We have a dedicated course with no traffic and a road course with almost none.

Don't worry.
Your machine can be delivered to the College Park shop, and in many cases delivered to your home or office.

Follow up service is available at College Park and on all bikes and trikes bought from us, you're guaranteed rush service, most of the time same-day, no matter how busy, though we do suggest emailing or phoning ahead for a scheduled appointment.

 Hase Pino

The Pino is not just a unique bicycle, it is a machine that allows two people to participate in a great healthy outdoor activity and enjoy their surroundings while having their heads so close they san whisper if they want.

Unlike the 'conventional' tandems that have the stoker's head literally buried on the captain's back(side), the all-round view for both riders is a blessing. The rear rider steers the Pino and has all the control elements on the rear handlebar. The front rider can have the choice of pedaling or coasting - or the Pino can be set up so that there is no independent coasting.

The front seat can be used for cargo and support well over 100lb of goods. The tandem can serve as a 'taxi', and deliver passengers and come home as a solo.

We carry the standard cromoly version as well as the sporty super light weight titanium with special touring titanium seat.

Linda and Larry have taken theirs all over the world and toured in Arizona, down the Mississippi to New Orleans, across Germany, Majorca, and all over the Mid Atlantic. This summer the family will take one down the Danube twice - once with Larry and Linda and again with Larry and son David while they help with the Santana tandem rally
