Bryson 530

bryson 530

Last year I started carring the Bryson Bicycle computers,  The Bryson 100 and the 310,  the reson I brought them in was that they were GPS computers that the charge would last for 30 plus hours.  My Garmin would only last 9 hours so a two day ride I would have to go in search of a electrical outlet to charge up for the second day ride.  No need with the Bryson, have used it for 3days in a row and it still will go longer.  The 530 is a full GPS with mapping with the largest screen of any computer on the market.  and the best thing is it is about half the price of the Garmin.

A 2013 Jamis Xenith  SL Demo, this was my personal bike and I enjoyed it for a number of years but as you know if you own a bike shop you don’t get to ride very much.  Its in  mint condition, 2×10 Sram Red drive train, FSA K Force light crank, Fizi:k saddle, ZIPP 404  wheels, 3T carbon handlebars and seat post. Size is 58cm   This bike was $8000.00 when new, Now just $3500.00 and I will throw in a set of practice wheels for free.

Co-Motion Java Rohloff


The Java Rohloff is one of the best travel tandems, no chains, no grease.  The bike goes together in about one hour, just four couplers and three cable connecters.  Wendy and I took one to Colorado for a week, we road on pavement, dirt roads, even hiking trails.  the Java Rohloff did it all even at 13000 feet of elevation where the riders didn’t do as well as the bike.  We can build with Drop handlebars, Flat handlebars, or even Jones Bars.  If you are looking for a great touring tandem look no farther.

Co-Motion Periscope Torpedo


The Co-Motion Periscope Torpedo was developed so that the Owner of Co-Motion Dwan Shepard could ride with is daughter.  But it has become even more popular with woman who don’t like to throw there leg over a high top bar, and with couples that have a wide height difference.  Wendy and I have ridden one for over a month and found it very comfortable.

Pinion Drive


Pinion Drive has arrived, Midwest Bike & Tandem is one of the first shops to show the new 18speed internal drive bikes in the US.  Although the snow is coming down we received a 58cm Co-motion Klack this week.  Haven’t been able to ride it but looks very interesting.  18 speeds with no overlap, each gear with the same spacing, Gates belt drive what could be better.  Come  on in a try it out.

Da Vinci Symbiosis XC




This bike is a BEAST whether you are blasting down a fire road or pushing hard in your favorite race. The Symbiosis has become the benchmark for off road/cross country tandems. With race wins in the 24 Hour of Moab, Leadville 100, and Vail Ultra 100 you can see that the suspension does its job, and delivers a great ride in the roughest trail. With the drop top tube you get a much better standover and suspension adjustment. It is now available in both 27.5 or 29 wheels. My wife and I had a 27.5 plus size and enjoy riding the fire roads trails of northern Michigan
