Description Fun2Go side by side bike
The Fun2Go is a double rider cycle/ three-wheel tandem where the users sit beside each other. One person steers, both can pedal. The two persons have a good view and can communicate well with each other due to the seats being next to each other. The riders can get on without having to step through and the seats can easily be adjusted to the required distance with a lever. The seats can also optionally rotate, making it even easier to get on. The maneuverability of the Fun2Go side-by-side tandem bike is enormous, with two wheels all the way behind and one front wheel, it can turn around its own axis.
Van Raam has been producing the duo bike for more than 20 years and has already made several thousands of Fun2Go's. Because of this, the bike has been fully optimized through the years.
On the Fun2Go, the driver and passenger cycle in the same gear with a shared 8-speed hub. It is optionally possible to choose a double 8-speed hub, allowing the driver and passenger to choose their own gear independently.
With the optional shift hub, the main driver can set the way the co-driver cycles along. This drive option is especially for side-by-side tandem bikes used for therapy. With the co-pedal mode, you can motivate people to move more, or you can turn off the drive completely in case you don't want the user to cycle. The shift hub has three modes:
Mode A: With the 8-speed hub, the passenger and the driver pedal in the same gear.
Off mode: With the freewheel hub, the passenger can pedal independently of the driver or keep their feet still on the pedals. The passenger has complete freewheel, so they do not contribute to the drive of the bike.
Mode B: The passenger has a fixed gear in which they pedal. This is called the co-pedal mode.
Note: The shift hub can only be operated when the tandem bike is stationary.
An electric motor/pedal assistance is an option that makes cycling on this modern-designed side-by-side tandem bike even more "funtogo". For safety reasons, the Fun2Go is limited to a maximum speed of 20 km per hour. More information about this option can be found under electric pedal assistance.
If you choose the optional electric pedal assistance, it will be delivered as a smart e-bike with a Silent smart display. On this display, you can find a lot of information about the battery and the bike. The Silent electrical system from Van Raam is equipped with a start-up aid, which provides additional support when starting to ride. Read more about the Silent smart display in the article 'Instructions Silent smart display for Van Raam bicycles'.
In addition, there are many other options that can make the Fun2Go complete. You can fully customize the Fun2Go to your preferences by adding extra options. With a universal adapter on the back of the bike, you can add many handy options to take a foldable rollator, wheelchair or extra luggage with you. It is also possible to equip the side-by-side tandem bike with mountain gears, making it easy to cycle up a hill or mountain. You can find all options in our configurator or on the price list.
The Fun2Go is optionally available with a reinforced frame. A single seat of the Fun2Go is suitable for individuals weighing up to 180 kg. When two people are seated on the Fun2Go, the bike can carry a total weight of up to 280 kg (distributed across the 2 seats).
Van Raam Tandems
Van Raam also has a FunTrain tandem bike trailer which, in combination with the Fun2Go, allows three passengers and a companion to cycle safely. Van Raam also has tandems where you sit behind each other. See these tandems on the overview page.
The Fun2Go 2 is (for now) only delivered within the EU, including the United Kingdom and Switzerland. Countries outside the EU receive the Fun2Go 1. Read more about the previous version of the Fun2Go in the article ‘The Fun2Go 1 side by side bicycle’.
