Hi, everyone, first time poster here.
My husband and I have been occasionally riding an old Cannondale tandem for a few years now
and are now interested in purchasing something a little nicer.
I am very interested in Davinci's ICS system, because it sounds like it might help solve the
problem of strength differences between two riders.
We're going to be trying out a few tandems tomorrow morning at a bicycle shop in Elk Grove
Village, Ill ( many thanks to senior poster, Duppie for the referral).
My question has to do with an email comment I was given by another bike store here in Wisconsin regarding
DaVinci's ICS system:
"As far as the Da Vinci ICS, not many tandem makers use it because it makes the tandem a lot more unwieldy. First off, it's a much more complex system to keep tuned up. It also hurts the handling if the two riders aren't pedaling in sync (balance can be thrown off and it's much easier to scrape a pedal on the ground)."
Has anyone with this type of coasting system experienced any of these problems?
Many thanks in advance,
