Hello, I am from North Royalton, Ohio and we just purchased an awesome Da Vinci Joint Venture tandem. My husband hopes to make a biker out of me yet! I do own a 9.8 Trek and a cannondale hybrid that I like to do casual rides with friends. Are there any other DaVinci owners around? Soon the snow here will stop and we can try it out...Our first outing, my husband dropped me twice, once on each side..I am getting to old for skinned knees!
