 Cycling Show Pitch (Attn Netflix Execs)

 Battling the scam sites....

 Tandem kickstand
For that rig I recommend a Pletscher (Esge) double leg kickstand. It isn't going to hold up a child stoker though! Nothing can do that. Not even an Ursus Jumbo (sp). They do best with a static load... (49 views, 1 replies)

 What's your favorite tandem frame for fully loaded touring?
I suspect that there is truth to this statement. We have an older 1984 Rodriguez and a new Bilenky that we have done 4,000+ km self supported tours with. The Bilenky is easy to stand and pedal. We... (1,840 views, 19 replies)
