    I was very surprised when the possibility of mixing components was reported. Electronic shifting should open up possibilities like using old 10 speed shifters with new 11 speed systems as well...

    There is a thread in this forum titled something like How Much Does Your Tandem Weigh or similar that mentions the repainted Trek below. I don't recall the specific weight but it was fairly light. ...

    In addition earlier you posted that you love your 56 x 11 top gear. You seem to a have a team strong enough to use that gearing. My guess is you are much stronger than most.

    True it is the ring count that limits the gears but the primary reason for giving up a triple is often to allow for the right side sync. It seems that the main reasons two rings get used on tandems...

    Well said. My inference was made from your statement that you use it and were unlikely to ditch it. I did not give due consideration to your stokers possible input into the matter.

    First the wording "is going to" and "there is a good chance" above makes it clear that they have not tried it and the statement is speculative. Understandably Shimano does not want to say it will...

    Custom tandem builders

    We are considering ordering a custom tandem with couplers and are looking for a custom builder. I have looked into Comotion, Santana, DaVinci, Calfee, Bilenky and Rodriguez. Any good recommendation...

    Bcarfree is a good example that the captain doesn't need wide bars or a lot of upper body strength to wrestle the tandem. Bike handling and calm stokers come in all sizes.
