I'm new here, so take this observation for what that makes it worth. I notice that a thread on this forum will get a hundred viewers for every poster. Man, if that were true on some of the racing forums I post on there'd be nothing at all. Come on folks, we need your baseless opinions and ranting tirades. Help me out here... what would be the tandem equivalent of the classic Campy vs. Shimano rants on Velonews??? How about "steel is real." Jump on in, there's enough alligators for all. Who rides tubulars on their tandem? Let us know how smelly our clinchers are!!!! Or, better still, what glue do you use? 3M!!!!!!
