Our tandem: http://s211.photobucket.com/albums/b...t=IMG_0694.jpg
1994 Trek T50, which we are just starting to ride. My wife has balance issues, so never rode a solo bike. I commute 12 miles each way to work on a 1985 Schwinn World Tourist, with some upgrades.
This morning was our fourth time out on the tandem, heading east on Willow, red light at Meridan. Waiting for the light a 20 something in full gear pulls up on $1K+ road bike with drop bars, etc. He takes off, we accelerate slowly (500+ lbs team here), in about eight blocks, we blow by him Diane said he did not look happy at all The light at Lincoln was green, and we were pulling away. We slowed to take the bike trail south along 87, and he passed us, continuing east on Willow.
It is fun for an over 50 couple, just starting on the tandem to blow by a youngin' on a fancy road bike.
