Default Ibis Touche tandem!

Finished today: my (our) Ibis Touche tandem. I bought the frame in new condition and built it up myself. It has Campy Velocity brakes and gears, White Industries hubs, King headset, Truvativ tandem cranks, Profile bars, Thomson posts, Velocity rims, Conti tyres and Wheelsmith spokes.

Gorgeous job. Maybe enough to inspire me to get off my butt and finish my Ibis Alibi singlespeed conversion.

That really turned out nice!
Curious how the stoker is set up, what do you think range is for a rider?
But the most important question is: how does it ride??

Yo have got quite a range for the stoker. It is now at the perfect height for my wife, but with the long Thomson post you can easily raise the saddle some inches. The fully adjustable stoker stem can be made to fit just perfect.
The ride is really good too. It is stable and fast. Besides it is really fun to ride like this.
