We used Stan's Alpha 400 road tubeless rims and Maxxis Padrone tires. We found we could run lower pressures and we ran them below the max psi of 125 psi of the tires. I would not over inflate...

Congratulations on your new Land Shark! It looks great. We probably should have let John go crazy on our paint and probably will if we get our frame repainted. The write up seems accurate from our...

It's a set of Lightning Tandem cranks. Lightning Carbon Cranks (http://www.lightningbikes.com/cranks/) They work well but are very expensive. We had some creaking but then I've been using a...

That's some serious tire clearance. I wonder how large of a tire will fit on this frame. If I were looking to build a gravel road tandem I'd be getting pretty excited about now. The Crusher in the...

Sunshine Hill Climb was a great event. The spectators and other riders were very supportive the whole way up. We beat a handful of singles up so we weren't the last up the hill, though we were the...

Yeah, jagwire is what I use too. The hose and kit have been on our mtb tandem for a couple of years with zero issues. I'm getting ready to change over to XTR brakes and will use the Jagwire kit...

If I were in the U.K. I'd give Middleburn a call and see what they can do for you. Their website is a bit confusing and I've not been certain of a 2X with crossover is available or not.

That is much better than my Co-Motion Supremo Co-pilot weighed packed. With gear in the S&S cases I had to measure and spread the gear to keep the boxes under the 50 lb each weight limit for free...

The B limit adjustment screw was not able to get the Dura Ace Di2 rear derailleur to fit the 32 on my frame. A redesigned derailleur hanger would allow the use, but not mine as is. I spent some...

Yeah, our bike was out in the hail on the way to the Iron Horse on top of the car. Poor bike took a beating but the Di2 still worked when we got there. Our car (TDI) gets twice the mileage of...

We've been using 11-speed Dura Ace Di2 and have changed over to the 11-sp Ultegra mid cage Di2 RD with the 11x32 11-sp Ultegra cassette. It works fantastic with our 52/36 mid compact chainrings (we...

I'd be cautious of a Ti fork. I'm sure some good ones have been made, but I had a ride on an Italian custom made road bike with a Ti fork that liked to flex and resonate with front braking. This...

Iron Horse Race Reg Filling Fast

They dropped the USCF license requirement of the RR and have only 150 mens and 50 womens in an 'open' race. This is totally filled up and we registered for the Citizens Tour instead. Since there is...

That's good with the discs and beefy fork. Our coupled Supremo has road side pull brakes and an Renolyds fork. With pedals it was coming in at 33.7lbs before we put the stoker drop bars on. Now...

Thanks, colotandem. Do you know if Laramie Enduro entries are transferable? We might have a chance to get a couple of entries from other racers if they aren't able to compete? I raced the first...

Turning left over the bridge to go up Lefthand Canyon, a single rider coming down the canyon yells "you're f###ing crazy!" We usually get that comment at the bottom of the downhill. ;)

From here in Boulder, "mtnbke" looks like a total kook. The first thing he does is slam the bike the happy/proud customer bought. On top of that he makes some asinine comments. :fred:

I have a steel fork with canti-s that I would like to update to a carbon fork but continuing to use canti-s. Let me know when you sell your canti fork.
