My wife and I are new to tandeming (and to the forum). I've ridden extensively over the past 15 years, but never on a tandem. I'm looking forward to learning from those that have gone before.
I was reading with interest the thread "Why are we having so many maintenance issues?" and became particularly interested when the discussion got onto wheels, and whether some were safe on tandems. We have a KHS Tandmania Alite which we've done around 1000km on without issue at the moment.
From the specs on the website it looks like it's fitted with:
Rims: Weinmann ZAC-19 Double wall w/eyelets
Rear Hub: Shimano Tandem 145mm, Double Threaded/QR
Spokes 14G Stainless 40°
They are 26" wheels
Is this fine? If not, will I just start having issues with spokes and truing, or unsafe.
At the beginning, I'm happy to be a little paranoid. Thanks in anticipation. I'm looking forward to be an active listener, questioner and hopefully in time, a contributor.
