I am thinking of going with a single ring up front and I am wondering how to size the chain guard on the outside of the crank. If you run a 38 tooth chain ring, do you use a 38 tooth...

Why smaller for cross?

Hello to all -

I have seen several posts that mention sizing a cross frame 1-2 cm smaller than a road frame. Why is this? When you decrease the seat tube length, you also decrease the top tube...

Kathy,

It is good that you are asking all of these questions. Sooner or later, you will get things sorted out. While it is a pain, I think all reasonably serious tandem teams go through this...

I beleive that there are many riders that think that a sore rear end comes from hitting a few bumps along the way when the real culprit is an ill-fitting seat. It's the hours of sitting (with 100+...

Kathy,

My wife and I have a Co-Motion and have the same problem. If you can work a deal with Co-Motion on a custom frame as Mark noted, then you should be in good shape.

No, the 10 speed Campy package will have to go to another couple. The upgrade from Speedster to Supremo was enough to dent the wallet for some time to come. I think Co-Motion wants another $600.00...

Number of Spokes

I see that CoMotion offers wheelsets in 36, 42 and 48 (I believe) spokes. Is there a standard number that splits the difference between weight and strength? Will you constantly be breaking spokes...

It's not really the seat tube that I'm worried about. I think that the CoMotion large (23" Captain/20" Stocker) is about right. I have a 35" inseam and my wife has a 33" inseam, so I thnk that the...
