I am almost new to the Tandem world since i have not got my ride yet. I am from San Antonio, Texas, and have been riding a single (consistenly) for about a year and a half now. I decided to rent a tandem a couple a weeks ago to see if my wife would enjoy biking as much as i do. To my total surprise she absolutely loved it and rode 22 miles with me. She has only riden her bike three time in the last year or so for a grand total of about 10 miles. So, you can understand my surprise when she rode 22 miles in what i can say was a perfect day. She liked it so much we went and order an 08 C'dale tandem. It should be here around December 15. I found a lot of useful articles and great advice on this forum, so Thank you very much. I believe i (we) will be regulars on this site.
