Aren’t Tandems Hard to Ride?
A few years ago, the best bicycles-built-for-two were clunky, unwieldy and totally unsatisfactory. Today’s best tandems, by comparison, are anything but. With proper design, tubing and components, a tandem, by virtue of its weight and wheelbase, is exceptionally safe and stable. Compared to single bikes, good tandems are also faster and more comfortable. Two can ride more easily and efficiently than one.
