Tandem bicycles have been around since before the turn of the last century. The great advantage of a tandem is that it allows riders of different skills and abilities to ride together, making this style a favorite for couples. Tandems are typically faster than single bikes due to double the power with the same frontal area.
Schwinn made tandems on their Paramount production line from 1969-1979. The Paramount name was reserved for top-of-the-line Schwinns. Today, this factory continues to make bicycles under the name Waterford Precision Cycles.
