This is not about weight, as is apparent from posts in the what does your tandem weigh and Beyond welds topics! Those of you that ride CF Tandems, is there something different about the ride quality that you prefer over a steel or aluminum tandem? I know the canned answer that material doesn't matter, but no matter how many times you repeat that mantra doesn't make it 100% true. My daughter/stoker has convinced me that we need a new tandem for next season, it really didn't take much convincing. Now we are seriously looking at custom frame size as I think she would feel more comfortable just a little more stretched out. Trying to duplicate her single bike ride position in the drops without her head in my back.
We are looking at Calfee and Ruegamer among other material (non-CF) makers. I guess why I am asking is that when I made the switch from aluminum Klien's & Cannondales to my current CF single bikes (I own 3) I don't think I would ever switch back. I would like to know if tandem owners feel the same way. I would hope that Zona and TG will favor us with an answer (the only two off the top of my head that have ridden various tandems including CF ones).
Thanks in advance.
