I think though I'm not 100% sure he's still building tandems. He is
one of the most underrated builders and even sometimes I forget about
him until I see one of his bikes. If I was to ever get a custom
built tandem he'd be one of the first I'd call. I remember seeing a
72cm(?) single a few years back that had lateral bracing tubes from
the headtube to rear dropouts. The guy that owned it had had it for
years and had bought many other bikes but always came back to the
Lippy. Anyone on the list own one?
