Tandem Cycling - I had a terrible nightmare!
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I had a dream that my sister and her boyfriend decided to do me a favor by adding couplers to our tandem. They snuck out our tandem and took it to some rinky dink bike shop. Somehow I found out and freaked. By the time I had arrived, they had already sawed our beautiful frame in 2 or 3 pieces. I was extremely disturbed and when I saw the couplers, they looked like a bulky metal switch that you could flip on and off if you bumped it. I knew it wouldn't work and that our beautiful bike had been destroyed! What a crazy dream!

Don't lose any sleep over it!:rolleyes:
S&S couplers are quite the shiz. Our tandem has them and they work fine. They have never come loose unless I use the spanner on them.
The couplers also make the tandem easier to transport if you want to tandem "out-of-area", or ship it somewhere.

That is terrible!
I had one where we were almost run over by a farm implement;
It was a harrowing experience
Look at the bright side. In your dream, they could have been lead couplers plus a disinterested Clydesdale stoker.

I thought that it is the pilots that are like that- Not the Clydesdale bit but Pilot has had family commitments for too long now.
