Counterpoint!This is the tandem that I've coveted for 15 years. It's a Counterpoint Opus tandem, and it's the perfect "long bike" for a single person.
Comfy lawn chair seat has its own five-speed derailleur and freewheel (shhh!). Makes it easier for beginner cyclists, who tend to prefer a slower cadence.
Adjustable front boom fits a wide variety of picked-up stokers.
Lighter weight and shorter wheelbase than a regular tandem. Easier to transport and store.
If you can't find a vict—I mean, riding partner, you can carry a bag of groceries, a musical instrument, a stuffed animal, your cat...

NEW! Counterpoint goes on GOBA!

The original manufacturer sold the patent to Bilenky Cycles a few years ago, and it is now available as the Viewpoint.

Looking for a used Counterpoint or Viewpoint? Or do you have one that needs a good home? Send me a message and I'll play "switchboard." (This is the only website dedicated to these wonderful bikes, which is a darned shame.)
Reach me at veloise (at) earthlink (dot) net. I'm in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

On a day trip...the van bench seat, a sousaphone, the Counterpoint, and a road bike all fit in the back; no wheels removed!


At Tim Maloney's party. A dozen folks went around the block with me. Great fun at parties when the conversation lags!
