Mid-90s Santana Cilantro

  • Size: Medium

This bike has been tuned up and is ready to ride! Santana is known for their excellent tandems, and this is a great example of their Cilantro model. It has seen some modifications, most notably the swap to drop bars and an addition of a disc drag brake on the rear for long descents. The frame was powder coated after Ti-Cycles welded on the disc brake mount. The 3×9 Shimano drivetrain uses high-end components that offer a huge range of gears. Included are two pairs of hand-built wheelsets with tires, cassette, and a rotor for both. The rear rider has dummy shifter hoods for a comfortable hand position, and a shock absorbing seatpost, both from Cane Creek. The frame has mounts for fenders and can accommodate mountain bike tires.

Per Santana:

Over the years, Santana’s Cilantro has achieved legendary status among hard-core off-roaders for its incredible strength, nimble handling, winning performance and rugged reliability—proven again and again under the most demanding conditions imaginable.
