    Hott Link

    We drove over late Friday night and purchased a Hott Link from House of Tandems to try on our Saturday ride. I had read the past threads on tandem com and other communication devices. For $129 I figured what the heck. We put it on in a rush Saturday morning and adjusted the volume. We talked a little as we pedaled to the start and that is where I noticed everything.

    I told my wife/stoker I felt like Mel Gibson in the movie where he could hear what every woman was thinking about him only I could hear every conversation around me with extreme clarity. We could communicate to each other with just a whisper though. Once on the ride I heard a loud scraping sound. I looked to my left and it was a man raking his rock driveway about 40 yards away. Riders approaching from behind were easy to notice/hear and my stoker really liked it. I did notice some wind noise at times but very little.

    I think this is really going to enhance our tandem riding experience.
