It was especially wonderful to learn all this stuff because tandems are notorious fussbudgets when it comes to gear adjustment. We've been getting 2-3 weeks or 150-200 miles out of a gear adjustment and the bike shop guys are getting a little tired of seeing us. Now we can do it ourselves! Yea, Liz!
