Wow, three tandems! We have two road bikes, a mountain bike, a folding mountain bike, and a hybrid for just the two of us. We had a chance to buy a tandem when friends upgraded, but my husband was sure that he couldn't deal with my backseat driving and that we would both have control issues. He was so afraid of sharing a bike with me that he wouldn't even do a test drive!

If you have health, you probably will be happy, and if you have health and happiness, you have all the wealth you need, even if it is not all you want.

Yup, we now have 3 tandems (at least 2 tandems and 1 frame),also 2 mountain bikes, 1 road bike, 1 recumbent, a trail-a-bike and toddler trailer, and a Honda Rebel motorcycle. We are bike poor, but sure have fun. Put the trail-a-bike behind the tandem and we look like a train, but the grands love it.

DH started ordering components for the new bike, it sure will be pretty when he gets it finished.

About 9 last night I heard a big truck pull up outside the house. When I saw it was a UPS I though, good, my new faucet is here, but as he came out of the dark I realized it was MUCH to large for a bathroom faucet (and it said Chucks Bikes on the side). Seems DH ordered a new fire engine red Tsunami mountain bike tandem frame. Now he will have to buy components, get it all set up, and we will have our choice of 3 to ride.
