And Baby Makes 3...I mean 4..... I mean 5....
From Just $5,999 for a full bike

Do you have a growing problem? Is your family outgrowing your bicycle? Give us a call, we can help. R+E Cycles is one of the few manufacturers that can build bicycles for 3, 4, 5...you name it! Until recently, we haven't put them on the website....I don't know why.

Over the last several years, we've built dozens of long bikes (bikes longer than a tandem). Some of which, like the one I'm riding in the picture above, will convert to a tandem with the use of S&S couplings.

You have questions?

  • How do I transport a bike like this?
  • How do I store a bike as long as this?
  • Will we ride it enough to make it worth the investment?
We have answers

Of note, in 2010 we built a quad tandem for four guys riding across Canada to raise awareness of four different charities. "4 guys, 4 causes, 1 bike" was their motto, and they succesfully completed their ride on their Rodriguez Quad Tandem. You can see a picture of that quad here.

We also built a quint a few winters back, in 2007. Not just any quint though, one that would convert to a quad, triple or tandem! The final bike wound up from wheel to wheel almost 15 feet long! Every long bike creation is built custom, and is quoted out individually. Although these extra long creations are never cheap, our price is generally quite a bit less than the other manufacturers. We also don't mind building these monsters at any time of year. Some manufacturers will only build them in the off season.

If your family has grown to the point where you think you might like to try a triple, quad, or quint, don't buy before getting a quote from us. You might be pleasantly surprised.

No matter how long or how custom your bicycle needs to be, we've probably built one like it already.

Pricing
The Rodriguez Triple ST, is our starting price point for a Long Bike at just $5,999. It's packed with features, and priced several thousand less than other brands with less features.

New for 2017 is the Triple Double. Now you can buy just one bike to be your triple and your tandem. It's a great value for just $6,999. check it out below.

If neither of these models serve your needs, that's not a problem, custom is our specialte. Often, people have different ideas as to what is important on their long bike, so it can be better to work together with you on the pricing as we determine the features that you want. Shoot us an email with some of your questions if you'd like to find out more about a Rodriguez extra long bike.

About the Rodriguez Triple ST

The Triple ST is about the lowest cost way to get into a triple. It's a triple built custom for the three of you. This is a great bike for riding with the kids, sporting around town, or even light touring. The design is based on our Toucan ST design. Even though it's our least expensive triple, we still build this bike custom sized for each of you. This bike comes standard with one telescoping 'super-adjustable' seat post to provide a very wide range of rider height compatibilities. This is very convenient for growing kids. You can have 2 or all 3 seat posts done this way if you like for an additional charge.

Another great feature of the Triple ST is the fact that it can be easily taken in half for easy transport. Many people don't realize that this is a necessity when purchasing a long bike because they are often too long to even fit into a pick-up truck when full length.

Experience

When you buy a Rodriguez bike, you're buying years years of x-tra long bike building experience. That's right! We've been building tandems since 1973. That makes us one of the oldest, if not the oldest tandem manufacturers still making tandems in the United States.

Did you Know? We even have patents on two tandem specific parts: Our Bushnell® Eccentric, and our Big Squeeze® Brakes.

About the Triple-Double

The Triple-Double is 2 bikes in one! It's a triple, and it's your custom tandem. This is the perfect bike for riding with the kids, sporting around town, or even light touring. The design is based on our Toucan ST design. As a tandem, it looks and rides just like our Toucan ST. Even though it's our least expensive triple, we still build this bike custom sized for each of you. This bike comes standard with one telescoping 'super-adjustable' seat post to provide a very wide range of rider height compatibilities. This is very convenient for growing kids. You can have 2 or all 3 seat posts done this way if you like for an additional charge.

If you want to ride it as a double, it's super easy to take out the center section. For transport, it just takes a few seconds to take the bike in half. Once your child has grown out of the bike, you'll still have a great tandem to ride for years to come!
