    I am excited to be trying our first tandem ride this weekend though I am keen to know how we are going to keep up, or at least how we are going to maneuver around the area.

    My partner and I have been doing this for over months now, though have only been around plain areas which offer no hazard even with such a sucker of balance. But we have always showed great strength and advantage over it. I guess that we just have to try and see how things are going to work for us.

    I would never get on the back of a DH tandem. That seems just stupid.

    It's a Calfee trade show bike; it belongs to Calfee and my friend takes it out on loan. I think the price tag is in the neighborhood of $20,000.

    I planned on racing it at Sea Otter but things did not work out.

    "I would never get on the back of a DH tandem. That seems just stupid." I suppose you're right, even my stoker said it was stupid fun.

    Every downhill of every race we ever did racing our tandem( last tandem race was in 2004) was a DH race, used to have fun picking of single bike riders on the DH's

    Probably safer than being on the front of a tandem.

    I got pretty bruised up but my stoker was unscathed. Here's the clip. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llvg...JMDSeQMOLSH_D8 For me the Kami is just about the original race course, as a result we didn't put in much practice on stage two. We finished with a bent chain guide and without a working drive chain. I love that race.

    I really wish I would have seen some DH and slalom tandem. I have never seen this before and the thought of it seem crazy to me.
