Right now as the stoker I stayed clicked in at stop signs/lights. Is there any advantage to unclipping with the captain. We haven't tried having me clip out yet, I'm afraid when we start out I will throw us off balance trying to get back on the saddle and both of us clipping back in at about the same time. I'm 5'3 and my husband is 6'. Usually on my single I would stop pedaling at the bottom of the stroke to get clipped in, but that's pretty much impossible on the tandem, at least we don't do it now when we first start out. I guess the only thing we can do is find a quiet street and have me try it. It sure would help as a butt break. Right now I feel a little guilty having to tell my husband that I need to stop so often to get off the saddle, but he doesn't seem to mind.
