Odd places to see a tandem ...

or a picture of one.

I have seen a lot of tandems since getting ours. Maybe its just like cars, as soon as you buy one you notice everyone else has the same vehicle. But there are a few places that I saw tandems that I just didn't expect to. I have also seen some pretty odd tandems to. I would like to see pictures of what or where you've seen a tandem that maybe you did know what to think or expect.

I will start:

On top of a bakery cake:

Looking forward to see what we all come up with!

This thread had several TV ads featuring tandems...

Tandem Bike Commercial

Of course, there were also mysterious tandem bikes festooned with lights that cycled through the set on both Men in Black movies.

Rudy, the wedding couple are being sneaky, it's two unicycles not really a tandem.

A child's tandem:

Can this really be called a tandem?

Couch Biking in style and where we've been!

You just have ridden in style until you take the Couch for a spin! There are some cyclists that just donít see where they are going!

Another interresting variation on the website from Xanti Andia`s signature- only one set of bars or two bars on the same stem. Looks like they`re available both ways.

That is the Buddy Bike. I think it has popularity with special needs kids families. It is one handlebar although it looks like you could probably sneak in a second handlebar if desired.
