Two new Periscopes hit the road
Some of you may have seen a thread I posted last fall (http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...or-family-of-4
) discussing the the pros and cons of two tandems vs a triple and single for me, my wife and 4 year old twins. Well, we pulled the trigger today at Mel's place down in South Jersey and, from the title of the post, you can see what we decided. Two new Periscope tandems for me and my wife.
She test rode one alone and with a girl on back and decided that she was comfortable and excited about captaining one half of our dynamic duo. Pull the rear mast out of the seat tube, drop the seat post all the way down to the bottom, put on crank shorteners, and our girls just fit on the back. Yaayyy, no stokid kit!.
Mel is building up the bikes this week and we'll swing down next weekend for the pick up. I'm happy that my wife agreed to captain one, but at the same time a little worried that when I want to go out without her that I'll have to trade off girls on the back rather than bringing them both with me. A convertible triple just wasn't in the cards this time. Good times ahead!
