Very excited about our first tandem purchase. Bought it used locally. Actually had a friend drive us to the place and then my girlfriend and I rode it back home the 12 miles (which I thought was pretty impressive considering neither of us have ever ridden a tandem before). We both really enjoyed the ride home and found it initally to be difficult but eased into it nicely and its almost easy now.

The bike has a drum brake but its controlled by the stoker. Could I get a brake lever that would control both the rear V brake and drum brake?
Also, the tires are currently semislick 1.5", should I get new tires that are slick and narrower? I don't plan to go off pavement anytime.
