We've got a 1st gen digital Simultalk 24G. We saw a team with one at our first Georgia Tandem Rallye (2006). Saw another 2-3 over the next couple of years at various charity rides. We liked the idea of chatting without yelling. Sometimes at speed or in windy conditions, I was unable to hear map instructions and/or gear calls. So we bought a set from Precision Tandems. We elected to go the wireless route so that we could use them on our then-single bikes as well. We really like them, but generally reserve them for tandem rallyes and long club- or charity rides. Most of our local routes we just leave them at home. With a cordless, battery life & power line interference are the only drawbacks. In addition to what we have, a brand new system was showcased in the latest issue of RTR (#40). That one featured the Cardo BK-1 Duo.
Learn from other people's mistakes. You won't live long enough to make them all yourself.
