advice wanted - new touring tandem build
We are planning to sell our 12 year old co-motion co-pilot, and replace it with a slightly smaller bike (I need to re-size as I get older). We will use this bike for overseas touring, so couplers are required. It has always been a tricky to pack our bike, as the lateral tube and the centre of the wheel coincide in the case. The open frame design on some of the newer bikes seems much better for packing. We are going to get a bike that will accommodate wider, high volume tires. We are not interested in a 26 inch wheel tandem, after a bad experience with the one we had for a few years. The 650B wheel size is starting to appear on more bikes. I am interested in hearing from anyone who has experience riding 650B tandems, and which builders I should contact to discuss.
