    Wow, double human power plus a motor. Must be very fast!

    Brilliant! The tail gunner in the rear seat can keep an eye out for the law!

    How do you know if the guy in the back is not just coasting?

    great looking build, nice lines and solid look.
    hope this type of engineering is embraced rather than banned.

    You don't, unless you can feel them slacking. I just came back from a ride with my 12 year old son. His chain came off about a mile from home, and I never knew. We had the motor on for that time though so it didn't matter.

    Having ridden as captain and stoker on numerous other traditional tandems, it's striking how much communication needs to happen with the stoker. Lots of "Coast now", "Feet down", "Bump!", "Downhill ahead" cries happen. Pretty fun though.

    Sorta reminds me of

    the Pushmepullyou from the 1960's Disney Doctor Doolittle.

    Verrrry interesting.
