    My wife wife admits to being a control freak, but her highly competitive side won over her control freak side when she saw what is was like on the tandem. Now her single gathers dust.

    Nice looking bike. I also find it interesting to see the Calfee shop in the background. Does anyone have an idea of the number of tandem frames built by Calfee in a year?

    That size seat post has been used on many tandems and posts are available but not common. Many captains buy a shim to use a seat post size down to 27.2. This allows a wide variety of seat posts...

    DC Rainmaker compares lots of power meters and does it by using multiple power meters at the same time, on the same bike on the same rides. He points out that there will always be differences. ...

    I assume you meant to write 100 psi max pressure with a 28mm wide tire and 50 psi with a 1.9in (48mm) tire.

    Good info and illustrates wider tires pressure on rim walls.

    What pressure do you...

    The last I checked, they do make them for Santana's 73mm BB shell. This shell width is an old mountain bike standard.

    Nice!

    I understand about the 11 speed option and that is a good reason to eliminate a hub.

    I know some like the 135mm rear hub for tandems now and I have considered that option. It seems to me that many...

    I am also going to be building a 145 rear hub. I am thinking about the Chris king. Hub. Why did you select the MI6 over the Chris king?

    MI6 has a center flange lengths of 30 left and 23.5 right....

    Interestingly I was told that after lots and lots of Brevets preparing on the tandem it came down to a cadence issue at a very tough PBP. I think they bravely finished a little over the time limit...

    I may know that couple. Was that a team that finished the very rainy 2007 PBP just outside the time limit but never rode the tandem together again?

    The need for exact torquing and slippage is one reason I am not a big fan of carbon tubes that need to be clamped like on seatposts and handle bars. I did recently buy some carbon bars for the...

    I assume a custom frame up charge is not in the picture. I think that both Calfee and Comotion use 73 degree stoker seat tubes so the stoker geometry should be the same.

    If you don't mind wearing parts out faster then smaller chain rings give wide gearing even with a fairly close spaced cassette. Our front rings...

    I view the 2 x 11 vs 3 x 10 debate as boiling down to what you want out of your gearing. For example:

    2 x 10 = less overlapping gears between rings. Less wasted duplicate gears, less weight and...

    Keeping the current crank would be another way to save money if that is part of the goal. By using the inner two rings of the triple crank the big ring will be less cross chained since the new big...
