Clydes/Athenas with Tandems, Post Em Up!

Had our Burley Duet since 1997 (pretty sure). Fun to ride, fast on flats and too fat on downhills. Hit 56 once, too fast for my nerves with the wife on the back!

But fun to ride! 4 centuries on it as well.

If you notice, whenever we are climbing a 4% grade and over, I'm sweating and she looks like she's still having fun!

Lovely looking bike, but I know my wife would just sit back there taking pictures and I'd do all the pedaling....

Looks really cool! My wife has said many times she's not interested in tandem riding. Maybe if I agreed to be stoker?
