    So anyone familiar with “sociable” two wheelers:

    recumbent sociables:

    A couple of upright sociables:

    How is control on this side by side arrangement?

    Any crank timing issues impacting balance?

    Do the single BB versions have crank/BB strength issues or do they use some thick cast cranks?

    Asside from the obvious aero drag of this arrangment and greater width occupied, any other issues come to mind?
