true, I wasn't familiar. However, I'd choice to spec a bike with a longer head tube, and fewer spacers, but it's your face.

That's great if you're buying custom but as I'm sure you know, you can't "spec" head tubes on off the shelf frames, but what you can do is purchase the proper components, like the correct fork and dial in the fit, which I did and my face is just fine thanks and the bike fits fine and ride great.

why not run a stem with 17 degree (or more) rise, and eliminate some spacers?

Hope to see folks at the upcoming NWTR...

Beatiful bike and look at the legs on you two! Nice picture!

Having some trouble figuring out how to submit a pic hopefully this works. 9% for 1.25 miles winery on top, it worked out.

Congratulations you two. Next year we plan on giving you guys a run for your money as we will be in your category. This year has been a big bust for my training as work has forced cycling to take a bit of a back seat. Next year I plan on training harder, smarter, and being more focused. You two are my examples of what you can do at our advanced age LYMI

Let's do the math - the 110+ tandem combined age category - sweet - that must mean that since Red Rider and I are only 39, you and Hermes must be at least 71! You guys look pretty darn good!

That would make you and RR the trophy brides.

You young whippersnappers have no respect.

A recent photo by Evergreen Tandem Club photographer Barb Angell. Near-vintage Kuwahara (with previous Reynolds single-bike all-carbon fork, recently swapped out for a Wound Up tandem fork). Trudy is in back.

After a ride

This is a pic of us after finishing this year's BAK (Biking Across Kansas). The Missouri Rivr is running at near capacity in the background as you can see. Feel sorry for all you Iowa folks!
