As we have stated in previous posts, we originally spec'd D/A brifters on our Zona tandem. Rear worked just fine, front was problematic . . . fought front D/A der. for 3,000 miles. Stoker Kay finally said 'go back to barcons, they have always worked just great.'
Followed stoker's advice, went to D/A 9 speed barcons front and rear. We're happy (!) with over 12,000 miles on the barcon setup.
Hi-tech is not always the best; lo-tech works just fine for us!
Pedal on TWOgether!
