We're heading across to Switzerland for a touring holiday soon and are having last minute thoughts on getting a Bike Friday tandem largely for the ease of use of flying (assuming things are actually flying by then)
Does anyone have experience with the Bike Friday's? How do the small wheels compare to 26" wheels, is it just something you get used to? Are they slower bikes?
I've read that the smaller wheel bikes are a bit twitchier, is this also the case with the tandems? How are they fully loaded touring for two?
Any input would be appreciated, I will have to make the decision pretty quickly if I want to get the machine before we go. My other option is my original plan A. Pack up the existing tandem, put up with the inconvenience getting to and from the airport, and then tour on the tandem we know and have a great time
