Not thinking about on-bike conversations here, but what we would like to know is how many command words you use.
Words like: Shift, coast, stop, hammer, feed me, etc.

And how often? We´re trying to achieve a certain level of telepathy. Will that be possible? Or are you captains calling every single action?

We've been tandeming for a long time (since 1976) and we aren't the hammering type, but we use next to none of that type of verbal communication.
