    Tandem Recumbent: where do I belong?

    Newbie posting here. I now have my dream bike, a Rans Screamer tandem. But I have a lot of questions. I'm having trouble finding other TR people. Our goal is self contained touring. Should I be asking you recumbent people my questions or the tandem people? Where will I feel the love?

    You're very welcome here (I'd also recommend Bent Riders Online which has a tandem section).

    I see no problem posting both here and in the tandem section. Both accepting groups.

    No problem posting here at all. Hopefully other TR riders will see this post and chime in.

    Hi Screamerman: Congrats on the new Rans Screamer. I have a disabled 18 year old son and all his movement and shifting on the back of our KHS tandem makes it difficult to control. We would love a Screamer but the cost seems prohibitive. Hopefully a used one will pop up one day for us. Did you end up with a new or used one? Any pics for us???!

    A tandem recumbent? Oh the horror!

    Wait, you mean something like this?



    That's my wife and I's Rans Seavo and it is a blast to ride. We had a few "challenges" building the bike and getting everything just right. Now that we're done though, it's a blast to ride.

    Wander over to my blog in my sig line, there are a few write ups about the Seavo...

    The Tandem subforum is in the Speciality Disussions folder of the Message Board. Quite a few Screamer owners on BROL.

    For 'self contained touring' you may be interested in an underseat rack (We don't have one): Rans Racks : TerraCycle, Exquisite Recumbent Parts & Accessories

    Plus a RANS rear rack, if there is not one already on your bike: REAR RACK ASSEMBLY (RECUMBENTS) (We use one.)
