how do the french french?

That’s a couple of drag queens. Anyway, back to the tandem. It’s because a tandem bike requires two people to operate that so many weird people want them. Can we go so far as to say they are un-American? It’s totally socialist! People working together to subvert the single passenger car paradigm!
All in all Americans are taught independence and learning to operate a bike while conjoined to the single looping chain of a tandem is not independence. It’s team building.


  1. In Milwaukee there’s a guy who built a tandem bike for 8-10 passengers. He sits at the front of the bike and everyone else sits facing inward, like you would at a picnic table. Why? So they can ride around town and drink beer while they pedal. I’ll see if I can get a picture of it, might help to explain.

  2. I want to say how proud I am that you used the word “Paradigm”. You’re coming along nicely, young Jedi.

  3. I’ve seen something similar here in SF. It’s like a party bus. I’m afraid to try it, seems like rollerblades, they might laugh at me.
