tandems & triples

2005-09-21 14:08:59.652218+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

The Tandem@Hobbes mailing list has had some traffic recently after someone found this tandem for sale (prior art appears to be back into the late 1980s, at least), accompanied by this wonderful English description:

Taste: “Shuangjie” brand bicycle ridden by double persons wishes lovers under heaven riding on a same bicycle with touching feeling, husband accompanied by wife, enjoying recreation by both father and son, riding with romance, pizzazz, pleasure of harmony and unification and pride differing from others.

The compact design set off a flurry of "how closely can you pack riders together", which lead to this tiny little triplet (and how the riders fit on it, which must be one of those things you just can't do publicly outside of San Francisco), and a recumbent/upright/prone combo.
