If I was on the back it would have to be a chick in the front. I couldn't imagine my head being that close to another guys ass.

The front crankset does not seem to be connected to the stoker's crank. Interesting. <BR> <BR>OK, I just looked and it's shaft drive. I wonder how they defy the law of physics and make that even close to the same efficiency as a chain. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by roverjohn on December 23, 2009)

Its a concept bike!!!!! <BR>Doesn't mean its going into production tomorrow!!! <BR> <BR>Relax. <BR>I think it looks sweet. <BR>The front man is going to be stretched way out though.

I like it. I'd like to strap my boss on the back seat after eating chili the night before.

It looks pretty cool. <BR> <BR>I'm with ya on your boss idea Richard.

Yeah the face to bum proximity would be a huge issue, but I bet the hotties would be all over you on that bike, with your shaved legs and your spendex and your gloves. Yeah, I cycle because it makes me look cool.

"Supersonic Divorce Machine" <BR> <BR>Haha, love it! <BR> <BR>Not a chance in hell I would put my gf behind me on that bad boy.

grant_west 01-04-2010 8:20 PM

Mark: on a Tandem the "Stoker" or person of power rides in the back. Im guessing you would be the one in the back. <BR>Its funny this bike is so awesome but all I see people talking about is how they don't wanna have another guys but so close, LOL
