    Riding a tandem with somebody I don't even know from Craigslist just sounds like an odd proposition.

    This is classic:

    I am not offering a salary, but you could get famous (on YouTube).
    I am making every effort to have a safe test. I will ask you to sign a release to relieve me of liability for any injury you might suffer.

    What was that line from Young Guns? "I'll make you famous" ...

    When working at a bike shop in Ohio, I rode stoker behind the 2001 National Criterium Champion (he was also a mechanic at the shop). He raced last year for the Kenda Procycling team. It was scary as crap...but fun!

    I wonder if it is a tall bike tandem?

    Was that Ben? I remember when he won that race -- it was my first weekend racing as a Cat. 4. Downer's Grove was an awesome, if *very scary* course -- that last corner was a killer!

    rider needs to be between 5'4" and 5'8" weighing less than 120 lbs. I think the guy is just looking for a girlfriend.

    actually this one is kinda tame compared to some of the other stuff on craigslist.

    If you ever want a good laugh have a read on the "best of" craigslist.

    I know a little about this.

    It could be safe or quite dangerous. I guarantee, exhilaration, death, or something in-between.

    It's a very unconventional tandem. Imagine a recumbent rider on your bars and you'll begin to get the idea.

    Sesame oil is good.

    Now you're cast of steel and cast aside. Broken dreams maybe, but you haven't died
