reading the thread about tandem weight, one member mentioned 500 W and so forth [talking about climbing and such. i scanned but didn't read the whole thing].
my question: how IS power measure on these things? same as with singles? i have used a power tap the past couple years, so i'm familiar with their usages. i suppose it is just the same, no?
next question: what kind of power IS generated on these bikes? i'm accustomed to the numbers i produce, on easy rides, climbing, sprinting and all that. but what can i espect with a tandem? it can't be just a simple additive matter, can it?
if you are familiar with this, i'd love to know: will i regularly be seeing readings in excess of XXXX watts climbing?
