Here's a "better" photo of the "saddle." So it's like a square? How are you supposed to pedal? Maybe for $2,000 it propels itself.

I've seen many 'his and hers' bikes for sale but never identical tandems. His and hers and his and hers? Is it a gender-fluid foursome who buys these bikes? What are these bikes pronouns?
So many questions.

^ Make sure the Somec fork is original to that frame. All those spacers make me question it.
