Family Tandem

Call for Price Complete Bike 700C

Remember how you used to ride together before the kid came along? Your lives change as your family grows. You take a bike ride after work; your spouse goes to the gym in the morning while you watch the kid. You find yourself thinking that in spite of the family bond you’ve all found together, you spend far too much time apart. Isn’t it time to bring it all back together? Co-Motion’s innovative PeriScope tandems have been embraced as the most versatile family-friendly tandems made. They developed the PeriScope Trident in response to your feedback and to push the PeriScope concept a step further.
A natural progression for the PeriScope model from its inception in 2005, now growing into a new line of triplets with the innovative telescoping seat masts and adjustable stems. Virtually fits almost any family.

Family Tandem

CFP Complete Bike not airline checkable (4 S&S couplers)
CFP Complete Bike airline checkable (6 S&S couplers)

This triplet gives you the ability to convert from a tandem to a triplet in just a few minutes. Like your growing family, the PeriScope Trident and Trident Convertible are a natural progression for the family of PeriScope tandems. Co-Motion would like to grow with you, and using their innovative telescoping seat mast system, they’ve made it easy for you to adjust your Trident for virtually any 3 people who want to ride!

Both the PeriScope Trident and Trident Convertible have incredible fitting capability for nearly every family. The Trident Convertible has the added ability to convert from triplet to tandem (double). If you’re uncertain that you want a full-time triplet, now you have the option of a triplet that can also serve as a tandem.

Note: Although the PeriScope Trident Convertible is fitted with S&S Couplings for the purpose of conversion from triplet to tandem and back again, it is not designed as a travel bike, nor does it fit into airline-checkable luggage. If you’d like to have a PeriScope Trident built for airline-checkability, please contact us.
