I'm about to place the order for our Tetra Tetra Tandem at long last!
My biker babe and I have settled on: DuPont ChromaLusion paint (Blazberry) fading to clearcoated carbon on the forks and rear stays,
Chris King headset, Easton Carbon drop bars, Shimano Ultegra Brifters, Ultegra dual pivot brakes with XT long pads, Phil Wood hubset w/butted spokes & 36 hole Mavic CXP33 rims, Profile Airwings stoker bars, Terry Fly and Butterfly saddles, DaVinci tandem crankset w/54-40-28 chainrings, XTR rear derailleur/Ultegra front, Panaracer Roll-y Pol-y 700 x 27 wire bead tires, Arai drum brake to be put on for the really hilly centuries.
Well, that ought to get it done.Spoke Wrench

What a super bike! I assume this isn't your first tandem. What have you ridden previously? This is the 25th year of tandeming for my wife and myself. We have a Santana Noventa, which is a pretty nice bike, but I think you've taken it to a whole new level. I hope you will give us reports on how it rides.
