Tandem cranksets that shift perfect and don't drop the chain, with hollow axles are expensive and hard to find. Timing and driving chainwheels on the right side makes the choice much larger.
My choice was in the rear Shimano triple with 104 BCD diameter: XT, XTR but even deore works fine. Up front u can also choose narrow wide
Parts easy too find, 11 speed price ok and DI2 just works better then a tandem wit cable gears. Parts u find everywhere.
The BSA bottom brackets work fine and last long.
If u choose boost i think it will be even more complicated to find cranks and brackets for square axles. It gets also more and morE complicated to find qualIty parts for traditional tandem cranks.
For the moment a lot is simply not available or taKes at least 2 months delivery time.
