First dust off ride of the year

I've been riding and keeping my fitness level up over the last few months but my wife has let hers slide. We finally got out on the tandem the other evening for a shake down ride. I've recently replaced the Davinci cranks with a set from FSA and upgraded to 105 shifters and a 10 speed cassette in the rear. Going from a 3x8 Claris drivetrain to a 3x10 105 drivetrain was a night and day difference.
For a shake down ride, it was a blast. I've got new tires to go onto it and I need to check the wheels for tension, etc... so it was only a 10 mile ride but it was a blast.

We're still waiting for our custom tandem to get on the build table so we're riding the old one for now.
