I'm a huge hypocrite when it comes to my loved ones. I prefer my wife stay away from all forms of two wheeled transportation. I finally gave in via the purchase of a tandem, and it has become my favorite form of two wheeled transport. I'm currently looking at ways to rig something out of 80/20 T-Slot framing to switch it between tandem and cargo bike duty.
