I wouldn't captain a tandem any other way and it works very well. Perhaps some of the new-age metro-types could do a little learning instead of blindly following the dogma....

As for crank length, longer cranks require faster foot speed compared to a shorter cranks for a given rpm and that does help the cadence mis-match. Crank length calculations that resolve optimum crank length using only the rider's physical parameters are silly.
Get over yourself, you're derailing a legitimate discussion with your completely bizarre argument that how a person rides a tandem somehow equates to chivalry.
