I am planning on having a road tandem built for my 50th birthday - something I can ride with my wife, son (15) and 2 daughters (12 and 10). I am looking for suggestions on several topics. Please weigh in with your wisdom and I will post pictures in the Spring when it is ready. I plan to train for some distance cycling/racing with my son/daughters and cycle charity rides/light touring with my wife (she is an equestrian and has not been on a bicycle in years).
Brakes -disc or regular?
