    Its a gear that I would not give up, in the past we have gotten by with 28 X 25 on a eight speed cassette but now that...

    The cover is ok. Actually I am not sure it is wearing out, maybe just want to try and see if something else is better.
    It is still rideable with a slight amount of discomfort. Sometimes the padding...

    I guess I shouldn't make judgments about others tire selections.
    Use what works for you. I wouldn't be surprised that the Schwalbe One rides smoother than a GP4000S and would try them myself if I...

    We would love to take our tandem on Amtrack from San Diego to Santa Barbara or San Luis Obispo and bypass the L.A. traffic.
    But besides not being able to take the tandem on the train, it takes much...

    I could never understand the fascination with Schwalbe's lightweight tires, they have a long history of high failure rates compared to other brands of tires.

    Sounds like I should look for a shop with loaners. If I knew what saddle I needed (like the SLR on my single) I would buy it from the UK or on Ebay for a lot less.
    But I guess its worth paying...

    I have been using a Terry Zero Y saddle on the tandem forever but I think the one I have is wearing out and its time to move on.

    Our Calfee is an older generation.
    We have rim brakes and I never have felt a need for disc brakes with all their complications and weight and now the through axle thing.

    Thanks for the nice pics.
    Interesting how low the top tube is relative to head tube.
    Looks like you could easily mount a rack on that with existing mount points.

    Assuming it is in good shape probably about half of the new price.
    That is what I could get for my Santana when I sold it.

    I did notice that the nut is very close to the top of the spacer and was possibly bottoming out the top cap.
    From what I remember the stem came with epoxy to glue whatever holds the nut in.

    Problems with Chris King headset

    Couldn't get all the play out of it until I tightened the top cap nut very tight.
    It still turns freely, but it seems I shouldn't...

    Here is something I came up.
    We didn't do this exact route on our tour but have done portions of it at some time.
    There are a lot of variations to this that could be done.

    They have worked well on my single bike. I would be tempted to use them on the tandem being that we are fairly light weight but I think you right it might not be strong enough.

    Mount seems secure and easy to take on / off.
