The Orbit Tandem brand is owned by John & Ruth Hargreaves, owners of JD Tandems. They bought the tandem side of Orbit’s business back in 2006. Some six years later the range has expanded from just three models to over a dozen different tandems, all of which are available in a great range of frame sizes and include both 26" and 700c wheel options.
The aluminium frames are made in Taiwan by Kinesis, a very well known top quality frame manufacturer. The steel frames are hand built in Yorkshire by Bob Jackson, who are well known as first class frame builders. All Orbit tandem frames carry a 10 year warranty
Every Orbit tandem is assembled with good quality components. The wheels are hand built at the premises in Gargrave, Near Skipton, North Yorkshire. Every single wheel is built using DT spke tension meter and this attention to quality is reflected on the component selection on all the models.
The Orbit tandem range caters for a wide range of riders, from couples looking for their first tandem to experienced tandem riders wanting to invest in their dream machine.
The tandems are all built to order, so should you wish to make any changes to the standard recommended models this can easily be accommodated when making the purchasing decision. Test ride models are available of every tandem in the range and these are available to view and try before you buy at the JD Tandems showroom in Gargrave.
Ruth & John are also very experienced in dealing with mail order sales for their tandems and components, so if a visit to the showroom isn’t possible then contact them on 01756 748400 and they will talk you through the mail order buying process.
