E-stay tandem on eBay. I posted this in the "MTB eBay & Marketplace Watch" section, but I think these pics also need to be posted here for posterity.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tandem-Medium ... 5132759827

Not available to me in the USA, so hopefully an RBer in the UK will be buying this and posting more pics here.

Bang goes the theory about a short rear end aids climbing - delightfully bonkerz!

Here's another odd e-stay, the chainless (shaft drive) e-stay. Not retro, but it seems appropriate to post here.

"comfortable and easy to ride with a good air-proof and no greasy dirt, which is smooth and brisk."
Wise words, indeed. How can you go wrong?

Of course, you'd need your own theme music if you're ever stylin' on a shaft drive bike:

Can you dig it?
