005 Tandems


Considering Argus Tandeming? - consult the master frame-builder, Francois du Toit:

Social tandeming during the Argus Cycle Tour shows increase in popularity. The drawback is mechanical failure and the challenges of Ou Kaapse Weg. Tandems are fast on the slopes but deadly slow on the climbs. This can damage a partnership, relationship or marriage. Communication between pilot and stoker is very important. Just ask Francois du Toit, five-times winner of the Argus Tandem Cycle Tour during the early eighties. Many of those earlier Le Jeune tandems are still functional and on the road.

New tandems are very expensive. Why not consider upgrading or refitting an older model du Toit tandem? Phone Francois du Toit, master frame builder, on 9100441 or 0832731986 for a quotation. Francois fits both racing and social tandems.

For a comprehensive review on tandems and the Argus Cycle Tour, consult the chapter on Ride Your Best Argus to be released by Tafelberg Publishers during November 2001. The chapter also contains expert tandem tips by Andrew Mc Clean of Cyclelab (Cyclelab: http://www.cyclelab.com ) For additional information on training zones, consult Ride(c) Magazine 3: 86-87, 2000. An excellent review on disabled cyclists (visually impaired) was provided by Martin in Ride(c) 3: 10, 2000.
