    Thanks for the new episode! It saved my evening dog walk. I was listening to another cycling podcast about Zwift. Not really my thing. I checked and saw you had a new episode.

    I’m all down for the exploring new roads the past few weeks. I’ve been amazed to expand my menu of great nearby climbs on quiet roads that don’t go anywhere.

    Also that tandem sounds really cool. Being so widely adjustable should make it useful for a very long time. I didn’t have the funds or the space to get a tandem when my 3 were young and I wonder if they would have been more interested. I did take them to a lot of cool places in the tot trailer.

    When my kids were smaller, for a while I had a Bike Friday tandem, which has many of the same properties as your Co-Motion (disassembles and fits a huge range of sizes). It did the job, and I have good memories associated with that bike, but if I were to do it all over again, I’d probably buy a Co-Motion if only because I prefer the handling of full-sized wheels. One of the trickier problems to solve with small kids on a tandem was the rear crank length. I’m curious what you’re using on your tandem.

      I have some cranks from Davinci that are drilled for three different lengths: 170, 160 and 150mm. I can simply move the pedals if I’m putting an adult on the back. They are pretty genius.
