The Bulletin Board Archives
contain the first nine-years of my periodic news updates and
other miscellaneous ramblings posted to TheTandemLink.com's home
page. As noted above, in January 2010 I started a Blog that now
serves as my primary outlet for tandem-related news and ramblings.

for every tandem cycling club in the World that we're aware of,
to include all of the Clubs that make up Tandem Club UK and all

What is perhaps
the most comprehensive collection of links to tandem related
information on the Internet. This is the heart of TheTandemLink.com.
A huge collection
of links for the beginner looking to learn more about tandems
and tandeming as well as a plethora of links to information on
bicycle fitting, bicycle sciences, safety & advocacy, how-to
Web sites and discussion forums where you can learn more or interact
with other enthusiasts.
for beginners who are just starting their search for a first
tandem, links to many of the tandem dealers who cater to tandem
shoppers, links to all tandem builders in the World, as well
as Web sites where you can find classified ads for used tandems
to meet your needs. This page also features links to our exclusive
Tandem Tandem Price Estimating Tool
Links to Web
sites of tour operators who cater to tandem enthusiasts, links
to other very large tour operator indices, travel logs, information
on S&S couplers -- perhaps the greatest innovation in bicycle
travel technology to date --, and links to resources for transporting
your tandems such as car racks, trailers and shipping cases.
Links to a
few of the publications currently in print that cater to the
tandem enthusiast. There aren't many links here because tandems
are such a small niche market; however, for the publications
that are available we'd encourage you to consider subscribing
to that these few survivors can continue to serve our needs.
and subscription information for what is the largest Web-based
Mailing List dedicated to the discussion of tandems and tandeming.
If you yearn to know what's happening in the Tandem world, have
tandem-specific questions, or just want to get to know hundreds
of other tandem enthusiasts who share your interests this is
the list you'll want to subscribe to.
and subscription information to a discussion forum for an even
smaller collection of tandem enthusiasts who ride off-road tandems.
There are approximately 240 members of this list and the discussions
cover the range of topics that you'd expect to hear at the trail
head -- everything from hard-core technical talk to recommendations
for a great micro-brew.

This Web Site
is basically a non-commercial, personal web site that we (that
would be me) keep up and running for the benefit of tandem enthusiasts.
It was developed as a free and easy to navigate resource for
folks searching the Internet to learn more about tandems, tandem
clubs, tours, events, and the like. It was developed as a direct
result of my own efforts to learn more about tandems and tandemings
back in the late 1990's, a time when finding good
information was a challenge... which is still true today.
The site is essentially
a collection of over 2,000 links to other Web sites that have
been categorized on approximately 18 different web pages to allow
visitors to "drill-down" for additional information
and links. The only organic materials on the site are the bulletin
board entries which I compose based on whatever comes across
my computer and tweaks my interest, a used tandem pricing tool
and a variety of articles that I have cobbled together over the
years. At the time of its creation and to this day, we believe
it to be the most comprehensive tandem-specific Web site on the
Internet. I am presently rethinking the content of this site
and may begin to add more organic content to provide one-stop-shopping,
so to speak.
important of all, your visits to the site are just that; your
visits. We do not collect data on our visitors, sell advertising
nor collect fees from the Web sites we link to. Yes, there are
now Google ads on most of the pages because, well, it helps to
defray some of the costs to keep this site up and running; however,
those are the only revenue generators... the rest of the links
on our site don't generate any income. While perhaps this is
short-sighted on my part, it does allow me to remain objective
with regard to what I post to my site.
articles of my own are linked off of this site, the vast majority
of my writings can be found in the archives of Tandem@Hobbes
under my own name and BikeForums.net where I post under a nom
de plume. A search of those repositories will yield thousands
of detailed articles that address a variety of tandem related
subjects.... enough to fill a few books.
Thanks for visiting.
