    July 7, 2015 (40,691)

    It was a thin month for tandem riding and writing as life events interceded and consumed our attention as well as several weekends. However, we had a couple guest...

    May 7, 2015 (39,533)

    Kind of a slow spring for tandem cycling and I've just not gotten into spending time on the stationary bike this year: GTR could break me!! Oh well, that what doesn't kill us...

    I ride a '98 Calfee Tetra Pro as my primary solo bike; simply sublime is how I'd describe the ride. It has an Alpha Q fork and rolls on 32h Mavic Open Pros with Vredestein Fortezza 23's at 125 psi. ...

    Rule #1 of used tandem sales: If the asking price for a tandem seems a bit too reasonable for the age, features, or condition be suspicious.

    Really sorry to hear of your possible financial loss on a scam. Tandems do seem to be a draw for scammers and I'll be darned if I know why: perhaps we have a reputation for being just a bit too...

    My bad; me and numbers. The Erickson had a 48mm AME Alpha Q X2. The Calfee was built after True Temper acquired AME and discontinued the 48mm Alpha Q X2, so the Calfee was built around the 374mm...

    FWIW, my experience with Santana vs Erickson, Calfee and Co-Motion -- noting the Calfee & Co-Motion tandems have steering geometry more like the Erickson than Santana -- are nearly the opposite. ...

    Just received the new X-series saddle that I bought as part of the jump starter project; seemed like a good deal and will allow me to fit two new saddles to the Calfee and Triplet for Miss Debbie,...

    Two things to consider:

    1. The wheelbase isn't really a consideration, but steering trail can be. Santana's have short trail which requires steering inputs to deal with the camber, more so than...

    Yes, those are the highlights. Most of what I wrote about was our weekend trip up to the North American...

    Each Alpha Q product was a bit different, both in design and dimensions, hence the GS10, GS20, GS30, etc... and came with their own maximum load rating, usually much lower than the X2's, e.g., 225...

    We're definitely missing those mild winters from about 10 years ago; cold & wet weekends have been the norm. Hence, it was another month where only one of the seven new...

    We all have our biases; my preference for tandem as well as bicycle frames that are made here in the US is hardly something I've been bashful about. Bear in mind, I've spent 30 years in the US...

    Pretty much unnecessary, but go for it. If the rotor isn't rubbing on the fork or stay, then it's not too close. We've taken our rear rotor to brake fade many times and the stay is unblemished. No,...
