I greet you from Italy , and excuse me for my English.
Last week i sold my old cannondale tandem ( 1991) and i have ordered a new cannondale road tandem.
In the old tandem there were canti brake on rim front and rear.On Alps i have had some problems in descent with front tire( 700x32) and in two occasions there was a disaster : too heat the front rim , front wheel bursted,hospital for me and my wife!
The new road tandem cannondale has Avid BB 7 disc brake.I know and use these brakes on my TRICE and i am very satisfied , no problems in mountains .
But i never used this sistem on a tandem ( in my region not so much flat ! ) and i want to ask you your experience or your advice .
I thank you in advance
