Who leads (stoker or Captain) when pedalling in-phase
A question when pedalling in-phase.
When i set up my Tandem "in-phase" I had it exact - but have subsequently been told that the correct set up is to adjust the crank phasing by a few degrees so that the stoker leads the captain through the stroke (i.e. the stoker goes through TDC just before the captain).
I'd like to know whether this is the case and not the reverse (i.e. the Captain goes through TDC before the stoker?).
(By the way - i did as told and set it up this way and have just done a pretty brutal climb from Bellagio to Madonna del Ghisallo - but intrigued as to why its good?)
