    Here's what I do with too much time on my hands. If you look carefully at the picture of the new EZ
    tandem in BentriderOnline's "Stop the Presses" section, you see this picture:
    http://www.bentrideronline.com/STP/EZ_Tandem.jpg If you look at the picture in Sun Bicycle's page,
    you see this: http://www.sunbicycles.com/bikes/pic_eztandem.jpg These are, in fact, identical
    pictures, the one from Sun's site simply has the color changed and the picture is a bit smaller. The
    pictures are really identical: the spokes are all in the same angles, the straps on the backs of the
    seats are the same, the highlights are the same, etc. Perhaps Sun decided to make pictures available
    of pre-painted units, and filled in the colors digitally. More likely, they took a picture of this
    bike http://www.bentrideronline.com/STP/SunTandem.jpg and digitally colored it yellow.

    No big deal, I just found it interesting.

    OMG, you're right! HAHA, I never noticed. Well they had to have a picture to put in the catalog and
    the production bikes weren't ready yet. Good eye!

  3. Looks a lot like a homebuilt tandem I once ran across while surfing the web. I believe it was
    called the SiklRoad, or something to that effect. I had bookmarked the site, but THAT was two
    hard-drives ago......

    The Silk Road recumbent tandem was built by John Huddleson who had an article published about it in
    RCN #59, pp.26-27 (Sept./Oct. 2000).

    The web page is at < http://tender-learning-care.com/mybike.htm >.
