Well we finally upgraded from our Raleigh 26" to a Cannondale RT2! A big investment in AUD but one we are mostly happy with given the weight difference alone.
A couple of concerns:
1) The bike came with Truvativ Crankset and should have been Gossamer. We are still waiting for the replacement! Perhaps this relates to number 3 below???
2) We melted the fancy brake cable set up (linear) on the rear discs and had to have it replaced with standard cable after our first 4km downhill road run. We melted the outer on to the inner!
3) We can't seem to get the rear cassette settled. One click does not change but seems to leave the chain in limbo. It's very noisy. A second click seems to change it although uphill under pressure, after more than 5 full rotations, it skips again. No matter how many adjustments, it doesn't seem to be right.
Tandems are few and far between in Australia so we don't have many experts. We are very lucky to have our LBS helping us along with the expertise of a pro rider and Australian champion. However, we need some tandem specific knowledge.
Tandemgeek or Zona??? Any advice please.
