Wound up--awesome fork, just not my cup o' tea aesthetically.
I literally just got off the phone with Edge Composites and they told me the 2.0 has been increasingly used for tandems since it's the strongest one they make and has no weight limit. They also mentioned they're working with Co-Motion on a tandem-specific fork (which might just be a rebranded 2.0--that's my conclusion, not their words).
If I can get an Edge 2.0 to work, that'd be the bees knees.
For what it's worth, I just spoke with Edge. Their 2.0 is said to test stronger than the X2, and within my total weight area, I'll be fine using the 2.0 for tandem use. I'll be going with this fork for my upcoming build.
