    I hope I don't get ostracized fo this, but do they race tandems on the track? I've never seen that.

    edit: Hot damn, that is a mighty fine bike.

    Not a competitive event.

    Until a few months ago I had a genuine Pogliaghi track tandem w/ full record parts hanging in the shop on loan from a local collector. ****ing gorgeous. Back in the heyday of track racing tandem events were rather common.

    Regarding comments about fixie tricks: people don't really skid or trackstand on the track these days, the point is generally to go very fast in a circle, which is significantly more fun that it sounds.

    Every year Trexlertown hosts "Tandemonium." It's not quite as tandem-filled as it sounds, but it's still amazing and fun to watch. Last summer a pair of guys wiped out pretty bad. I don't think either were seriously hurt, but tandem crashes evidently look really awkward and painful.

    And yeah, that bike is entirely cool. I'm wondering the same thing about the Zipps being able to support the extra weight...
