I saw this unusual tandem bicycle in Santa Cruz last week. I’m trying to figure out some of the weird features of this tandem.
- How does that big ring inside the timing chain stay in place?
- What is that extra set of cranks under the stokers bars for? Russ suggests these might be hand cranks, but I think they might allow a very short rider to pedal recumbent style.
- What about that handle that appears to stick out obliquely from the stoker’s saddle? Another hint that this might be for a short rider?
