well-built as modern high-end bikes, with all the same technical specifications. They have the ability to perform to the same level as traditional, two wheeled bikes if the riders require. Whether shared mountain biking or casual leisure cycling is on the menu, the rustic Simmonsohn range has a model to suit everyone's aesthetic tastes and practical requirements.

Simmonsohn Gothenburg Mountain Series Tandem  

The Gothenburg from our Mountain Series is the perfect tandem bike for younger couples who enjoy cycling on a regular basis. The Gothenburg is great for your next camping break, allowing you to explore both on and off road, making the most of the break. Perfect for couples or friends who prefer to share the experience of a cycle ride. The Gothenburg is built around Simmonsohn's tandem specific aluminium mountain series frame. The new frame design results in a lowwer step over height for the stoker position. Up front is a set of adjustable Suntour suspension forks allowing fine tuning to iron out the bumps or firm them up to eat up the miles on the black stuff. The 21 speed transmission system comprises of Shimano EZ fire push button gear shifters with super precise Shimano derailleurs. The large range of gear ratios will help you cope with everything the terrain throws at you. Powerful V type brakes coupled with Simmonsohn double wall rims and Schwalbe Marathon tyres give excellent control on the road or tracks.
