    Since we just got a pretty nice tandem, it's not in the near future, but she rather liked it. This way you can ride together while arguing which one is better

    There's always the Switchbike.
    "When man first set woman on two wheels with a pair of pedals, did he know, I wonder, that he had rent the veil of the harem in twain? A woman on a bicycle has all the world before her where to choose; she can go where she will, no man hindering." The Typewriter Girl, 1899.

    That's the first reasonable argument in favor of that style tandem that I have seen.

    I think DF and Bent riders can get along. Ride what you want...just ride.
    Please support diabetics like myself, a red rider, by supporting the American Diabetes Association.
    If you see a Tour de Cure event, consider participating or supporting a Red Rider or other participant.

    Wow, a bent rider who can keep up with a DF rider on the climbs, and a DF rider who can keep up with a bent on the downgrades. Who'da think it?

    There are lighter and better recumbent tandems than the one pictures.
    Here a forum:

    I bought a trike. Have balance issues during the allergy season sometimes. Discovered that I like it a lot. Trikes are great on steep climbs and a blast on fast twisty downhills.
    Pivot 5.7
    Rawland Drakkar 650B love it with 38mm Soma tires
    2009 Specialized Roubaix Ultegra
    Santana Fusion Tandem
    2010 Specialized TriCross
    Challenge Concept Trike
    One knee scoped so far.
