The Fisher tandem project got its new front wheel and fork. Velocity Cliffhanger 32hole rim with paul word hub and wire/soldered spokes. The fork is a surly instigator fork. I tried a 29er wheel up front but am afraid it rides a little too high. Headset is a big cane creek dirt jumping model mounted in some 1-1/4 to 1-1/8 headset reducers. The avid mechanical disc break is tandem rated but I'm sure it's going to take a while to break in the pads and rotor for sufficient stopping. The rear wheel is going to be an eno eccentric hub also mated to the velocity rim. I've got to research which tires I can use....I should have enough clearance for any large high-volume tire.

Various used parts coming together for the John Cherry/Tom Teesdale 69er.
