Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I don't remember who mentioned low spoke count wheels but our tandem has 20F and 24R.

Raise your hands if you've done a bicycle activity wearing a suit.

Boo hoo, but it's nice being able look up and not having the natural discs above and below destroyed by fusions.

BITD tandems had 36F40R. Likely overbuilt.

I recall my first "real" road bike had 32H F/R which I thought was hot stuff compared to the default 36H.

Our first 4 tandems had 48R and 40F. My early ‘80s TT wheels were 28, racing were 32 and training were 36, all tubular, Cotton for training and silk for racing.

We did stage race our tandem a couple times and used 36 road wheels. They only made it through about 5 races each and when they broke, they broke 3-4 spokes at a time. Luckily, we never crashed but a wheel did collapse just past the line of a TT once.
