    does anyone else "name their steed?"

    my partner and i call our burley duet tandem
    "houdini" and we make our regular great escapes.

    what is a bike without a name, but crafted metal.
    give your steed a personality.

    Yes our tandem has a name.... two names in fact namely :

    1. Tandem 4 ....means me and my wife the bank and the building society .......just joking !!!!!!!! it was the only email address I could find.

    2. Spirit of MAIA - A combination of the first letters of the two tandem pairs who are our inspiration and who taught us almaost all we know of tandem racing.

    Doc McGarry is this amayhaps a tandem thing to name our bikes!!!!!

    Keep those wheels spinning!!!!!

    There was a discussion about this not too long ago. Try doing a search.
