Reverse Tandem

Hey guys, here's a picture of me (guy facing backwards) and my mate (guy facing forwards) riding our reverse tandem a while ago. What do you think of her?

Looks like the frame could be a bit whippy?!
The Brits have built a back-to-back production tandem that was at Interbike about 4 years ago.

A tandem with a rearward facing stoker with parallel cranks that aren't connected to the drive train.... What's the point, aside from creating a machine where the stoker truly isn't pedalling?

we got most of our inspiration from a few of those pictures

it was awesome fun to ride. before that we built a normal tandem where we both faced forwards, it was much faster than this.

i had the lazy seat, and it was hard to ride cause i had to try and mount at the same time as the front guy it was really messy
