    Nice vid. Tandem on the track is a good way to break some bones. I have enough of a handful riding one on the street. And, it is rather stressful on the bike itself, as you can see in this video:

    @chas58: how come the front wheel goes out first? i would assume the drivetrain or the rear wheel to take most of the stress?

    Because the front one had what appears to be a blowout and was running on the rim.
