Hed 3 wheels on a tandem

Are the Hed 3 wheels sturdy enough to be used on a tandem?

I used them on mine for ultra distance racing. I found them too stiff for my Calfee though. My Calfee is a little beefier than most, so it might not be as much of an issue with you if you have one. It actually upset the handling at high speed (50mph+) If you ride with a tandem frame with some more give in they'd probably be fine. At lower speeds they weren't a problem, just a harsher ride.

We've used one for the front to TT. It worked fine.
