What this forum needs is a couple of pages of pictures of the junk that you own. A tandem that no one would ride since your don't even know why tandems have mix and match problems. And who would want to ride that close to you anyway? I know, show us a picture of a fixie and tell us all that it is different from a track bike. I can print that out and show it around the local track.Yeah, but can you write a few pages about how steel and carbon handle without ever describing how they handle? Maybe casually toss in your manly FTP...er...specifically express it as a ratio of your shoulder width, hip angle on the bike at 40 KPH and maybe compare yourself to a fellow club member that gets to the top faster despite having Alzheimers.
I'm going to have to take up competitive drinking. I have hopes of reaching the elite ranks so I don't ever have to deal with people that have no attachment to reality.
And not only do you not know what mix and match means but you're so stupid you think it refers to components. That makes it pretty plain that no one would ride on a tandem with you so why are you showing pictures of one?Mix and Match problems? Well, moron...there's no Campagnolo on it to clash with the shimaNO ****!
And your fat, dumb ass would get lost finding 'your way around' a velodrome. LMFAO! This squid is is one crazoid little dork.
Isn't it time for you to measure your shoulders again?!
There you have it - someone that hasn't ridden a tandem or certainly hasn't on any hard ride TELLS ME TO READ SOMETHING! This is the sort of people posting here - DUHHHH, I AIN'T DUN NUTIN MYSELF BUT THIS ADVERTISEMENT SAY IT EASY. What a jerk.Ok so since there is still this pity argument going on about tandems, lets have the ill informed read a bit...assuming he can read:
Tandems are not that difficult to ride Tom which is why I think you never been on one, because you talked about finding someone with the same strength as you, maybe in racing that's true but you never have mentioned that you race tandems so that equation is out the window; but outside that world I see tandems all the time with a husband and a wife, father and a child, such disparity between the two riders yet they ride just fine unlike what you said.
Why don't you come out here and I will show you a ghetto?
