I'm so pleased that Peter's Tandem is going well. It is early days but hey.
My number one kidiback tandem tip, well triplet in my case but it applies to tandems as well, is this:
Keep the toe clips on for all riders. Then tie the leading edge of the rear pedals to the traling edge of the pedals infront (repeat for triplets) with some thin elasticated cord.
This has 2 useful effects.
The pilot's pedals are always facing the right way up.
When riding solo the rear pedals don't spin around catching the road when you sling it around a corner.
