Day ride, long tour, ride into town, child transporter, weekly shop, trip to the tip or moving domestic paraphelia, the Morpheus, true to its name, changes form to suit its function.
One of the great joys of cycling is riding out with family and friends, about sharing experience. Tandems can facilitate this by allowing people of different strengths to ride together, both riders putting as much, or as little, effort into the pedals as they prefer.
The single drawback of this is that the rear rider can usually only see the front rider's back when they look forward. The Morpheus addresses this, with both riders able to look ahead at the same view. It also puts the two riders' heads closer together so conversation becomes relaxed and natural.
To further facilitate the ease of use, the Morpheus uses an independent pedalling system that allows the front rider to choose when or even whether they want to pedal. Such a system works well for couples, but is especially useful for riding with children or for special needs applications.
The recumbent front seat is also particularly comfortable. No more saddle or shoulder soreness and with a simple and extensive range of adjustment, it is easy to optimize comfort and swap riders around.
As well as enabling people to ride together comfortably, the Morpheus is an excellent load carrier and utility bike. In its base configuration it will take a conventional rear rack and and a large underseat rack that will also accept a set of large panniers. Kitted out like this, the Morpheus is ideal for a long, leisurely tour. But that is not all, removing the front seat and installing the Titan 2 platform rack transforms the Morpheus from a tandem into an heavy duty load carrier.
