It seems that there have been many threads lately about using various electronic devices on a tandem: ipads for mapping, Bluetooth intercoms, best GPS, stoker computers, shared computer for captain and stoker, etc. Personally, I prefer not to have any electronic device on our tandem, in part because I have always admired the pure mechanical beauty of bicycles. Another reason is that my personality is such that if I had a cycle computer, I would be checking it constantly, and I would prefer to just focus on the ride and surroundings. Finally, it is just one more system that requires selection, maintenance, repair and replacement. Lately however, I have succumbed to mounting my heart rate monitor on the tandem as we train for the Seattle to Portland bike ride. Once the ride is over however, I donít plan to use it or any electronic device on the tandem ever again. I was just curious to know if there are many others who eschew the use of electronic devices.
