    Personally I don't have JUST one tandem partner, in fact i ride my bike with many people some of them Male many of them Female, some of them super strong some of the weak, some Blind, some not exactlly to sharp...

    In fact I have 3 females that ride in the front of the bike as a captain (I wish the ibis was smaller and more woman can fit the really tall toptube)
    in my Opinion is Nothing better than being in the back seat when you have a dear and skillful friend in front of you, i think i love the fact of "Giving the control" to somebody you trust plus the ride is very enjoable since ussually the view of their beatyful neck & shoulders and hair moving in the wind is extremlly calming and nice..

    I do know about weight distribution since most ladys are lighter than guys, and yes is a little of a handcap but is not so bad if you compare the collateral benefits..

    so is anybody else here that ride,,female Front, Male back...??

    At the World Du championships a while back, I drafted behind a S African woman with a georgeous behind all the way back to the barn. A bad race but a wonderful view....

    I recently lost my pilot for a while and let it be known that I was looking for a co-rider down at the gym. I only had one offer and decided to give it a go, but as she was a competent cyclist, she insisted on the control seat. Never again. 2 hours of looking at 240lbs crammed into lycra was not a pretty sight.

    Unfortunately Stuart and I have a reputation to keep up, and the few females that we offer to let them ride on the Tandem will not take up the offer, some males do but only for one ride. 35mph down a rocky downhill offroad is enough for most riders to say never again.

    That's probably 2 of my wife. She did get to take the captain's seat once, when we busted the timing chain. She has no desire to do that again. On flat ground, I wouldn't mind the view, but it really is too much for her, as she's on the petite side.

    [edit] You don't have to be Latin to appreciate a good view.

    I guess a tandem would be a great thing to have for a single guy. I had to wait until I was married to get ours.

    And you can leave the tandem at home alone when you go out for the evening.
