    Any other singlespeed tandems out there?

    Here's a pic of us racing our Viciouc Cycles 29er singlespeed tandem at Sea Otter this year. This was our first race on it, as we've only had it for a few months. We ran a 32x22 at Sea Otter. The bike worked great going uphill, and on the downhills we had enough weight loasting along that we even overtook a few geared bikes along the course.

    It was so incredibly fun to ride that now I'm wondering why there aren't more?

    I know that Curtis Inglis has one. And I heard that "somebody" that has one is coming to SSWC08 in Napa with one. I'm curious if anybody out there in MTBR land has one?

    Are you standing on the climbs?

    Seems difficult to time your standing climbing and not fight each other.

    PS: I'm in the middle of a Rohloff/SS/fixie-able tandem build right now.

    Yeah, lots of standing on the long climbs - much like riding a SS single bike. Standing is easy as long as you do it together. I'd lock out the Reba so we could stand up on the long climbs.

    I have just returned form a vacation and hope to be stoking on a new SS Cyclocross Tandem this next week.
    Parts have been arriving since the NAHBS in Portland, and my riding partner and Mechanic has been putting it together while I was out.

    Sorry to have missed the Sea Otter but I was in a much better place (read warm water diving) .

    Maybe even some pics after we get a few miles on it.

    Pirate Tandem

    This one raced at the recent New Zealand Singlespeed Championships in Rotorua.
    They were pretty fast, even riding with pirate hats and swords!
