    n + 1 tandem

    Persuaded my stoker/wife to join me on the Dark Side - our new RANS Screamer tandem arrived Friday. Too bad our neighborhood streets are covered with ice/snow/cold. And more snow is coming this week. Is it almost Spring yet?

    Congrats on the new ride!! Looking foreward to the Maiden Voyage ride report.

    As for the arrival of Spring.......what is it they say about anticipation making the heart grow fonder, or some such jibberish?

    CONGRATS!!! That's the next step for us, we just bought our first recumbents, the "upgrade" will be a "R-Tandem", although it will take a couple of years of saving, ENJOY!!!
    Take care, RIDE SAFE, have FUN!

    Ooh, yellow's my favorite color, too. Good choice! The Screamer won't be quite as fast as a good upright tandem, but soooo much comfier for The Boss!

    January thaw? We're expecting 3-7" of white fluffy tomorrow. However, I'll maintain a positive attitude and say that, yes, we will get out on the new bike during the January thaw.
    In the meantime, lots of time to attend to adding bottle cages, computer, adjusting seats, bars, brakes, etc. etc.

    Surely the correct term for a Tandem should be n+2

    But need more pics before a full judgement can be made.

    We're only expecting 3-5" of snow tonight. The thaw generally comes closer to the end of January
