I don't have the photos to post to prove it, but my solo bike and the captain's cockpit are identical down to the mm. I know what is comfortable and that is what I want. That is my story and I am sticking to it!

Bars on my single are 3" lower than tandem.
Seat on single a fraction of an inch lower than our tandem.
I do ride a bit more aggressively on single than on tandem.
Both bikes are custom and fit me perfectly.

Won't have the pics until it's delivered, but our new Robusta is spec'd to give the exact same position as both of our single bikes.
