Strong enough for all-adult teams, most of Santana’s family bikes are custom-designed for parents with growing children. With optional child stoker kits installed in the center or rear riding positions, these models can be converted back-and-forth between adult and child configurations in minutes. While any builder can produce a frame with additional seats, your best buy will be an adaptable bike that your family won’t outgrow. After building over 300 stretch tandems Santana has more design and construction expertise than all other builders combined.
Our most popular family bikes, a Triplet can be built in an amazing number of permutations. Choose from 700c or 26” wheels, drop or upright bars, and chromoly, scandium or titanium tubing.
Quad, Quint & Hex
Santana’s thirty years of tandem-building experience has enabled us to build stable Quads, Quints and Hexes, so your entire family can ride together efficiently and safely.
Can’t decide between a triplet for your family or a Stowaway™ tandem for romantic getaways with your spouse? It’s amazing how many young couples face this difficult choice—and here’s the answer. Santana’s Cabrio is a triplet (or quad) that can be transformed into a tandem by simply removing the center section of the frame. Thanks to its strategically-placed frame couplers, the resulting tandem or triplet can be stowed into one or two suitcases that will travel through airports unnoticed.
