That way it's a tad harder to hop onto that @130 mm but the stoker is very happy with all this travel!

    We juiced our bike up a little bit (well, you can leave the little out ..... :-) ) mainly to tickle our own fancy. So with Hope V4 brakes (instead of Magura MT2), Hope ProII/Arch EX wheels (instead of MSC Freeride wheels) and a Fox 36 Talas fork (instead of RS Domain) this bike did not get lighter but even better. We also replaced the independent freewheeling 170/170 crankset (yuk!) with a Middleburn 175/170 set. To top this set off, it has integrated spiders/sprockets on the timing chain. Nice!



    Very Nice! Not sure if that brand is available in the USA. Ride the wheels off it.

    Yes, we're happy!

    It's been a while since we've had a good photo of us on a tandem, so going with the "Pictures of Happy Tandem Couples" theme... we're looking pretty happy and almost at the top!!

    Thanks! Yes - Ventoux. It was perfect day. We were there two days after the Tour rode it this year.

    Made or 2013 Goal

    We've had a tough year with my wife (Stoker) in the hospital in the spring and then me spend the better part of a week in the hospital and surgery this fall. But with the breaks aside we met our goal of 1,200 miles last weekend. This is us just home with 1,203 miles, a little damp but feeling good! Now to see what we can do in December.

    Riding with the Blind Stokers Club in San Diego, July 2013.
    That's me on the front.
    The bike belongs to my stoker.

    Good for you. I capt for a blind stoker here in OH as well. It's just a wonderful way to share a ride.

    If anybody else is at all curious, have a look at bicyclingblind.org -- a way to connect capt's with stokers. From my own personal perspective, I'd sure recommend it.

    Good for you.

    What kind of tag along is that? Never seen that one before. Looks pretty cool.

    Its a Weehoo they now make an alloy version as the steel version is quite heavy. they work really well for small children that no longer want to ride in a trailer and are not quite ready for a trail-a- bike.

    For 2013, we added a mtb tandem to the stable! It's been very useful around here, with so many off-road trails and mtb clubs, but we are still roadies at heart.

    Here are some pics from our November vacation. We live in Wyoming, and took a trip to Texas to visit family. Couldn't resist taking the tandem since we're battling weather up north! Was a beautiful time with my sweetheart of 29 years!

    Also Guthrie. Thought you would all like to see one of these signs. I have never seen one in Wyoming! Drivers were all good in all three states we rode in. We wanted to ride in Nebraska also, but the weather turned a bit chilly on the way home!

    If you look closely at the original you can see that when I retreived the bike from the car just before the race and mounted the front wheel I inexcusably neglected to re-engage the front brake caliper. Since this was a hill climb, I did not use and detect that the front brake wasn't working.



    While descending, the carbon arm on our TRP Spyre rear disc cracked.



    And thus at this point, at 18 mph, I found that the rear brake wasn't working, and then neither was the front!



    Making like Fred Flinstone, I managed to slow us down by dragging my cleats on the ground, and eventually come to a near stop, so that we leaned into the grassy hillside beside us around that curve, and everything came out all right. Mrs Ritter was shaken by this experience, but was soon intent on getting back to the car so she could keep her lunch date our son. We have also had discussions about her anxious habit of clipping out unnecessarily.

    The next day was Mrs. Ritter's birthday, which she was grateful to see. For her card, I commemorated our experience:

    That's a scary story for sure. Might I suggest ABCQuickas your checklist? Air, brakes, chain, quick releases.

    2008 Trek Project One T2000 we picked up "used", though it seems it never was. Fun bike!

    I don't have any new pictures, just some back in the late 90's when we did have time to ride together. This was our year old 1996 Santana Sovereign. My stoker was a non cyclist a few months prior, yes we went through much training for her to understand how hard you should push down on the pedals :-). tandem ralley.jpg

    Hey crew... we've covered 17,000km over a year on our tandem, between Turkey and Vietnam. Still 10,00km left until home... but still happy!

    Our website is CyclingAbout.com

    We've got a whole section dedicated to tandems: Tandem Trials and Tribulations
    Also, we're doing a video series of our ride, here's the latest on Cambodia: Alleykat Roams Cambodia (EP.10)

    Here's the only pic we have of us actually riding. All our photos are selfies (arms ain't quite long enough!) We were riding and a friend saw us in time to snap this shot. We love to ride, and spring sure is in the air!
