I'm thinking of getting a tandem which we can use offroad, nothing too extreme as my wife is a novice MTB'er. I don't want to spend a fortune so was thinking of buying something like the Raleigh Pioneer to start.
Does anyone have any experience of the Raleigh and know if this is a relatively strong frame I can use and upgrade over time? I'm not too worried about the weight, I just don't want to buy a frame which will crack or worse as soon as I give it any stress offroad.
I've already got a pair of suspension forks and some xt disc brakes I could use on the 1st upgrade.
I'd also be interested if anyone's got a 2nd hand tandem for sale.
Any advise will be appreciated
