I agree. That's the part of this whole debate that bothers me. It's not that those of us who care about it can't appreciate that some people don't, it's that some people try to tell us it's an imaginary problem and that we should just get over it. On a single I'm willing to put up with some TCO, though I'm very glad that Mike Barry designed my Mariposa without it. On a tandem I would not consider putting up with it - it's too dangerous when the person controlling the bike doesn't have complete control of the pedals. -Ken -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "RBW Owners Bunch" group.
