    I saw a tandem tadpole recumbent once. It was huge. Must’ve been 12 ft. long.

  2. Steve says:

    These tandem tadpoles are fast. There are two riders, with four legs, pedaling against essentially the same wind resistance as a single triker faces. All that power allows the tandem to outpace the solo trikes. The drawbacks, of course, are that tandems are 12 feet long, not very maneuverable, and are very heavy compared to solo trikes. This one, from ICE of yore, is interesting because the rear rider faces the rear, whereas Greenspeed and TerraTrike tandems of today have both riders facing forward. What a kick it must be for the rear passenger facing backwards as the trike rockets down a steep and long mountain pass! Wow – it would be a real thrill to try it just once before I check out. See ya’ …

    Very interesting, however i don’t believe I would want to spend the entire time pedaling backward .
