Funny Jump

Would anyone wanna see two kids ride a tandem off a tabletop? Just wondering if anyone else would find it comical.

Never seen it, But that would be a funny thing to see. I still think jumping a tandem would be better. I wanna bring one to a DH race on the 10th. Just to see the look on peoples faces.

I wouldn't actually use it, just lean on it trying to look cool.

It was awesome. Nose wheelies have a place in my heart for dumb tricks people do but look good ...on a tandem it was even more awesome to see the tandem sticking 45 degree off the ground on a steep hill in sanfran

My friend has a Cannondale tandem...

I'll see how much stress through jumping it can take!
