My girlfriend and I just took delivery of our Santana tandem last weekend and Iím glad to say that we love it! These contraptions are just the most fun thing that you can do in the daylight. Granted, our first ride wasn't glamorous (we were all over the place, and pretty wobbly while trying to clip in) but we both know we are going to love riding this bike for thousands of miles over the next few years.
Our second and third rides were much more stable as we both learned how to ride together (we now feel totally comfortable on our rig with only about 100 miles under our belts). Overall I am surprised how fast we got used to riding our bike, I thought the learning curve would keep us looking like freds for at least 2 months (I say this with the implicit assumption that we donít not look like freds now.... just go with it ok?). But I digressÖÖ I just wanted to say hi to all the other tandem-ers here and to post a few pictures of our first ride.
