We've been very happily married for 15 years, and I believe we are closer than most of our married friends. However, athletically, we've grown apart a bit. I run and mostly bike. Nancy walks. With our Q Sport, all that has changed. My poor Trek bikes sit quietly on their hangers in the garage while we happily roll together all over Humboldt County. Though Nancy really hasn't bicycled much at all, we went 25 miles on our maiden voyage, followed by 27 the next day, and 34 yesterday. The bike is an absolute gem and has given us no trouble (though I do hope to become somewhat quicker at dis- and re-assembly). We have added an aspect to our relationship that we've never shared before. When we used to run together, I always went slower than I wanted, and Nancy faster than she wished. On the Q, we can each work as hard as we want and both get an excellent workout. We're already talking about doing some bike touring. Whole new vistas have opened up for us. Bike Friday Rocks!

Michael, we have been meaning to review our new bike and this gave us the little push that we needed. Our tube size is 20 x 1.125-1.5PV-406. The label shows 18 x 1 3/8. We have presta valves. We received our beautiful, blue Tandem Q in late November, 2002. It is a terrific 30th anniversary present to ourselves. It came neatly packed in the two carlton cases. After watching the video, we were able to put it together without too much difficulty and just a little assistance in gear/cable adjustment from someone more mechanically inclined than we are. After the cold weather turned into Spring in the midwest, we were able to ride a couple shorter routes. In April, we ventured down to the SWTR in April in Tulsa and had a great time. Everything worked great! In fact, the captain reports that the SRAM dual drive 3 x 9 hub system shifts better than our "big wheel" tandem, and he loves the STI set-up. We opted for the Cane Creek Thudbuster suspension and the stoker doesn't even notice any bumps! We debated, then opted for the 406 wheels with Schwalbe City Marathon tires and are very pleased with that decision. We have enjoyed the tandem so much, we've not attempted to transform the Q into a single yet. Will report when we do. We loved working with a smaller company with such customer-oriented service. A real rarity these days. This high level of genuine interest was apparent throughout the sales process and now also in the follow-ups to make sure everything is right. By the way, the current tandem we are comparing the Q with is one we have loved to ride for the past 6 years. We consider the above a testimony to a great bike. With the added capability to travel easily with us, we look forward to many trips to come.

My wife and I recently completed a 3-week trip to Switzerland with our Project Q. The bike performed great amd we were always the center of attention when we stopped. We could easily dismantle the bike and hop a train to the top (i.e. Zermat) and then cycle downhill all the way to Lake Geneva.
Now that I'm home, I intend to also take the single on business trips. Instead of watching TV in the evenings, I'll be out seeing the countryside on single Project Q.
