A Beautiful Beast: Bruno the Legor Cycli MTB Touring Tandem

Without going into the psychology of tandem riding again here on the site, let’s just dive right into this super sick Legor Cicli MTB touring tandem named Bruno. Mattia from Legor Cicli made Bruno similarly to his 27.5 or 700c road bike called LWTUA, or love will tear us apart. You can fit a 27.5 x 2.4″ tire for off-road riding, or a 700c x 45mm tire for road. The gearing is also interchangeable with 1×11 or 2×11, depending on the riding. Mattia used T47 bottom brackets and a custom eccentric shell. Oh and it’s Di2 for a very practical reason; packing and shipping the bike for international travel. Mattia and his wife Franka from MAAD Cycling toured on this bike prior to the Eroica Nova, where Kyle and Liz raced the bike.

The front hub is SON, with a Supernova light, and two Plugs for double the charging fun. The wheels were built by Frasen Wheelworks on ENVE M635 hoops and an R45 rear hub. That sweet rack is made by Legor Cicli and the tubing for the frame is a mix of Columbus Spirit and Variwall, while the stays are custom Columbus 22.2, bent by Mattia.

Bruno is a beast but is one solid ride!
