Look what you made me do

I have been a lurker on the tandem board since stopping in at Richardson`s Bike Mart in Dallas TX.
I have only been back on a bike since Sept after a 40yr hiatus. I managed to get the wife interested in biking, and got her a Trek 7300 that she rides locally 3 to 4 times a week, 5mi at a time.
This is my Christmas present to us. I intend to break us in slowly with short rides.

Now you've gone and done it! Your life will never be the same again. I hope that it works out as well for you as it did for us.

Nice bike and congratulations! We enjoyed our first tandem ride so much that we "broke in slowly" with a 45 mile ride. I hope you two enjoy it as much as we do. Oh, and prepare to hear "she ain't pedaling!!" every time you pass a pedestrian. It gets old but we just smile like it's the first time we heard it.

Unfortunately its just a computer, it has RSX shifters and I don`t think they are flight deck compatable.
