We now have over 100 miles on the new Co-motion Speedster
First impressions on the bike---
the fit & finish is really nice.
The attention to detail was evident.
The ordering process was good and their patience in answering LOTS of questions was evident and appreciated.
I had it set up do we could use disk or drum down the road as we decide what we need.
First Impressions of the RIDE:
Its power transfer is very good.
It seems stiff enough so as now to be whippy but still maintains a decent ride feel. (my single bikes Titanium and Carbon-- so i have a good base to compare to)
It corners well though I am still learning how to do this it is not like a single (as you all know)
It is very stable at slow speeds (like creeping forward at a light)
First impressions of riding Tandem in general
We have both have lots of experience on singles and had borrowed a tandem several years back for a while
It takes a lot of communications --the ride is not your own
she really trusts me a lot
doing things systematically makes life easier
much more power on flats rolling downhill and small grades
bigger rises are very doable --just a tad slower
stop signs and intersections take on a whole new meaning and perception-- we have come to several tricky ones due to grade and or traffic and had now problems
Overall..... what a fun new toy .... worth the wait ......so much yet to learn
Looking forward to some group rides and rally's
