Hello all. My wife asked if we could get a tandem and I really dont know the answer to this and need to do more asking. So.... here I go:
1- Why choose tandem over single person bike? I am thinking that it will keep us closer together since she is not as fast yet nor likes long distances and I like both. Thoughts?
2- Is there any drawbacks to tandems?
3- What does one look for in tandems?
4- Does the person in the back get board since they do not shift or stear? I assume its a single speed in the back?
5- Anything to look out for when riding tandem versus single person bikes?
Any other advice/thoughts/concerns welcome.
